One of the fastest-growing companies in South Florida aims to attract more developers with a creative overhaul to its Boca Raton office.
Created by local artist Elizabeth “Melo” Hutchinson, Touchsuite’s new developer space was created based on the vision of team leader Farshad Tafazzoli, chief products officer, who wanted to create a workspace that mirrored his Fort Lauderdale neighborhood, FAT Village.
Along with the unveiling of the new digs, Touchsuite announced that it now employs 81 people in its South Florida headquarters — a 42 percent growth from its 2012’s tally of 36 employees.
The company anticipates hiring more employees by the end of the year.
“We at TouchSuite have experienced tremendous success over the past several years, which we attribute in no small part to our emphasis on recruitment and hiring the absolute best people in their respective fields,” said TouchSuite founder and CEO Sam Zietz. “We are very fortunate that so much talent exists right here in South Florida, thanks to partners like Wyncode and our area universities, and this new developers space is just one example of how we attempt to provide a positive and inspiring environment in which they can flourish and start turning out disruptive technology.”
Last week, TouchSuite was ranked No. 160 on the Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. — for the third consecutive year. On Thursday, the company was named No. 17 on the Business Journal’s list of Fastest-Growing Companies with revenue over $25 million. The tech company recorded revenue of $26.67 million in 2014 – a 98.68 percent jump from 2012.
