Roughly nine months after getting acquired for a reported $250 million-plus, eMoney Advisor is making a big investment in its Philadelphia presence.
The fintech company, which employs roughly 330 with 275 in the area, is opening a four-floor, 77,000-square-foot office in Radnor. That’s up from the 44,000 square feet they occupied in Conshohocken, and frankly, it’s just huge for a Philly tech company, at least the ones we cover. To get a sense of how big it is, think about the three floors Impact Hub used to occupy in Kensington — it’s nearly three times that.
The company is looking to hit close to 500 staffers over the next 12-18 months, said VP of Recruiting Mark Constan. They’ll be growing both their San Diego office (call centers, sales, customer support and training) and their Philly office, he said. Constan aims to hire 40-50 developers for the Philly office next year.
They’re working with King of Prussia design firm D2 Interiors on the new space.
Spokeswoman Kelly Waltrich described the new space this way: “modern, open, with a sort of ‘refined industrial’ feel, featuring polished concrete floors, open ceilings, exposed duct work, glass-faced offices, flexible and collaborative workstations, bright vibrant colors and countless playful design elements throughout, including the interconnecting stair well between the 3rd and 4th floors that, with AV connectivity and comfortable seating, will double as our ‘town hall.'”
As per the renderings, the office will also have cubicles.
eMoney chose not to move into the city for a number of reasons, Waltrich said, including the city wage tax, parking and commutes for its employees. They are considering opening a small office in the city.
They move into the new space mid-December.
