One year after it opened its satellite office in Old City, Wilmington, Del.-based IT management company SevOne has moved its Philly-based development team into a bigger space to accommodate growth, according to a release.
SevOne initially opened a satellite development team in Philly as a pilot to see if the city location would help the company attract talent, a spokesman for the company said. It worked.
The new 6,500 square foot space in Center City’s Land Title Building at Broad and Chestnut Street can fit up to 55 employees. SevOne currently employs 30 in its Philly office, which makes up about 11 percent of its 270 total employees. It also has another other satellite development office in Boston.
It’s the first news we’ve seen of a satellite office outgrowing its original space — might the same happen for satellite offices of suburban tech companies like Bentley Systems and the newly-acquired Fiberlink?
As he has for several tech companies in the past year, Mayor Nutter will cut the ribbon on the new office later today. Find some photos below.
