At Code42, we’re firm believers that the right space can lead to an improved product, and therefore a better experience for one’s customers. That’s why we’re proud to announce that we’ve moved into our new 65,000 square-foot global headquarters at 100 Washington Square in downtown Minneapolis. The newly remodeled offices in Minnesota’s technology hub offer a variety of collaborative spaces and destinations designed for bringing people together to improve collaboration and ultimately result in a better product for Code42 customers.
“We built a world-class technology workplace in downtown Minneapolis to attract the region’s most experienced and capable people from our industry,” said Joe Payne, president and CEO of Code42. “If you like to collaborate with your peers on market-leading products, you will love working in this 21st-century office. Bringing together the region’s best people allows us to build, market, sell, and service great products for our customers.”
The new headquarters features town hall space for company-wide gatherings and conference rooms are named after Code42 customers. The open floor workspaces with low partitions and column-free spacing also provide comfortable, creative options that promote movement throughout the day and collaboration between teams. Onsite amenities include a “genius bar” for walkup IT support, whiteboard walls, mother’s rooms, and a central kitchen equipped with a variety of snacks, beverages, gourmet coffee machines, and kombucha and Blackeye Roasting Co. nitro cold brew on tap.
The new office space has been a hit with Code42 employees, who have responded to the many amenities, the views from the office, and the way it has brought the team together.
“I think my favorite part of 100 Washington so far was seeing how many people from different departments came together to eat lunch in the new cafeteria,” said Ryan Vanasse, system implementations engineer at Code42. “Later I was able to easily eat lunch with two different coworkers, even at a weird time. I love this!”
Designed by world-renowned architect Minoru Yamasaki, 100 Washington Square features an outside patio, Zen garden, bocce ball court, and fitness center. Heralded for its sustainability efforts, the building has an EPA ENERGY STAR score of 97, a Walkability Score of 95, and is connected to the extensive Minneapolis Skyway System.
All amenities of the office and the building are designed to keep the Code42 team feeling, happy, focused, and energized, with the end goal of creating the best possible experience for Code42 users.
