The US-based collaborative work management platform, Wrike, is expanding further globally with the opening of the company’s first Asian-Pacific headquarters in Melbourne, Australia creating 50 jobs.
Wrike is celebrating their recent expansions with a 16-hour “relay party” starting off in their new Bourke St base.
The other two new headquarters included in the 16-hour celebration include its newest base in Dublin, Ireland — their third base in the city — and their new San Diego office location.
“Opening an APAC HQ is an incredible milestone for Wrike and I cannot think of a better way to celebrate our growth than with an international relay party, spanning three continents,” said Wrike CEO and Founder Andrew Filev in a statement.
Wrike’s new APAC headquarters opens its doors with 10 employees and a goal of creating 50 jobs.
Founder and CEO of Wrike, Andrew Filev chose Melbourne as it is “an amazing city” that provides “access to talent”.
The State Government is committed to the technology and start-up ecosystem, and has already attracted Zendesk, Slack, Square, Alibaba and others to Melbourne, he said.
Wrike has grown its customer base by 697 per cent and its total annual recurring revenue by 334 per cent in the APAC region over the last three years.
“We already have a strong customer base in APAC and I am excited to finally be local,” said Wrike Regional Manager of APAC Fintan Lalor.
