Bill.com, the leader in digital business payments, today announced it is expanding operations to Houston as the company enters a new phase of growth. With plans to open its 25,000 square foot space in the Westchase district in Spring 2019, the company is actively hiring a team including developers and customer support professionals with other roles to follow.
“We conducted an extensive national search to select our first location outside the San Francisco Bay Area. We’re growing at a high speed and it’s critical to find the right mix of talent, quality of life and business-friendliness in our next office location. We found all this and more in Houston and are delighted the city can support our next phase of growth,” said René Lacerte, CEO of Bill.com.
Recognized as one of San Francisco Business Times’ and Silicon Valley Business Journal’s “2018 Best Places to Work”, Bill.com is partnering with the Greater Houston Partnership, the region’s trade and economic development group, and local tech connector Station Houston. To kick-start the company’s hiring operation, it will participate in Station Startup Gigs and Rice University hiring events on February 19 and 24.
“The City of Houston is thrilled to welcome the Bill.com team,” said Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner. “We’ve always been a global and innovative city and the Bill.com announcement is another great example of Houston’s building momentum as a leading digital tech hub. We offer a great place to live, work and grow a business, especially for startups and entrepreneurs.
