New Downtown Portland Office Enables Company to Expand and Invest in Client Success
CashStar, the digital gifting company preferred by the world’s leading brands, today announced that it has moved its headquarters to a new, larger office space in downtown Portland to accommodate its rapid growth. The company’s new 22,500 square-foot state-of-the-art facility readies CashStar for its next phase of growth and scaling operations.
Over the past year, CashStar’s Portland office has grown to more than 110 employees. The new two-floor, open concept workplace is flooded with natural light and offers views of Portland’s harbor. In addition to ample meeting and collaboration space, employees have access to a large eat-in kitchen area with snacks and drinks, a recreational room with ping pong and foosball, ergonomic standing desks, and showers – all in a terrific Old Port location.
“We wanted a space that supports our positive, vibrant culture, provides an outstanding working environment for our employees, and accommodates our ongoing growth and expansion,” said Ben Kaplan, president and CEO of CashStar. “The new office achieves all of these objectives, and enables us to focus our energy and investment in building differentiated mobile payments solutions and driving client success.”
