Chicago – April 3, 2013 – hybris, the world’s fastest-growing commerce platform provider ranked “leader” by both principal analyst firms, today announced its plan to open a new endurance sports themed office in Boulder, Colorado, US.
The new office, slated to open spring 2013, aims to create a unique working environment where employees are encouraged to be their best selves, both professionally and athletically. Not only will hybris employees have the opportunity to work on state-of-the-art, cutting-edge software, they will also have access to on-site facilities and services that encourage fitness, including a CompuTrainer™ cycling room, treadmills, massage therapists and coaches. The new hybris office will empower employees to plan work, life and training schedules so that time is maximized both in and out of work.
Boulder is known for its thriving outdoor culture. Set at 1,655 meters above sea level, Boulder was ranked by Outside Magazine as one of its Best Towns, listed by National Geographic as one of America’s Best Adventure Towns and was named by Inside Triathlon as its Top Triathlon Town. With over 300 days of sunshine per year and its booming tech scene, Boulder continually attracts a demographic of intelligent and fitness-conscious individuals.
“At hybris, we recognize the value of great people and the characteristics that make great employees,” said Marc Graveline, Vice President of R&D at hybris. “By nature, endurance sports attract a type of person who strives to work hard, have passion and determination, and a desire to be their best. In Boulder, we hope to bring together two ideals under one roof: high-performance software development and endurance training. Employees will be encouraged to strike a balance between work and life in a way that no other employer has before. It is about wanting to create great software and technology in a great environment.”
hybris is looking to staff the new office with software engineers, quality assurance professionals and technical writers. Interested candidates can read more about the initiative, and apply for jobs, at www.endurancecrew.hybris.com
