Last week Yammer EMEA reached a milestone – we officially opened our new home in London’s Tech City, signifying our success in Europe’s digital capital. In just 18 months, we have seen the team expand from 3 to 85.
His Royal Highness The Duke of York marked the occasion at a fantastic celebration attended by Yammer employees, partners and customers, and representatives from other Tech City businesses.
Our London office now houses 85 members of staff, including our new developer team, which form the first developer centre outside of the San Francisco headquarters.
When we started in London, there were three of us working in each other’s living rooms and the growth we’ve seen is testament to our team here and the support the Tech City community has provided. Tech City has been crucial for us in recruiting great talent; developers, engineers, and entrepreneurial people in general. Now we are Microsoft’s office in Tech City and we hope this will enable us to further support the community here.
I’d like to thank all our London team for their help and support in making the new office such a success, and am looking forward to the next 18 months as we continue to grow in EMEA.
