OpenGeo Puts Down Roots in Washington, DC
Our federal and DC-based clients and partners have played an instrumental role in our growth over the past few years, and as we logged Amtrak points and frequent flyer miles heading back and forth to Washington, DC to meet with them and others, we began to realize that it might be a good idea for OpenGeo to have a permanent physical presence in the area.
On the heels of our success at FOSS4G North America and with the encouragement of our friends down there, we decided to strike while the iron was hot and open our first DC office. Located in Old Town Alexandria, our office is home to a small but growing group of OpenGeo team members.
Though we’ve only been working out of DC for a short while, we’ve endeavored to reach out to our peers through many channels, and we recently participated in the DC GeoNerds meetup, a monthly meeting of geo-minded people there in the US capital. Amongst the many presentations delivered to the packed house was our Juan Marin‘s talk entitled “Publishing Maps (and more) with GeoServer”, and many of our team members (who happened to be visiting from out of town) were there to cheer him on.
We are excited about this, our third office, and look forward to connecting and growing with our open source and geospatial partners, and delivering the best enterprise support and solutions to our current and future clients in Washington, DC.
Ah, and if you’re looking for a position in the DC area (or know someone who is!), we’re hiring!
