Enterprise storage firm Box has announced plans to hire 100 new employees in EMEA and move to larger officers in London as it continues to grow rapidly.
The firm first moved to London last June but has quickly outgrown that space and is now set to move to new offices as part of its plans to hire new staff.
“We have a goal to hire 100 people in EMEA by the end of the year and have already hired 50 employees since we launched last June,” European manager David Quantrell said in a statement to V3.
“This summer, our London team will be moving into a larger facility that caters for 150-plus employees with an option to double the size of the space as we continue to grow."
The European market is the next major area for Box as it also plans French and German office moves but London is to the remain the hub for the firm’s operations.
"Box is investing millions into its London team expansion and the European market. It's critical to our success and we've centralised our European efforts out of London,” added Quantrell.
The London expansion by Box was first revealed by chancellor George Osborne at an event attended by V3 on Thursday.
Box is becoming a major player in the enterprise market as its storage platform offers a dedicated corporate version of tools such as Dropbox and Google Drive with more security and policy control processes in place.
Earlier this year it announced a sizeable customer win of 50,000 seats from Schneider Electric. V3 interviewed Box chief executive Aaron Levie in the last issue of the V3 Tablet App, which you can download for free simply by registering on the V3 website.
