The Massachusetts-based online payments technology company will host an event to celebrate its recent success and the expansion of its HQ in Waltham, MA
BOSTON, MA – June 12, 2019 – BlueSnap, an online payments technology company, today announced the expansion of its headquarters, which is located in Waltham, MA. A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held on June 12 to mark the opening of an additional 12,000 square feet of office space. The event, which will include an opportunity to tour the full space as well as a panel discussion led by Ralph Dangelmaier, BlueSnap’s CEO, will be attended by local business leaders in addition to BlueSnap customers, partners and employees.
With this new space BlueSnap has expanded its staff, raising the global headcount to approximately 165 employees worldwide. There are currently 65 BlueSnap employees in Waltham, and the leadership team plans to add another 40 team members by the end of next year. The new space includes a number of features to enhance the BlueSnap work environment, including huddle spaces to foster collaboration and standing desks to encourage mobility. Larger spaces will help support all-employee gatherings with an improved open meeting area and encourage networking by providing more opportunities to recharge during breaks in a large, communal lunch room. Employees will also have a chance to celebrate this latest milestone during the upcoming summer outing to a local Boston distillery. This expansion will continue to support the growth of the All-in-One Payment Platform, which enables both B2B and B2C businesses to increase sales and reduce costs.
“BlueSnap has seen rapid growth over the last year and significantly expanding our corporate headquarters has been an essential step to support this progression,” said Ralph Dangelmaier, CEO of BlueSnap. “We are excited to come together today with other notable Boston area business leaders to not only showcase our own growth but how the FinTech market as a whole is thriving in the Bay State.”
Payment technology startups like BlueSnap, Flywire and MineralTree have joined well-known players such as Bank of America and TSYS in establishing Boston as a hub for financial technology and other related services. By making Massachusetts the home of their corporate headquarters, or choosing to have a large presence in the area, all of these companies are now revolutionizing the industry from the east coast. In order to explore this topic further, a panel of payments industry experts will discuss why Boston is a hotbed for FinTech investment and how these companies are currently addressing the most significant challenges in the industry. The interactive panel will take place before a ribbon cutting ceremony, and it will cover multiple aspects of the booming FinTech market in Massachusetts and what this means for the growing companies that are powering this industry shift.
