Afterpay the leader in “Buy Now, Pay Later” payments, today announced San Francisco as the home of its new North American headquarters.
Based in the 11-story landmark Phelan Building at 760 Market Street, Afterpay’s new North American headquarters is situated between the technology and retail hubs of Financial District and Union Square – making it the ideal location to support the company’s rapid growth in North America.
Afterpay will occupy a 50,000-square-foot space across two floors for its 300+ Bay Area-based employees. The layout and features of the office will support Afterpay’s new flexible workplace approach – allowing employees to work from the office, remotely, or a hybrid of the two. The office will feature more than 25 conference rooms, a large space to host company-wide meetings and events, a product testing lab, a game area, a full-service coffee bar, and several open collaboration spaces.
“Afterpay’s new office and its location perfectly captures Afterpay’s business at the intersection of technology, finance, shopping, and culture,”
“We are so thrilled to establish our North American headquarters in this great city and welcome our employees to this beautiful space which combines the city’s rich history with a modern and flexible work environment.”Nick Molnar, Co-CEO and Co-Founder, Afterpay.
With its triangular-shaped architecture, the Phelan Building is reminiscent of the Flatiron building in New York and was built after the original structure was destroyed by fire in the San Francisco 1906 earthquake. The building was renovated in recent years with a unique architectural interior that features exposed ceilings and other creative finishes, while still preserving historic San Francisco.
Afterpay is working with RAISE, a technology-powered commercial real estate brokerage, across workplace strategy, brokerage, and construction project management. The companies did a diligent review of the entire market before settling on the Phelan Building, which is the only building of its kind and has the tech and creative capabilities that make it a great place to work in San Francisco.
Afterpay was named one of this year’s Best Places to Work in the Bay Area by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal and is committed to building on this with its new office location.
