300% Annual Growth Driving Nearly 100 New Hotel Engine Hires In 2019
Denver-based travel tech start-up moves into new headquarters due to significant expansion
Unprecedented growth and a thriving culture of innovation are the reasons behind Hotel Engine’s expansion to a new headquarters this week. With over 10,000 new members joining the hotel booking platform each month, Hotel Engine needed more space for its team’s substantial growth.
Hotel Engine hired 21 new team members in the first quarter — and plans to add 75 more by the end of 2019. When the expanding team settles into the new Hotel Engine headquarters — equipped with collaboration areas, open floor plan, local beers on tap, and an expansive view of the Rocky Mountains — it will provide more space for the company’s continuing growth.
“Hotel Engine has grown more than 300% year-over-year. While that’s already significant, we see real opportunity to dwarf those numbers as we continue to innovate and expand our team,” says Elia Wallen, CEO at Hotel Engine. “We also know our success is built by the skill and passion of our exceptional staff. It’s important we provide a great workspace and a culture worthy of their hard work.”
Denver is officially approaching major “tech hub” status, and Hotel Engine knows it. This 2018 Denver Chamber of Commerce Start-Up of the Year was founded in Denver and continues to deepen its roots in the area by growing its local team and fostering innovation in the community.
Hotel Engine team members are encouraged to look beyond their job description — the company wants its team members to continually pursue personal and professional growth opportunities, speak up with their ideas, and make an impact on the business as a whole. Combine that with the massive market opportunity Hotel Engine has before it, and it’s easy to see why the company is continuously growing.
