Our headquarters are in the thriving metropolis of Lynnwood, Washington, just North of Seattle. This is a cube-free, pet-friendly, skateboard welcome, open environment that's designed to get people talking, debating the merits of an idea, and having fun. Even though we were founded in 1978, our ~300 person home office culture still feels very start-up-y. And even though we're the home office, you'll find a strong sales culture -- not an administrative culture -- here.
