Our new headquarters are in the thriving metropolis of Lynnwood, Washington, just North of Seattle. This is a cube-free, skateboards welcome, open environment that's designed to get people talking, debating the merits of an idea, and having fun. Even though our company was founded in 1978, our 200+ person HQ 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.
