SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- TrueCar, Inc., the negotiation-free car buying and selling mobile marketplace, has increased its commitment to attracting top technology talent to support its expanding business operations by opening a new 8,300-square-foot office in San Francisco's SoMa district.
TrueCar now occupies the 24th floor of the art deco 140 New Montgomery tower, near the Yerba Buena Gardens and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The new space will house TrueCar's expanding engineering and data analytics teams.
"TrueCar is committed to assembling a team of the absolute best data science and engineering talent," said Chief Product Officer Tom Taira. "San Francisco, along with Austin, is a natural extension for us."
Developers in San Francisco will focus on advanced R&D, developing and launching new consumer-facing and data products. The work there will complement efforts at TrueCar's Santa Monica headquarters.
"We've had a presence in San Francisco, but with this investment we're signaling a new phase of talent recruitment," said Scott Painter, TrueCar's chief executive officer and co-founder. "It means we're not just trying to bring people to Los Angeles, but can offer some very talented developers the opportunity to stay and work in San Francisco."
The office was designed by Shubin + Donaldson Architects, Inc., a firm with offices in Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. "The design intent is modeled on TrueCar's motto of transparency," said designer Chris Pilikyan. "Glass walls run floor to ceiling; stand in one corner and you can see all the way through."
