Newtown, PA — September 5, 2013 — EPAM Empathy Lab, an integrated digital strategy and execution practice of EPAM Systems, Inc. (NYSE:EPAM), formally announces the opening of their newest office in Philadelphia, PA. Located in the Sheridan Building, the office is a direct response to the company’s explosive growth and recruitment needs.
“We have seen incredible growth over the last several quarters — the decision to open a new office in Center City is an expression of our commitment to anticipating growth and scaling our practice in the right way,” said Kevin Labick, EPAM’s Global Head of Digital Strategy and Execution. “With many of our current and future employees living in or close to the city, this new location translates into better economics — improved access to transportation, shorter commutes and a more centralized location for client meetings.”
The new office has room for approximately 40 employees and will be used primarily to accommodate new employees, while the Conshohocken, PA location will remain the company’s headquarters. The company also has plans in the works for new offices on the West Coast.
EPAM Empathy Lab is a leader in driving breakthrough omni-channel strategies, experiences and solutions that deliver superior ROI for Fortune 500 and fast-growth organizations, serving brands all over the world, such as Sony, NBCU, Sephora, AIG, DirecTV and Adidas. The company is a two-time Philly.com “Top Places to Work” recipient — a distinction proudly earned by the voice of its own employees. EPAM was also ranked #6 on the 2013 Forbes “America’s 25 Fastest-Growing Tech Companies” list earlier this year.
This Thursday, September 5th, EPAM Empathy Lab will host the first in a series of monthly open houses at the new location. From 8:00 am to 7:00 pm, candidates, local businesses and the media are welcome to visit the space. Breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided. No appointment is required.
