Cloud communications platform provider Infobip on May 1 announced the opening of its U.S. headquarters in Jersey City.
Currently, the 5,000-square-foot office employs 16 employees – currently working remotely right now due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The company, with customers that include Uber, Costco and Burger King, has plans to double its employee base by the end of the year and is actively hiring for sales and marketing roles.
“Jersey City has become a rising tech hub and its proximity to multiple carriers based in New Jersey is key for us,” said Yuri Fiaschi, vice president of global sales at Infobip. “Infobip has recently become Tier 1 in the American market, which means it is fully connected with the major wireless carriers. We are now looking forward to becoming an active member in the local community once we can physically be in our office. With that said, we are still impacting the community in a positive manner by generating new jobs and providing support for government and health care institutions during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Infobip said it choose Jersey City because of its status as a rising tech hub, its proximity to multiple carriers based in New Jersey, and easy access to New York City.
The company, which has more than 65 offices across six continents, offers omnichannel communications services such as mobile app messaging, email, SMS, voice, RCS, chat apps and more. Its technology platform has the capacity to reach over seven billion mobile devices and ‘things’ in more than 190 countries connected to over 800 telecom networks.
As part of the company’s efforts to provide support during the current COVID-19 pandemic, Infobip also recently announced it is offering health care and government institutions free access to its technology platform to communicate with their constituencies.
The company is already providing these services to a number of institutions including Ghana’s Ministry of Information, the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control, and the governments of France, India and Pakistan have all utilized Infobip’s platform to power COVID-19 helplines.
