SmartSimple in New York City - Interview with Arthur Lathrop

To celebrate the opening of our New York City office, SmartSimple is publishing a series of interviews with our staff to find out more about this exciting new move (and new city)!

As an integral part of our Technical Community Support team, Arthur Lathrop lends his expertise and commitment to our expansion in New York City. This week, we've spoken to him about his move and the business advantages of our new office location.
First of all, how was the move from Toronto to New York? We hope it went smoothly. 

It did. We have a cozy little office on the cusp of the Flatiron and Chelsea districts of Manhattan, smack dab in the middle of “Silicon Alley”. The adjustment was basically seamless, thanks to the awesome teamwork skills of our Toronto colleagues. We’ve been able to connect with our colleagues in Toronto and Ireland on a daily basis through regular VoIP calls and, of course, using SmartSimple to keep track of our daily tasks and what our coworkers are up to.

What’s the advantage o…

To celebrate the opening of our New York City office, SmartSimple is publishing a series of interviews with our staff to find out more about this exciting new move (and new city)!

This week, we've spoken to SmartSimple Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer Michael Reid about SmartSimple's new location and how it ties into our plans for the future.

What made you decide to expand SmartSimple into New York City? 

With an increasing number of customers in the United States, it's most appropriate that we establish an office in the financial and cultural capital of the country. It was also important that our new office have local staff with a full understanding of the environment.

How does our New York office fit into SmartSimple’s strategy for success and growth in 2013? 

Becoming a small global company has always been a goal of ours, and with the addition of a U.S. office we're that much closer to achieving it. With today’s technology, it’s possible for smaller companies su…

SmartSimple in New York City - An Interview Series

Did you hear? SmartSimple is officially live in New York City!

To celebrate the opening of our first American office, we’ve conducted a few interviews with SmartSimple staff to gather their thoughts about our new move.

For our first installment, we spoke with SmartSimple's Resource Coordinator, Sarah Harris, about the decisions that went into selecting our new location, as well as her favourite spots around the neighbourhood.
Our new office is located in New York City’s Chelsea district – what made this location desirable? 

We scouted with the intent to be in Midtown, originally, so I scheduled Chelsea for a comparison of neighborhoods. I was immediately drawn to the (business) casual atmosphere in the executive parts of the area, as well as the hip artsy contemporary nature of Chelsea. Being the “tech hub of Manhattan”, it seemed to fit perfectly with our corporate identity.

It’s close to Penn Station, making it easy to get to and from airports. Our location is squared by subway …
