Austin will gain yet another new employer as MapMyFitness has announced they will be moving their headquarters from Denver. MapMyFitness is an interactive website that allows its users to track their favorite hiking, biking, running, and cycling routes. They also offer mobile applications for iPhone and Blackberry users.
MapMyFitness was awarded $5 million from Austin Ventures, one of the leading venture capital firms in the region, which helped pave the way for their relocation. Currently they have 27 employees in Denver, most of whom will remain there. But plans for the Austin headquarters will include hiring new employees, specifically for mobile software development, marketing, and sales.
We are so very fortunate to be living in a city that attracts and lands new businesses regularly. Our economy, climate, activities, and community spirit are all extremely attractive and we realize how lucky we are to live in Austin. Mission Mortgage welcomes MapMyFitness and wishes them much success in their future endeavors.
