GoDaddy Hosting Open House at New Office in Cambridge

GoDaddy Boston OfficeIn the last year, GoDaddy has made three Boston-area acquisitions. The company acquired Waltham-based Afternic, Cambridge-based Locu, and Cambridge-based Canary. Because these three companies were based in the Boston area and are primarily staffed by locally-based employees, GoDaddy recently opened an office in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

According to Boston Business Journal, the recently opened office is 9,600 square feet. The office is home to approximately 35 employees, and the company is looking to hire (according to the BBJ article). At the present time, there is only one job opening in Cambridge listed on the GoDaddy job board, but I imagine that number will grow. I visited the office a couple of weeks ago, and it has great views of the Charles River and the city of Boston.

To help celebrate the opening of this new office, GoDaddy will be hosting a public open house. The event will take place on Wednesday, July 30 from 5:30pm to 8:00pm at its new offices located at One Main Street (Suite 1120) in Kendall Square in Cambridge.

Although the event is open to the public, you need to register to attend the open house on the EventBrite page. Food and beverages will be served.

If you are located in the Boston area and you work with Afternic or GoDaddy, you might want to check it out. It might be a good opportunity to meet with Afternic reps to discuss business with them.

  1. Lunch it is. Headed to Red Sox game Tuesday night (when in Boston…)

    I’ll move details over email lest this blog start to resemble twitter #PaulandElliotPlanLunch

  2. Godaddy is one of those companies who I believe is too big to care about it’s customers, hopefully opening offices like these will help change that by focusing on customer service… Not one of my top registrars by any means, but they serve our industry well and provide a wealth of opportunities for domainers, I will continue to use them as any business person should, Domaining is a business, not a social event. if they make you feel unappreciated, tell it to Dr. Phil.
