December 26, 2017

The year of 2017 proved to be one of unequaled success for the Southern California startup community, with local companies collectively raising nearly $7 billion. To match that momentum, companies throughout the area have stepped up their interior design game as well, and Built In LA had the opportunity to check out some truly spectacular tech offices. Here were our favorites.

Valencia's own Scorpion has only been in its new palatial headquarters for a few months, but with Six Flag Magic Mountain right around the corner, an in-office sports court and awesome interiors throughout, we have a feeling the team adjusted to their new digs quickly.

Move in date: October 2017

Square footage: 100,000-square-feet

Awesome amenities on-site: A restaurant-style cafeteria, full-service coffee shop, indoor sports court, employee game lounge, a video wall in the lobby, height-adjustable workstations and more.

 

 

Located off the 105 freeway right off of Sepulveda Boulevard, digital marketing agency ConsumerTrack is right in the heart of El Segundo's ever-growing tech community.

The recent successes achieved by DTLA-based JOANY are impossible to ignore. Hot on the heels of a big-time Series A and a successful rebrand, the company just moved into an office in the heart of downtown LA.

Former West Hollywood resident Evite kicked off 2017 with a move to the company's new DTLA headquarters on Wilshire, but the company hasn't quite shed its Sunset Boulevard roots — all of the conference rooms are named after famous LA music venues, including WeHo's The Roxy and The Troubadour.
