Phoenix recently welcomed Minneapolis-based The Nerdery to its tech scene. It is the company’s fourth major market since its founding in 2003. The company with the tongue-in-cheek name has earned numerous recognitions in the ensuing years, including making Inc. Magazine’s list of fastest growing private companies for seven straight years.
“We took a long look at several cities and decided Phoenix was our best opportunity for establishing our next branch,” said Phoenix Managing Director Mike Johnson, noting the area’s strong entrepreneurial environment and promising assortment of business and technical recruiting possibilities.
The growing Phoenix team will complement the company’s other 500-plus employees it describes as “Web developers, UX designers, QA engineers and other Nerds” who partner with clients on custom interactive projects including websites, mobile and social-media app development. Says Johnson, “The talent is here, and, with a high density of students and Millennials, we see only upside in moving here, and moving fast.”
