The 150-employee office, which is hiring now, will go to full scale within two years. Houzz is bringing jobs with an average wage higher than the county average.

“Arizona has become the ideal location for technology companies looking to scale their operations, and the decision by Houzz to expand into Tempe further emphasizes that,” said Governor Dough Ducey in a statement.

Workforce and the cluster of technology companies along the lake in Tempe were cited by the company as reasons for picking the location.

The company’s platform connects homeowners with home improvement professionals. Houzz officials said in 2015 it drove $3.2 billion in gross revenue to its clients through the connection service. The Houzz application was created as a founders’ side project to help with a personal home remodeling project. The company said now has more than 40 million unique users.

Sandra Watson, president and CEO of Arizona Commerce Authority has informed us that it has an office in Silicon Valley and aggressively helps growing tech companies select Arizona office locations to go to scale in a more stable and cost-effective business environment.

Houzz is the seventh California company as of late to expand by opening an Arizona office as opposed to adding to its existing offices. 

Earlier last year, California was toying with the idea of implementing a tech tax which has resulted in various California companies to seek expansion into other territories. Arizona has become a popular place for many of these organizations to expand for various factors. Apple, GoDaddy, and now HOUZZ are just signs of the future of our Valley and what is to come.
