Fasten’s Growth Drives Move into New Corporate Headquarters in Boston
Third largest, and Only Profitable, Ride-Hailing Company in U.S. Continues to Innovate Category
BOSTON (December 5, 2017) Fasten announced today it has moved into a new corporate headquarters in downtown Boston, located on the 8th floor of Two Financial Center at 60 South Street. Fasten’s torrid growth in the past year necessitated the move to larger, more permanent office space, which is conveniently located around the corner from the Fasten’s 1,700 square foot driver lounge at 123 Beach Street. Fasten was the first in the ride-hailing industry to offer a space for drivers, which they can visit for in-person customer service, a refreshment – or even a quick game of ping pong with a Fasten team member.
“After spending so much time building Fasten from inside coworking spaces, home offices, and airport lounges, we are excited to have a place we can call home,” said Kirill Evdakov, co-founder and CEO of Fasten. “This new space will allow us to keep up with growth and maintain our focus on building a ‘people first’ ride-hailing service that prioritizes both driver opportunity and rider satisfaction.”
The 3,800 square foot space – with a layout conceived by Fasten’s in-house design team – focuses on simplicity, and features a clean, streamlined aesthetic. With Herman Miller furniture including modern, sit-to-stand desks, the offices feature white and purple walls with accents of Fasten’s signature green. The offices boast an open concept floor plan with a large conference room, and several smaller meeting rooms for Fasten’s 30 Boston-based employees.
The move comes as Fasten continues to expand its presence in key markets by introducing a range of new benefits for its drivers and passengers. The company announced a new driver lounge in Austin, Texas, as well as expanded support staff in both Austin and Boston. This summer Fasten also launched Fasten Karma, the nation’s first rewards program among ride-hailing apps which offers all riders automatic discounts after every 10th trip they make.
