60 State Street, the 13th tallest skyscraper in Boston, is Nanigans’ third office in Boston. Founded in early 2010 out of a co-working space in downtown Boston, we grew desk-by-desk and quickly engulfed nearly the entire space. Nanigans’ second space on 141 Tremont Street overlooking the Boston Common seemed massive when we first moved into it in early 2011. But in the last several months of bringing our headcount up to 75 people, the space was quite literally constraining our growth (case in point: our CEO’s office morphed into a room full of PhDs and data scientists!). To say the least, we’re thrilled to be in a home 2.5 times the size of our last office, and with an option to expand into even more space.
All those ads you see in the right-hand column on Facebook are contributing to the growth of a Boston company: Nanigans, which offers a web-based service that helps advertisers get the most value from the money they spend on the social network. And next week, the startup is moving into new space at 60 State Street that will enable it to grow from 75 employees at present to almost 200.
Aside from more space, tons of inviting conference rooms, a foosball table, multiple commercial sized refrigerators, a massive family-style kitchen table, and cool industrial features like exposed concrete, cork board floors and metal sliding doors, we have nearly 360 degree views of Boston and its Harbor. With floor to ceiling windows, this makes for some serious ad optimization inspiration! Here’s a peak at the views, even on this rainy day in Boston:
Old State House: The oldest surviving public building in Boston and now a museum, the Old State House is most famous for being the site of the Boston Massacre and also housed the city’s first merchant exchange.
Boston Stock Exchange: The third oldest stock exchange in America, this regional stock exchange was acquired by NASDAQ in 2007. The old building merges with a modern one, Exchange Place, and we’re lucky to be right at the crux of where old and new meet.
Faneuil Hall & Quincy Market: Built as a gift to Boston by its wealthiest merchant in 1742, Faneuil Hall is where colonists first protested the Sugar Act, established the doctrine of “no taxation without representation,” and where George Washington toasted America on its first birthday. Quincy Market was built years later to support Boston’s expanding commercial footprint.
All of the rich history, progress and commercial feats accomplished near our new office is certainly a fitting backdrop for continued innovation around enabling the world’s top advertisers to reach their most valuable customers.
