Starting just five years ago, Gearset has grown to become the most widely used DevOps solution for Salesforce with thousands of customers all around the world. It’s been an exciting journey, and we’re just getting going.
Up to this point, we’ve been based almost entirely in Cambridge, UK. Now, we’re heading stateside and opening our US head office in Chicago 🇺🇸
Supporting growth in the US
70% of our customer base is in the US, so we’re setting up shop in Chicago both to support growth and to make sure we keep delivering for our users. Simon Bishop will be returning to Chicago to head up and expand Gearset’s US team, drawing on his decade of experience in the Salesforce ecosystem.
“I’m excited to be part of this important milestone for Gearset! With such strong growth in the US, having a local team makes good sense and is a real opportunity to work closely with our US customers as an in-region team, building on our outstanding customer support. Culture is very important to Gearset, so I’m looking forward to extending our UK culture and community as the building blocks of our new team.”
From Cambridge to Chicago
While we plan to hire across the US, we’ve decided to locate our US head office in Chicago. Looking across the pond, we were drawn to Chicago’s tech scene - a leading innovation hub with a huge amount of local talent. With Salesforce tower Chicago midway through construction, Salesforce is also expanding its Chicago presence.
