Fast-growing fintech company Fast announces Tampa for East Coast office
August 3, 2021
Fast, a rapidly growing fintech company headquartered in San Francisco, announced today it’s opening a Tampa office, which will serve as the company’s East Coast hub. During a high-energy event at Tampa’s Sparkman Wharf, Domm Holland, Fast’s co-founder and CEO, also announced he is relocating to Tampa.
Fast has grown from just two co-founders at the start of 2020 to more than 200 people today and plans to double those numbers by the end of 2021, and the company is hoping to fill as many of those roles in Tampa as possible.
Tampa’s thriving and expanding tech community is ranked as Florida’s top tech market. Tampa is quickly becoming an attractive destination for tech businesses and tech talent in the U.S. Over the past few months alone, companies like OPSWAT, TrustLayer, Celsius Network, and International Data Corp. have announced their relocations or expansions to Tampa.
Not only are companies finding the highly-skilled talent they need here, but recruiting talent is a breeze. Recent reports from both CBRE and LinkedIn rank Tampa in the top 10 for tech talent growth and tech worker relocation. Fast expects to turbocharge this growth with its presence in Tampa.
