Today we’re happy to announce, together with Wake County Economic Development (WCED) and the City of Raleigh Office of Economic, the establishment of WalkMe Raleigh, our regional headquarters in Raleigh, with plans to create hundreds of jobs in Wake County over the next few years. First was San Francisco, then New York City, and we have now set roots in downtown Raleigh, which hosts 500+ startups, with of some of the biggest players in the software industry.
We chose to establish our regional headquarters in Raleigh because we identified Wake County as a leading tech hub in the Southeast, with a high number of skilled people who can join WalkMe’s success.
WalkMe Raleigh will also serve as the Global Center of Excellence and Support for the recently launched WalkMe Apps – a new and free way for App Developers to create better mobile software, faster. WalkMe Apps is a brand new solution solving some of the toughest challenges that independent mobile app developers face.
