The Waltham-based online payments technology company BlueSnap has expanded its headquarters in order to accommodate growth.
The company announced held a ribbon-cutting ceremony earlier this week to mark the opening of an additional 12,000 square feet of office space.
With the new space, BlueSnap has expanded its staff, raising the global headcount to approximately 165 employees worldwide. There are currently 65 BlueSnap employees in Waltham, and the company plans to add another 40 by the end of the next year.
“BlueSnap has seen rapid growth over the last year and significantly expanding our corporate headquarters has been an essential step to support this progression,” Ralph Dangelmaier, CEO of BlueSnap, said in a statement. “We are excited to come together today with other notable Boston area business leaders to not only showcase our own growth but how the Fintech market as a whole is thriving in the Bay State.”
The new space includes a number of features to enhance the BlueSnap work environment including huddle spaces to foster collaboration and standing desks to encourage mobility. Larger spaces will help support all-employee gatherings with an improved open meeting area and encourage networking by providing more opportunities to recharge during breaks in a large, communal lunch room.
The expansion will continue to support growth of the all-in-one payment platform, which enables both B2B and B2C businesses to increase sales and reduce costs.
