DUSSELDORF, Germany, Feb. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — trivago‘s current headquarters in Dusseldorf, Germany are getting a bit tight. With 222% growth since 2012, the multinational team of 950 needs room to grow, which is why trivago has commissioned a new state-of-the-art campus it plans to relocate to in 2018.
"We thought about moving people into the basement, but decided that building a campus might be a slightly better idea," says Founder and Managing Director, Rolf Schrömgens.
With less than $1M as an initial investment, trivago has organically grown over the past nine years to nearly $500M (2015) turnover and more than $4B (2015) in market place revenue. Still growing by more than 58% YoY, the team sees moving into a new campus not only as a necessity, but as just the beginning.
The curved, six-story high-rise, (accommodates 2,000) has been designed by SOP Architekten – and will offer 26,000 m² (280,000 ft2) of open, accessible space – with room to expand by an additional 1,500, to a 16-story building next door.
As with the current headquarters, the new campus will include creatively-themed rooms and kitchens, and continue to offer trivago sponsored activities – from Bouldering to Krav Maga and Aerial Yoga. The health-conscious working atmosphere will also remain, with organic fruit and healthy lunches still being offered at no cost to employees, as well as ergonomic chairs, standing desks and access to fitness facilities and daily classes. Additionally, the team will have access to local parks, a green rooftop as well as expansive dining areas.
"Our goal is to attract the best talent from all over the world. With 63 nationalities all sitting in one office, making sure everyone feels comfortable is really important," says Sydney Burdick, trivago Global Corporate Communication.
