Another large West Coast-based technology company, which already counts a number of iconic Atlanta establishments as customers, has chosen Atlanta for their East Coast headquarters. Revel Systems, one of the largest iPad-based point of sale (POS) and business management platforms for restaurants and retailers, intends to hire more than 170 Atlanta-based employees over the next few years.
Those employees will include a large team of software developers and engineers, as well as an Atlanta-based sales team. The regional office, which will be located in the Bank of America Plaza in Midtown, will be led by Revel Systems’ CTO, Erick Kobres.
“As we continue to grow, we wanted to find a new location that best accommodates our burgeoning team and plays host to our expanding slate of customers. Bank of America Plaza offers the perfect setting with high-end restaurants nearby and easy access to Midtown’s mass transit,” says Kobres.
“This is an incredibly positive move for us. Our state-of-the-art software engineering center will not only support innovation initiatives but also open up new opportunities for the Atlanta workforce.”
Revel was founded in 2010 and has its headquarters in San Francisco, with additional offices in London, Australia, Lithuania and Singapore. The company’s products help streamline both front and back end operations with customers and employees.
Their POS system can serve restaurants ranging from fine dining to fast casual to convenience stores, with clients such as fueling station Shell, Smoothie King, Little Caesars Pizza, Illy Coffee, Dairy Queen, and more.
Some of their local clients include food giant Focus Brands (the umbrella company of Auntie Anne’s, Cinnabon and more), Holler & Dash, Kale Me Crazy and Burger 21.
Current open roles in Atlanta include product designer, software developer, and marketing manager.
To access talent, Revel has partnered with Georgia Tech through the College of Computing’s Corporate Affiliates Program. The program allows companies to engage with students by funneling them into internship and work-study positions, conduct research projects together, get direct access to graduates, and more.
“This partnership creates substantial opportunities for our students to network, intern, and ultimately pursue career opportunities with Revel. We look forward to working with them and watching their ranks grow with our talented Georgia Tech graduates,” said Cedric Stallworth, College of Computing Assistant Dean for Outreach, Enrollment and Community, in a statement.
