ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Viewpost, the secure B2B network for exchanging invoices and payments, today announced the opening of a San Francisco office to support additional product management and user experience roles for its growing technology company.
Viewpost set up shop at 180 Sansome Street in the tech campus of RocketSpace, where notable alumni include Spotify, Uber, and Zappos. The new office in San Francisco’s Financial District becomes home base for Viewpost Chief Technology Officer, Philippe Stephan, who joined the Orlando-based startup in 2015 from Risk Management Solutions (RMS) in Silicon Valley, where he served as CTO and Head of Product Development. While at RMS, Stephan led a large team of technologists in producing a software suite for risk quantification, pricing and portfolio management in the global insurance industry.
“This is an exciting time for Viewpost,” said Max Eliscu, founder and Chief Executive Officer. “Our Orlando office is bustling with talent and energy focused on making invoice, payment and cash flow management frictionless for businesses of all sizes, from freelancers to large enterprises. Adding Philippe Stephan to our leadership ranks, and now a San Francisco office, demonstrates our commitment to building a world-class organization.”
“Our goal is to provide an ecosystem that anticipates the unique needs of high-growth tech companies like Viewpost,” said Duncan Logan, founder and CEO of RocketSpace. “When you join RocketSpace, you become a part of a curated community of entrepreneurs all focused on building game-changing technologies.”
Joining Stephan in the San Francisco office will be 11 Product Management and UX Designers who complement the product development team in Orlando and add to the 133-strong Viewpost workforce, including teams in Boston and Minneapolis.
“I was immediately drawn to the comprehensive and inventive solution Viewpost is building for the business-to-business marketplace,” said Stephan of Viewpost. “I’m eager to put my 20 years of cloud-based finance experience to work on the strategy, design and development of a product that brings unprecedented data visibility to businesses of all sizes. The challenge, and the work, are inspiring.”
Viewpost recently launched a new iOS App called Viewpost Invoice, created specifically for business owners who need a simple and quick way to create and send electronic invoices on the go while also tracking the status of invoices and payments like they would a package shipment.
