ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Deputy, an award-winning workforce management software platform, today announced the move of its North American Headquarters to the Buckhead district of Atlanta, GA. The new office location in the WeWork Tower Place sets Deputy in the heart of the city's cutting-edge tech industry.
“Deputy has always had a desire to be located at the center of innovation, as evidenced by our global headquarters in Sydney, Australia,” reflected Ashik Ahmed, CEO, CTO and Co-Founder of Deputy. “We believe there is no better spot in North America than Atlanta to be a SaaS startup right now. We look forward to being a part of the community, and growing with the great city of Atlanta while bringing countless jobs in the near future.”
