Since we opened our San Francisco headquarters in 2009, PagerDuty has experienced tremendous growth, with offices in Toronto, Seattle, London, and Sydney. Our global footprint enabled us to meet the needs of our customers and provided access to diverse talent all over the world. Today, we’re thrilled to announce that we will be opening an office in Atlanta, GA, in February 2019, with the aim of hiring up to 100 people for the new office by the end of 2019.
At PagerDuty, we know from experience that a diverse workplace filled with talented people leads to a happier, healthier environment. Our Atlanta office gives us the opportunity as a company to extend our inclusive culture in one of the biggest cultural melting pots in the Lower 48, and we expect this office to become an important cross-functional hub with more than 300 employees in the near future.

Putting our people first is important to us, and after analyzing a number of different U.S. cities, we selected Atlanta because of its diverse talent pool and city initiatives that align with our cultural values. Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms announced in May 2018 the establishment of the first-ever Mayor’s Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion—known as One Atlanta—which leverages the combined power of government, private and nonprofit partners, and communities to dismantle systemic inequities and barriers to opportunity.

PagerDuty also understands the importance of selecting a location that is attractive and affordable for employees. Atlanta is widely regarded as a top city for tech talent; therefore, competitive advantages such as cost of living and access to this talent weighed into our overall decision. We already have a business presence in the region, and we’re excited to expand our customer base with new enterprise opportunities.
Additionally, Georgia Tech, located just nine miles from downtown Atlanta, produces more underrepresented minority degree holders and graduates more female software engineers than any other university in North America. This diverse talent pool is further complemented by other nearby universities, including Georgia State, Emory, Morehouse, and Spelman.
Some fun facts: Mirroring the cultural diversity of the city, Atlanta’s musical roots run deep into a variety of genres, including rap, blues, classical, and country, gracing us with renowned artists like Gladys Knight, Outkast, John Mayer, and Kenny Rogers. The food scene also showcases the region’s diversity, with southern-based and fusion cuisines from almost every ethnic background.
