AVA Labs Newsletter #2
AVA Labs Monthly Newsletter — June 2019
We wanted to provide some updates, including activities and milestones spanning the month of June 2019. June was an intense month for us, and we are excited to share just a few tidbits of news.
1. We opened an office in New York
We opened our official headquarters in NYC. This will be our second expansion out of our current offices at Cornell University and San Francisco, and our first major relocation (to be opened on July 15th). This is an important milestone as it will fast-track our expansion and partnerships for the rest of the year.
2. Come work with us
We continued expanding the team, and upgraded recruiting on all fronts. We are looking for talented engineers, product managers, business development managers, sales people, UI/UX design, and many others. Positions available both in New York and San Francisco!
