An online educational training company has expanded its headquarters in Tampa’s Westshore business district and is hiring for seven full-time positions locally.
, a division of the larger organization Vector, has provided online training space for engineering, construction, industrial and public businesses since 1999. The Tampa-based business was developed and sold by David Chitester, whose Florida Funders
group of angel investors is gaining traction locally -- most recently, by partnering with Uber on a 'ride-and-pitch' event
that put potential entrepreneurs alongside angel investors and venture capitalists for 15-minute spins around town.
RedVector, which employs more than 80 workers in the Tampa Bay area, has recently moved from the 7th
floor to the 3rd
floor of the Urban Centre II building at 4890 West Kennedy Blvd., expanding its national headquarters in the city’s Westshore business district.
“We take a lot of pride in RedVector’s close-knit culture, but we were pretty squeezed for space at our old location,” explains RedVector CEO Tom Wallace.
The company’s vision for the new, 18,000-square-feet offices was "to create a larger, free-flowing environment, without taking away from that unified culture that we love so much,” Wallace says.
Aspects of the new RedVector offices include a large break room and coffee station, six conference rooms named for the company’s core values (Entrepreneurship, Learning, Integrity, Teamwork, Excellence, WOW), healthy snacks, and even a production studio.
One unique feature of the new space: a private ‘mother’s room.’
A number of full-time positions with RedVector in Tampa are currently available, including:
- Accounts Payable Specialist
- B2B Sales Representative
- Business Development Representative
- CRM Analyst
- Inside Sales Representative - Education Advisors
- Sales Representative - B2B Industrial
- VP of Enterprise Sale
Wallace hopes to see the new headquarters, designed with "more modern features, like low cube walls and glass partitions, foster even greater collaboration and creativity and attract new talent.”
Wallace, who serves on the Board of Directors of well-known local companies like Tribridge
, is also a co-founder and past president of the Tampa Bay Technology Forum (TBTF
). Wallace attended Indiana University of PA
, and presently serves on TBTF's Board of Directors and Executive Committee. He is also a trustee of the University of Tampa
