GoDaddy Global Technology Center
Innovating for customers begins with employees. According to GoDaddy — a company who aims to empower individuals to run their own business — the creativity that fuels its clients also powers its staff. That’s why the old offices of the tech pioneer were no longer sufficient. Cubicles and bland colors stifled their brand and stunted their creative process, engulfing staffers with an air of mediocrity. Like much of the tech world, GoDaddy’s team works long hours. Employees would have to either be hard at work at their desks, or taking a break in the kitchen, or outside of the building.
“We want it to be distracting,” was the feedback we received. “We’re here a long time. We work long hours. We like to come out and blow off steam; have a little friendly competition.”
Friendly competition, we would provide. The new space would contain a fitness area, yoga room, game center, indoor climbing wall, go-kart tracking, outdoor basketball, volleyball courts and a soccer field. If that wasn’t enough, the design also included a full-service kitchen and a giant slide that bridged the first and second floors.
