Avalara departing Bainbridge by 2016

logo-tagline-extend-FF6600-@2xUpdate: Here’s my story on Avalara’s relocation plans.

Fast-growing tax software firm Avalara will migrate its headquarters from Bainbridge Island to Seattle by early 2016, according to a Tuesday afternoon post on the company’s Facebook page:

Avalara’s next move: exciting yet bittersweet

We are proud to have bucked the odds for 11 years and built a world-class business on Bainbridge Island, which is a huge tribute to our exceptional Kitsap employees and supportive community.

That said, over the past few years it’s become clear that to sustain our growth and our close-knit culture we would need far larger facilities than are available on the island, not to mention better access to the deeper workforce in the Puget Sound region.

Since we are committed to keeping our entire Seattle area team in close proximity every day, today we are sharing our plans to continue expanding our current Seattle location and move our remaining BI workforce and headquarters there between this fall and the first part of 2016.

We are excited to bring our various Seattle area teams closer together and are grateful for the support Bainbridge provided in making this possible.

  1. Glad BI wastes their most precious acres on cheap surface parking instead of, oh I don’t know, office space. Or housing. Or both.
