Ed-tech solution provider Lightspeed Systems has announced plans to relocate employees and operations from Bakersfield, California, to Austin, Texas. Lightspeed Systems’ new location was chosen by the company’s executive team to position the company closer to customers, partners, and other key technology companies. Additionally, concentrating employees in the Central Time Zone will allow the company to better support customers in and out of the country, and work with more agility and speed. The majority of the company’s 80 Bakersfield employees will be transitioned to the Austin offices this year, while some employees will remain in Bakersfield, working remotely.
