AUSTIN, Texas—Opportunity Austin, the Greater Austin Chamber's five-county economic development initiative, announced Austin-based ESO, a software and data company, has more than doubled its office space and continues to add jobs.

“The innovative approach by ESO to improve community health and safety through the power of data is reflective of our community culture and corporate environment," said Opportunity Austin Senior Vice President of Economic Development Charisse Bodisch. "Their new office in the Domain provides a modern and innovative space to continue to grow and double their employee base creating new opportunities for Central Texans who will have impact in our community. Congratulations to their leadership and team on this exciting news.”

ESO more than doubled its space by relocating from a 20,000-square-foot facility in the Arboretum area to a 52,000-square-foot modern office space in The Domain in the former Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts space. The new space is designed with multiple work-space concepts in mind, from two-person rooms for one-on-one or private calls, to conference rooms, and an all-hands area with bench seating for more than 150. Additionally, a state-of-the-art, centrally located break room encourages socialization across all departments, leading to a vibrant and dynamic team culture.

“Austin has a strong entrepreneurial spirit and we’re proud to be a part of it,” said Chris Dillie, President and CEO of ESO. “From humble beginnings 14 years ago at an Austin Java to our new office in The Domain, we’ve grown into a software and data company serving and supporting thousands of EMS agencies, fire departments and hospitals around the country doing vital work to help keep our communities healthy and safe. And none of this would have been possible without the hard work and dedication from the outstanding team we’ve built at ESO over the years. The best part is, we’re just getting started.”

The company continues to grow and add employees at a healthy rate. ESO currently employs more than 210 nationwide, with 130 of those employees in the Austin office and room to add another 130 to 140.
