Posted on 10/14/2021

AUSTIN, Texas—Opportunity Austin, the Greater Austin Chamber’s five-county prosperity initiative, today announced the expansion of AI company Moveworks into the Austin region.

Moveworks, headquartered in Mountain View, California, offers companies an AI platform that automatically resolves employees’ requests, such as IT issues and HR questions. The new Austin office is one of several that Moveworks is currently adding around the world. This location will be critical for the company, as it will support all employees and customers in the South while serving as a home base for the region.

“We’re excited that the rapidly expanding Moveworks chose Austin for its newest facility,” Charisse Bodisch, Austin Chamber senior vice president, economic development, said. “Moveworks is a company that prioritizes the well-being and support of its employees, and there is no better place to find a live/work culture with ample career opportunities and a high quality of life than right here in the Austin region.”

Moveworks, one of the fastest-growing AI companies in the world, has doubled the size of its team in the last year to more than 300 full-time employees. The new Austin office is located in the Barton Springs area, and already has more than 20 employees. Moveworks is looking to expand that number to 40-plus by the end of 2021.

“Austin is home to one of the most elite talent ecosystems in the tech industry,” Bhavin Shah, Moveworks CEO, said. “But the new office also allows us to support our many customers in the South — as they, in turn, support their employees using our platform. We're incredibly excited to invest in the development of our Austin team because, with their leadership, we'll bring instant help to every employee on earth.”
