Built in Brews at the New Chicago PowerReviews Office

Reading Time: 1 minutes

PowerReviews is growing rapidly. In just 12 short months, we’ve increased headcount by 200%. In fact, we’ve recently moved both our San Francisco and Chicago offices to accommodate growth, enable better collaboration, and provide our employees with a positive, energized, and all-around great work environment.

Earlier this month, tech professionals throughout the city had the opportunity to check out our brand new office space and see what life is like at PowerReviews when we hosted Built In Chicago’s Built In Brews, a monthly happy hour hosted by a different, high growth tech company in Chicago.

Built In Brews was a sold out event with more than 270 attendees, including a special guest, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. The mayor spoke to attendees about the growing tech scene in Chicago, and how graduates from around the country are choosing to move to Chicago because it’s a great place for folks to launch (and grow) their careers.

Matt Moog, CEO of PowerReviews and founder of Built In Chicago, also talked about the growth of PowerReviews and how Chicago has been an ideal, vibrant environment to foster this growth.

The theme of the event was “Star Wars: Ratings & Reviews,” tying together our fun culture with our fantastic software. As you can see, some folks took the theme pretty seriously.

    Built -In Brews at PowerReviews was a fun evening! It was great to hear both the Mayor and Matt Moog talk about how vibrant Chicago was and how its blazing a trail in the start up world. I was pleasantly surprised by the large turnout; the evening definitely reflected PowerReviews’ affinity for fun and light-heartedness. I was definitely impressed with the office and by how nice the employees were. I was chatting with an employee in the wine line and when he heard about my background, he quickly introduced me to the hiring manager in that group. I was blown away by his sincerity and willingness to connect a total stranger. I was glad to be a part of the evening.
