OwnBackup, a leading cloud-to-cloud backup/recovery vendor and one of New Jersey’s fastest growing tech companies, is excited to announce the opening of its new headquarters in Englewood Cliffs, N.J. The company’s new headquarters is equipped for 160 employees, reflecting OwnBackup's recent rapid pace of growth in the Garden State.
OwnBackup, which has secured nearly $50 million in funding — including a $23.25 million Series C raise earlier this year — has doubled its staff size every year since 2016. The company’s recent expansion has made it the second fastest growing tech company in all of New Jersey, as part of Inc’s fastest-growing private companies list. In the coming months, the company will be hiring regional talent for various roles, including sales, marketing, customer support, product, technical support and administration.
“Bergen County is excited to welcome OwnBackup and its growing base of employees to Englewood Cliffs," said Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco. “Bergen County is one of the best places to live, raise a family and work, thanks to our highly skilled workforce, excellent schools and parks, and diverse downtowns. Our strong county economic development team helps businesses like OwnBackup thrive, because we believe in investing in each other, our workforce and our shared future."
In recent years, OwnBackup has emerged as the leading cloud data protection platform for the increasing number of businesses utilizing Salesforce for their customer-relationship management (CRM) services or other enterprise applications. Through its integration with Salesforce, OwnBackup helps more than 1,400 businesses worldwide protect critical cloud data — securing trillions of Software as a Service (SaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) records to prevent data corruption/data loss, ensure business continuity, minimize operational disruptions and meet compliance mandates.
“The opening of our new Englewood Cliffs headquarters marks a milestone in what has been an incredibly exciting period of expansion for OwnBackup, as global demand continues to increase for reliable cloud data protection,” said CEO Sam Gutmann. “It was especially important to us that we harness this growth here in Bergen County, which provides proximity to Manhattan while allowing us to tap into an abundance of highly skilled tech talent in the surrounding region.”
OwnBackup's new headquarters signals a notable victory in New Jersey’s collective efforts to attract, retain and nurture technology companies. Recently, the New Jersey Economic Development Authority launched programs designed to encourage venture capital investment in high-tech, Jersey-based companies and to provide rent assistance to early-stage startups.
"I am delighted to welcome OwnBackup to Englewood Cliffs. Businesses like Own are the backbone of America and they drive our technology based economy forward,” said Englewood Cliffs Mayor Mario M. Kranjac. “Englewood Cliffs has emerged as a place where start-ups, development stage companies and Fortune 500 companies can thrive, grow and prosper. Their employees can live comfortably here, raise their families, run, cycle, walk, hike and kayak all in view of New York City."
Own’s new 30,000-square-foot headquarters is designed with a collaborative open-office layout centered around a full auditorium for community events, including Salesforce User Groups. Elsewhere, the offices ample employee perks including: a gaming room with arcade and console games, spa-style lounge with massage chairs, ‘pub’ area with fully stocked beer taps, and full kitchen. The company also provides a free shuttle to-and-from Manhattan, offering a short 20-minute ride for New York City commuters.
