It’s official – we’re back in the Bay

morgan-linton-san-francisco

As many of you know, I was born and raised in the Bay Area – Berkeley to be specific. I love the Bay but after High School I was ready for something different, which is why heading to the East Coast for college was definitely the right move. I really enjoyed my time at CMU, sure Pittsburgh wasn’t the warmest place, but I learned that I actually enjoy snow in a lot of ways…just maybe not for the rest of my life.

After Pittsburgh I moved to LA, then to Boston (yes back to the snow but Sonos was an amazing adventure and well worth the move) and then to LA. It was in LA that we started Bold Metrics and I still can’t believe we just crossed over the five-year mark. Yes – I have grey beard hairs to prove it!

Today is an exciting day because this morning we picked up our keys to a new apartment in San Francisco. We are opening up a new office here and adding two more people to the team (see job listings here) immediately to kick things off.

The view above is from our new roof deck. I’m still pinching myself. It feels great to be back in the Bay, great to be growing our company and hiring new team members here, and honestly, more than anything – it’s exciting to see our technology live with some of the biggest retailers on the planet…and some exciting new ones to come!

Okay, well it’s 10:07PM and honestly since we moved in we’ve been working non-stop and running around SF interviewing candidates. So it’s time for a glass of wine and one of our favorite shows – Frasier. If any of my readers come to SF, let me know, the first coffee/beer (but not the combination of the two – that sounds gross) is on me!

    Sounds a very nice place as I have BayAreaResort.com which must be a generic Geo name and now for sale at Sedo!

    Bold Metrics is something I long thought needed in ecommerce, especially fashion and apparel one.
    Looks great.
    What’s the best way to get in touch with you?

    Great city you will live and work, I liked it very much the only time that I was many years ago has changed a lot at that time I have commented friends with whom we share the trip.

    That everything goes to you best and luck that you can change of state.

    In Spain it is very different Catalonia where I am born and still living is news all over the world. You can never leave a citizenship for different ideas in the same city as Barcelona in the end the borders by neighborhoods would be inside this city and never with France the border country to Catalonia.

    I love the music of my times to buy a Vinyl Single that the lyrics is by the composer of The Mamas & The Papas but who to sing it was Scott McKenzie those years were those that I live in the title to take the name of this great city that now Morgan is with all of you.
    I still have this well preserved single stored in my house.
