Fast-growing solutions provider occupies custom, 3-level building Downtown
SAN JOSE, Calif. – Wrike, the collaborative work management platform for high performance teams, will celebrate the opening of its headquarters in a newly refurbished building in Downtown San Jose. The ceremonial ribbon-cutting will take place at 10:30 am, Wednesday, April 18. San José Mayor Sam Liccardo and City Councilmembers Raul Peralez and Johnny Khamis will be featured speakers, in addition to Wrike Founder and CEO, Andrew Filev.
Located at 70 North Second Street, the 23,000+ square foot building is one of Lift Partners’
repositioning projects, with the interior of an existing building entirely redesigned and
repurposed for Wrike.
“It is fitting that a company focused on helping businesses work more collaboratively and
efficiently has decided to locate its headquarters in the Capitol of Silicon Valley,” said Mayor
Sam Liccardo. “I thank Wrike for its investment in San José and look forward to seeing its
employees enjoying our growing and vibrant downtown.”
Founded in 2006, Wrike is a collaborative work management solutions provider that helps more than 15,000 businesses worldwide plan, manage and complete work more efficiently. Wrike is one of the fastest-growing companies in the North America, being named to the Deloitte Fast 500 list for three consecutive years. The offices on North 2nd Street will serve as Wrike’s global headquarters, supporting growth of its operations, sales, marketing and customer success teams.
“It’s been an amazing journey,” says Wrike CEO Filev. “Just five years ago, we were in a singleroom office with 12 employees, working tirelessly to build the best solution in a fast-growing space. We’re now a leader in collaborative work management with 600 employees globally and not slowing down. We’re excited to plant our flag in Downtown San Jose in this beautifully restored building and be part of the revitalization of this historic neighborhood.”
VTA Light Rail has a stop right outside Wrike’s new front door on North 2nd Street, which is just down the road from Diridon Station’s Caltrain and Amtrak lines, giving the company access to the whole Bay Area.
The 23,535 sq. ft. free-standing building was renovated last year and includes three levels of workspace, conference rooms and offices. The basement level features a kitchen, break space with ping-pong and air hockey, and will include a gym. Throughout the building, walkways, bridges and stairs provide open access and visual interest to the interior.

organizations reach operational excellence. Wrike is used by more than 15,000 companies in 130 countries to transform their operations, enabling them to deliver products and services at scale in the on-demand economy.
