The business of transferring currency internationally is all about connecting communities. Xoom provides secure, affordable online solutions for customers to send money to family and friends. In expanding and relocating its headquarters, Xoom took a proactive step to optimizing its physical environment. Visioning sessions with the design team identified the project goals of improving work processes, enhancing product development, and supporting recruitment efforts.
The resulting space reflects a culture of transparency, diversity, and respect. The planning concept centers on the basic principles of connection and interaction. The space’s key feature is the “Xoom Gallery”, an open collaboration lounge with touchdown workstations, casual seating, and phone booths, which blurs the lines between hospitality and office. In lieu of corner offices, open-door meeting rooms, used for scrum sessions and training, further enhance the communal culture while sharing views of the city. Supporting both collaborative and focused work, a menu of spaces provides employees with a variety of work settings suited to their needs.
