Cvent has announced its intention to hire more than 1,000 people globally. After a strong 2017 and the addition of several thousand new customers, the hiring will help fuel Cvent’s future growth.

“We are looking to find the best talent with a passion for customer success and for transforming the meetings and events industry,” said Reggie Aggarwal, founder and CEO of Cvent. “Cvent has continued to steadily grow from a small start-up in 1999, to the globally recognised software leader with more than 3,000 employees. While our growth has been rapid, our winning culture – and our unwavering focus on our employees – has remained core to what we do.”

To support the expanded headcount in 2018, Cvent will add more than 13,000 sqm of office space worldwide, including 7,000 sqm to its headquarters in Tysons Corner, Virginia making it 18,500 sqm. Many of the new employees will be hired at its headquarters in addition to its domestic offices in Austin, Boston, Atlanta, Portland, Dallas, Draper (Utah), Fredericton (Canada), and its international offices in London, Singapore, Melbourne (Australia) and New Delhi. Cvent also plans to open offices in Dubai and Germany later this year in order meet global demand for its event and hospitality cloud platforms.

“Our recruiting team is already hard at work looking for new people to bring into our Cvent Nation across the globe,” said Sophia MacDonald, VP of Human Resources. “Cvent’s rapid growth creates opportunities for accelerated career trajectories, and we encourage everyone who wants to be part of an incredibly dynamic, fast-growing technology company to apply and join our team.”
