Citrix moving into Raleigh warehouse district


"If you build an office facility today, you really need to raise the bar and give employees a reason to want to come into the office so they can be more productive," explained Vice President and General Manager Jesse Lipson.

Citrix - a tech giant known for its creative solutions for virtual work and being able to do computing from just about anywhere - is also interested in cutting edge architecture.

"I think it kind of reflects the spirit of Raleigh, where kind of the mix of modern technology and the kind of traditional heritage of the city," said Lipson.

When you walk in the front door of its new building, you'll see three floors of old shipping containers that are soon to be conference rooms.

"So we'll have normal conference room tables in there and people will have normal meetings in there, just with an amazing views and amazing place for inspiration," Lipson explained.

And if that doesn't make employees happy, maybe racquetball courts, a fitness center, and a basketball court on the roof will.

If that sounds good to you, Citrix is hiring. 500 employees will work out of the building when it opens this summer.
