Remitly, an online international money transfer company based in Seattle has chosen to open a new office in Downtown Spokane. The growing company will take space in Bennett Block building at 530 W. Main where Rover.com's Spokane office once was. Rover has since relocated to a larger space in the Wonder Building.
Remitly says their new offices in Spokane will primarily be a product and engineering office where they will employ full-stack junior and senior software developers. They decline to share just how many jobs the new office will create however.
The company says they chose to expand to Spokane due to a strong local job market, workforce and low cost of operations. This will be Remitly's second office location in the US , although with much of the company's business done internationally they also have offices in London, Dublin, Manila and Managua, Nicaragua. In all the company employs over 1,000.
Remitly's product allows people to send and receive money via smartphone apps. The company claims to have close to 2 million customers and helps send and receive more then $6 billion dollars annually.
