Launch Pads: Globys employees work in a hidden room and relax in a fully-stocked company pub

A Ms. Pac Man machine keeps Globys employees relaxed in the company pub.

As a company, it’s important to have a space where your employees can both work efficiently and also relax when needed. Globys, a big data analytics company providing contextual marketing to mobile carriers, seems to have just that.

After moving into the old Amazon.com space on the seventh floor of 705 Union Station last November, Globys decided to whack everything down and redesign the layout. The result is a wide-open workspace above the International District complete with stunning views of Seattle’s sports stadiums, downtown and even Puget Sound.

My personal favorites were the secret library and a fully-stocked pub complete with a Ms. Pac Man arcade machine and a shuffleboard.

“It’s quite a comfortable break room,” says CEO Derek Edwards.

Comfortable and badass, actually. Take a ride with us through the space in the video above.

    oh dear. poor globys. nice new offices, but the amount of people they burn through in their death marches doesn’t seem to stop.

    contextual marketing may be what they are attempting to grow into, but the cash cow of phone bill etl pays the bills & is being eaten away by accenture, seibel. oracle and so on.

    hope the new offices help right things!

    Seems like a pretty cool space and the location is great. Although may be tempting to sneak out for a quick game during the work day ;)

    Nice perhaps for the employees based in Seattle … Nothing like it for the remote employees !

    Not sure what the “death march” guy is talking about, I love Globys. What a great group of loyal and hard-working people. It’s a breath of fresh air in the highly competitive and often cut-throat tech scene.
