Trending: 5 things no one tells you about starting a startup

godaddy11Like many other tech companies, GoDaddy is expanding its footprint in the Seattle area.

The web-hosting company said today that it will expand its Kirkland, Wash. engineering office with room for more than 225 employees.

GoDaddy, which opened the Kirkland office in November 2013 with just 10,000 square feet of space, has grown from 14 to 127 employees in two years. The company now occupies more than 32,000 square feet at Kirkland’s Carillon Point.

GoDaddy is among a throng of companies with engineering offices in the Seattle region aiming to attract tech talent not interested in making the trek to Silicon Valley or elsewhere.

GoDaddy employs more than 4,000 worldwide in 14 offices and has more than 13 million customers. The company has been expanding its business in recent years under CEO Blake Irving, the former Microsoft and Yahoo executive who has turned GoDaddy’s attention to offering a broad array of online services to small businesses.

Based in Scottsdale, Ariz., GoDaddy raised $460 million in its IPO this past April. Its stock, which is trading at $26.25 a share, has stayed relatively steady since then.
