"Austin has a number of benefits such as pro-growth economic policies that help job-creating businesses thrive," CEO Tore Steen said in a statement announcing the move. He said that Texas is among its top markets for investors participating in its marketplace.
For now, the shift consists only of Steen himself moving to Texas. CrowdStreet said it expects to hire 80 people this year and said that as it grows it will split new hires between its current Portland office, its new Austin headquarters and remote work.
