Another Look Inside GitHub’s San Francisco Headquarters
Github is a popular development platform that allows developers to share their code with friends and colleagues. The company is headquartered in a beautiful 55,000-square-foot office space in San Francisco’s SoMa District.
“Wildly quirky, wildly successful GitHub, builder of web-based collaboration tools for software developers, got its start with early employees writing code in dive bars, coffee shops and home offices. Given that this unconventional but agreeable culture helped build a $900 million company in just six years, F+M and Studio Hatch suggested recreating it within the company’s new 55,000-square-foot building. Every morning GitHubbers choose where they want to work: in one of two bars, several cafes, a library, a park, a speakeasy, a museum, a coder cave, or from home. “F+M is totally about collaboration. They listened, gathered the creatives and made our wish list for our home base come alive in the most unexpected ways. We are thrilled with our space and the connection we have created with this great city of San Francisco.” – Scott Chacon, CEO of Github
