As we celebrate the 10-year anniversary of our office in Kuala Lumpur, we thought we'd take the opportunity to reflect on our decade in Malaysia.
ServiceRocket's presence in Kuala Lumpur began in December 2005. What started off as one employee working out of a local Starbucks has grown to more than one hundred employees in our KL office alone.
A year after establishing our office KL, we moved in to Plaza Sentral, occupying a single lot with a space of 2000 square feet, and we grew to over 20 employees in 2008. Today, we occupy five times the size of our first office space, with a local tea2m seven times the size of our original office.
Some highlights from our amazing journey:
Our culture changed but our values did not
At ServiceRocket, we live our values. While our values haven't changed along our ten-year journey in KL, our cultures have shifted from formal and fixed hours to casual and flexible hours. As we grow, we'll hold vast to our values while our cultures grow and evolve with new Rocketeers.
Our business model with software companies gave us opportunities to work with leading Silicon Valley software companies
We now work with partners including Atlassian, Puppet Labs and Docker, and members of our KL teams help enable some of the hottest Silicon Valley software technologies through support, services and training.
We rebranded from CustomWare to ServiceRocket
In May 2013 we embraced the name "ServiceRocket" to more fully reflect our diverse products set and services that help software companies scale to the enterprise.
We celebrated the 100 employee milestone
We wrote a blog about this big day on September 3, 2014.
We built an entire Engineering team in KL
Our KL engineering team is now a size of 25 strong members including 2 interns and still growing. Our KL engineers work with other Rocketeer engineers around the world, knitting together a global fabric of technical expertise and design knowledge.
