Enhanced engineering capability set to better manage customer needs and platform enhancements.
DALLAS, TX [February 20, 2020] -- Mercado Labs – the leading software transforming the supply chain for international importers – has officially opened an office space in Austin, Texas at The Cathedral. Austin is the second space in Texas for the company in addition to offices in California, Pennsylvania, Hong Kong, London, and Virginia.

Mercado will expand its engineering capability to Austin in order to better manage customer needs and platform enhancements. With recent new hires including Kyle Rowland as Engineering Lead and Patrick McKinnon as Technical Advisor, this move will further bolster the technical capabilities of Mercado and help to meet their ambitious growth plans in the opening quarters of this year.

Mercado CEO Rob Garrison championed Austin as one of his top choices when considering opening a tech hub.

“Mercado seeks to attract top technology talent to expand the platform, and Austin consistently ranks as one of the best cities in the nation for technology experts,” Garrison said. “We were also looking for a pro-business environment, and Austin is ranked in the top 10 in the nation for entrepreneurs.”

Garrison specifically chose The Cathedral, located on 16th Street in Austin, as the space to host the expanded engineering team because of its entrepreneur-focused mentality, thanks largely to the female entrepreneurs who founded the space in October 2019.

The Cathedral focuses on providing a safe and open environment to support local artists, entrepreneurs, and community members by providing proper resources for them to succeed.

“We wanted our space to inspire anyone and everyone working on the things they are passionate about,” The Cathedral Founder and CEO Monica Ceniceros said. “Working with other businesses and startups really creates a fun and diverse collaborative environment.”

The new office is now open and is a further sign of Mercado's rapid growth over the past 12 months. With further plans to expand the team and new customers set to come on board, 2020 will be a significant year for Mercado to establish an even stronger foothold in the market.
