Started only six months ago, Porch.com has enjoyed an impressive and rapid growth. Curbed was invited yesterday to attend an open house at their office (1551 Eastlake) as they officially celebrated their presence in Seattle.
Porch may have started in the basement of founder Matt Ehrlichman's home, but since February they have enjoyed a new office space with lots of open space for their now 125 employees. And there are still plans for growth, as they have more space to develop that they plan to have completed by the end of summer.
Porch came from the frustration when Ehrlichman was struggling to find the right professionals for what he needed while working on his first home. Noticing that there wasn't a one-stop shop online where you can search for inspiration, project data, and word-of-mouth referrals, Porch was born.
Along with clients and employees, Seattle mayor Ed Murray made an appearance to congratulate, celebrate and participate in the official ribbon cutting. Not to mention thank Porch for adding another company to Seattle that is creating jobs and innovation.
