The 5 minute commute, brought to you by Bay Meadows

James and his husband just moved from San Francisco’s Nob Hill to live in the Field House apartments at Bay Meadows. Sure, they were attracted by the stylish design, new construction and luxurious amenities. The couple’s dog Beanie was particularly pleased with Bay Meadows’ pet-friendly environment, which includes a dedicated dog-wash station (watch very cute video of Beanie getting a bath here>>).

But one of the biggest attractions to Bay Meadows for both James and Travis?

My commute is five minutes! How awesome is that?” quipped James, a Senior Recruiter for WebDAM.

Located on Amphlett Boulevard near the San Mateo Marriott, WebDAM is a digital asset management platform that boasts world-class brands among its clients. The company was founded in 2005 and acquired by stock image and video service Shutterstock last year.

With global brands and high value start-ups increasingly calling San Mateo county home, the “five-minute commute” is within reach for more and more workers who live in the mid-Peninsula. To attract talent amid the booming economy, James notes WebDAM’s numerous advantages:

  • “We’re in the heart of Silicon Valley.”
  • “With 45 employees and growing to 80 by the end of the year, we embody that classic start-up culture, but we’re also backed by a major publicly-traded company.”
  • “We’ve got that casual, fun atmosphere, wearing jeans to work but we work hard. The motto on our coffee mugs? ‘Get s*** done!’”
  • “San Mateo’s got that cool urban vibe going on, with good food and fun bars.”

And San Mateo’s got talent! James isn’t alone in his quick commute. His husband Travis works for GoPro, also located in San Mateo. Travis’s commute is a tad longer, with 10 minutes travel time from Bay Meadows to his desk at GoPro headquarters.

With the competition for talent hotter than ever, James has his job cut out for him. WebDAM is currently hiring for everything from HR and product management to tech, marketing and sales.
