TriNet, a human resources solutions company, has expanded its Austin office in the Research Park area and has hired more than 80 new engineers.
The company, based in San Leandro, Calif., now occupies 33,557 square feet of offices with employees focused on technology, sales and service. TriNet is focused on serving small to midsize businesses in the Austin area with human resources products.
A strong demand from startups and small to medium sized businesses convinced TriNet to expand its business in Austin. It is also seeing a strong demand from companies looking for help to stay compliant with the Affordable Care Act regulations, according to a news release.
“Austin is rapidly becoming one of the country’s foremost centers for technology innovation and entrepreneurship,” Craig Flower, Chief Technology Officer, TriNet, said in a news release. “This makes Austin a perfect hub for TriNet to recruit exceptional talent that can deliver SMB-focused, state-of-the-art HR technology solutions to help our clients succeed.”
Among TriNet’s customers is Aceable, an online driver education site, based in Austin. The company has expanded from five employees two years ago to more than 40 employees today.
“In order to scale from five team members to the 40-plus we are today, we needed an HR partner that would keep us in legal compliance, provide our team with great benefits and make sure everyone was paid on time,” Blake Garrett, Chief Executive Officer, Aceable, said in a news release. “TriNet has done that and more.”
