When All Media Network moved its Ann Arbor office from near the city's airport to a space above Cafe Felix on Main Street last fall it served both aesthetic and utilitarian purposes.
"We got a cool old space in an old building with high ceilings and big windows," says Zac Johnson, senior product manager of All Media Network
The new office also worked out as the best commuting option for the startup’s Ann Arbor contingent. Of those five people (including two new hires in January), three of them live within walking or busing distance of the new office. The other two are driving distance but were able to snag convenient parking spaces. Most of the office utilizes Go Passes.
Cool factor, check. Utility factor, check.
"This is the place that fit us the best," Johnson says.
The Silicon Valley-based tech startup runs websites like AllMusic.com
, which is a bit like the IMDB website for music. All Media Network’s Ann Arbor is currently working to launch an iOS mobile app for AllMusic.com. It is also working to help grow the company's website usership over the next year.
