Tech employer quits KofP for Conshy; now hiring (Update)

NextDocs moving to Six Tower Bridge

Tech employer quits KofP for Conshy; now hiring (Update)

 NextDocs, the growing pharmaceutical clinical-testing compliance software company founded by Microsoft veteran Zikria Syed nine years ago, is leaving its offices at Brandywine Real Estate Trust's 500 North Gulph Rd., King of Prussia and moving with around 100 employees to 30,000 sq ft at Oliver Tyrone Pulver Corp.'s Six Tower Bridge in Conshohocken, according to CBRE svp Scott Miller, who represented NextDocs.

"NextDocs chose the property due to its centralized location" closer to Philadelphia and the "live-work-play lifestyle," as well as "the quality of the building," according to Miller. 

Like other landlords, Brandywine is weighing upgrades to its suburban properties as regional vacancies rise.

NextDocs employs 126, including 85 at the headquarters. The company is hiring and expects to boost total employment to 160 by year's end: engineers, product development and support, and salespeople, for Sanofi/Aventis and other drugmaker-customers.

NextDocs is recruiting nationally, see for example its recent announced recruitment of Microsoft's Nitin Bhatia. For more on NextDocs jobs or to apply, go to http://www.nextdocs.com/en-us/Careers.aspx
