Qstride expands into Ann Arbor with downtown space

Qstride is expanding its physical presence across the U.S. and the Troy-based firm has its eyes on Ann Arbor.

The software company, which already has a growing office in downtown Detroit, is opening a another office in downtown Ann Arbor and Virginia this winter. The Ann Arbor office has one person right now, but the leadership at Qstride expects that head count to grow.

"We have local people in these locations," says Shane Gianino, CEO of Qstride. "These are hotbeds for new technology."

The 20-month-old firm specializes in analytics and business intelligence software. Qstride has watched its revenue jump 135 percent over the last year, allowing it to expand its staff to 22 people. It has clients across the U.S. including in New York, California, Arizona and Ohio.

Gianino says there are a couple of reasons why Qstride choose Ann Arbor for its newest location. The biggest reason is its proximity to the University of Michigan.

"There is a lot of talent at the University of Michigan," Gianino says. "We need software engineers. Our lead data scientists is out of Ann Arbor and is in charge of that office."
