Known as the Eastside Tech Hub, the 81,000-square-foot, two-story facility is located at 2416 East Sixth St. in East Austin.
The new center will house H-E-B Digital team members in the Austin area, complementing the digital staff at the grocer’s San Antonio headquarters.
With its opening, the Eastside Tech Hub became new headquarters for Favor, the on-demand food and grocery delivery company that H-E-B acquired in February 2018.
Sporting an open-office design, the facility provides a variety of work areas on both floors.
H-E-B Digital and Favor are hiring across all areas of expertise, including product management, product design and software engineering.
Work settings include open collaboration areas, individual workspaces and more than 50 meeting rooms equipped with advanced technology and video conferencing.
To reflect H-E-B and Favor’s heritage, the East Austin office has meeting rooms named after H-E-B brand products, famous personal assistants from popular culture and Texas landmarks and cities.
The location is within walking distance of restaurants, coffee shops, breweries and the Seventh Street H-E-B supermarket, which is being remodeled to offer a “world-class shopping experience.”
The office also has a wellness center with a rock-climbing wall, curated fitness classes, bike parking and showers.
H-E-B partnered with IA Interior Architects to renovate and customize the former warehouse site. “Having a shared space like this is crucial to both H-E-B Digital and Favor’s rapid growth,” said Jag Bath, chief digital officer of H-E-B and CEO of Favor.
