RALEIGH – An up-and-coming firm has decided to relocate its headquarters to Raleigh, bringing more jobs to the region.

Go Fish Digital, a marketing agency with big-name clients like GEICO, United Way, and Adobe, has moved from Washington, D.C. to the Oak City. The startup has set up shop in an 11,000-square-foot office space on 227 Fayetteville Street.

As part of its relocation, the firm has scaled up its workforce by almost 50 percent — from 25 to 39 employees, with 14 new hires. It has also added jobs to the local economy with its employee relocation.

“We had read several studies referencing the strong tech-oriented workforce here in Raleigh and were impressed by the talent coming out of the many universities in the Triangle. So we opened a small office as a test,” the company’s chief operations officer Daniel Russell told WRAL TechWire.

“It turned out that we were able to scale here much quicker than we originally anticipated – and much quicker than in DC, finding top talent and people that perfectly matched our culture.

“We’ve also hired several people looking to move to Raleigh from other areas like New York City and Chicago,” he added.

Founded in 2005, Go Fish Digital specializes in digital content, advertising, search engine optimization, and web design.

“We plan to scale to more than 100 employees over the next four years and our new office space is a key part of that,” Russell said. “Most of these new hires will be entry-level with entry-level salaries, and a big reason why the local universities are so important. But we will still be on the hunt for more experienced leaders and managers as we grow.”
