What is HqO?

HqO is the industry’s fastest-growing tenant experience technology and professional services company. Our operating system is designed for property teams to manage all customer-facing technology tools within their buildings, helping foster greater relationships with tenants, and creating unforgettable experiences.

To learn more about how HqO got its start, listen to Episode 1 of our podcast, The Let’s Go Show.

Our Values

At HqO, our mantra is simply LET’S GO!, which represents a set of deeply embedded values that define the way in which we operate.

Our values are not painted on a wall like many companies. There's no need for that — we live them every day and celebrate them weekly through Shout Outs. We hire for, assess and promote those that demonstrate our values.

We value endless learners — those that are naturally curious and self-starters that seek continual professional growth. By building a team of endless learners, HqO is able to adapt, innovate and grow.

We are relentless in our pursuit of excellence, always striving to provide a superior solution that exceeds our customers’ expectations. HqO teammates expect excellence and demand it of one another.

We expect directness and transparency in all that we do. HqO teammates are honest with themselves, their colleagues, and the company to ensure we’re always tackling challenges head-on. We value independent and critical thinkers.

We value those who operate at a fast pace and who find repeatable and scalable ways to increase our productivity. While heroic saves at deadline are sometimes necessary, we look for people who can enable institutional speed over the long term. We seek the perfect balance of speed and quality in all that we do.

We value those who put the team first, by supporting and championing others. People who embody goodness share information, help teammates hit their goals, and look to help those in our communities regardless of how it benefits our business.

We value people who take complete ownership of their work results and those of their team. Those who take ownership never make excuses, and instead are always looking to improve and find ways to win for HqO.

TeX: Our Platform Vision

At HqO, we believe that the built environment represents the next major computing platform that will lead to a technology revolution focused on our physical world.

As of the end of 2020, there have been an estimated 1.7B internet enabled devices installed in commercial buildings. Simply put, our buildings are now computers. In order to unlock the potential of these large-scale computing platforms that host our everyday lives, there needs to be a software platform that simplifies the complexity of the physical platform.

HqO’s HqOS platform powers a tenant experience operating system that includes a software interface for building end-users (i.e. apps for buildings), an app platform for third-party developers to build on top of, and administrative tools for property owners and operators.

By creating a software interface for the built environment, we believe we can begin to unlock innovation in areas that are critical to our communities such as health and wellness, sustainability, mobility and transportation, retail, and more.

Working at HqO

Office Culture

We believe deeply in the value of our teams working in a physical environment that is designed to foster collaboration, communication, innovation, and teamwork. In fact, we believe in it so much we’ve created an industry segment around it! Our office is high energy and creative, filled with people who really enjoy one another — it's just good to be in.

While we greatly value our offices, we also believe in giving our employees flexibility in their lives so that they can be most productive. We believe the saying “motion isn’t progress” both as it applies to being in office and hours worked. In order for us to achieve our mission, we need to be in office, we need to work smart and we need to work hard, but above all else, we need effective people who believe in the mission and live our values.

Our Work From Anywhere policy gives ramped-up employees the ability to work from anywhere on average one day per week, and/or after 2pm on Fridays.

Office Safety

At HqO, we have worked hard to provide a safe work environment for our employees and have made a number of adjustments due to COVID-19. Some of our workplace safety measures include:

Office Locations

HqO is headquartered in Downtown Boston and is the location most HqOers call home. We have expanded and grown globally with offices in New York, Paris, London, Los Angeles, Toronto, and a Texas office opening in 2021.
