Dyn creates California-style office environment

You and your manager at one of the state's fastest growing tech firms could talk it over across a desk in the traditionally stilted office environment, or you could bounce ideas off each other while playing Ping-Pong in the game room, knocking in a few golf balls at the indoor putting green, sipping cappuccino in the Dyn Cafe Annex or spotting each other for a few bench presses in the gym.
There are plenty of new work stations for Dyn's growing number of employees, not to mention hanging gardens, original murals and a small movie theater.
Prior to the expansion, Dyn had about 200 employees crowded into a space built for 160 to 170. That second-floor space had already been featured in local media and the trade press for amenities such as arcade games, a rock climbing wall, a deck overlooking the Merrimack River and a private restaurant.
A conference center with space for 300 and a theater with seating for 50 are designed for internal training, product launches, community events and the occasional movie night.
"We see not only the Dyn culture, but our space as a recruiting tool," said Paul Mailhot, vice president of business operations and clerk of the works for the expansion, which exceeded the company's $1 million estimate, although he declined to say by how much.
"We're certainly not done yet," Mailhot said. "We're eyeing another 40,000 to 50,000 square feet in the same building. Our intent is to stay here. We enjoy this building and the relationship we have with the landlord and other tenants."
