A tech startup called Nirvana Technology has chosen Wynwood as its new home, with plans to hire hundreds of employees.
Nirvana is being founded by Silicon Valley legend Bill Harris, who has moved to Miami.
Harris was the founding CEO of Paypal. He was also the CEO of Intuit and the founding CEO at Personal Capital.
Other founders of Nirvana include executives who built Marcus by Goldman Sachs and ING Direct, one of the first ever fintech companies.
“We’re bringing the fire of Silicon Valley – innovation, ambition and mission – to the new Silicon Beach,” said Harris.
Nirvana is now hiring tech talent across engineering, product, marketing, and operations.
Harris said Nirvana will have fifty employees by year end, and 200 employees by next year.
The company’s website lists an address next to the Brightline tracks.
