    Pluralsight Unveils New Headquarters, Announces Partnership with the Utah’s STEM Action Center and the Governor’s Office of Economic Development

    August 1, 2014 08:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time

    SALT LAKE CITY– Pluralsight, a global leader in online training for technology and creative professionals, announced today the official unveiling and ribbon cutting ceremony for its new headquarters at Station Park in Farmington, Utah.

    In addition to the open house, Pluralsight CEO Aaron Skonnard and Utah Governor Gary Herbert jointly announced Pluralsight’s first-of-its-kind initiative with the Utah Stem Action Center and the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) to support K-12 teachers throughout the state. Pluralsight’s five million dollar donation will give Utah educators a free one-year subscription to the company’s online training library, allowing them to become versed on the very knowledge and training that will help their students become career ready and fill the growing talent dearth within the technology community.

    “As one of Utah’s fastest-growing companies, Pluralsight has been a stalwart to the state’s economy,” said Gov. Herbert. “I applaud the company’s commitment to cultivating talent in Davis County and throughout our state. I look forward to the fruits of our partnership to help Utah teachers develop the next generation of technical talent.”

    Serving as a skills catalyst for corporations and individual learners, Pluralsight’s online courses provide instant, timely and convenient learning, enabling professionals to remain relevant and up-to-date on the latest technological demands. Founded in 2004, Pluralsight was bootstrapped for nearly a decade before taking $27.5 million in funding from Insight Venture Partners in January 2013 to spur its exponential growth and vault the company onto the national scene.

    Over a period of eight months from 2013–2014, Pluralsight acquired four companies to bolster its online training sixfold, adding courses in IT, software development, open source and creative skills. Today, with more than 3,000 courses, Pluralsight has the world’s largest curated professional e-learning library, serving individuals, academic institutions and businesses of all sizes. The company’s new headquarters, offers state-of-art surroundings and a collaborative open-space work environment, accommodating its innovative atmosphere and skyrocketing growth.

    “Our new headquarters is reflective of our empowering culture and we feel it exemplifies the vision of removing barriers and democratizing professional training for people around the world,” said Skonnard. “Pluralsight is passionate about supporting the advancement of STEM education and assisting Utah’s educators as they help prepare the next generation of technology professionals. I am greatly appreciative of Governor Herbert’s commitment to computer science education, and I am honored to be part of a movement that will support and enhance Utah’s teachers, students and the state’s expanding tech community.”

    With an estimated 1 million computing jobs to be left vacant by 2020, Pluralsight is set to play a critical role in addressing the upcoming talent shortage in Silicon Valley and throughout the nation. Pluralsight also continues to encourage adoption of high-tech skills for youths through partnerships with K-12 schools and free online coding courses for kids, all of which is inspired by Skonnard’s personal experience of learning to code on his family’s Apple II at the age of 10.
