Metal Toad Office in Beverly Hills

Filed under:

After several years of operating in Los Angeles, in the nearby Century City neighborhood, Metal Toad has moved its central Los Angeles AWS Cloud Consulting operation to the city of Beverly Hills.

While Metal Toad launched their remote-first policy back in October of 2019 - in large part to provide commute time relief for the Los Angeles Metro workers - the central location of Beverly Hills and proximity to the majority of media & entertainment studios: Sony, FOX, Paramount, makes it an ideal jumping off point and convening location.

Also in October of 2019, Beverly Hills was the location of the first annual State of Video+Cloud VIP Luncheon, an event that drew Media & Entertainment executives from ABC, Sony, FOX, the GRAMMYS, Emmys - as well as AWS Cloud solutions architects and executives.

As a hub Beverly Hills is just one of the locations that supports Metal Toad workers, but provides a unique, entertainment-industry friendly venue for our LA workforce that ranges from the South Bay, to Pasedena, Los Angeles and beyond.
