As usual we always find it difficult to keep a secret. So you may already have heard that MOO is going to open an office in the US later this year.

"Why?" you ask. Well, ever since MOO launched in September 2006, we've had orders from customers around the world. After a little investigation, we've found that over 50% of you are in the USA. By opening an office there too, we'll be able to ship your orders so much faster! (We think that deserves a *Yay!*, even if we do say so ourselves.)

"When?" you want to know. Well, we haven't opened our doors just yet as we still looking for some great people to join the MOO Crew in the USA. In particular, we are looking for a new customer service team and an operations manager. If you love MOO and you (want to) live in Providence, Rhode Island, please stay tuned for job descriptions.

**UPDATE** - please see below for details of the Operations Manager role.

As for everyone wondering when we will start printing in the US, you'll have to wait just a little longer. We can't tell you an exact date, but we promise you it will happen before June. So, stay tuned. We'll announce here on the blog and in our newsletter when we officially launch.

About the Company:

MOO is an award-winning online stationers based in London, England. We launched in 2006, with one product, the MiniCard. About half the size of a regular business card, MiniCards are made using variable print technology, meaning every card in the set can be different. MOO has subsequently expanded its product line to include Business Cards, Stickers, Postcards, Greeting Cards and Note Cards.

MOO has grown rapidly, enjoying a global demand for its products from day one, and continues to work with some of the web's fastest growing online communities, including Flickr, Facebook, iStockphoto, Etsy and Live Journal to name a few. Today, a team of 35 people develop and operate MOO's services from two London locations. Their mission is simple - deliver remarkable products which delight customers.

MOO ships its products worldwide from the United Kingdom, but plans to launch a second fulfillment and customer service operation in the USA by mid 2009.

MOO is a investor backed startup, with funding from the Accelerator Group, Atlas Venture and Index Ventures.

That's fantastic!
But...are you sure you wouldn't rather open in the San Francisco Bay Area? I mean, San Jose is Silicon Valley, and I would love to work for you guys! ;p Seriously, though, very exciting to hear you're coming to the States!

I personally think Kansas City would be a much better place to open an office...it's centrally located. ;0)
