Fountains at Gateway

Saltworks Security, an application security company based in the Atlanta area, has leased 5,464 square feet of office space on the top floor of One Fountain Plaza at Fountains at Gateway, announced Fountains developer Scott Graby, president of Hearthstone Properties.

Saltworks Security partners with customers to build world-class application security programs throughout their customers' software development lifecycle. Saltworks customers include global financial institutions, healthcare, insurance and other customers who create applications that manage highly secure data. 

Dennis Hurst, founder and president of Saltworks Security, said the company will hire more than 25 engineers in software development and application security at the new Fountains office, which will be the firm's third office in the US.

"On behalf of the Murfreesboro City Council, I want to congratulate Saltworks Security on its decision to locate its new office at the Fountains at Gateway corporate office campus," said Murfreesboro Mayor Shane McFarland. "Murfreesboro and, more specifically, the Gateway district with its attractive location, talent base and amenities continue to attract high-paying jobs to our city.  We look forward to welcoming Saltworks and their growing team of software development and application security engineers to Murfreesboro." 

"We are very enthusiastic about expanding Saltworks Security's operations to Murfreesboro, because we wanted a location where people can work close to home," said Hurst. "We look forward to building our team with experienced engineers and developers who live in the area and don't want to commute to Nashville as well as new engineering graduates from Middle Tennessee State University." 

"Saltworks' office at Fountains at Gateway will offer an exceptional work environment for our new engineering team," Hurst continued. "Scott Graby has created a high-tech, Class A office building in a development that offers every amenity. The on-site eateries, park spaces, putting greens, and the adjacent greenway will give our engineers convenient ways to recharge during challenging projects." 

Construction of Saltworks' space begins this week and will be completed in January 2020. 

"Saltworks is a great addition to Fountains at Gateway, and reflects the modern, technology-based company profile that we envisioned when we created Fountains." said Graby. "The company's strong industry reputation and growth make it a great fit for Murfreesboro, where many software engineers get their start at MTSU and decide to make this area their home. We are delighted to welcome Saltworks."
