Tampa, Fla. (November 18, 2021) – Shufflrr, a presentation management solutions company, announced today it has relocated from New York to Tampa, Florida. The company has established its operations at Embarc Collective and plans to create 30 jobs over the next three years in roles such as sales, business development and account management.

In Shufflrr, every file is formatted as a slide, ready to present. It keeps messaging, branding, images, data, and more synchronized in a presentation library, empowering dispersed groups like sales and training teams to easily share files, build decks and show presentations from any device, anywhere.
“Tampa provides a lower cost of living and fewer business barriers, which will better position us to grow Shufflrr over the next several years,” said James Ontra, co-founder and CEO of Shufflrr. “We visited multiple cities and were won over by Tampa’s business-friendly environment and growing tech ecosystem. We’re excited to plant roots in Tampa and grow our operations from this vibrant community.”

Shufflrr joins a growing list of tech companies that have recently relocated or expanded their operations to Tampa and Hillsborough County, including Drift, JustProtect, TrustLayer, OPSWAT, and Fast.
