    Hundreds of jobs are on their way to South Florida, and their offices are very unique.

    Saveology's new headquarters don't look like much from the outside, but inside, it's hard to deny it would be a fun place to work.

    "This sends a message you can locate to Broward County and have a successful business venture," Broward County Sheriff Al Lamberti said.

    Sheriff Lamberti was just one of a couple hundred people at the grand opening of the tech company's amenity-filled new offices off Coconut Creek Parkway Thursday night. Saveology owns and operates websites, and handles marketing deals for TV, cell phones and online, and President Michael Aronowitz said its work should be fun.

    "This is really about building a campus that will allow our employees to have a fun environment," he said.

    With a basketball court, ping pong tables, putt putt course, and candy machines, how could work not be fun?

    Even baseball Hall of Famer Andre Dawson is a fan.

    "It's pretty interesting how their employees don't have to leave the building to do things like work out and get a haircut – and work at the same time," Dawson said.

    About 700 people already work here, and in the next three years, 700 more will be hired. Jobs in technology, marketing, and sales are all up for grabs. After that, there is still more room for growth in the 100,000-square-foot-office building.

    "The community will give back to us as we give back to them to grow," Aronowitz said.
