This new office will support the development of Jahia in the region, working locally with international partners such as CGI and existing customers such as the financial group La Capitale, the Desjardins bank, Laval University or the Montreal University but also all of Jahia's U.S. customers.
"In addition to growing our Washington office, driven by the growth of our customers and partners base in the Americas, we've felt the need to have a fully fledged R&D and support team in North America that could match the expectations of larger and sophisticated customers.
"Thanks to the transfer of two of our most senior resources from Europe to Canada, in addition of recent hires, the team is already up-to-speed and provides the best possible assistance to our customers and partners.
"We are now looking for additional passionate talents to join us, and we are anticipating many more hires for our Toronto office this year," says Emmanuel Garcin, Vice President of Jahia and GM for the Americas.
"We are excited to expand our Canadian team, and especially in the vibrant Toronto technology hub. We are now focusing of hiring A-players to expand our next-generation platform with cutting edge solutions," stated Stephanie Rouaud, Director of Software Development and QA.
