Boomi, an intelligent connectivity and automation provider, has announced the opening of new offices in Canada.
As a pioneer of Integration Platform-as-a-service, Boomi offers end-to-end intelligent automation solutions that enable modern digital organizations to accelerate their business outcomes with speed, productivity, and flexibility.
The US company stated that it will establish a Centre of Excellence in Vancouver, intended to provide support to its strategic business functions such as sales and business development.
“It is always a pleasure to see leading companies choosing Canada to expand their operations, and we are pleased to welcome Boomi to Vancouver and the opportunities they bring to our local technology industry,” stated François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry.
“Canada is a destination of choice for investment by leading technology companies like Boomi,” he added.
Boomi says it aims to tap into the skilled local workforce and hire 80 foundational team members. It also expects to make “a near-term $20M impact in the local economy,” according to a statement from the company, with a “significant expansion over the next several years, anticipating to exceed $100M.”
“We’re thrilled to welcome Boomi to Vancouver as a new member of our city’s rapidly expanding tech sector,” said Vancouver Mayor Ken Sim. “Boomi’s decision to bring jobs and investment here further demonstrates Vancouver’s growth as a global hub for technology and innovation.”
The company serves 20,000 customers in 70 countries, including globally recognized brands such as AT&T, LinkedIn, and Moderna. Boomi also has a significant presence in the Canadian market, with local customers such as Deloitte Canada, Canadian Pacific Railway, and Ritchie Bros Auctioneers.
Boomi’s new Centre of Excellence, located in high-flux downtown Vancouver, will leverage and expand upon its existing executive talent in the region, who bring expertise from technology organizations such as Crystal Decisions, Business Objects, SAP, and Google.
“Boomi is a welcome addition to British Columbia’s thriving tech ecosystem,” stated Brenda Bailey, Minister of Jobs, Economic Development and Innovation. “Boomi will provide a great opportunity for BC’s world class tech workers to enter the diverse field of intelligent integration and automation.”
Steve Lucas, CEO of Boomi, is excited about the opportunity.
“This expansion is an exciting opportunity for Boomi to tap into the pool of talent in a vibrant and dynamic city that embraces innovation and technology,” says Lucas. “Having worked closely with many technology leaders in the Vancouver area, and with our commitment to providing industry-leading integration and automation solutions, we are eager to bring our expertise to Canada and contribute to the flourishing tech community in the region.”
His company also recently announced the appointment of global executives, including Chief Commercial Officer, Greg Wolfe; Chief Marketing Officer, Alison Biggan; Chief Strategy Officer, Rahim Bhatia; and Global Commercial Market Vice President, Troy Anderson, who will be leading the Vancouver office.
“Technology is one of B.C.’s fastest-growing sectors, with more than 11,000 companies employing more than 131,000 people,” noted Bailey.
The news of Boomi’s expansion follows two other growth announcements, where the company revealed that it is doubling its current engineering and technical workforce as it opens a dedicated office in India and also increasing investment in Japan.
