Dialectica announced today that it plans on creating more 500 jobs in Canada over the next three years, with 100 of those roles in a new Vancouver office.
The company – which started in Europe in 2015 and set up operations in Quebec a year ago – will establish its Montreal office as its Americas Hub to support its growth and advance its global expansion strategy.
The aggressive hiring plans will result in more than 50 percent of Dialetica’s global workforce being in Canada.
With Canada as its home base for the Americas, the company – which serves as a knowledge broker to the world’s leading consulting, private equity, and hedge fund companies – can more easily meet the growing demand for client access to primary research.
“The timing has never been better to advance our global expansion strategy with a growing team on the ground in Montreal, and a new office opening in Vancouver. This move enables us to deliver on our promise to help business professionals around the world make better and faster business decisions,” said George Tsarouchas, CEO and co-founder of Dialectica.
“Demand for our service is growing as leading investment and corporate strategy clients require increasingly faster access to critical data and on-demand knowledge to make informed decisions about mergers, acquisitions, and other high value transactions. With our track record as a leading European company in the expert network market, our Americas hub positions us to accelerate our growth, innovate, and keep pace with customer demands.”
Following extensive research on east coast options in the U.S. and Canada, the rapidly growing European company chose Montreal in September 2020 as the initial gateway for its global expansion.
While seven people moved from Dialectica’s office in Greece to Montreal at that time to help kick-start its Canadian operations, the company now has more than 100 employees there who have been hired locally, with recruitment plans underway to add another 100 people to that office by next summer.
“When we chose Montreal as our first office outside of Europe, there were several factors that influenced our decision: a supportive immigration system, cultural and linguistic diversity, access to top notch talent from world leading universities, and a young and engaged talent pool,” said Maggie Da Prato, Head of Talent for Dialectica. “Montreal has a very European and cosmopolitan feel to it, aligning with our company’s operations in Europe. These are all the same reasons that influenced our decision to make it our Americas hub.”
The company also chose Vancouver as its second Canadian office as it’s in the same time zone as many other business hubs that can benefit from Dialectica’s services; has a thriving technology ecosystem; and offers a great quality of life that may be attractive to young professionals from other Dialectica office locations. With Dialectica’s aggressive hiring plans and focus on new graduates, proximity to some of the best Canadian universities was also a factor in the decision to open an office in Vancouver.
Unlike many other companies that look to hire experienced team members, Dialectica has been intentional about recruiting the best and brightest graduates, providing these younger generation employees with opportunities to rapidly advance their careers by ensuring they learn and master the real-world skills they need to succeed.
Relocation packages are also provided to Canadians who would like to move to Montreal or Vancouver to work at this thriving and fast-growing company.
