Palo Alto giant Intuit is upsizing its Canadian footprint with a new Canadian headquarters.
The global financial technology platform behind TurboTax, Credit Karma, QuickBooks, and Mailchimp says its new HQ sits in the heart of downtown Toronto, located in The Well at Front Street West and Spadina Avenue.
“We’ve identified the city of Toronto as a global talent hub and a top growth site for Intuit globally,” stated David Marquis, vice president and Canada country manager at Intuit. “We’re thrilled to officially open the doors of this dynamic, new, hybrid space to serve our employees, customers and community.”
The 116,000-square-foot office was designed to optimize Intuit’s hybrid culture while creating the ideal environment to co-create, make connections, and innovate, according to a statement from the company.
“With this newly designed workplace, we’re making a meaningful investment in our growth in Canada, while creating more opportunities for technologists to do the best work of their lives at Intuit,” added Marquis.
The new HQ features a continuum of options—from flexible spaces designed for teams that need both individual desks and collaborative furniture settings for longer term projects to quiet zones that allow employees to focus without noise or distraction and private space for staff to focus on mental health and spiritual needs. There is an exercise area, as well as spaces designed for social connections and wellness, including outdoors and at coffee stations.
“Toronto is home to some of the best technology talent in the world,” believes Marquis. “We’re looking to tap into the incredible diverse talent pool in our own backyard.” added Marquis.
“With this move, current and future Canadian employees will accelerate our mission of powering prosperity around the world,” he added.
