Three years ago Pinterest opened their first Canadian office and appointed Erin Elofson as Country Manager.
This week they announced plans for a new engineering hub in Toronto.
Pinterest plans to add 50 new employees to the hub in 2021 for engineering, sales, insights and marketing roles, all of whom will be working to build its global products and shopping experience.
“Our new engineering office in Toronto will help Pinterest access world-class engineering and machine learning talent while contributing to the technology community in Toronto,” said Rahim Daya, head of international product and the Toronto engineering tech lead for Pinterest.
Pinterest says that its decision to open the hub in Toronto was based on the large talent pool emerging in the city from universities such as the University of Waterloo and the University of Toronto.
