Following a year of record growth, digital real estate company Opendoor is looking to Canada to bulk up its technical talent.
Opendoor announced this week that it plans to hire nearly 100 product development engineers in Canada, starting with Toronto.
The new staff, who will be hired over the next several years, will help build on the financial platforms, pricing systems, and technology infrastructure integral to Opendoor’s operations.
“Toronto [is] one of the fastest growing tech hubs in North America,” said Michael Gentili, Opendoor’s senior director of software engineering.
“Toronto has incredible tech talent, particularly front-end and back-end engineers and data scientists—many who have learned from some of the best tech schools in the world and honed their skills and expertise at innovative startups.”
