...and we think we're going to love it there!
Seven years ago, Lever set up shop in a small San Francisco office with an ambitious mission: to revolutionize the way that businesses large and small are able to find, engage, and hire top talent. Since then, our team has grown from 3 to over 200, we’ve moved into larger offices three times, and our products are used by over 2,000 customers in 40 countries. So today, we are beyond excited to announce the opening of our second office — in Toronto — where we will continue to lead the way in HR tech by connecting companies to incredible talent.
“Toronto was the clear choice for Lever due to the proximity to our customers, the size and quality of the local talent pool, its positive business climate and, perhaps most importantly, its alignment with our commitment to diversity and inclusion,” said Sarah Nahm, Lever Founder and CEO.
When we first kicked off the search for our first office outside of San Francisco, Toronto immediately caught our eye — and the city’s motto, “Diversity: Our Strength,” sealed the deal. Since Lever’s beginning, diversity and inclusion have been an integral part of our DNA and are a part of every decision we make. In a city with more than 200 ethnicities and 130 languages spoken, we know we’ve made the right decision.
On our new-to-Toronto agenda: checking out the incredible tech scene and fantastic universities that are creating jobs and attracting amazing people. We’re excited to join some of our own customers there (hi, Shopify! hi, TIFF! hi, PagerDuty!), and hope to build strong, new partnerships, too. We can’t wait to be an active part of Toronto’s thriving startup community and meet the innovative companies moving to and growing in Toronto who are looking to connect with incredible talent — something we’ve made a name for ourselves doing.
We’re extraordinarily proud of the company we’ve built so far (not to mention humbled to be recognized as the #1 place to work in San Francisco, as well as a top workplace in the entire United States). Our people are Lever’s biggest competitive advantage: we’ll continue investing in our “Leveroos” by bringing our people-first culture to Toronto.
Interested in joining us as we grow in Toronto? We’d love to hear from you! We’re looking for great people to join our engineering, sales, customer success, and HR teams. Check out our open opportunities or sign up for notifications here and we’ll let you know when new roles open up or we’re hosting an in-town event.
We can’t wait to meet you, Toronto!
