Hootsuite has announced the opening of a new office in Atlanta, Georgia—a dynamic tech hub that the global leader in social media management views as critical to accelerating its expansion within the US. The company plans to hire 60+ Atlanta-based positions by the end of 2022.
“As we look to rapidly expand our US footprint, Atlanta is an obvious choice due to the impressive growth in its tech sector and a rapidly growing and diverse SaaS talent pool. We also look forward to meeting local college graduates who want to start their careers in tech,” said Tom Keiser, CEO, Hootsuite. “Atlanta is a talent-rich city, where culture, education, innovation and tech come to thrive. We are so excited to be here.”
The Hootsuite Atlanta office is set to open on February 1, 2022, in the WeWork Coda—a LEED Platinum office facility and centre of innovation in Midtown Atlanta’s Tech Square. The SaaS company will initially set its sights on expanding operations, delivering customer value, and building out diverse go-to-market teams.
“We welcome Hootsuite to metro Atlanta and congratulate them on their investment to grow in our region,” said Katie Kirkpatrick, President and CEO, Metro Atlanta Chamber. “The availability and diversity of talent from our colleges and universities, coupled with the strength of our region’s technology ecosystem and business community, will surely contribute to Hootsuite’s continued growth moving forward.”
Hootsuite empowers its people to choose where and how they work either in the office, remotely, or as a combination. The Vancouver headquartered company’s 15 global offices, referred to as “Nests,” are flexible and creative hubs built for collaboration and social connection.
“With more than 325 Canadian companies operating in the state, Canada is an important partner for investment in Georgia. And it’s exciting to hear that Atlanta—named the number one tech hub in the U.S. two years in a row—was selected as a strategic growth market for Hootsuite’s expansion within the U.S.,” said Pat Wilson, Commissioner, Georgia Department of Economic Development. “It’s a pleasure to welcome Hootsuite to Georgia, and I am confident the state’s many assets will help the company find continued success here.”
