Facebook Preferred Marketing Developer Opens First International Engineering Hub in Canada

by Techvibes NewsDesk

Boston-headquartered Brand Networks announced this morning that it is expanding operations to Toronto.

As one of just 12 Facebook Strategic Preferred Marketing Developers, Brand Networks delivers scalable, enterprise-ready social applications that harness the power of the entire Facebook Platform to create authentic Fan experiences, inspire brand advocacy, and drive more profitable customer relationships.

Brand Networks’ expansion into the Greater Toronto Area will allow for accelerated hiring and growth in a market ripe with engineering talent. Brand Networks is already working with some of the top brands in Canada, including TSN and American Express.

The Strategic PMD is a designation reserved for a small group of PMDs that are driving outstanding positive impact in our marketing developer ecosystem.

“We’ve always realized that top engineering talent isn’t limited to Silicon Valley,” said Jamie Tedford, CEO of Brand Networks. “We’ve had amazing success building our technology hub in Rochester, New York, by creating a talent pipeline from leading engineering programs at RIT and University of Rochester. As the technology center of Canada’s economy, Toronto is a natural progression for us as it is home to some of the best and brightest software engineers and mobile developers.”

The company currently has 94 employees across offices, and has brought on 14 people to fill newly created positions in the last month alone.
