It’s been a long time coming, but members of the Montreal team are finally settled into their new home.

We were very well taken care of in our temporary set up at WeWork in Place Ville Marie. But, as you know, even after a week on an all-inclusive vacation, nothing quite compares to the feeling of being home. For the Montreal team, our new office in the historic Windsor Station is just that – home. It is infused with the spirit of the team and felt like home from the moments the doors opened. Every piece of artwork in and around the office was designed by our talented design team. Every meeting room was named after a meaningful place and the layout has been designed to foster the cohesive team-building atmosphere Coveo is known for. Not only is it home for Coveo’s Montreal team,  it is a convenient and welcoming home away from home for our Quebec City and remote colleagues.

To celebrate our arrival, we invited some of Montreal’s most innovative thought leaders, our trusted partners and our valued clients for a night of cocktails and entertainment at our new office. Coveo Chairman and CEO, Louis Tetu, took the stage to announce some impressive milestones. We welcomed the newest member of our Board of Directors, JP Chauvet, President of Lightspeed. We announced the creation 25 high-value jobs in Montreal so far, and the 30 others we will be looking to fill by the end of the year, as well as several others around the globe. And, on the day of the launch we were featured on Forbes among the top 10 AI Technologies. Needless to say, it was a good day!

As a serial networker, I can say with confidence that this was not your typical launch event. In most cases, people come for the food and open bar and plan their great escape. That was not the case at our event. Everyone was engaged and networking from start to finish. While the food and drinks were great, the mix of professionals in attendance is what set this event apart. Having a magician early in the night to break the ice definitely got conversation flowing.

The innovation district is designed to be a unifying force and that was truly exhibited at our launch party. It was incredible to see so much passion, experience and support under one roof. To see the highlights of the evening, watch our video.

We are humbled and grateful for all the support we received and continue to receive as we grow. On behalf of the entire Coveo team, thank you to everyone who made the night a success!

To be part of this incredible team and our new beginning in Montreal, check out our open positions and join the #CoveoLife. We are on a roll and show no sign of slowing down! It’s great to be us!
