Freelancer.com opens Vancouver Engineering Lab

VANCOUVER, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Freelancer.com today officially opened the doors of its Vancouver office, which will support its rapid growth locally and across the globe.

Located downtown in the Vancouver Centre (Scotia Tower) at 650 West Georgia, the opening of the Vancouver engineering lab will become a key driver in Freelancer's global growth strategy. The company is planning to hire in the short term 20 staff in its devops and software engineering teams. In addition, a number of key hires will be made in engineering management, regional communications, public relations and support.

Freelancer.com is the world's largest online freelancing marketplace with over 10.4 million professionals from 234 countries, regions and territories. In addition, over 5.5 million projects have been posted to date across over 650 areas of work including web design, graphic design, copywriting through to fields as esoteric as astrophysics, aerospace engineering, manufacturing and biotechnology. Freelancer currently employs over 350 staff globally, with offices in Sydney, London, Manila, Buenos Aires and Jakarta. In November 2013, Freelancer Limited spectacularly listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX: FLN), in the biggest opening ever for an IPO on that exchange (up 400%).

Freelancer has long recognized Canada as a key market. In 2012, Freelancer acquired Scriptlance, a Canadian startup that achieved considerable success in the online outsourcing and crowdsourcing space. Scriptlance was started by Canadian entrepreneur Rene Trescases who built the platform into the largest Canadian freelance outsourcing marketplace, and the 5th largest globally at the time.

Flying into Vancouver to open the office, Freelancer.com Chief Executive Matt Barrie said, "Vancouver is a fantastic place to open our first office in North America. The city is rapidly becoming a booming tech hub, attracting some of the best companies in Canada. There is an amazingly vibrant startup ecosystem, and it's a community we are excited to now be a part of."

"The technical talent in Vancouver is some of the best in the world and we are looking forward to welcoming them to our global team. We are hiring rapidly and we are here to stay."
