Intuit has announced the opening of its new Canadian headquarters in Toronto, part of the company’s global growth plan.
The global financial technology platform that is behind TurboTax, Credit Karma, QuickBooks, and Mailchimp, has opened the new office in the area known as “The Well” at Front St. W. and Spadina Ave. downtown. This marks Intuit’s first global site that implements the company’s workplace of the future design.
“We’ve identified the city of Toronto as a global talent hub and a top growth site for Intuit globally,” says David Marquis, Vice President and Canada Country Manager at Intuit. “We’re thrilled to officially open the doors of this dynamic, new, hybrid space to serve our employees, customers and community. With this newly designed workplace, we’re making a meaningful investment in our growth in Canada, while creating more opportunities for technologists to do the best work of their lives at Intuit.”
The modern, 116,000 square foot office was designed to optimize Intuit’s hybrid and diverse culture, while creating an environment for co-creating, making connections, and innovating. The space includes both quiet and active areas as well as open collaboration spaces. Project rooms are flexible spaces designed for teams that need both individual desks and collaborative furniture settings for longer term projects.
The library is a quiet zone that allows employees to focus without noises or distractions. Additionally, there’s a private space for staff to focus on mental health and spiritual needs. Social hubs, meanwhile, include spaces designed for social connections and wellness, including an outdoor terrace, coffee stations, reflection areas, and an exercise area.
Intuit says Toronto’s rapid growth as a key technology hub has made the city “an attractive home base for innovators globally.” In a recent global report, Toronto was ranked the third-largest tech hub in North America due to its depth of diverse talent.
“Toronto is home to some of the best technology talent in the world,” adds Marquis. “We’re looking to tap into the incredible diverse talent pool in our own backyard. With this move, current and future Canadian employees will accelerate our mission of powering prosperity around the world.”
Intuit serves more than 100 million customers worldwide with its platforms.
