Vancouver’s HootSuite, one the world’s most popular social media dashboards, is hiring sales people, developers, and support specialists and they hope to find them at an open house next week.

A shining beacon among our city’s tech and social startup scene, Vancouver’s HootSuite has come a long way over the last 4 years. Growing from a handful of employees, wrangled by founder Ryan Holmes, their roster has topped 100 talented individuals so far in 2012.

They’re looking to double their “flock” by the end of the year and that’s where you could come in.

“Working at HootSuite is a unique joy as we are building a social media dashboard which have a significant impact on business, technology and world affairs… and we manage to have a lot of fun while doing it,” says Dave Olson, VP Community (@DaveOHoots).

“Specifically, developers enjoy writing next-level code which is quickly implemented to a huge audience of eager users, and sales pros like nothing more than having a well-known and loved tool to share with the biggest brands in the world. Anyone who’s looking for a chance to ride this revolutionary wave should certainly come by the open house to chat.”

  1. Thanks for sharing the HootSuite story Rebecca. It’s worth noting that you (and me) were among the very first 100 HootSuite users! We take a load of pride in making these tools and sharing all over the world from our HQ in Railtown.

    It’s an incredible ride and it’s a joy to see the group of newbs join us each week and become superstars in their chosen field.

    <3 to Miss604 from all the Owls.
