Grammarly sets foot in Van

American tech firm Grammarly Inc. is looking to put its prints on downtown Vancouver.

The company announced Sept. 12  the city would be home to its fourth global office.

Grammarly has secured a 3,000 square-foot site on Water Street in Gastown and is currently in the midst of hiring a dozen new workers to fill jobs in frontend and backend engineering, as well as customer service and social media.

“The location is not a coincidence. It is part of our effort to become part of the tech community,” says co-founder Max Lytvyn.

Lytvyn, who lives in Vancouver, says he has witnessed the number of technology leaders and experienced engineers steadily increasing in the city over the years.

He said Grammarly's main consideration when choosing their next base was access to talent. 

“Many of my friends who are Canadians who are from Vancouver or around the area moved to other places… like Seattle, Bay Area or even Toronto, looking for more interesting companies to work for. I hope that Grammarly can be one of these companies that turns this trend around and brings people back to Vancouver.”
