California-based i2c will open a global operations centre in Montréal in early 2016 to support its growth. Specializing in next-generation integrated payments and commerce solutions through its global
cloud-based platform, i2c plans to hire over 50 people within a year. The centre is the fourth international office that i2c has set up in the past 18 months.
“Our new Montréal operations centre will enable us to scale all parts of our business in an ideal location with a world-class, international workforce,” says Amir Wain, founder and CEO of i2c, which is headquartered in Silicon Valley, California.
“i2c is a key player in its field, and I am confident that its Montréal office will see substantial growth in the coming years,” says Pierre Gabriel Côté, President and CEO of Investissement Québec. “The new office in Montréal is the direct result of the work done by our Los Angeles office, which identified i2c and worked with it to showcase Québec’s competitive advantages. I am proud of our team’s efforts on this front, and it’s quite a coup for Montréal.”
Montréal is an ideal location for i2c’s North American operations centre because it is an internationally recognized destination that offers a highly skilled, multilingual talent pool and competitive operating costs. To find the right location, i2c worked closely with Investissement Québec, “an invaluable partner in helping us make the best choices for our business and establish a strong foundation,” Wain adds. “Montréal is a world-class city that offers an outstanding quality of life, and we look forward to playing an important role in Montréal’s vibrant fintech community.”
