Company is looking to expand Canadian branch to 60 employees over the next six months
San Francisco-based mobile firm TinyCo has opened a new $18m studio in Vancouver.
The Tiny Monsters and Tiny Village developer plans fill the new office with 60 employees over the next six months, and is currently hiring artists, engineers and designers.
The studio’s CEO Suli Ali said it had made the decision to expand to the region because it was not as competitive as Montreal and it was an ideal place to keep easy communication with the San Francisco branch.
Speaking to ME sister title, Develop, Suli said: “Vancouver is a bourgeoning game development community with a lot of great creative in the mobile space.”
“It's not as competitive as Montreal, and it will be easy for everyone to communicate on the same time zone. We will have SF based resources at the studio frequently and its a very easy flight. It will be easier for us to relocate talent to Vancouver from around the world.”
