Saskatoon tech company Vendasta to hire 100 workers after “significant” increase in demand for e-commerce


SASKATOON – Saskatoon Vendasta tech company plans to fill 100 professional sales and support positions. “When the pandemic struck – like everyone else – we were unsure of the future, and suspended our aggressive expansion plans because 40% of the three million businesses we serve were not operating normally” said Brendan King, CEO of Vendasta, in a statement.

“Fortunately for us, our technology is helping businesses become e-commerce compatible and operate remotely. We have seen a significant increase in demand and are looking for more talented Vendastians to help us democratize technology for small businesses. ”

The company is on a three-year growth plan, fueled by a $ 40 million venture capital cycle in 2019, the statement said.

Vendasta’s work to bring the total number of employees to 650 by 2021 was briefly halted as companies around the world assessed the damage from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Job vacancies are added daily to the company’s website.

Premier Scott Moe and Mayor Charlie Clark said the announcement was important to the city and the province.

“This investment is helping to strengthen our economy and make our downtown more resilient, and it’s great that Vendasta is becoming an even more important player in this work,” said Clark.
