Qumulo today announced the opening of a new office in Vancouver, British Columbia, to fuel the company’s growing engineering innovation and accelerate the adoption for its hybrid storage solutions. This announcement follows last week’s news that the company opened an office in Minneapolis to support its expanding digital marketing team.
“At Qumulo, our singular focus is on building incredible technology that our customers love, and our expanding team in Vancouver will be key in helping us to accomplish that,” said Karim Fanous, vice president of engineering at Qumulo. “British Columbia has been recognized as a global leader in technology talent, and the investments we are making today and in the future will ensure we continue our emphasis on technology innovation and execution.”
“Vancouver is a robust and thriving technology community and has a tremendous technical talent pool building some of the most advanced computing systems on the planet,” said Moe Kermani, managing partner at Vanedge Capital. “Qumulo’s expansion here will fuel hybrid cloud technology innovation within a technology community that is at the forefront of innovation.”
British Columbia’s technology economy recently received an “A” grade in KPMG’s British Columbia Technology Report Card (Tech Report Card). According to the BC Tech Association, “The report rates the tech sector’s performance in the provincial and global economies, as well as its potential to grow.”
“BC’s tech sector is responsible for 7% of the province’s economy and is ranked first amongst the province’s various industries in terms of growth,” according to the association.
Qumulo has seen significant corporate momentum over the past several months, underscoring its overall business proposition and technical innovation. The company recently appointed Molly Presley as director of product marketing and Robyn Singh as vice president of people. In October 2018, the company announced its positioning by Gartner, Inc. in the “Leaders” quadrant of the “2018 Magic Quadrant for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage”.1 As one of Seattle’s fastest-growing private companies, Qumulo announced $93 million in Series D funding last year. The company has more than 200 employees and serves hundreds of enterprise customers.
