Maximizer is moving into Concord Pacific’s award-winning One Pacific building in Vancouver’s Yaletown tech-hub. This is our grand return to the downtown core after a six-year hiatus, and a move symbolic of our transformation as a company. Maximizer is moving up in many ways, with 14 staff added in the last six months alone. From today, we’ll be rubbing elbows with software giants at the centre of Vancouver’s burgeoning tech scene. Microsoft Canada’s new office is in plain view — while SAP’s recently renovated lab is just two blocks away.
The new ultra-modern Maximizer HQ at 68 Smithe Street overlooks the urban bustle of the Cambie Street bridge. A bright, spacious interior reflects core company values of open communication and transparency. Teams can freely collaborate thanks to an open floor plan encouraging multi-stakeholder decision-making. And there are amenities galore to keep everyone healthy, fit and creative:
- Modern break room: Lined with stainless steel fridges, the spacious new break room is the perfect place to chill, grab a cup of coffee and indulge in some watercooler talk
- Workout gym: There’s a gym in the building, featuring aerobics machines and weights to blow off steam on a rainy Vancouver afternoon
- Bike locker and showers: Maximizer exhibits its green side in more than just its logo. We’re also cyclist-friendly — with lockers to secure bikes and a shower to rinse off the morning commute
- Floor-to-ceiling whiteboards: Special high-gloss paint transforms walls and pillars into whiteboards. Staff are free to mark them up whenever inspiration strikes.
The new office is also within a five-minute walk of numerous cafes, restaurants, craft breweries and other attractions, including BC Place Stadium. Now that Maximizer’s back in the centre of action, the possibilities are endless.
Maximizer, first established as Richmond Software almost 30 years ago, has evolved with Vancouver. Today, we’re an industry leader in personalized CRM, with an international customer base of 30,000 across 95+ countries.
The global Maximizer team, with offices in Canada, the UK and Australia, includes an eclectic mix of ages and cultures. Fresh-faced millennials work alongside generation X-ers and experienced boomers with well over a decade of service.
The new open-concept space, and how it facilities informal discussion across departments, resonates with our changing values. We’re building a highly personalized corporate culture to match our software. Our work-from-home policy, for example, helps crew members maintain a healthy balance between life’s commitments and their professional ambitions.
Where we offer flexibility, we also deliver stability. Maximizer has a 30-year track record of investing in Metro Vancouver and its workforce. Average staff tenure here is eight years — a fact we’re very proud of. We hire not just for skill, but also for corporate values, like teamwork, passion and lifelong learning.
We look forward to the next 30 years of helping customers around the world grow their business.
