We are excited to announce some great news: our team has moved to a new office in downtown Vancouver. Now that we are all settled in, we thought we’d give you a little tour and tell you a bit about our new space.
The new Digi117 office is located in the Bentall III Tower in the heart of Vancouver featuring a unique contemporary design with the abundance of natural light. We were lucky to join the coworking space offered by WeWork, designed with great care for productivity and comfort. We are excited about being more accessible to our customers and we love the lively business dynamics and atmosphere of collaboration and friendliness of the new office. Lots of great venues, the waterfront, and multiple restaurants in walking proximity seem like a great bonus as well.
While we were happy with our previous office location, there were a few motivating factors that prompted the move:
1. Location and Easy Access
Being a Vancouver-based provider of custom software development solutions and an IT-recruiting company at the same time, we wanted to be a part of the progressive downtown community, while being in the proximity of our customers and partners.
As our team continued to grow, we needed a convenient place where we can have room to be more efficient both working with our customers and communicating within the team. Luckily, we were able to join the WeWork Burrard Station coworking space which in addition to workstations offers beautifully designed common areas, comfortable meeting spaces, workshops and networking events, and dedicated front-desk support. It’s truly a lifestyle hub! Now we have a private office with glass walls as our main workspace and we can also use Hot Desks in the common areas which are perfect for collaborations and building connections with the community.
One the best things about working in downtown is the amount of networking events and opportunities where you can meet like-minded people. Central location gives us more exposure to other local organizations and businesses, while we can build connections and develop professional relationships with our clients and partners without wasting time on the commute. As Digi117 is a member of the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade and BC Tech Association, we also have the opportunity to network more often with other members of these organizations.
The overall innovative and dynamic energy of the area keeps us always in the progressive state of mind making sure we are using the cutting-edge software development technologies and are offering the best recruiting services to our customers.
Here is our main working space:
This is our reception desk. Each of us has an access to a special WeWork app on our phones that we can use to text to the front-desk in case we need anything.
The conference and meeting spaces are not only comfortable for gatherings and discussions but also delightful to be in.
The common areas are stylish and perfect for creative meetings and connecting with local businesses. You can even play chess during your lunch break here!
We hope you liked this small office tour! We would love to meet you in person and show you around.
Feel free to stop by and say hello!
