DiscoverOrg to double staff, adding 150 jobs

"A company that arrived in Vancouver six years ago as a small startup with an obscure product is making a big imprint on the city’s downtown with its startling growth.

DiscoverOrg, which builds and maintains databases of marketing intelligence aimed at IT vendors and staffing agencies, said Thursday that it intends to more than double its staff size within six months, adding 150 new employees to its downtown headquarters in the 805 Broadway building. The company only recently relocated its 140 employees, including 100 research analysts, to the downtown office from east Vancouver to accommodate its growth.

The planned expansion puts the company well ahead of the estimate of 170 employees at year’s end that co-founder and CEO Henry Schuck offered just three months ago."
