Canadian e-commerce giant Shopify is on a hiring spree and planning on expanding its offices to make space for hundreds of new employees.

In Montreal, the company aims to nearly double the workforce with 120 new employees in the next few years to add its existing headcount of 150. But those people will have a roomy office space as Shopify is expanding its Montreal footprint to accommodate as many as 450 people.

If it seems like a strange decision to build office space for nearly double the number of planned employees, but it makes sense in light of Shopify’s rapid expansion.

As of the fourth quarter of 2017, the company had nearly 3,000 employees, a 50 per cent increase over 2016.

Shopify provides a platform for online merchants which allows for payment processing, inventory management, online marketing and shipping support. Currently more than 600,000 merchants use the Shopify system.
