A warm welcome to our Braga team!
Initially the new office, located on the Rua Cidade do Porto, will focus on hiring local software engineers and product managers to work on Issuu’s award-winning content publishing and marketing SaaS platform.
“Over the past year, Issuu has seen unprecedented growth as digital content fuels the creator economy,” said Joe Hyrkin, chief executive officer at Issuu. “Braga is the ideal location to hire technical talent, especially given the efforts by Mayor Ricardo Rio over the last decade to build a startup ecosystem and create relationships between companies, local government, and the innovation-driven University of Minho.”
Continued Hyrkin, “This new team will collaborate closely with our Copenhagen and Berlin offices as we continue to develop Issuu as a one-stop destination for creators to publish and share content online. We’re excited to open this new office and look forward to becoming part of the local tech community.”
"I was excited when I first heard Issuu was coming to Braga. In professional and academic circles, downloading PDFs has given way to links on Issuu, and I've come across the company many times," said Ricardo Rio, mayor of Braga. "Our investments in Startup Braga and Invest Braga are rapidly growing our tech and startup ecosystem, and we're thrilled to welcome an innovative company like Issuu."
