Abbeal chooses Montréal for its first overseas office
The digital solutions company plans to create about 30 jobs
Abbeal, a consulting company specializing in web and mobile application development recently announced the opening of its Montréal office in the Montréal CoWork coworking space. Over the next two years, the French company plans to expand its Montréal team of 15 by adding close to 30 new hires.
Known for the expertise of its developers, Abbeal provides consulting and training services to a wide range of clients. Abbeal values technical expertise and collaboration, and knew it would find both in Montréal.
The company had been thinking about opening an office in Québec for quite some time. With the support of Montréal International and Investissement Québec International, the company is proceeding with the opening of its first office outside France.
“It’s something we’ve wanted to do since we started out back in 2015,” says Vianney Blanquart, co-founder and CEO of Abbeal Montréal. “Montréal is known for its outward-looking spirit and vibrant tech ecosystem. Opening our first overseas office here was the natural choice for us. We settled on Montréal CoWork because they are committed to fostering collaboration and innovation through diversity.”
Abbeal’s Montréal team is determined to play an active role in enhancing the region’s tech ecosystem. In fact, the company plans to open a new Abbeal Valley chapter in Montréal. The startup incubator helps employees with their projects from inception to implementation by providing guidance every step of the way. Abbeal also provides its members with career development opportunities by giving them access to further training, including in-house mentorship programs, online courses through specialized platforms like Udemy, and certifications in different fields depending on each individual’s area of expertise.
As far as recruitment goes, Abbeal sources its talent both locally and internationally by taking part in IT-oriented recruiting missions organized by Talent Montréal.
Abbeal is a tech company that has evolved into a community where each member is a key player. Abbeal’s commitment to expertise, sharing and perseverance underpins both its approach to work and the way it engages with clients. The company focuses on three core pillars: assistance with corporate digital projects (e.g., web development, DevOps, and architecture), training (in-house and at client sites), and the Abbeal Valley startup studio.
