On the heels of their announcement of opening of a new office in Vancouver, Grammarly, the company behind the AI-powered digital writing assistant used by more than 20 million people daily, today announced it has received $90 million in its latest round of funding.
CEO Brad Hoover said the fresh capital, which brings Grammarly’s total raised to date to roughly $200 million, will be used to advance its technology to build a full-fledged communications assistant.
Hoover also said it’ll enable Grammarly to expand the size of its workforce globally, which now numbers north of 200 employees.
10 year-old Grammarly is headquartered in San Francisco and has offices in Kiev and New York City. The Vancouver office will be Grammarly’s fourth and will be dedicated to expanding Grammarly’s talented team.
Grammarly co-founder Max Lytvyn calls Vancouver home and shared his excitement in a blog post.
“Living in Vancouver while developing a company in multiple locations around the world has been a pleasure,” says Lytvyn. “I’ve seen Vancouver’s technology scene develop at an inspiring pace and am delighted to have the opportunity to expand our team in this amazing city.”
Grammarly is excited by the prospect of exploring great opportunities locally to continue building Grammarly’s culture and to add key new hires across a variety of roles.
“Vancouver is home to many innovative companies, and today we’re thrilled to officially add Grammarly to the list,” says Lytvyn.
