Vancouver’s own Clio has become a company to watch on a global scale.
After raising a Series B investment back in 2012, to the tune of $6 million, they followed up two years later with a sizeable Series C investment of $20 million. Then, in 2019, a monstrous Series D round—valued at more than a quarter-billion dollars— led by TCV and JMI Equity, marking one of the biggest VC investments in a legaltech company ever.
Most recently, Clio announced a new valuation of USD $1.6 billion after raising its Series E at USD $110 million led by funds and accounts advised by T. Rowe Price Associates and also included OMERS Growth Equity, propelling it into “unicorn” status, making history as the first legal practice management unicorn globally.
That growth includes a substantial uptick in headcount. Clio will be directing some of its fresh funding toward bolstering its workforce. The company wants to hire more than 250 employees in 2021, which would increase total employees by roughly 40% in a single year.
If any Vancouver-born company can do it, Clio can.
They have a workplace benefits program that includes in-house performance coaching, course and book reimbursement, minimum four-week vacation, and customizable extended health benefits.
Clio also has an award-winning company culture that thrives on the belief that better solutions are built by people who bring a variety of perspectives, share different skills and come from a range of backgrounds and experiences.
They operate on a digital-first approach to their mindset and infrastructure–meaning you can choose to work from home, or one of their beautifully designed offices in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary or Dublin, when they reopen.
