SaaS-based privacy compliance and enterprise analytics startup FileFacets moved into a new office space this summer that gives the firm more room to continue growing.

The new spot in Kanata South is 7,500 square feet, a big upgrade from the company’s 2,250-square-foot old office.

FileFacets, which landed $4 million in financing this past November, is continuing to grow its development and customer success teams in Ottawa and will also expand its European team in 2018, according to Jennifer Nelson, vice-president of sales and marketing.

The startup currently has 26 full-time employees, up from 17 this time last year.

Last year, the company – which makes software that helps clients automatically locate, sort through and categorize reams of business files to make data easier to analyze and manage – scored #NextBigThingOTT honours at the Best Ottawa Business Awards as one of the capital’s companies to watch.
