Inside Booking.com’s Swanky New Toronto Office

Looking for a job? You might want to consider sending your resume over to Booking.com – they’ve just opened their first Canadian office, right here in the heart of Toronto. The office is the fourth in North America, bringing Booking.com’s total to sixteen offices across the globe. For the Toronto locale, they plan on recruiting 200+ employees by the end of the year, with a goal of hiring up to 600 within the next four to five years.

 

Located just north of University and Wellington, the space spans over three floors, a total of 53,355-square-feet and was designed by global architecture, design, and planning firm Gensler. Each floor features a different colour theme to easily differentiate where you are. Employees are seated in a large open space format, with adjustable desks for every individual. Also on each floor are special rooms designated for personal calls and conference meetings, which feature photos from across the globe, taken by Booking.com employees.

The recreation area is where employees gather to eat. The space is filled to the brim with tables and booths. For those keen on bringing their meals from home, Booking.com’s kitchen features a large wall of microwaves and fridges, plus a prep area. There’s also a cafe/canteen where staff can purchase snacks (think every chocolate bar under the sun) and healthy meal options, which are subsidized. Also in the office is a lounge with massage chairs – perfect for de-stressing, a game room and bicycle storage.
