“Coveo is looking for top talent in order to pursue its growth, and the Eastern Townships region, along with its universities, has always been fertile ground for finding talent. We already employ about fifty Université de Sherbrooke graduates, and with the help of Sherbrooke Innopole, we have found the perfect opportunity to consolidate our presence in the region and to play an active role in developing the local tech scene”, said Marc-Antoine Veilleux, director of research and development, in charge of Coveo’s office in Sherbrooke.
“The opening of offices in Sherbrooke by Coveo sends a very positive message regarding the dynamic nature of the information technology and artificial intelligence sectors in particular.

Innovation is at the heart of Coveo’s activities, a company which operates in a business sector of the future, two factors that will help attract the up and coming new generation of replacement workers”, highlighted Marc-Henri Faure, director of business services at the key Information Technologies division at Sherbrooke Innopole.
