Talkdesk continues to grow in Porto and opens new facilities, providing another 250 high-skilled jobs.

The cloud-based software provider call centre, headquartered in San Francisco, CA moved to UPTEC in Porto in 2017. Two years past, this fast growing business with a "unicorn status", inaugurated its new premises at the Invicta, located at Rua de Anselmo Brancaamp, boosting employment creation.

The dedicated attention to the urban environment, as far as urban transport and related eco-strategies are concerned (eco bus), the level of education (Porto University is included in the major higher education rankings), as well as the innovation ecosystem are main drivers to attract potential investors, both national and international, to the city of Porto.

Talkdesk's CEO, Tiago Paiva, stated "this is key to the company's success" and "we are thrilled to grow in a city as vibrant as Porto regarding the innovation and technological ecosystem".

This investment in Porto results in the creation of 250 direct jobs. Highly trained professionals and engineers in the areas of Information Technology.
