Local app company bought by Apple, plans to stay in Vancouver

A Vancouver company called Buddybuild just announced that they’ve been acquired by Apple.

You might not have heard of them, but they help developers build iOS and Android apps easier and faster, and are apparently “a leader in continuous integration and delivery for mobile applications.” According to Techcrunch, the 40-or-so employees will now be working as part of Apple’s Xcode engineering group.

But the best news in this – beyond the great success story of a 2015 company being scooped up by a tech giant – is the fact that they’re staying put in Vancouver.

According to a post on their website, they’ve “always been proud to be a Canadian company, so we’re also pleased that we will be staying right here in Vancouver — a hotbed of developer and engineering talent”.

There’s been no word on whether or not the company will be doing more hiring but we’ll keep you updated.
