Hello from Pressly!

Our team is awesome, talented—and has a ton of fun! Fair warning: If you're thinking about joining us, you'd better be good at ping pong!

A bit about us…

Like all good startups, Pressly began four years ago in a tiny space with just two people: Jeff Brenner and Peter Kieltyka. They had a vision of a world where every person, team, business or community could engage around the things that really matter to them, easily and beautifully, without technology getting in the way. And so they created it.

Fast forward to today. The team has grown, and so has our wonderful customer base. We now proudly support hundreds of customers, from early-stage startups to Fortune 100 companies.

Made with love
from Toronto.

Yes, we had a mayor that smoked crack. And technically, Justin Bieber is from our burb. But Toronto has been rated the #1 most livable city in the world by Metropolis magazine, and more importantly, the tech-startup community in Toronto is booming. The city ranks as the 8th most active startup community in the world, and we feel lucky to be surrounded by all these awesome founders and ground-breaking products. It's really cold in the winter, but if you're ever around, come say hi at 49 Fraser Avenue!
