Another unicorn in Buffalo: worth $1.25B after latest funding round

Tackle has 17 employees in Western New York in a variety of different functions, including sales, customer success, finance and human resources. While the company prioritizes talent over location in all of its hires, Jahnke said, the employee clusters have happened naturally as Tackle has formed a brand in the marketplace.

“We plan to double in size over the next year,” he said. “That’s a lot of people, and there is an opportunity for Western New York to be a big part of that.”
