You can find all of our developers, designers and product managers working away at the Riverside building in Ottawa. Our team is organized into sub-teams who own different parts of the product and work like mini "startups." Together, they make the magic happen; continuously shipping awesome features to our clients.

Our agile space and tools allow us to collaborate and explore ideas easily. Teams use whiteboard walls, dedicated team working rooms and our state-of-the-art design studio to get things done. However, our "secret sauce" really lies in our awesome people and culture. We enjoy building a quality product, crafting an amazing user experience, and having lots of fun in the process.

Responsibilities:

  • Design and maintain new features.
  • Demonstrate a clear pride of ownership.
  • Collaborate with others.
  • Actively participate in the Agile development process.
  • Propose new ideas.
  • Be relentless on quality.
  • Maintain a fun, inclusive and creative work environment.
