The Team

Our Team

Our team is our most valuable asset!! We have a great track record with U Waterloo recruiting – being one of the longest running U Waterloo grad & co-op recruiters in existence (since 1983). We take pride in offering real world challenges to our recruits that allow them to grow and flourish as accomplished software engineers. Our lead engineers are all U Waterloo graduates who have come as co-ops and stayed to develop their careers. Our goal is to build a world class team of software engineers - engineers who want to be creative; who don’t just “sling code” but actually tackle the toughest problems & in the process, build the products that others haven’t thought of yet.
