Support for job seekers

No visa, no job, no health coverage - not as much of a problem as you may think. At this point, it’s no surprise that we’re living in uncertain and unprecedented times. The uncertainty you’re feeling, we’re all feeling it too - it’s positively palpable. However, hope is not lost. The “new normal” may still be settling in, but we’ve got lots of ideas on what you can do should you be faced with a cancelled H1B visa or other as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Canada is home to one of the world’s fastest-growing and highly-competitive tech ecosystems. Our community of tech is collaborative by nature and always on the lookout for the best-of-the-best to join its ranks. Calling all talented product managers, software engineers and developers - we want you. And the best part of this “new normal”? You won’t even have to move (but you’ll want to, because well, Canada is awesome). 

Interested? You should be. Reach out and we’ll help you find the job of your dreams - in the land of the true north, strong and free.
