Fun and learning is part of the job! We encourage innovation and hack every quarter. Pick your topic of interest, partner with developers, choose a technology, and go! Additionally, once a year we hack with the entire R&D as part of a global event. Learn to use the latest open source components or industry-standard protocols. While we contribute to specific open source projects, we’ve opened source our own components as a company. Cool domain areas that would cross your learning path are cloud computing, cloud containerized platforms, cryptography, security, and identity protocols (OAuth auth2 and OpenID Connect) to name a few.

Our team brings Agile to a new level. Every 10 weeks we host a developer’s market place, share the roadmap, and offer team members to show their interest. The playfield suddenly becomes bigger than your immediate team and you can pursue other interests and/or technologies!  Additionally, the Ottawa R&D lab offers ample of opportunities to develop your career.
