Typically 3-4 weeks. It depends on availability (yours and ours). We like to move as quickly as possible, and some people have received an offer within two weeks of their intro call. We’ve also seen it take up to a month if a candidate or member of our team has limited availability, but that’s not our goal.
Our policy is evolving, and will likely continue to change as we figure out what works best for our team. We currently have some employees that work 100% remotely (including most of our United States employees) and some that go into the Toronto office regularly. We’ve found that some roles are much easier to do remotely than others; for example, several of our mechanical and electrical engineers prefer working in the office over working from home. We’re quite flexible, and we consider what’s best for each person and position on a case-by-case basis.
We have employees in both the United States and Canada. Our Canada headquarters is located in Toronto, and our U.S. office is in Boston. Some of our employees are in other locations and work fully remotely.
We do! If you’d like to move closer to one of our offices, we offer $5,000 to help cover your costs.
We don’t require most of our employees to travel. However, as a distributed team, we do like to get everyone together when we can - so we will offer option travel opportunities to our headquarters in Toronto and Boston.
Absolutely! We’d be happy to introduce you.
We use Slack for day-to-day communications, as well as Google Meets and Zoom for video calls and Gmail for email. We also use Confluence and Jira to collaborate on projects and documentation!
We provide you with a laptop and other necessary accessories (second monitor, wireless keyboard, etc). If you're not located near our Toronto office, we'll ship everything to you before your first day!
Our platform and the dev environment are Linux-based.
Our platform and dev environment is designed to be modular and web-based; allowing developers to take advantage of offline work and drive our platform remotely.
Yes! We have several patent applications. We work with one of the most innovative and capable patent lawyers in the US. We regularly review our patent strategy to ensure that we are protected while investing our money wisely.
Yes. We strongly believe in getting the technology right before we start productizing anything. Our technology is at the core of our business right now. We have set a very high bar for ourselves, and we intend to reach it before we move on to anything else.
Yes. In order to stay competitive, we work with international companies that satisfy our needs. We take these relationships seriously and are continuously building our network.
The majority of our design work is done in-house. Nevertheless, we are still growing our internal resources and recognize when the challenges become too complex or time-consuming for our staff. As such, we facilitate an environment where we are not afraid to admit our limitations and contract out focused problems to experts in the field.
Yes, we have a few separate labs dedicated to ME / EE / NMR. The people on our teams have a lot of hands-on experience and are not afraid to get scrappy when things need to get done!
We're open to it! We have a strong preference for sponsoring in Canada (rather than the United States) because the process tends to be much easier.
