Meet the team of Toronto tech leaders you could soon be working with

Nov 26 2019, 9:49 am

Earlier this year, Toronto emerged as the fourth-largest tech market in North America, outpacing the San Francisco Bay area and Washington, DC. And it’s showing no signs of slowing down soon.

Many tech giants are leaving Silicon Valley and expanding here in the city to hire tech talent locally. But that’s not the only place they’re coming from. Full-service digital consultancy firm Appnovation launched in Vancouver in 2007, and now the team of tech experts have opened a brand new office in Toronto — their fourth location in Canada, and fifteenth globally.

With a new office on Richmond Street, the team of creative, experience-led problem solvers are looking for people to help them champion digital innovation while working with some of the world’s biggest brands.

In fact, they’re hiring over 20 diverse positions that need to be filled by the end of the year!

The team/Appnovation

Simply put, Appnovation is a place where innovators come to learn, discover, and grow. The team is made up of bold, creatives from all walks of life, and an open, innovative office culture drives success internally and externally.

If you’re the kind of person who plays by the rules, working here may not be for you because this team strives to do the exact opposite. They see past the mundane and carve out new paths for the work they do.

If you’re up for the challenge of connecting people digitally, collaborating with partners and clients, there could be a position waiting for you at the company. Interested? Amazing. Let us introduce you to the visionaries you could soon be working with.
