Canadian buildings represent Terminal hiring markets

Canada is a world-renowned market for elite, engineering talent

With rich tech ecosystems in Vancouver, Toronto and Kitchener-Waterloo, Canada is a top global hiring locale for software engineers and developers.

Officially on the map as a technology leader, Canada is a premier global market for hiring skilled and experienced engineers.

Home to some of the world’s best computer science programs and a burgeoning startup scene, the country is a hotspot for tech talent. Its thriving tech ecosystems include Vancouver, which was recently recognized as the top city in North America for tech growth; Toronto, also known as “Silicon Valley North”; and Kitchener-Waterloo, which claims the world’s second-highest density of tech startups.

Geography working in your favor

  • Time zones matter – for meetings, for collaboration, and for moving projects forward. As our Northern neighbors, remote workers in Canada are ideally situated for alignment with US time zones. And when face-to-face interaction is necessary, Terminal’s Canadian hiring locales are short flights from US tech hubs.
