Canadian Companies

I currently live in New York City and work as a senior programmer in the financial sector. I’m considering a move to Canada. Toronto, to be precise.

In your opinion, what are some of the cool, interesting or exciting companies to work for in Toronto?

At this point, I have very few restrictions on the type of company. I’m building my “long list” and will prune later. I’ll take names of startups, established companies, large or small, in various industries (Internet, biotech, telecommunications, finance) whatever…

Ok. It was never wrong. It's just that the email address edit box in this forum has a short hight, which causes the "g" in my gmail address to look like a "q".

The two big job boards for Toronto may be monster.ca and workopolis.com

You're asking the wrong question. This forum can do much better than that. Ask us ehat is the best strategy to move from NY to Totonto, horror histories, advice, and give more info about you. If you have family or not, why Totonto, which development you do, et al.

Hi,

When searching for a job in Toronto, make sure you include surrounding towns and cities (part of the GTA- Greater Toronto Area), e.g. Markham, which has loads of tech companies.

When searching on a job board such as Workopolis or Monster.ca a search for "Toronto" should yield results from the entire area.

You may also want to take into consideration where you would live as well, namely, how big of a commute will you have.

check out tor.jobs as well.  despite the name, its mostly programming jobs.

for someone of your background, i'd highly recommend goin' with a bunch of agencies.  the exchange rate and the different supply/demand scale for skills here will make it difficult for you to negotiate a fair salary on your own...
