Last fall Calgary Economic Development (CED) launched a campaign to attract tech talent to the prairie city.
To inspire tech professionals to consider Calgary as a place to do meaningful work and have an unmatched quality of life, Live Tech. Love Life drew a parallel between working in tech and Calgary’s lifestyle.
With more than 2,000 open tech jobs in Calgary, growing the tech community is a need that has been reinforced by local companies of all sizes – they require the right talent to grow their businesses.
With the COVID-19 crisis putting thousands of tech professionals out of work in Toronto and Vancouver, Calgary has an opportunity to throw a lifeline to those that are willing to relocate and start fresh in a new city.
Calgary’s Tech West Collective is a group of companies who’s goal is to make Alberta an internationally recognized tech powerhouse and they’re making the most out of the opportunity.
This week Tech West Collective hosted a online panel discussion highlighting six companies in Calgary that are hiring for over 200 roles over the next 18 months.
Check out their career opportunities on the Tech Talent Canada job board.
