A new year is upon us and with that comes new opportunity.
Last year was an interesting one. With many salient factors at play, we saw abrupt layoffs follow aggressive hiring; a withering of capital after record-breaking investment levels; and Canadian tech talent halfway stuck in the driver’s seat.
Despite the turbulence, many firms remain actively hiring throughout Canada.
Techtalent.ca decided to kick off the year by highlighting some currently growing companies.
Semaphore is a global provider of software solutions for high-complexity molecular diagnostic laboratories.
“Our clients are pushing the limits of genetic sequencing and other molecular diagnostic technologies to fight cancer, increase diagnostic accuracy, and improve health outcomes for the general population,” the company says.
In addition to an expanding business providing expert software services, Semaphore has embarked on a new phase.
“Our team is building Labbit, the intelligent Laboratory System of the future,” the company says. “This innovative product will help to advance diagnostics and therapies, resulting in improved health outcomes across the globe.”
Semaphore is looking to grow its team “with people who are fascinated by the intersection of software and healthcare and want to be part of a purpose-driven team that is disrupting how science informs human health.”
Microserve is an industry leader in providing technology solutions to public and private sector clients across Western Canada.
Headquartered in Burnaby, with offices in Halifax, Victoria, Calgary, and Edmonton, the company employs over 500 team members.
Founded in 1987, Microserve supports the IT needs of businesses and organizations across industries throughout British Columbia, Alberta and Atlantic Canada, with clients ranging from mid-sized operations to enterprise-level organizations.
The firm is seeking to fill several positions, from Systems Consultant and Software Licensing Specialist to Professional Services Manager and Help Desk Technician.
Alethea is a Calgary-based e-consult and digital diagnostic platform for primary care providers, helping family physicians access faster specialist care and advice.
“Our technology enables clinicians to record, store, and share images using our digital endoscope and platform,” the company explains.
Alethea Artificial Intelligence offers point-of-care diagnostic support.
“Through our platform, an eConsult can be performed with our team of specialists,” says the company. “The referring physician will receive same-day recommendations for treatment and follow-up, without the need to wait months to years for a traditional consultation.”
Alethea is looking for a Customer Success Manager, Account Manager, and more.
Xpert3D Metrology is the Canadian distributor for German giant GOM Metrology.
“Using our optical 3D scanning equipment, manufacturing companies can fully digitize their parts, and therefore capture the part’s dimensions and shape more precisely, efficiently, and accurately than traditional measuring systems,” explains the company.
Headquartered in Burlington, Ontario, Xpert3D Metrology is expanding business into Western Canadian markets this year.
To help push this westward expansion, the company is hiring to fill technical sales positions and more.
