Connected is a Canadian company built on the belief that a new category of professional services firm was needed in the modern era to help ambitious companies build impactful software-powered products.
We spoke with Connected ahead of their participation in this week’s Tech Talent Canada Job Fair, a prime opportunity for Canadians to connect with some of the country’s hottest hiring startups and forge epic careers.
Building the Right Thing
Founded in 2014, Connected is not a dev shop or a design agency or a strategic consultancy. Rather the company operates as a “uniquely integrated product development firm.”
“ We work cross-functionally within our teams of agile engineers, human-centered designers, and product strategists through our unified Product-Thinking approach from early product discovery all the way through to the tireless sprints of product delivery,” Connected informed Tech Talent Canada.
Connected aims to solves for feasibility, usability, desirability, and viability together, the company explains—a firm that “helps its clients build right, and build the right thing. ”
The firm also looks to build the right careers for employees. They’re “all about sharing our knowledge, honing our skills, and embracing curiosity.”

“As a member of our team, you’ll be exposed to the entire product lifecycle, from idea generation, design, prototyping, planning, execution, and ultimately shipping the final product to market,” Connected told Tech Talent.
The firm is both industry- and technology-agnostic, and “we are privileged to work on a wide range of products with a number of globally recognized brands.”
In addition to fulfilling roles and meaningful products, the company offers a laundry list of perks. These include RRSP matching, extended health benefits, and annual credits for conferences, workshops, gym memberships—and much more.
“We are also proud to have been named one of Canada’s Top Small and Medium Employers and one of LinkedIn’s Top Startups,” Connected noted. The company has also received recognition for its innovative workplace.
