Tucows Job Fair This Saturday!

If you’re a software developer looking for work for a great company with solid people located in a fun neighbourhood, you should drop by the Tucows Job Fair this Saturday. We’re looking for junior, intermediate and senior Java developers, integration engineers and UI developers.

If you’re thinking “Tucows? I thought they were a shareware site!”, you’re partly right — Tucows did start off as a place to download software over a decade ago, but our core business is the provision of wholesale internet services such as domain name registration, email and anti-spam, digital certificates, billing and CRM and blogging and website building tools. These services are distributed through a network of over 6,000 partners, comprised mostly of web hosting companies, internet service providers and internet-related service companies. Our services help them manage their data and simplify their business processes, allowing them to do what they do best: serve their customers.

Developer-wise, we’re primarily a Unix shop. Some of us develop on our favourite Linux distros, while others prefer to use Macs as our machines of choice. Our main back-end stuff is written primarily in Java with some Perl, and some of our newer services such as Blogware and Start are written in Ruby. We’ve got client code written in Perl and PHP, and we’re also looking for people whose Ajax-fu is good, so if you’ve got serious JavaScript chops, we want you too! We’ve got some Windows-based applications too, so if you’ve got some Windows skills, especially when it comes to developing apps that interact with SQL Server, we’d like to talk to you.

We’re located in a large warehouse building in Liberty Village (near the corner of King and Dufferin), a district of warehouses that’s blossoming into a fun neighbourhood where all sorts of “creative class” types — techies, designers, book publishers, architects, TV and radio people, musicians and the guys from Food Jammers — live, work and play. We’ve got some great places to eat and drink right here in the neighbourhood, the attractions of West Queen West are a short walk away, and we’re a short streetcar ride from downtown.

The Tucows Job Fair will take place this Saturday, June 24th, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Tucows offices at 96 Mowat Avenue. If you’d like to know more, check out the Tucows jobs page.
