Software Engineer, Mobile - Remote

Remote, Toronto, ON

Tucows (NASDAQ:TCX, TSX:TC) is possibly the biggest Internet company you’ve never heard of. We started as a simple shareware site in 1993 and have grown into a stable of businesses; mobile, internet and domains.

“TUCOWS - OUR STORY”

We embrace a people-first philosophy that is rooted in respect, trust, and flexibility. We believe that whatever works for our employees is what works best for us. It’s also why the majority of our roles are remote-first, meaning you can work from anywhere you can connect to the internet!

Today, close to a thousand people work in over 16 countries to help us make the Internet better. If this sounds exciting to you, join the herd!

Even though we’re a pretty large company, we strive to limit bureaucracy and get good ideas off the ground quickly. We believe anyone, at any level in the organization, can bring forward ideas, initiatives and creative input.

Hover, our retail domain registration division, is where the Internet’s ideas get domain named. No gimmicks. No up-sells. Just easy domain and email management.

You’ll need to be comfortable working in a small team where you can thrive in a tight, collaborative environment. And you should also be ready and willing to take the ball and run on your own at times.
