Why SimplyPHP?

We look at our development team almost like a hockey team. We try to have the best players possible within our means, and we’re always on the lookout for new players that can contribute to our success. We also make sure that the existing team that has taken us to where we are today is well taken care of. Are you ready? Read on!

Our office is a home away from home. Our location is easily accessible, being right next to the Peel Metro station. Work hours are flexible because we trust our employees and allow them to manage their own time. We have superior health insurance. Our kitchen is fully stocked with plenty of complimentary food (fruits, yogurts, granola bars, different types of bread, cold cuts, tea…) and a high-quality coffee machine that also makes Espresso & Cappuccino. There is a beer tap which is especially great when sitting on the bean bags and gaming on the PS4, throwing some darts or playing some guitar. It’s not unusual to want to stick around or take a longer break and hang out. On the contrary, it’s welcomed!

If you’re a talented developer with decent communication skills in English, you’ll surely fit right in.
