What led you to a career in Ottawa?

Ottawa is one of the fastest growing tech hubs, booming with many companies setting up shop in town. Despite the pandemic, the job market is buzzing with a good mix of startups and multinationals looking for talent. This plus the lower cost of living and housing led us to decide to take root in Ottawa. Both my husband and I have secured new careers in Ottawa and have been working virtually from Toronto. We haven’t relocated yet due to the pandemic but can’t wait to do so as soon as offices re-open.

How did you land this position?

I submitted my interest with Invest Ottawa, and a few weeks later, my profile was shared with Foko Retail, a software startup. After that, the interview process was quick, with constant communication and updates from Invest Ottawa’s talent team. I thank Invest Ottawa for opening the doors to this great opportunity!
