On April 19th, BC Tech Jobs, in partnership with the BC Tech Association, was proud to host our biggest Talent Day yet! Over 265 tech professionals working in fields like development, UX/UI design, quality assurance, data analysis, and project management had the chance to meet face-to-face with 25 of the top employers from Vancouver’s thriving tech industry.

Crowd at Tech Talent DayCandidates and companies alike joined together to discuss the growth, innovation, and opportunities in #BCtech. As some of our attendees shared, Talent Day was an “excellent way to connect with top notch companies” and “network with some great companies,” including CounterPath, Hootsuite, Aequilibrium, Traction on Demand, Canada Drives, Bench Accounting, and Arista Networks.

Through a night full of lively conversations, companies like Global Relay, Tasktop, Big Chip, IT Glue, Groundswell Cloud Solutions, and Dynamic Leap were able to share more about the cool things they are working on and what working with their teams is like. We were also joined by wonderful employers like Best Buy Canada, Hyperwallet, BroadbandTV, realtor.com, Beanworks SolutionsBlack Duck Software, CA Technologies, Transoft Solutions, GroupHEALTH Benefit Solutions, Drive Digital, and SYSPRO Canada.

Conversations at Tech Talent DayWith so many great companies and such high quality technical candidates, it’s not hard to see why Vancouver has become such a tech hub. Our featured companies were impressed with the turnout, with one employer sharing that the “quality of candidates [is] higher at each event!”
