Thinkwrap Commerce is growing, and like the eCommerce industry, there is no sign of slowing down. To meet our demand, we are ramping up our local recruiting efforts and looking to the next generation who will be passionate about embracing the challenges that lie ahead in eCommerce. Fortunately, Thinkwrap is headquartered in Canada’s technology hub – Ottawa - which has often been referred to as ‘Silicon Valley North’ for its concentration of innovative technology companies, it quality local educational institutions, and its abundance of software development & technology professionals.
Our first stop was Carleton University's 2015 Spring Career Fair, hosted on March 4. The Carleton Spring Career Fair is open to all student job-seekers who are looking for job and co-op opportunities. There were approximately 30 employers in attendance, recruiting for a variety of career and co-op opportunities.
Thinkwrap Commerce sent a team of recruiters to meet with eager students specializing in various tech-related disciplines. Armed with a flat screen TV, we proudly presented our Commerce projects to hundreds of students. Our portfolio of work enticed students to learn more, as we featured our work with iconic brands that they already know and love, including: La Maison Simons, Woolrich, Sporting Life, Garage, Dynamite, Cineplex – just to name a few. Snapshots of our clients’ websites, coupled with an explanation of the technical integration happening behind the scenes, allows software-oriented students to appreciate some of the complexity when architecting a successful omni-channel commerce project. User interface (UI) oriented students were also able to better understand the impact that quality design has when selling products online – not just in the look and feel, but in the total user experience and page performance across multiple devices.
In addition, students had the opportunity to meet one-on-one with our practice & team leads to learn more about day-to-day life at Thinkwrap Commerce. The key takeaway: by working at Thinkwrap Commerce, students can really make a name for themselves by developing enterprise-grade eCommerce solutions for top North-American retail and manufacturing brands. There is a sense of pride and accomplishment in seeing your direct work associated with household brands. We wanted the local student community to get a sense of the level of excitement that comes with constant innovation in the eCommerce technology space.
Selected candidates were invited back for an interview day at our software development center and headquarters in Ottawa. We really look forward to welcoming the next generation of eCommerce enthusiasts to our growing team!
