Our Company Careers in Web Application Development
A Great Company…
Interprise Software is a refreshing alternative to other technology companies, which is why those who make the cut tend to stick around. In fact, the members of our team have been here for over 13 years, on average.
- Great Environment – open concept office in the country and casual dress code
- Great Management – if you have a better way, then we want to know about it
- Great Track Record – over 17 years of Internet software development history
- Great Opportunity – all the excitement of a startup, as we expand in both US and Canada
We are not just interested in hiring the best people to work for us, but also in being the best company to work for.
…with Great Jobs
We provide all our employees with a competitive salary, continuing education, performance bonuses, paid holidays, paid vacation, health benefits, drinks and snacks, books and resources, leading-edge equipment, a reliable network, a fast Internet connection, a comfortable work space... and anything else you need to be the best!
- Great Hardware – quad-core machines with dual LCDs are standard issue
- Great Technology – FOSS, Java, Web 2.0, Adobe
- Great Training – professional development days to learn what YOU want
- Great Projects – ability to work on lots of diverse, cutting-edge projects
- Great Responsibility – each employee is a big part of a small team
…that’s Family Friendly!
Interprise Software is the family-friendly e-commerce website development company. We only hire the best people and then give them everything they need to achieve remarkable results. That does not include free breakfasts and dinners, because you should not be at work that long. It does not include weekly social events, because that would really cut into family time. What it does include is bi-weekly lunch meetings, monthly professional development (PD) days, occasional team building events, and annual family parties.
Not convinced? Read these quotes from former employees of a large IT firm with all the perks.
Note: these are actual quotes, but the company names have been changed to "BigTech." [Close]
I left BigTech after only 5 months. As soon as I got inside, I had the feeling of being swallowed by a giant Borg.
I spent all of 11 days working at BigTech before I returned to my previous (now current) company.
BigTech is the car with all the sexy features but very little of what really matters. The amenities, extra-curricular(s) and conversation piece of "working for BigTech" is what keeps most working at BigTech.
There were only two days of my six months there that I didn't dread going to work.
But along with the food came the BigTech lifestyle: if you were staying for dinner, it better be because you were working afterwards. It was frowned upon to leave right after dinner... My experience was that the people who spent all their time at BigTech were the ones that ended up on the sexier projects or in charge of things.
I treasure the time I had there, but I also left exhausted and processing a lot of stress.
I feel sad about my decision on choosing BigTech over Company B. Small pay, no work = no team spirit, no hike in 12 months, no balance between family life and work are few things which motivated my move out.
First, I was really disappointed with the salary that BigTech offered... I shouldn't have accepted such a low offer... BigTech should know that good engineers are in high demand... So after only 3 months at BigTech, I was aggressively recruited by another company that offered 2x my base salary (which has been increased repeatedly since then).
But as nice as it is having a cushy 401K and unlimited sick days, I was not willing to sacrifice my personal happiness and career fulfillment, not even for all the free kombucha I could drink.
People are generally in the building between 10am and about 6pm every day, but nearly everyone is on e-mail 24/7 and most people spend most of their evenings working from home.
BigTech believes that developers are, with few exceptions, interchangeable parts. This philosophy shows through in their office arrangements which ... are all over the map.
BigTech doesn't place any value on previous industry experience. It puts tremendous value on degrees, especially Stanford ones.
That single benefit gets people to work earlier, because hot breakfast is served only until 8:30. And since dinner isn't served until 6:00 or 6:30, the people with a home-life tend to skip it.

So, What’s the Catch?
You have to be the best! Interprise Software is a small company with big clients, such as Canada's largest photographic buying group with over 200 retail stores across Canada. That means that every person on our team plays a critical role.
If you like being a tiny part of a big company, then Interprise Software is not for you. If you thrive under lots of levels of management and politics, then please look elsewhere. If you are the type of person who does not have any particular area of expertise and just likes to fly under the radar, then you've come to the wrong place.
However, if you have the passion and skills to be one of the best in high-tech and don’t want to give up your life, then we should talk.
Interprise Software is...
Having been through the dot-com boom/bust, Interprise Software is not one of those volatile Internet start-ups.
We make sensible decisions that maximize profits, such as using great open source technologies.
We don't believe in politics – if you have a better way of doing something, then we want to know about it.
Interprise Software exists to serve our employees and investors, because it's all about people...
Interprise People are...
Interprise people are a much bigger asset than anything found on our balance sheet.
- The Best
Each member of our team is passionate about being the best in their area of expertise.
Interprise people are committed to the company and willing to make personal sacrifices when necessary.
Machines work around the clock, but we all have families and personal lives that are just as important.
