Work at vWork

vWork are changing the way businesses manage mobile workforces. Check out our current openings...

Who We Are

We design, build, test, host, sell, and support one SaaS product, vWork. This consists of a RESTful API, and a web app, as well as native mobile apps for Android and iOS. Everything is done in house, nothing is outsourced to third party developers. (Although we do rely on a range of 3rd party services where we can.)

The technologies we use and love include: Ruby, Rails, Javascript, CSS3, React, Java, Postgres, Cassandra, Chef, Jenkins, Google Maps, xCode, New Relic, etc…

We operate a continuous integration environment with automated unit tests and integrations tests using Jenkins. All of our code is version controlled using GitHub. All of our infrastructure is code driven using Chef and Cloud Formation. All of our production environments are hosted at AWS.

We are not coders for hire, our sole focus is on improving vWork every day and selling it around the world. We set our own roadmap based on customer feedback and market analysis.

We are a small team (18), based in Newmarket. It's a casual atmosphere and relatively flat structure. Friday afternoons generally involve a BBQ, a few beers and brainstorming on how to improve the product.

Working hours are fairly flexible, but we have a daily standup at 10am that is set in stone. We are looking for a full time, permanent staff member. Remote working is not an option for us.

We are not a startup looking for investment to survive, we have been around for 8 years and are a growing, sustainable company. (Although we do try and retain the fast moving energy of our Agile startup roots.)
