We’re Left, ranked one of Canada's Top 100 Employers, voted Best Place to Work in BC, and a certified B Corp. We are an innovative technology company committed to developing and using technology as a force for good. We are 16th on the list of Canada's fastest growing tech companies and 101st on the list for North America, working in fields as cutting edge and diverse as mesh networking, blockchain, cryptocurrency, A.I., big data, and predictive analytics. Our top-notch culture and award-winning Community Engagement Program have led us to be recognized by the BC Tech Association as the best in BC for “work, life, and play” and winner of the 2018 BambooHR Hero Award. We like to say, "We're Left...we do things right!"
At the heart of our business we’re building RightMesh, a platform to connect the next billion people without infrastructure using a fully-distributed mobile mesh network for Android, iOS, IoT hardware, and other mobile devices. Our platform will enable affordable, reliable, resilient, and secure access to the internet and connectivity to all users. Since the goal of the platform is to be used far and wide beyond our office walls, our job is to ensure developers find it simple, intuitive, and easy to work with, and that end users have a smooth and autonomous experience wherever possible.
Where does all this cool stuff happen? Our space is a physical representation of our core values. With an open concept built to encourage community, including a large communal kitchen, fully equipped games room and plenty of chill spots to relax, our Lefties feel as comfy here as at home. Family is important to us, and our office provides an inclusive environment for all on our team no matter what age or stage of life. Being in Maple Ridge, we are perfectly located for both city dwellers - only a 40 minute drive from downtown - and for those who prefer the 'burbs.
You have room to breathe out here and can afford to exhale. Not only do you get greater balance in your life, but you get to keep way more of what you earn. The difference is substantial (Hint: for a family of 4, it could be more than $50,000 in your pocket every year!).
