Vircom: Software Developers in R&D

Vircom was the first company to specialize in intelligent email protection solutions. Vircom’s solutions are used by Internet Service Providers, corporations and government institutions throughout the world. Modus™ secure email management technology incorporates over 15 years of industry expertise, making it a powerful and driving force in the defense against spam and email-borne fraud.
Located in downtown Montreal, in an open-concept office, Vircom puts huge emphasis on the personal development of its employees. Flex time, snacks and soda, and video games for relaxing are part of the fun, but so is the work. You will get to contribute to real projects, writing or testing real production code that will end up running on our customers servers. You will get to work in a true agile development environment, surrounded by a team of accomplished professionals who will help you learn and hone your skills and will treat you as an equal. In return they will ask that you challenge yourself, commit to improving and focus on getting things done and doing what it takes to exceed expectations. It is no more than we ask from all our employees.
