    I have been working at Pure Technologies full-time


    Lots of travel, lots of opportunity to take on new roles and large amounts of responsibility early on. Great culture, with a team-first approach, and plenty of sources for advice and assistance. Managers and higher-ups have grown with the company as well, so there is a great continuity of knowledge and experience. As the company grows, change in roles and opportunities is a constant. Multiple office locations around North America and the globe, and positive attitudes and hard-working effort to be found in each one.


    As the company continues to expand, there are growing pains. Role definition, and appropriate salaries based on responsibilities, is currently lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Do not lose sight of who is out executing the business, and consider their needs and wants as the business grows!

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Pure Technologies (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in June 2015.


    The interviewer started by taking 5-10 minutes to give a general overview of the job position, its expectations and some of the specifics of the technologies involved with it. He had a list of 10-15 questions which were all pretty standard such as what do you think makes you an excellent candidate for this position.
