My Experience

Working at Hootsuite and being part of the Amplify team was a very amazing experience for me. It was my first time in BC, and I had a blast exploring and working in Vancouver. The company culture is fantastic, and I was happy to be such a big part of the development work for Amplify!

I enjoyed deploying changes live to production in the very first week, and continuing to see my work used by customers throughout my entire co-op term. I learned a lot, had fun, and built lifelong connections with some very talented and friendly people.
