Shamayne Zindoga - Administrative Assistant

"Global Relay is a great company to work for because of the diversity, the encouragement one receives in the workplace and the corporate culture! There are so many people from all walks of life which not only makes the workplace a jiving environment that enables a unique corporate identity but also a nurturing environment that enables one to challenge oneself and grow. The company embodies life lessons and instructs those who work there with the knowledge needed to get to the next step on the office ladder. And because of this, each of us experiences a rewarding work-life balance!

No one day is the same and when you come in everyday, you just know not to expect the “norm” in this corporate office. You think and work outside the box and you’re always on the go which is great for a young mind that is absorbing anything and everything in the work environment. My time with Global Relay has been challenging yet exhilarating! It has been a great experience working with this company because I have learned a lot during my time here and continue to learn every day. My days are filled with positive energy and inspiring thoughts as I continue to learn the business of the company and communicate with colleagues and clients."

Alex Xie - QA Analyst

"Over my past 3 years at Global relay, the company has grown so much. From floor space to the number of employees to the perks of a full-service café and lounge, it has become a wonderful and truly unique work environment.

With the help of great management and an awesome HR team, the culture of Global Relay is something I’m proud to be a part of. The work is challenging, everyone works (and plays) hard, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!"

Guy Trotter - Product Manager

"Global Relay's products address a critical need for society - providing the tools to ensure that financial firms maintain compliance under the regulatory requirements that keep our financial systems anchored.

As a product manager at Global Relay, I work with our customers, executives, sales and development teams to define and build products that use the latest mobile, cloud and web technologies that enable our customers to exchange information while being legally compliant. Global Relay is a great place to be a product manager; we work in an Agile environment, so it's easy to respond to our customers’ needs quickly. All of our development happens in our Gastown (Vancouver) location, so we can meet and make decisions at a moment’s notice. Executive management is accessible and enthusiastic and our development & deployment teams are best-in-class and highly knowledgeable.

It's great to work for a highly community-oriented company: ensuring that our state-of-the-art data center uses evaporative cooling to minimize our energy consumption and impact on the environment; supporting the Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix bike race; supporting local businesses; and supporting individual community involvement, such as my own commitment with the North Shore Rescue team."
