We’re growing our Engineering team!

Our Engineering team owns the code that lets our customers do powerful things with our product, simply and intuitively. We care about delivering the right product iterations quickly – we build minimum viable products, deploy to production multiple times per day, listen to customer feedback, and iterate.

At Hive, we ingest high-volume data in real-time from 20+ integrations (like Ticketmaster and Shopify), we store and query billions of customer data points, and we send 200MM+ of email/SMS every month to our client’s customers. We’ve built a growing, profitable business and the scale of technical problems we’re solving is quickly growing too!

Hive is an email and SMS marketing CRM used by brands to personalize and automate their campaigns. We pride ourselves on helping brands understand their email and SMS marketing, all while selling more and keeping their customers engaged.

We integrate with tech partners like Ticketmaster and Shopify to let brands act on all their data, so they can easily segment their list in thousands of ways, and send more customized, timely email campaigns that land in inboxes.

We started our company inside a University of Waterloo computer lab in early 2014, graduated from Y Combinator that summer (S14 batch) and have been growing ever since. Originally based in Kitchener, our team is now 100% remote and located all across Canada! We strive to provide an online work environment that allows team members to have a strong work life balance while still feeling connected to their team and Hive’s mission.
