User Experience Design and Software Engineering Careers
If the name “Macadamian” didn’t tip you off, let it be known that we’ve got a truly unique – and incredibly fun – work culture here. We offer smart, capable people exceptional employment benefits on par with the big guys, along with the relaxed, energetic and youthful culture of a smaller company.
We're always on the lookout for exceptional software designers, interaction designers, and visual designers. If you are interested in working at Macadamian, please see the openings below or contact us at email@example.com.
Work AND Have Fun
Having fun is part of every Macadamian workday, because we know that blowing off steam is part of the creative process. Here, you’ll work hard at your funky desk then beat your boss at Nintendo in the lounge. Or perhaps you’re more into espresso than foosball – so head to the kitchen for a java and a magazine.
Join Macadamian's Award-Winning Team
Take your career to the next level! At Macadamian, we're passionate about creating and inspiring superb software. We work with the world's biggest brands and we have a track record for delivering products that stand out in the marketplace. Our award-winning team makes it all happen.

At the same time, we're recognized as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for Young People 2012.
See the Light of Day
We encourage our employees to enjoy the outdoors. You can eat your lunch outside on our well-furnished patio, or go for a run and clean up in the private shower. And, when there’s no long weekend in the month, enjoy a “Mac Day” on us.
Do it right
A lot of companies say they are serious about best practices. At Macadamian we mean it. We take a great deal of pride in the software we develop for our customers, and we follow lightweight engineering processes like Single Committer development - a peer review technique that we adopted from the Open Source community.
Learn from the Best
At Macadamian, every employee has direct access to the management team – because the managers are integral parts of every project team. That means you’ll have the opportunity to learn, and you’ll be supported in your career development. You’ll also have the opportunity to take on leadership roles.
Dynamic Work Experience
You will work on some of the most exciting new technologies and projects, from a wide range of technology leaders and startups alike.
You will work with small agile teams who care about best practices and have a strong desire to deliver quality software.
You will switch gears often to work on new projects and learn new technologies.
You will work in an environment that values communication, honesty, work-life balance and mutual respect, and where your voice will be heard and your opinions matter.
Macadamian is one of the founders and active members of the Ottawa High School Technology program, an initiative that pairs industry with schools to nurture student interest in science and technology. We believe that for Canada to stay as one of the leading innovators, we need to start with our schools, and nurture interest in science and technology. At Macadamian you have the opportunity to volunteer in the program, and work with young adults in our high schools to nurture a fascination with technology.
Who are we looking for?
Our customers expect us to be able to ramp up quickly on new technologies, and to have the deep technical knowledge required to help them be first to market. We look for people who have a very good understanding of Object Oriented design principles, who have very strong technical Kung Foo, and who have an insatiable hunger to learn new things.
