Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take to relocate an international candidate?

On average, it takes 30 to 90 days to relocate a candidate depending on the country of origin. However, your new hire can begin work remotely while their work permit is being processed

What types of positions does GTA hire for?

We work with intermediate- and senior-level professionals in software and data science, with a focus on technical software development and implementation-related positions. We’re always looking for:

  • Cloud architects, DevOps
  • Data scientists, data engineers, data architects
  • Mobile developers (iOS and Android)
  • Cybersecurity
  • Front-end, back-end and full-stack developers
  • Specialty applications including Salesforce and Service Now

Where do you find the tech professionals you work with?

We have especially strong networks in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, South Africa and parts of Southeast Asia. We also find great talent from our own back-yard in Canada and the US. Whenever immigration and relocation is needed, we can take care of it

  • We find senior talent where it’s hard to find - from outside your market and around the world.
  • Technical pre-qualification processes that remove risk for employers
  • Immigration services whenever required
  • Established networks in key markets for intermediate and senior talent
  • Cultural onboarding that helps your new hire settle in and stay productive from day one

Our HR team found an international hire. Can you help me with immigration?

Yes. GTA has been doing this for years and has a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC) who will manage the paperwork for your hire and advise you on which immigration stream is the best choice (there are a number of stream options for international professionals relocating for technical roles).

How does GTA vet applicants?

We use coding and other technical challenges as well as video interviews, all of which are reviewed by technical experts, who match you with the most appropriate job seekers. Only applicants who score above a certain threshold on this test are presented to employers

We usually hire on a trial basis—how does that work with an international employee?

If you’d like to mitigate risk with a probation period for your new hire, we have a couple of options.

  • Contract-to-hire: GTA hires the employee and contracts them to you for a probation period. Once this period ends, you have the option to hire that person as a permanent employee.
  • Remote worker: You hire your new employee as a remote worker for a probation period. If you choose to hire them permanently at the end of that period, GTA will work with you to relocate them, if you would like.

If we have employees from multiple countries and cultures, how can we make sure we're communicating effectively?

We screen for communications skills first, but nuance counts. GTA understands that different countries have different professional rules and norms—in fact, some of our team members are experts in the field of intercultural workplaces. To help everyone thrive, we offer neuroscience-based team training that helps every employee understand how to engage across business cultures more effectively, increasing productivity. We also offer monthly potlucks for newcomers to the Canadian workforce, where we coach them on how to understand and handle culturally complex workplace scenarios
