Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get a job in Canada during COVID?

Yes. Once you have a job offer and a Canadian work permit, you can come to live and work in Canada. The Canadian government is continuing to process immigration files during COVID-19. Many employers in our network are inviting new international employees to start work remotely while their paperwork is processed.

Where will I work?

You’ll work with your employer’s team, even if you’re working for GTA under contract to your employer. Because of COVID-19, some teams are working entirely remotely, while others are in-office or in-office a few days per week. You and your employer will decide whether you work in the office or work remotely.

Who is GTA looking for?

We are specialists in recruiting for software developers, data scientists, dev ops, cloud architects, mobile developers and cybersecurity specialists. Performance matters more to us than pedigree — we’re looking for the best coders rather than the most educated applicants — which is why we ask job seekers to demonstrate their skills. We’re always looking for senior talent with at least five years of relevant work experience (and it helps to have education in the same domain). You can see all the available jobs here and apply online.

How much will I get paid?

You’ll agree to a salary with your employer based on your experience. A developer with five or more years of experience can expect a minimum 80K CAD salary per year.
