Deep breath. Exhale.
I come from a non-technical background, so for me, my biggest growth at Intelex has been in the technical area. My colleagues and mentors have provided me with lots of guidance and support to pick up some of the technical knowledge relatively fast and apply it to my projects. Intelex has great clients, challenging projects and provides a great environment to learn.
I work in a smaller department which has also given me the opportunity to work closely with our CEO – I learn so much everyday so it is a unique and amazing opportunity that I don’t think I would have at another company. I get to work with everyone at Intelex, even if they don’t work here yet! It’s always fun to see some of the interactions I have come full circle from someone coming in for an interview to seeing them on their first day. I have grown immensely in my first year at Intelex. My advice to new hires would be to take advantage of the stage that Intelex is in right now. There is so much room for growth and opportunity – it is such an exciting time!
When I first looked into joining Intelex, I really liked how the benefits not only focused on employee well-being, but also focused on reaching out to the community – to me that showed that the company cares. I really like the freedom of creativity on our team. We move at a fast-pace and it’s exciting to learn and grow. Also, all opinions matter on our team. I value all the brainstorming that we do together and really fleshing out all ideas and potential issues. We work really closely with the Marketing team, which is an interesting dynamic since their perspective is very different from our techy perspective. It helps us to understand the “why” of what we are building. It has been a great opportunity so far!
My main motivation for joining Intelex was the incredible growth potential. The best part of working in Engineering (besides my brilliant, friendly, talented and always ready to help colleagues) is the opportunity to use the latest tools and technologies, while learning something new every day. It is a great working atmosphere with a family feeling and a focus on work-life balance. I have been provided with so many opportunities to grow and develop both personally and professionally. If you are looking for the work-hard, play-hard environment with friendly people, unique culture, great benefits and work-life balance where you can grow personally and professionally – then Intelex is the right place for you!
The best thing about Intelex is the sheer amount of opportunity to progress in your career. Everyone has been amazing when it comes to their willingness to help make you successful. The best part of my role is obviously the rush of closing a deal and being able to ring that gong! I’ve grown so much from everyone I’ve had the opportunity to work with. You get exposure to so many different groups within Intelex and benefit from so many different backgrounds of experience. Intelex is just hitting its stride – if you are highly motivated you will definitely be successful here!
The Platform Product Management team at Intelex has enabled me to pursue the areas I’m most interested in and truly take a new product or feature from inception to release. I have the great opportunity to work closely with all departments throughout the company. I’m able to discuss prospects needs and market conditions with Sales, help solve issues our support and services teams are facing, brainstorm marketing ideas with the marketing team and work on deployment strategies with IT. Being in touch with everyone I’m able to be a part of all aspects of the process to get firsthand experience in all these areas. It’s also been amazing getting to know everyone and feel that sense of comradery that exists throughout the company. The best part of my job is that sense of accomplishment when a project completes or a product is released and truly feeling like I’m part of something special. The company continues to grow, but we’ve kept that feeling that every member of the team makes a difference with everything we do which really makes you feel great about what you do here.
There is never a dull moment! The sales department is one big dynamo of activity and comradery, with a good natured competitive spirit. We are all working towards a collective goal while at the same time trying to outshine each other! I’ve worked in other sales environments where that can lead to knowledge hoarding and unwillingness to help, but at Intelex that couldn’t be further from the truth, I’ve only experienced an environment where everyone will go out of their way to help in any way that they can. The sales department really interacts with just about every group in the company. The best part of my job is that moment when you win a deal. You’ve likely busted your butt for several months and beaten several competitors to arrive at that point. There is nothing like that feeling!
I applied at Intelex through an employee referral and it is everything I was told and more. The best part of my job is the people I work with every day. I find everyone I work with is really easy to get along with and very supportive – which makes the day fly by. My role has given me the opportunity to work with different departments including Sales, GSS and Development. I feel our feedback is valued to upper management, which also given me the opportunity to think more critically about my role and how it fits into the bigger picture at Intelex. I would highly recommend working here!
The Product Management team is made up of Product Managers, Product Owners, Architects, Technical Leads, Developers and QA. We have such a diverse team of expertise and there is so much to learn from one another. There is so much mutual respect for each other and we are free to speak our minds and challenge each other constructively. The best part of my job is that it doesn’t feel like a job! I enjoy every aspect of my job and there are always going to be challenging times, but I know that I have the full support from my team. I have been consulting my entire career and my current role at Intelex changes the way I think about what I do. I no longer just focus on “what the client wants” but also how we can build a great product that is going to support the client and make them more efficient. I moved to Toronto from Singapore and my advice if you are moving to Toronto (from year round tropical weather like me), the winter is not as bad as what you hear!
I always wanted to join a fast growing company where I could learn and develop my skills. Intelex has a big focus on encouraging professional development and personal achievement, which has given me amazing opportunities both professionally and personally. My most favourite part of my job is the ability to work with such a hard working team who take pride in what they do, care about the product and always do a good job. My role is helping to ensure we are delivering a quality EHSQ solution to companies all over the world. For me it’s rewarding to have a role in making sure the end user experience is flawless. To do that I not only get to break things but also work with the development team to fix issues and find ways to improve the software. I feel like I’ve found my dream job, where I’m confident and my skills are put to good use. This is my second home and I am so happy to be an Intelexian!
