Deep breath. Exhale.
What attracted me the most to Intelex was how fast the company is growing and the promising career growth that comes with it. As part of the Engineering team, I have so many opportunities to learn and implement cutting edge technologies. I get the opportunity to interact with Product Management and I also get to know new people by participating in several Intelex sponsored clubs. I love that my suggestions are hard and I am recognized for my efforts. Intelex’s onboarding is something that I have never experience anywhere else – there is a lot of investment in making sure new employees are up to speed and supported.
It was such an easy decision for me to pick Intelex, when I came in for interviews, the culture just resonated with me. I considered myself lucky that I get to interact with almost every department at Intelex including product, development, IT, support and sales. I love getting to interact with so many people and build relationships across the company at all levels. To be honest, the work is very challenging and stressful at times (which is a good thing – keeps it interesting!), but knowing that I have a great group of people surrounding me and that we are pulling towards the same goal, that is what keeps me going!
Our IT department is the best! Everyone is so ready to help and we really support one another. This has definitely helped me become a better employee. We have the opportunity to work directly with everyone at Intelex which is what has made working at Intelex such a great place work – it’s all about the environment, culture and the people. The work-life balance that Intelex promotes has given me opportunities to enhance myself professionally and personally. I am extremely proud to be an Intelexian!
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!
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!
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 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!
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.
The working culture at Intelex drove me to work at Intelex. The best part of working in Engineering is being able to learn new things especially the product and our industry. I love the opportunity of being able to work closely and collaborate with a team. I have worked in the same industry throughout my career so being able to learn about a new industry is really nice, especially one that helps save lives and the environment. I have a very supportive manager and I have full confidence that I will have a great career at Intelex. I have also had opportunities to learn new technologies and develop my technical skills.
