Who We Are?

Omnigate Systems Inc. is a startup software development company headquartered in Montreal, Quebec with satellite offices in the United States that is working in the field of financial technology.

Our core mission is to democratize and radically improve options available for payments for goods and services, as well as store of value, both for businesses and consumers. Ultimately, it is to unlock & democratize the power of the Internet of Value.

We’ve developed the first core financial system built with extensibility and interoperability in mind. Essentially, we take care of connecting the plumbing for fintech projects such as ledgering, balances, payments, PII data storage, tokenization, authentication and identity verification.

Our Culture

Omnigate is composed of a small team of energetic, multi-national, diversified, friendly, involved, on-premise and remote technically savvy problem solvers with just a tad of geekiness and an insatiable thirst for new learning and challenges. The core business values revolve around global best practices and transparency while adopting a holistic approach to accomplishment. We are currently looking for a front-end developer to join us and complete our team.

Who you are?

You will look and pass through our website prior to meeting us and come up with original ideas to improve our customer journey. You are able to hold a discussion about the latest technology, especially when it comes to fin-tech. You have a great sense of aesthetics and a facility to express complex ideas in meaningful design.

The Role

Every morning will start with a fresh cup of coffee or tea (we are not judging) and then a scrum meeting with the development team to discuss, plan, resolve or prioritize the team’s tasks and backlog.

Living the life of a startup company means that each day will bring on new tasks, challenges and learning opportunities. It also means working with different teams to get a new perspective and that at the end of the day you will be going home with more tools in your toolset.

Ultimately, it means you will be working with a highly motivated team, in a very fast-paced environment and that, hopefully, you will have a feeling to bring something unique and important to the company.
