About PheedLoop


PheedLoop has always grown at a phenomenal pace, and it is a literal rocketship right now. PheedLoop is dedicated to developing critical systems for the events industry. From innovative software solutions to automate, simplify and monetize events, to new hardware products and most recently virtual event solutions, we are always building awesome tech. Located in Toronto, PheedLoop is one of the world's fastest-growing event technology companies.

PheedLoop is a bootstrapped and highly profitable company that is working on several new products over the next 12 months to make a big push into new markets. We are a small engineering team and are looking for an incredible developer to join our ranks and help us meet our strategic goals.

We’re a small and close-knit team so beyond just engineering, having an interest in the rest of the company and a collaborative mindset is a must.
