Help us grow!
Foko Retail is Ottawa/Gatineau’s hidden gem. We have been constantly doubling our revenue every year with no external funding. Our goal is to delight our new and existing customers with a product that is easy to use, engaging, helps them get their work done, and give them valuable insights.
We are going through an exciting growth phase and are looking for people to help build a company that can sustain many more years of high growth on strong business fundamentals.
We’re a retail communication and task management software company that keeps store teams engaged and focused on getting their work done. Our customers include some of the world’s leading retail brands – like Hermès, Club Monaco, Whole Foods, Under Armour, Converse and Victoria’s Secret.
But we’re just getting started. We have even bigger ambitions on the horizon…
Who does well at Foko:
A few words come to mind when thinking of what defines the Foko team.
- Focus on getting shit done
- Transparency and bluntness
- A constant desire to learn and grow
These are traits of people that do well at Foko.
Our team is the right mix of energy and maturity. We are there for each other, and we love to see a team-member push the boundaries of what’s possible.
What your day could look like:
Grab a coffee and join your team stand-up. Fill the team in on your progress from yesterday and what you’re going to tackle today. Open your favourite IDE (Android Studio, right?) and start your next task. Later, pepper the product team with questions, comments, and scenarios on some upcoming specs. Head over to the designers desk and suggest a behaviour change. Lunch time! Catch the latest episode of John Oliver with the team or take a meditative stroll down by the river (watch out of for the roving gangs of geese). Back at your desk, add a few of your favourite songs to the Foko playlist on Spotify and hopefully you’ll hear it over the office speakers that afternoon. Now, back to testing, coding and repeating. It’s 3pm which means it’s time to plank! Engage that core! Join the team leads for a quick bug triage to get priorities aligned for the next release. Finish off what you were working on and prepare for what’s coming up tomorrow.
Crack a beer and update your work-log in JIRA.
Qualities we are looking for:
– Confidence in dealing with shifting priorities and requirements
– Mindfulness of your assumptions and how to work with them
– Willingness to fight for your convictions. Knowing when to accept defeat and when to keep pressing
– Resourcefulness in building your knowledge of the product and its requirements.
Experience that helps your application:
– Android Framework development (of course)
– Java development

– Working in a fast paced start-up environment
If you want to live the life of a fast-paced tech startup with big goals, you’ve come to the right spot. We offer competitive compensation, bursaries to attend industry events, weekly in-house yoga classes, and a fun, informal work environment.
