Software Engineer

Tucows has been working on the Internet since the days when people unironically called it the Information Superhighway.

Today, we’re the second-largest domain wholesaler in the world with tens of millions of domains under management (OpenSRS / Enom). We’re doing all kinds of interesting things, including running an MVNO cell phone service (Ting Mobile) and building true fiber to the premises networks in towns and cities across the US (Ting Internet). We offer individual and small business domains and integration with various popular platforms (Hover/Ascio).

We’re a team of over 600 people serving tens of millions of customers around the world. Our growth has been incredible, smart and measured (NASDAQ: TCX, TSX: TC). Our success is built on a solid technical and financial foundation.

Ting is a division of Tucows (NASDAQ:TCX), a quiet, but very successful, twenty-year-old global Internet services company. From its humble beginnings as a software sharing platform, Tucows is now the world’s second largest domain registrar and provider of wholesale Internet services, and through its brand, Ting, is revolutionizing mobile and Internet access in the U.S

We are investing millions in building and operating Fiber networks and partnering with progressive towns across the US to change what people expect from their Internet service provider. We’re growing rapidly, customers are loving the speed, fast symmetrical Gigabit fiber internet, and the customer support we offer.

Our success is built on a validated technical foundation. That’s where you come in.
