6) Two Hat
Although Two Hat technically isn’t a Toronto based tech company, we thought they deserved an honourable mention since they have an awesome mission, are Canadian, and have remote roles open right now.
A Kelowna-based tech company, Two Hat’s objective is simple -- to improve the online experience of people everywhere. Their platforms Community Sift and CEASE.ai do this by leveraging content filters, AI, and natural language processing to reduce the incidence of cyberbullying, abuse, hate speech, threats, and child exploitation on social networks, games, and apps.
The Two Hat team is committed to stopping online bullying and child exploitation on the internet and are ready to put in the hustle needed to do so. An execution-focused team, they own their work and hold themselves accountable for the deliverables expected of them. This is a critical time in Two Hat’s journey as they continue to define their company culture and values. Being part of this evolution plays a big role in why their employees join and stay at Two Hat.
