We are thrilled that Mercatus has made it onto the 2019 List of Best Workplaces™ in Technology, as recognized by the folks over at Great Place to Work® Canada. We ranked among the best based on our employee responses to a Trust Index survey. With a score that’s 10% higher than last year, our ranking puts Mercatus well into the 90th percentile among Great Place to Work CertifiedTM technology companies.

This is an impressive accomplishment, but one that comes as no surprise to the people who work here. We attract the smartest, most creative and talented people, and provide an environment where they can grow and thrive both professionally and personally.

Best Place to Work in Technology Award BadgeAt Mercatus, we’re passionate about creating an incredible company that builds great products and delivers an awesome experience for our clients. To do that, we attract the smartest, most creative and talented people, and provide an environment where they can grow and thrive both professionally and personally.

Folks here are hard working and passionate about what we do. We love our work and we enjoy working together. One of the exceptional things about Mercatus is that the people here genuinely care about each other. We recognize each other’s victories and accomplishments, we support each other when help is needed, and perhaps most important of all — we have fun together.

As one of the best workplaces in technology to work, it’s part of what makes us look forward to coming to work each day, and it’s part of our belief that work should revolve around life, not the other way around.

Great Place to Work® is the global authority on high-trust, high-performance workplace cultures and conducts the world’s largest workplace study. The study looks at five workplace dimensions — credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie — as well as overall belief that “taking everything into account, I would say this is a great place to work.”

We are honoured to have ranked so high on this list because it is a reliable indication of the enormous amount of confidence placed in the company by Mercatus employees.

At Mercatus, we’re always on the lookout for exceptionally talented people who share our values. If that’s you, be sure to check out our Careers page.

Despite these reductions, total online sales in May remained 3.5 times higher than pre-COVID levels (2.0 billion in total sales for Aug. 2019 per prior Brick Meets Click research).
