And the winner for the category of Emerging Company of the Year at the British Columbia Technology Impact Awards is …. Tasktop Technologies!
Wow, just five years ago, all Tasktopians could fit into an office at the University of British Columbia, and last week, we were awarded in a very competitive category for a company that is past the startup stage and has shown outstanding performance as a technology enterprise, strong revenues, and is on track according to its business plan. Getting to this point has been possible because of the talent and passion for innovation that defines the people that are Tasktop. This group of people is able to both envision how software delivery can be done more effectively and iterate rapidly with customers to produce the products to make those visions real. It is truly a privilege to work with such a talented group! And just wait for what we will produce by the time Tasktop is six years old.
Congratulations go out to the other finalists for the Emerging Company of the Year: Recon Instruments, who makes some very cool heads-up display ski goggles, and ResponseTek, makers of mobile survey software. It is great be a part of such a strong and varied BC technology industry. Thanks also go out to the BC Technology Industry Association for hosting a wonderful gala night.
Our hiring is continuing at a rapid pace, so please contact us if you’re interested in joining a team that’s transforming how software is built.
