Mission: Our mantra is: It's not just business, it's personal!
Nulogy is a Canadian success story. Our story started 15 years ago when four engineering grads from the University of Waterloo worked on a design project that grew to become Nulogy. We are now a world-leading provider of specialized solutions for complex supply-chain challenges.
As a company founded by friends wanting to make a difference, the close relationship between our founders influenced the family-like culture that exists at Nulogy! This informs our mantra, “It’s not just business, it’s personal”.
Quality and collaboration are at the core of Nulogy’s engineering culture. We build teams that can level-up together, diffuse their knowledge, and build their experiences into a stronger product. That means using modern agile practices to guide our work.
We are looking for developers that love solving difficult domain problems. If pair programming, TDD, continuous integration, story walls, and retrospectives are your thing, then you’re halfway there. Couple that with a sense of humour, humility, and strong work ethic and we’re intrigued. Studied DDD or GOOS? We should definitely talk!

Very flexible hours
Food/Drinks frequently provided
Socially fun place to work
While Nulogy provides a very comfortable work environment and great perks/benefits, there is a lack of direction from leadership down and the inability to effect positive change. This results in employees not being as productive as we should be which results in a lot of down time, things moving very slowly, customers getting upset, not being innovative or pushing boundaries or working on exciting/challenging projects. It seems new hires are hired to do the job sold to them once joined, yet unable to actually do it once in the role. It is a very slow paced environment where you start to feel you are going a little stir crazy. Especially when you see gaps and areas that need improvement yet are unable to help towards improving because of a culture that is almost impossible to change. Professional and personal growth is very important and if a company doesn't allow employees to effect change or have a voice, they will not stay unfortunately.
While there is potential for Nulogy to really make some significant changes in leadership, it doesn't seem that is going to happen. I believe the org lost half of their leadership team over the past 6 months and other senior leaders because they were also not able effect change. If a company truly cares about their people and customers, and change is what is being asked, listening to your people is very important to ensure you are able to scale and retain your employees. Especially ones that are very talented at their craft.
Nulogy does need a HR leader as there is no one within the org who is experienced in this area to drive HR initiatives and help contributing towards improving larger issues. It has been a big hit on company moral with great leaders and employees leaving weekly and more disappointing to see nothing being done about it yet business as usual.
If you are looking for a comfortable job, easy going, slow paced, not much accountability or innovation happening, Nulogy is a good place to work.
If you are looking to grow as a professional, learn new things, challenge yourself and work with others who have actual outside of Nulogy work experience, then this isn't the place to be.
Conseils à la direction
Listen to all of the feedback your employees give you. Especially once they resign. They are your most valuable asset. If you hire people to do the job at hand, let them. And if current leaders are your bottleneck, then it's best to come up with solutions to resolve those issues. Also, train and develop your team. It's very obvious that several employees after many years at the org do not feel comfortable working solo. Foster an environment of learning and development and hire actual leaders who are capable of doing this because currently there is not anymore.
J'ai postulé en ligne. J'ai passé un entretien à Nulogy (Toronto, ON) en avril 2017.
Super slow. And unresponsive.
So slow that I ended up taking a role with Facebook in the process of this application because Facebook was way more organised in scheduling interviews and was actually looking for an engineer and no a comments formatter.
First call was great and was handled by an actual engineer. It was helpful to jump right to the tech talk.
Assignment was super easy, however it was rejected due to flood of personal and styling preferences of the reviewers.
I even got a comment about using `class << self` questioning what it does and wether it's needed at all in a module. Yes it could be `extend Namespace` or it could be a `class` even. Point is it's a personal or a style matter. Candidates have no idea about your internal style-guides.
Statement about the use of blocks just killed the last bits of my interest in this company. Assignment review speaks for the level of knowledge and type of environment.
Funny, some failed to even bring the environment without dependencies locally. Literally all you need is: irb and a bash.
I am glad the interview process is over with just an assignment and I haven't wasted more of my time.
Good luck with your business guys.
