Sr. Marketing Manager


Company Overview 

Syndesus helps growth-focused U.S. companies tap into Canadian employment solutions – legally employing remote workers, recruiting software engineers, and sponsoring Canadian work visa for tech workers who cannot stay in the US due to work visa/immigration issues. 

By “legally employing remote workers” in Canada for US and global companies, we are referring to the Professional Employer Organization (PEO) model, also known as Employer of Record (EOR).  These companies use Syndesus’ PEO/EOR model because they want to legally employ workers in Canada, and they do not have a Canadian subsidiary that can do so.  

Path to Canada (a Syndesus owned subsidiary) is a tech-worker marketplace connecting U.S.-based immigrant tech workers seeking to leave the US with Canadian companies that can hire them and sponsor their Canadian work visas so they can permanently move to Canada.

The Syndesus team has robust experience in sales, operations, HR, business development, marketing, and strategic partnerships therefore, we understand the obstacles faced by growing companies. We are experts on solving these problems utilizing cross-border employment solutions. 

We also have a great culture, a great team, and we are mission-driven. We truly believe in the “Canadian Dream”, and we advocate for the collaborative growth of the North American tech ecosystem. We love helping people change their lives. We are looking to build our marketing team with professionals of a similar mindset.
