Goodland is a job platform solely for technology and data professionals, connecting them with platform-approved companies. The idea of the platform is to turn the traditional recruitment process on its head. By filling out your profile, companies can approach you directly with transparent job offers. The selection criteria on both sides create a transparent and efficient marketplace, allowing both candidates and companies to focus on finding the right person and the right employer. It is a win-win strategy.
The demand for skills varies. Currently, we see a strong need in the areas of mobile development and frontend and backend web development. We also have positions in DevOps and Data Science. Experience in a start-up is an asset, but not a prerequisite. A good level of English and/or French is also required for most of the jobs offered.
First, you must register and create your profile in which you put forward your job preferences. Once this is done and your profile is fully created, you will be added to our list of candidates. Our selection algorithm will only show your anonymous profile to the companies that match what you are looking for. These companies will then be able to send you an invitation to unlock your profile and get in touch with you. Accept invitations for the positions you are interested in, participate in interviews, and choose the position that most closely matches your ideal.

If you think your soft skills are worth mentioning as well, we encourage you to include them in your profile.

An interview invitation is a request for an interview for a specific position. It means that a company has liked your profile and wants to discuss a position with you. Accepting an interview invitation does not bind you to the company and you can accept as many interview invitations as you like. Once you accept an invitation, your contact information will be visible to the employer.
The interview encourages you to list job-specific information. You can think of them as a more transparent version of a traditional job offer. They include recurring elements, such as a job description and skills specification, but also salary and other benefits, as well as a personalized message from the CEO, CTO or hiring manager, depending on the size of the company. For more company-specific information, you can click on their profile and review it.
Each company on the platform has an individual company profile. This is a detailed overview of the technical credentials and work culture, and is accessible via the interview invitation. Company profiles include information about the development team, products, technology stack, hiring process, as well as a timeline of major developments and a direct message from the CTO, CEO or HR manager, depending on the size of the company. So you can use the company profiles as a resource to decide which companies interest you the most.
