Current Openings

We are always on the lookout for new team members to join our software development or IT teams.  

Our mission

At Mighty Oaks we believe through technology we can help our customers communicate, collaborate and innovate.  For us technology really has to be easy to use, secure and dependable.  Since 2002, our two operating divisions have focused on creating solutions to our customers’ problems and providing operational excellence. 

Mighty Oaks was established in 2002 and has been focused on creating innovative and highly customised solutions.  Today we operate in three different divisions:  

  • Mighty Oaks-Meewasin is the developers of Mighty+ our omni-channel grocery and logistics platform used by mid-size food retailers in North America.
  • OMNION that imports and distributes smart ambient and chilled last-mile delivery lockers from Germany.  When integrated with e-commerce solutions this addresses the last-mile problem in delivery.
  • Mighty Oaks IT provides outsourced IT to the local SME market and operates cloud infrastructure.

Our software development teams are based in Victoria BC.

Our culture

Culture is hard to nail down.  Many of our customers have been with us for the better part of a decade.  We have a long-term focus in nearly everything we do.  That shows up in our commitment to quality, our commitment to excellence in service and our in-source strategy. Mighty Oaks Security Team in Tofino

  • We could run our solutions on a public cloud.  We don’t; we run our solutions on our own private cloud using name brand server hardware that is administered by our team.  Monitored 24/7/365.  That permits our operations team to beter control reliability, availability and the overal outcome for our clients.
  • We could outsource development to Asia.  We don’t; our development team is local.  We believe in building teams that collaborate and can work closely with our customers.  For us that means being based in North America.
  • We could outsource customer support to a far-away call centre.  We don't; every one of our support calls is answered by our people.  It lets us control the quality of service and ensure issues are resolved before they become problems.

What we offer is the change to be part of a small team of 15-20 people that believes in collocation, innovation, quality and the chance to have a real impact in shaping the products and services we offer. 

Both our software and IT teams are based in Victoria, BC it may be a short ferry or float plane ride into Vancouver or Seattle but it is a world away in culture. Victoria brings together one of the most vibrant and entrepreneurial tech communities in Canada with two great universities, a great culture, a rugged coast and nature. From surf, to good music to fine local food there is a lot going on during the summer and it becomes just that much better in the winter when the tourists have all gone home.  Our business development and account management team works out of Victoria, Vancouver and Toronto.

IT Specialist/Consultant (Mighty Oaks IT Services Company)

As part of an inter-disciplinary team you will help deliver on our vision of how technology should be easy to use, secure and dependable.  This starts by building a personal relationship with our customers, to better understand their business objectives, desired outcome and expectations.  We back that up by using industry leading network operations monitoring technology and a strong internal technical team.  Being part of our team means developing depths in a few areas, and having a general understanding of the others.

Technical skills:

  • System Administration -  The systems we support are a split of MS-Windows Server and Linux servers.  Many running our own private cloud. 

  • Wide Area Networks - Many of our customer installations involve creating wide-area networks that connect multiple sites together, some in remote or northern regions of the country.    

  • Public Cloud Infrastructure – We frequently help larger customers make the transition from on premise to the cloud.  We administer systems on the Mighty Oaks, Peer1 and Microsoft Cloud among others. 

  • Security – We frequently help our customers achieve and maintain their PCI compliance.  We also design and deploy security solutions including unified threat management, firewalls, and advanced data encryption technology meeting government security standards.

  • Help Desk Support – We focus on designing and supporting systems to minimise help desk calls. However when needed, we are there.

To help gain that depths of technical knowledge you will be able to participate in some of the certification focused training programs offered by our key technically partners: Microsoft, RedHat, Sophos, Brocade, Lenovo, HP and Millennium Micro. 

Since you would be working directly with our customers to understand and tailor solutions around their needs, you will require great interpersonal and system analysis skills.  You should have demonstrated expertise in deploying and supporting IT Technology, with either MCP, CISSP certification or equivalent technical experience.  You will need to be part of an on-call rotation.
