Vezgo was spun off from Wealthica in 2021 (Wealthica tracks over $18B in both crypto and stocks).  We started our startup adventure as an aggregation engine and dashboard for Canadian investors. Vezgo was created to focus our technology on the cryptocurrency use case.  We hang on Slack the whole day and use a wide range of SaaS tools like Trello, Jira, Github and others.

😇 We value honesty. We do the right thing, even when no one is watching.
😌 We look for humbleness.  We are open to feedback, and learn from others.
🤟 We are believers. We do what we love and we build products we believe in.
🎯 We thrive on user-focus.  Focus on the user and all else will follow.
We favor simplicity. We focus on removing clutter.

We hire globally, ideally you can work and organize your schedule to have at least 2 hours of overlap with GMT -5 Time zone (Montréal, EST) or GMT +1 (European Central Time). We prefer that you don’t have to alter your life patterns to work (sleeping during the day, working late afternoon/evening). 

The founding team is from Montréal, but we have team members on each sides of the globe: London (UK), Da Lat (Vietnam), Veracruz (México), Warsaw (Poland) and more.
