There will be a wide area of responsibilities waiting for you where you can prove your creativity while you work independently on several projects. Please contact us with your resume and a cover letter if you are interested.

"SSI was easily the best work term I've had. You can take as many programming courses as you want, but what I gained at SSI is real work experience and a project portfolio that you don't get from school. This term has definitely built my skills set and improved my job prospects."- Brad Bingham, Co-op Student, University
