June 29, 2021, FREDERICTON (GNB) – Missing Link Technologies Ltd., based in Moncton, plans to create an estimated 20 new full-time jobs over the next three years, with support from the provincial government.
These jobs will include software developers, software testers, data analysts, data scientists, project managers, telecom technical planners, and a marketing specialist.
“Strong, globally-connected companies are key drivers of New Brunswick’s economy,” said Arlene Dunn, who is minister responsible for Opportunities NB. “I know Missing Link Technologies takes great pride in being a New Brunswick-based company. This is another example of the positive momentum we are seeing.”
The company is eligible for an investment of up to $160,000 in the form of a payroll rebate from Opportunities NB to support its hiring plans.
It is estimated that the creation of these jobs would contribute $2 million to the province’s GDP over the life of the agreement and generate more than $225,000 in provincial taxes over that same period. The company has already hired eight new employees in 2021 and is on track to surpass the 20-person target before the three-year mark.
“Our strategic, collaborative partnerships with Opportunities NB and other government agencies and businesses have helped us grow over the years,” said Thomas George, the company’s chief executive officer. “We are more focused than ever and we intend to become a recognized leader in our field and in the New Brunswick business community. Now, we are ready to go to infinity and beyond.”
The privately-owned company, founded in 2001, initially offered professional services to telecommunication service providers in Atlantic Canada. Through the years, it grew to become a diversified group exporting its services and products to companies in Canada, Israel and, more recently, the United States. Today, the company provides diverse services, including advanced data analytics, and employs more than 40 IT professionals.
