IC Thrive's Story


We’re driven by the idea that everyone in every workplace should be empowered to thrive. Founded in North Vancouver, the very spirit of the North Shore’s natural history is weaved into our DNA. When we’re not coding, researching business challenges, or brainstorming strategy, you can find us trekking the trails of the North Shore, paddleboarding the Cove, or shredding a bike route on Old Buck. We can see the ski hills from our office, and we can’t imagine it any other way.

We’ve been around since 1999, and like a true 90s baby, we bridge the gap between the newest technology advancements and our people-centric work ethics. We started off in government, and organically evolved our product to be best suited for the Finance and Healthcare industries due to the highly-secure nature of an on-premise intranet.

20 years later, our strategic direction has evolved to better suit the needs of our customers and prospects. We understand that people are what powers successful businesses, so they need to be empowered with the right tools, and clear communication to achieve remarkable results. That’s why we focus on tackling one of the toughest business challenges: internal communication.

Internal communication is one of the most ubiquitous and misunderstood challenges in organizations today. We’d like to live in a world where silos and miscommunication are a distant memory, like dinosaurs, and fax machines. We work really hard every day to make that happen. By eliminating some of the barriers to a more productive and highly engaged workplace, your employees are free to focus on what they do inside the office, so they can enjoy more time out of the office, just like we do.

Meredith

QA Specialist

Chris

Lead Technical Support Specialist

Chris has a knack for getting to the source of a problem and a hankering to fix it! When he’s not meticulously searching for a proverbial needle in a haystack, he’s off somewhere playing sports in the mountains.

Marcelo

Operations

Ringleader of genius concepts, Marcelo balances many important responsibilities including HR, sales, finance, leadership, and two wonderful and sassy kids. With a love of pushing the team out of our comfort zone towards strategic direction, this Brazilian hugger is our resident visionary.

Laurie

CX Director

Laurie leads the service team with a drive more powerful than her BMW Sertão. With a love of problem solving and a passion for helping people, she feels at home here at IC flexing her management muscle and keeping the service team in line. Line dance that is, as they often are found dancing to DJ Karl’s Friday afternoon beats.

 
 

Diego

Security

As security manager with a specialty in roofing, Diego is friend of most anyone with treats and foe of those who carry mail, nothing gets slipped past this furensic officer. With a ruff past growing up smuggling sticks on the beaches of Mexico, he mostly works from home on stress leave.

Ryan

Development

Software craftsman of agile methodologies and development, Ryan is the proverbial lego builder for virtual features in our newest software. Being a born & raised North Vancouverite, he loves running, hiking, biking, skiing and pretty much every sport so long as it does not involve running into a bear (again).

Caitlin

Marketing

Content strategist, coffee drinker, wine lover, dog mother, list maker. Caitlin has a design crush but a business brain and tends to be more wordy than artsy, so she found a great balance writing at IC. When she’s not in the office, she’s in the mountains or with her rescue dog ‘El Doggo’ Diego.

Bender

Floor Manager

IC is Bender’s second career after retiring from being a canine blood donor. He has over 12 years of experience testing floors for durability and comfort. When he’s not managing the floor you may find him playing fetch, checking the recycling bin for cardboard to chew, or napping.

Céline

Marketing

"I make things pretty and practical and sometimes I code stuff." - and after spending 10 years in art school, 'pretty' is definitely an understatement. Céline enjoys travelling, ramen, and shocking us with how quickly and beautifully she turns concepts into pictures.

Calvin

Development Manager

Calvin very clever and humorous. Empowering the team with joy, coffee, and constructive conversations. Passionate about coding, graphic t-shirts and science coffee. Don't let his bellowing laugh and mustache twirling throw you off, he's one of the good guys.

 
 

Cam

UX and Design

Cam likes to create things that don't yet exist and making them as beautiful as they are functional. As half of the product team, he's in charge of making sure everyone is having a good time. In his free time he likes to run up mountains, take incredible photos, play with dinosaurs and listen to this american life.

Erin

Communications Specialist

Erin talks and writes about talking and writing better. Aficionado of blending cocktails almost as tastefully as she blends communications theory with business applicability; this dodgeball dodging, communications connoisseur is transforming the way companies and their people share information.

Kathleen

Business Development

Kathleen loves wine, and that’s the main reason she’s so fun to talk to. Passionate about RuPaul, cooking shows, crossfit, and helping people, she’ll dive right into your biggest workplace challenges to see if we have a solution that’s right for you.

Sergio

Developer

Sergio loves to get his hands dirty with all kinds of development and systems administration, almost as much as he likes getting everything dirty on a mountain bike. Always one for a story to tell, he embodies the archetype of ‘work hard, play hard’.

Rob

Executive Team

Adhering to the highest standards of our all six of our core values, Rob is our SPICED King. He’s the one asking how your weekend was and how your kids are doing with genuine interest. When he’s not working on our strategic direction you’ll find him sniping a bar down goal or spending time with his family.

Davi

Sr. Front End Developer

Davi has an MSc in computational geometry, so when he’s not drawing shapes or building proverbial bridges between humans and computers, he likes to dabble in musical, dawdle in coffee shops, and dally in mountains.

 
 

Michelle

CX Manage

Lover of a good verbal ‘light bulb’ moment, Michelle has been helping customers at IC for over 6 years. Our resident world of warcraft expert, Michelle is a ‘priest’ (healer) both online and on the phone. A self described ‘jack of all trades’ when Michelle isn’t at work or gaming, you’ll find her playing one of her 400+ boardgames.

Karen

Communications

Fluent in sarcasm, en ‘n bietjie Afrikaans, this mom of two and wife to one has sailed around Africa, biked over 2000km for charity, and has scientifically proven dogs are superior to cats by being charged by a lion. A fan of quoting obscure references from the ‘A’ team, she “loves it when a plan comes together!”

Karl

Sr. Tech Support Specialist

Fondly known as the office ‘nice guy’, DJ Karl, or IC whisperer, Karl is a master troubleshooter. When he’s not setting up cloud servers or fixing code, he’s typically found jamming out at his desk, singing, or sharing snacks. It’s good he found his passion in tech support instead of politics as he openly accepts bribery with beer, yoga retreats, and a night out.

Ellie

Head of Brand Experience

Ellie is a virtual michelangelo, but her genius spreads beyond creating beautiful designs. With an infatuation of simplicity and perfectionist eye, she’s a powerhouse of creativity. When she’s not making masterpieces, she’s with her 5 year old prodigy who she won't let us recruit yet despite our persistent requests.

Paul

Lead Developer

Paul has the determination of a champion. He brings it both to the development of our software, and to whatever cycling, triathlon or running race he’s in this weekend. When he’s not exercising or parenting teenagers, he enjoys watching movies and tv shows, or reading books and graphic novels with a science fiction slant.

Duke

Chief Engagement Officer (CEO)

Duke is IC's youngest and by far the most enthusiastic pooch in the pup department. Although he's still in training, he's already thriving in empowering his peers with his playful spirit and determination to dig his nose in to every project.

 
 

Nikolai

QA Specialist

Nicolae has a wonderful way with words of fatherly wisdom that warms the heart. He brings the same care and thoughtfulness to his work. Need some advice, a confidence boost, or a bug fixed in your code? Yep Nikolai does it all.

Leandro

Project Manager

Leandro is passionate about martial arts and is currently working towards drinking 500 different beers by the end of the year. Contrary to what that previous sentence insinuates, he is a very calm person. He’s known for his kind words, and contagious laugh.
