About DashQ

At DashQ, we're pioneering a transformative approach to the way people find, secure and connect with rental housing. By leveraging cutting-edge technologies we are helping evolve housing from a mere commodity to a deeply connected community. In an environment where housing supply is limited, it has never been more critical to fix the inefficient systems that act as hurdles to accessing the limited supply we do have.

Solving critical problems requires a strong team with an aligned set of values - candid communication, curiosity, and an unyielding character are more than values at DashQ—they're our foundation for creating meaningful impact, both for our community and self-growth.

If the thought of passionately diving into these challenges excites you, then DashQ is exactly where you belong.

Why Join

Growth and impact. It’s not often that you can get in on the ground floor of a funded startup that’s scaling. That means that instead of following a playbook, you’ll be writing it. Every single day you will be challenged to identify how we can scale and execute on it. You’ll learn what works when you succeed and what doesn’t when you fail. Either way, the rest of the team will be here to support you.


In addition to the growth and impact you’ll have at DashQ, we offer competitive salaries along with the following benefits:

  • Performance-based bonuses
  • Comprehensive benefits
  • Fun company social events
  • Three weeks of paid vacation and paid holidays

We'll cover relocation packages from outside of the Ottawa or Montreal metro areas - we'll make the move exciting, not painful.

The base salary range for this role is $90,000 - $120,000.00. DashQ offers a competitive total rewards package which includes base salary, a comprehensive benefits package, and a bonus. Exact compensation is determined based on a number of factors including experience, skill level, location and qualifications which are assessed during the interview process.
