Our People

Passion. Proficiency. Prowess. Ninjas.

These "Mikutechies" (terrible name, we know) swoop in, save the developer, and leave without a trace.

Ninjas are a rare breed. If you think you have what it takes to join our elite clan, check out our job openings here. Headbands optional, but encouraged.

About Mikutech/Joydrop

Mikutech is a full service agency specializing in high-quality custom applications, technical consulting and creative solutions. Joydrop is the brand for all of Mikutech’s gaming ventures. They were established by Mark Mikulec, a veteran game developer on titles like Warframe and Bioshock, an architect of 3D graphics engines and a visionary who has been at the forefront of VR/AR long before its recent popularity.

Working at Mikutech, and its gaming brand of Joydrop, means working elbow to elbow with respected industry professionals and up-and-comers in code, art and design. It also means you’ll not only be given the chance to show off your expertise and finesse, but learn alongside similarly ambitious people.

Mikutech is located in London, Ontario. London possesses a large game developer community and is also a great party town. We believe to work hard, you also need to occasionally party even harder. We share our downtown, co-working office with other small companies; we’re all doing unique and interesting things and all made up of good people. You've never experienced anything like it (and if you have, you know how great it is!) We’ll help you find a place to live in London as well. It's cheaper to live here than in Guelph or Toronto.

Business Development Specialist

With our clients, you talk the talk. With our projects, you walk the walk.

  • Do you love shmoozing?
  • Are these the only movies you own?
  • Do you never have to cook because previous clients still invite you over to dinner?


If you've answered yes, then read on Mrs./Mr. Carnegie!

Us:

Mikutech tackles real world business problems using innovative and progressive technologies. Boring sounding, but true.

Founded in 2012 and based in London, Ontario, Mikutech possesses the creativity and passion to conceive and construct products that result in unmistakable impact in unique markets. Whether a solution is required in medicine, education, engineering or entertainment, Mikutech, with the know-how in everything from business apps to games to virtual reality, can make it happen.

As our reputation continues to attract new clientele, a welcome pattern has emerged: companies or individuals bring us their most innovative or challenging idea. They've heard that Mikutech will collaborate with them; provice expertise in technical architecture, project management, user experience, and marketing strategies; and, above all, get the job done without shortcuts and within budget.

Mikutech is comprised of a carefully vetted group of veteran developers and kept fresh by an ardent team of software and media ninjas. Collectively, we've been doing this ever since personal computers have been bleeping and blooping out ASCII characters on low-rez monitors.

You:

Skills & Traits

  • Inexhustible reservoir of friendly, sociable energy.
  • Public speaking ability that doesn't feel like public speaking.
  • Recognition that business development is a hunt -- from studying your quarry intimately, to making sure the encounter goes just right -- except that instead of being shot and mounted by Donal Trump Jr., your prey flourishes because it met you.
  • Exceptional communication skills, verbal and written.
  • Honest and forthright approach in dealing with clients (Those who promise the moon will be asked for a delivery date!)
  • Big eyes and ears when it comes to software and tech, especially those that cross over into our specialties (like AR/VR, mobile, apps, education, medical science, and games).
  • Knowledge that "no" isn't a bad word when circumstances call for it.
  • Frighteningly good organization and time management skills, coupled with the ability to improvise on a moment's notice.
  • All those other phrases that you read in job descriptions -- ability to multi-task, excels in a fast-paced environment, driven, resourceful and creative, able to work independently -- but usually gloss over because they couldn't possibly expect somebody to have all those qualities... Except we do!


Experience

  • 2+ years working in a client relations or business development role.

Marketing & Social Media Intern

Canada

Our home base is Canada's London - no Big Ben or stiff upper lips here! A city of 350,000 people, London is primarily an academic town, featuring two major schools: Western University and Fanshawe College. The city has a burgeoning technical community, a reasonable cost of living, fabulous parks, great night life, and a wildly successful junior hockey team. Mikutech is proud to be headquartered in the Forest City.

But we're not solely focused here. Mikutech has a presence all across southern Ontario including Hamilton, St. Catharines and parts of the greater Toronto area. London's unique location right between two major cities (Toronto to the East and Detroit to the West) gives Mikutech easy access to clients on both sides of the border.
