Fit Matters

We work on projects that reach millions of people everyday and make their lives easier, more fulfilling, and a little more delightful.

Success isn't an accident, it's deliberate. From the clients we collaborate with, to the teammates that call this place home, we've found that focusing on finding the right fit is as important as finding the right projects. Let us show you what we value and then get in touch if you think we're aligned.


Steve Megitt


Raised in the city just north of Toronto, left the 905 to #theSix, but not before turning my parent’s basement into Filament HQ. I may have had board meetings with my two springer spaniels, Chester and Bosley. I favour candour and direct communication because solving problems means sometimes having hard conversations. I do not read instruction manuals and have never sustained a power tool injury. I like to dig holes, put green stuff in the ground then fill the holes back in. I do this a lot. I find time to enjoy almost any terrible movie. I try not to be snobby about coffee but I like what I like. My wife thinks I can fix anything. I have fooled her. I don’t believe that anyone is as good of a multi-tasker as they think they are. Melted cheese is the best cheese. I think that anyone who thinks that the strength of a company’s culture is directly tied to the number of beers in the fridge is doing it wrong. I believe in the team and the power of gifs to convey the most appropriate sentiment in almost any situation. I think short punchy sentences are great.


Les Lakewood

Senior Developer

Places I’ve called home include White Pigeon, Fort Erie, and the basement of the El Mocambo. I’m no stranger to the sounds of birds beating their wings, the bending of trees rustling in the wind, and 56K dialup modems.

I believe happiness can be bottled. It’s called hot sauce. There’s no greater feeling than being part of a team doing it right, or being part of a band keeping the beat tight. Or maybe a data transfer progress bar moving quickly to the right.

I believe that people connect over food and frisbee. That memorizing Encarta ’94 is not nearly as weird as my proclivity for putting socks on first. I solve logical problems with code to simplify the complex. I recall music lyrics when you least need them, like now. I don’t wanna die without shakin’ up a leg or two.


Allye Vice


My Family comes from ‘The Frew’, I grew up in Ottawa, I love Toronto, but my heart is in a love triangle with New York’s musical theatre scene and the Ottawa Senators.

People, in general, make me happy. Family, specifically, make me feel at peace. With a weird allergy to raw fruits and vegetables, I’m your least favourite person to cook with. With a love of the TARDIS, Rowena Ravenclaw, and older Joss Whedon things, I’m your favourite person to geek out with. My brain is a vault for “The Office” trivia and every Girl Guide song but a complete sieve for card games.

I believe my TTC streetcar commute is my muse, where inspiration and solutions to coding problems strike. That late-night poutine does not require alcohol to be enjoyed. That 2-star rated rom-coms are entirely and unapologetically worth my time. Bacon is not.


Alexandra Garneau

Project Coordinator

Technically, I was raised within the nuclear contamination radius of the Pickering Nuclear Power Plant. Other people might call that Scarborough, I like to call it Toronto.

I believe that The Sims 3 is as close to perfection that a game can get. I’ve given up the notion that I’ll grow out of it. I can ‘Create a World’ about as well as I can create a spreadsheet with all of your project tasks and responsibilities.

I feel that the quantity of Youtube videos about makeup tips watched should be equal to the number of books you read. I read a lot of books. Like a lot of books.

I find peace in nature, in art, and in pedals. Riding my bike along the water is about as satisfying as a job well-done where I was able to help my team perform at their best.


Mike Lynch


I Grew up in the only house I’ve ever known in the west end of Toronto, appreciating life for its simple pleasures. I believe it’s the simple things that contribute the most happiness like the smell of a backyard bbq, the familiarity of a local pub bench creaking under the shifting weight of friends, or simple solutions that have a lasting impact.

I believe that the things you own should be taken care of. I don’t believe that you should judge me for having the same backpack for 20 years or my opinion that the iPhone 4 is just fine.

I’m a big homebody that loves big couches, which, coincidently, is where I’m just as likely to be reading The Atlantic as I would be playing Call of Duty. When not supine, I feel that the best position is a seated one; behind a drum kit or in front of a screen—creating and collaborating with bandmates and teammates.


Shivani Kohli


Born in UAE, oldest of two, lifted and shifted to Sauga City when I was seven. You might think that Olives and Mayo on Hotdogs is weird but I believe opening up to new opportunities and possibilities — even when it might be weird—opens you up to the best things in life. It’s also why I love travelling and meeting new people.

When not hanging out a new brunch spot, eating fresh Vietnamese rolls, or revelling in a bowl of cheesy pasta, you can find me walking my dog, Jasper, contemplating my next idea.

I believe that creating meaningful experiences comes from doing the hard work of thinking about the challenges people face everyday and solving those challenges in a collaborative way.
