Furthermore, the leadership in Markham is so inspiring and encouraging which has enabled this great environment to naturally emerge.

“… I like simplicity, things that are easy going and whatever decision I take, I make sure those two boxes are always ticked. Working at Markham is one of them; I like that I get to wake up every morning and do what makes me happy. I think the most exciting part of being at Markham is the diversity in personalities and taste. It’s awesome how everybody marches to the beat of their own drum and somehow it always seems to come together to produce this amazing culture between co-workers. I believe that if you are going to spend 8 hours of your day in an office filled with strangers, you have to ensure you surrounded yourself with the most stimulating kind.”
