This guy is super excited for you to meet the team behind the private video platform

Our Story

Since 2013, our team had dedicated all their efforts to introducing video in the workplace because of the rising popularity of online video (YouTube, Vimeo, and Snapchat). That said, we felt it was time to start a new company that would introduce the power of this exciting medium to the workplace. We have developed a private video-sharing app focused on delivering a meaningful video experience in businesses because video hosting is more than just storage – we believe it’s an experience. While there are plenty of hosted video services out there, Soaq believes that sharing is what really matters – Soaq helps you get the right video to the right people, at the right time and so here are the faces team behind the private video platform.

  • Making our clients happy 100%
  • Doing what we care about 100%
  • Making a difference 100%
  • Changing the way video is used 100%

To enable easy and intelligent sharing of knowledge through video because it can transform a business.

To become the world’s most intelligent and widely-used enterprise solution for exchanging video content because many of the alternatives are workarounds designed by intelligent people who are too busy working on their own projects – so we have you covered.

Our core values support our vision and help shape the culture at Soaq. These five values are respected by each of our employees and help guide us through every decision that is made.

Our core values are:

Respect

Respect is paramount – for each other, for our customers, our partners, and our competitors because without respect, there can be no collaboration, no teamwork, and no trust.

Simplicity

Just like the tools that we choose to use every day, everything that we make must be quick to learn, and simple to use. Our solutions must be elegant in their simplicity because that is what our clients expect.

Innovation

We strive to see beyond ourselves and what is. We pursue innovation relentlessly, looking for improvement in every aspect of our products, our industry, and in supporting our customers and suppliers because their success is our success.

Passion

We are passionate about what we are building – we believe that we can contribute to a better world! This passion to help people communicate and engage in meaningful ways guides us in our design of elegant and valuable enterprise solutions.

Achievement

We believe that achievement enhances the quality of life, at work and at home. We seek employees who seek fulfillment because we believe our daily energy is driven by our purposefulness.

Ryan McHugh

Marketing Coordinator

Ryan is currently studying Public Affairs at Concordia University. Ryan was recruited by Carlo from a local home hardware store… the short story? Carlo was going to have to pay an extremely high fee for the late return of a delivery truck (why he had it and why it was late is another story all together) and he got out of paying the fee by offering the always opportunistic, Ryan, a job.

Ryan is our social media guru. He is our voice on Facebook, Twitter and our Blog. Apologies for the bad jokes and spelling mistakes.
