About Heliolytics

Heliolytics was founded in 2014 by Rob Andrews and Michael Yan, in the heart of downtown Toronto. Small but quickly growing, Heliolytics is comprised of highly driven and deeply involved employees, who genuinely enjoy the work they do. We know that 9AM to 5PM at a desk in an office isn’t everyone’s most productive setting, so Heliolytics remains flexible with both work hours and location; as long as the job is getting done, everything’s gravy. We get along well enough that we’ll occasionally have milkshakes or beers together at the end of the day, but we all maintain our own vibrant social lives outside of work. And while we may not have a board room, we have as many coffee brewing devices as we have employees.
