Engine SevenFour is a custom web application development shop. We have been building our own software for over ten years, and we use the open source Laravel framework to provide flexible and efficient services to our clients.

Innovation is among our core values.  It’s why we enjoy working with clients who value creative problem solving, and why we are drawn to organizations that require complex technical solutions. Engine SevenFour’s mission is to deliver entertainment to the world, and we have deep expertise in building effective solutions to support content distribution. That said, we’ve come this far by working on a variety of projects and won’t turn down an opportunity to help organizations outside this market use technology to improve the ways in which they communicate, track and exchange information.

Following the Agile methodology, we provide applications that can be built, deployed, and tested using as much automation as possible, with the fewest bugs and inconsistencies we can control. This allows us to build more dependable software, that’s also less expensive to maintain, which means iterative development can happen quickly and collaboratively, and without extensive manual test cycles. Our life cycle management team uses the latest in monitoring tools to ensure that we’re aware of any abnormalities (such as huge traffic spikes, or hacking attempts) the moment they occur.


Our Background

July 4, 2001. That’s when a small tech team of two software developers and one IT administrator became rTraction Canada, Inc. The organization has evolved, and we are now a proud, Certified B Corporation—which means that we are in the business of doing good work and doing work for good, and that we meticulously measure what matters for our triple bottom line. We are home to two divisions: Ellipsis Digital and Engine SevenFour. Our teams work side by side to deliver on a shared purpose in an office space  that has won numerous awards for its design and adaptive reuse.


Work with great people and do cool shit.


Technology enhances the experience of community.


We help people discover their story to deliver their purpose.
