    I am interested in going to work for a Canadian speaker company. I am a manufacturing engineer and would like to make my hobby my work. However most speaker companies i.e. Paradigm and Energy don't have career sections on their sites. I would be interested in working at any company located in Canada such as Paradigm. Does anyone have any info on how to contact these companies regarding employment?

    Thanks in advance.

    I would email the company like Paradigm or Energy and ask who the contact person would be. Try tech support if that is all this is available.

    James, I don't have contact information for you, but another Canadian speaker company you might consider is Totem Acoustic (http://www.totemacoustic.com). They make excellent speakers.

    Axiom is another. Also, PSB. In addition to Energy, Mirage and Sound Dynamics, API does Athena. D-Box does subs.

    James,
    If you look at PSB's site, right now they have a couple of positions advertised. A speaker design engineer and speaker technician. PSB Careers
    Hope this helps.

    Axiom designs their speakers here in Ottawa at the NRC too so you would not have to move with them.
