About by TELUS

Badal by TELUS Business is a rapidly growing GCP (Google Cloud Platform) consulting company based out of Toronto, acquired earlier this year by TELUS Communications.  

We work with GCP’s top customers (banking, telco, energy, retail, etc.) to help them with Cloud Transformation, Security, Analytics, ML, and Data Governance. Clients usually engage us to solve their most challenging business problems and help raise the bar at their organization.

Why Badal by TELUS?

You get the best of both worlds. We operate like an early-stage startup with all the associated benefits (e.g., talent, growth, learning opportunities, flexibility), but get to solve enterprise-level technical challenges.

People: We hire top-tier talent. Our team consists of ex-Googlers, YCombinator Alumni, and individuals that built software for 400M users.

GCP is the Best Cloud: Maybe we are biased, but GCP is the most cutting-edge cloud provider, building on technologies that have been pioneered by Google: BigQuery, K8s/Anthos, Vertex AI, etc.

Growth: We have doubled in size in the last 6 months, and are looking to double again this year.
