I have 8 years of IT experience and reside outside of Canada (Indian Nationality). A Canadian company is willing to offer me a job.

Should they require an LMIA to get me to Canada? Are there any options for a work permit visa (preferably open ended)?

Should they require an LMIA to get me to Canada?

In most cases, yes. An LMIA is required for most foreign workers in Canada. Exemptions can be found here; no obvious situations apply to you.

Are there any options for a work permit visa(preferably open ended)

For Indian nationals without prior Canadian study or work experiences and who are not family members of a Canadian citizen or (temporary or permanent) resident, the TFW program is essentially the only way for non-immigrant workers. It is in general not possible to obtain an open work permit before you enter Canada.
