You are eager to understand how people interact with the world around them. You uncover needs by listening closely and asking perceptive questions. You have good ideas for how things should work and you use data to prove (or disprove) your assertions. You have a keen eye for how things should look and you value simplicity and intuitiveness. It bugs you when something is off by a pixel, but you prioritize your work based on where you can have the greatest impact. You are excited to take on new challenges and be part of something small that is growing into something big.

And us? We are well funded and growing exponentially. In 2021, we won Deloitte’s Fast 50 in Canada and Fast 500 in North America awards, recognizing us as one of the fastest growing technology companies on the continent -- and we’re just getting started. We are building the world's most advanced tools for e-commerce and interior decor. Our customers include Fortune 500 companies such as Home Depot, local retailers such as Alexanian's, and leading brands such as Crate&Barrel. We are looking for zealous and collaborative challenge-seekers to amplify our momentum and help us create an iconic global tech company.

About our office and remote work

We are conveniently located in downtown Toronto with nearby access to both of the main subway lines. Our office is spacious with roomy desks, comfortable chairs, and top-tech gear. The kitchen is packed with essentials including healthy snacks, exotic teas and fresh ground coffee. And we are surrounded by great restaurants and food options. The only downside is we don't have any plants (yet).

Many of us choose to work from home, either full-time or partially. We encourage our teams to work from wherever they are most productive. We've come up with a few ways to keep everyone on the same page, including a quick company-wide check-in every Monday, remote coffee breaks on Fridays, and ad-hoc topical sharing sessions. Another big upside is you get to be around plants (if you have them).
