You enjoy setting the bar high and clearing it. Your ability to think clearly and see second and third order effects is matched only by your ability to make spreadsheets sing. You have a reputation as someone who never drops the ball. You have a keen eye for detail and can see patterns in data and newsflow.

The Strategy Analyst serves as a set of external eyes and ears in the marketplace and participates in guiding corporate decisions. This is an opportunity for a self-starter and potentially a reformed financial analyst to work alongside some reformed Bay Street-types and senior engineers to help us and our customers chart new courses.

And us? We are well funded and growing exponentially. Last year, our revenue grew faster than Uber when they were our size. We are building the world's most advanced tools for retail and e-commerce. 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 obsessive and collaborative challenge-seekers to amplify our momentum and help us create an iconic Canadian tech company.

    About our results

    Our customers see a 5x increase in e-commerce conversion rates and a
    dramatic decrease in the time it takes for their customers to make a
    purchase decision. We are also reducing the world’s carbon footprint by
    eliminating trips to the store and avoiding product returns, while also
    saving marriages -- now you can be sure you’re buying the right product
    for your home.

    About our office and remote work

    We are located in downtown Toronto with nearby access to both of the main subway lines. Currently, we are all working from home; we encourage our teams to work from wherever they are most productive, and many of us will continue to work from home in the future, either full-time or partially. While we're all working remotely, 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 your pets and plants (if you have them).
