Our Values

Our values support everything we do because we believe
that a great attitude leads to great results.

COLLABORATE

Our ideas are better together. We foster trust, respect and authenticity to support each other. We collectively celebrate successes and learn from each other to be even better.

BE BOLD

We are fast-paced, constantly evolving and flexible to change. We like to challenge convention and be tenacious in the face of uncertainty. We balance never giving up with respecting when to let go.

GET IT DONE

We work hard, persevere and take ownership. And because we know that positive attitudes lead to great results, we never lose sight of having fun along the way.

The things you’ll enjoy

We invest in our people because we know there’s more to a great career than just a paycheque.

We are people focused and consider our employee experience to be our secret sauce for greatness.

Connection: We are pretty creative at finding ways to laugh together, learn together and honour our competitive sides. We enjoy bi-weekly company updates, euchre tournaments, network groups and trivia games. And if there was an Emmy for the best company weekly talk show, hosted and featuring the Axonifam? We would totally win.

Celebration and recognition: We celebrate the individual strengths that contribute to our powerhouse team. And we love to recognize each other for our collective wins and honour those who have made a significant impact.

Your professional journey is as unique as you are and we support and enable you to achieve your career goals.

Daily training: Naturally, we love our product and actively use it every day to reinforce important learning topics.

Workshops & seminars: Throughout the year, we offer a variety of sessions that provide you with skills and knowledge—everything from your personal strengths style, to SaaS finance, to how to present more effectively. And just in case our workshops don’t align with your goals, we offer an annual professional growth spending account so you can find something outside of Axonify that does.

Coaching & feedback: We learn from the best—each other! We offer biweekly company updates, mentorship programs, continuous feedback from leaders and networking groups for all stages of your career journey.

We love what we do, but we also love our lives outside of work.

Time away: Besides the usual paid vacation days, we also offer “Life Care” days, Axonify holidays, Summer Fridays (condensed summer work week to enjoy Friday afternoons off) and a Flexible Holiday program to swap public holidays for days off that are more aligned with your beliefs.

Programming: Our in-house programming connects you with great resources to support your financial, physical and mental wellbeing, such as first-time homebuyer or retirement planning workshops, lunchtime yoga, cooking classes and guided meditation sessions.

Caring: You can find us connecting to our community through raising money and awareness for charities, using paid volunteer time or taking part in one of the many committees we’ve formed to support causes that are close to our hearts.

Benefits: Those in full time, permanent roles have access to a full benefit plan starting your first day which includes medical, dental, mental health and preventative care (think: massages and nutritionist support). And when something isn’t covered by the regular plan, you can tap into your wellness spending account.

We offer choices so you can bring your best self to work every day.

At home or in the office? We operate on a hybrid model where you work in the location that supports your personal and professional life: in office (yes, we are safely open!), at home, or another virtual location. If you come to the office, you have the flexibility to choose between a dedicated or a hotel workspace, depending on how often you choose to work in the office.

Early riser? You do you! We offer flexible work hours.

Mac or PC? Take your pick, because we want you to have the equipment that lets you do your best work.

East or West coast? We have employees working across Canada, the US and the UK.

Eid or Christmas? Our Flexible Holiday Program supports you to take the days off that matter to you.

“I spent time working with managers who gave me important work, let me take the reins and solve problems, and encouraged me to learn.  I have a 3D printed custom trophy and poker chip to remember Axonify’s in-house talk show I got to help produce each week. If that doesn’t scream Best. Co-op. Ever. I don’t know what does.”

The candidate experience

So you’re excited about applying for a position at Axonify? Here’s what happens next.

Once you’ve found a role you’d like to apply for, your next step is to create a profile in our applicant tracking system, include a resume, cover letter (yes, we do read them!) and a brief sentence or two to tell us what makes you unique. You’ll then receive an email confirming your application has been submitted.

Our Talent Acquisition team takes the time to review each profile, resume and cover letter that comes into our application portal. So even if you aren’t sure if you check all the boxes for a role, apply anyway! We ensure a fair, equitable process that offers you the opportunity to showcase your unique self and the value you will add to the role and our culture.

If your application is a preliminary match, you’ll be invited for a virtual (phone or video) chat with a member of our Talent Acquisition team.

Our goal for the chat is to provide you with an overview of the role, the team and why Axonify is a great place to work. We will clarify your experience, learn about your skills, and hear why you’d like to work with us. We also recognize that you’re looking to see if the role and Axonify are the right fit for you, so we make sure there’s plenty of time for you to interview us as well!

If there continues to be mutual alignment, you’ll be invited to virtually meet with a variety of team members. Our process isn’t the fastest, but we feel it’s important to give you the opportunity to meet different Axonifiers (and vice versa). This ensures we don’t have any biases in our hiring decisions. Some of the people you could meet throughout the process include:

  • Hiring Manager: To assess your knowledge and skill level. You may also be asked to complete an assessment to confirm these details
  • Team members: To have an influence in the decision of their newest colleague
  • People & Culture Business Partner: To share more details about what it’s like to work at Axonify
  • VP of the team: So you have the opportunity to connect with the senior leader

Communication is an important part of our process and your Talent Acquisition Partner will update you as you move through each stage.

Once all of the conversations are complete, your Talent Acquisition Partner will connect with you. If all the stars align and we’re the right fit for each other, we’ll verbally share our offer and follow up with written details.

We meet some amazing people with some impressive skills and wish every one of them could join the Axonifam. Unfortunately, we usually can only select one person. If you aren’t selected to join the Axonifam this time, please stay connected! And if you are looking for more information as to why we didn’t select you, please reach out to your Talent Acquisition Partner for feedback.

Our written offer outlines lots of details, including vacation, benefits, stock options and salary.
We take thoughtful care to determine the salary we offer so you can rest easy knowing you don’t have to negotiate. Here are some ways we always make sure our salary decisions are equitable, fair and competitive:

  • We access a variety of salary surveys that assess industry trends and the job market
  • We base our salaries on competitive ranges for each of our roles
  • We take a deep dive into your experience, competency, and future potential to align with internal equity and we take thoughtful care to review every year to make sure everything still makes sense

Once you accept our offer, we conduct a background check including references and criminal check. Once those come back all clear, we count down the days until you start your first day as a member of the Axonifam!

We want to remove barriers that may limit you from joining Axonify.
Email us at accessibility@axonify.com to let us know how we can provide you with reasonable accommodations through your candidate journey.
