Having worked here for a good 6 months, I can safely say that Coconut is the best company I’ve worked for, and I’ve worked for four different companies, in both the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors. I work in the Toronto office so I don’t get to see our lovely CEO as much as I’d like to. (She's in Saskatoon, although she usually makes monthly trips down that we all look forward to) When we are chatting and when she is here, though, I take something away from every conversation with her because she is not only a BO$$, but she’s also super personable and always willing to LISTEN, and not just HEAR what you’re saying. The Toronto office is an open space where sales, marketing, customer experience, and our project management team resides, along with our CRO. Our CRO is full of insight and even though he’s extremely busy, he makes time and has an open door policy for anyone to approach him with anything, and that’s something I value highly. Every single person who works here is dedicated to their work and it really shows. The passion is off the charts !!! As a queer POC, I feel heard, safe and accepted in a field/environment that I wasn’t sure I could participate in. We’re one big happy family that values open communication and celebrates wins together, while learning from our hurdles/opportunities. Getting past stereotypes in a cis straight male-dominated line of work is a constant battle, but it really isn’t something that crosses my mind at Coconut. The company, when I joined, was not just talking about diversity and inclusivity, but practicing it to foster an environment that represents inclusivity for all.


Since we're a start-up, things evolve and change, and we have to adapt with those changes on the fly. That just takes a little getting used to, however, it keeps things fresh and keeps you on your toes.
