Archon Systems – Why Work For Us?


undefined

Archon Systems is a rapidly growing startup making software to help small businesses.

Our company was ranked Profit 500 (Canada's top 500 fastest growing companies) in 2016, 2017 and 2018. We’re also one of Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers according to the Globe and Mail.

Our flagship product, inFlow Inventory, has been downloaded by over one million small businesses around the world. It has reached #1 in its space on Google, TopTenReviews, and has the most inventory software reviews on Capterra.com.

We care a lot about both our employees and our customers. We have an amazing group of talented and friendly people, and we’re looking for more world-class talent to join us!

Passionate about what we do

We don’t just “get it done”. We love what we do, and we want to do it best! We’re always “in the zone” when coding, blowing minds when designing, and sharing a laugh or two with our users when helping them out.


Constant improvement

We are always eager to learn new things and develop new skills!
We go to conferences together, share articles and videos, and learn from each other. We also give feedback between ourselves (informally) to push ourselves to do better.


Serious about our work, not ourselves

We joke around, play some music, and do weird dances too! Ok, maybe less of the weird dances and more of the AWESOME dances (hi Siobhan!). But we have fun and don’t take ourselves too seriously, while doing great work.


We care about you

We see you as a person, not a job title. Emergency personal days are understandable. We notice when new employees are too embarrassed to ask for things and offer. We try our best to make all of us feel comfortable and cared for.

Group of good friends, working and playing together

We eat together, work together, and have fun together. We have lunch together (whoever’s not working from home, that is), and the company pays for lunch out once a month. We have movie nights, birthday/anniversary cakes, and lego building sessions too!


Giving back to society

We give back to society as much as we can. Each month, Archon Systems puts a portion of our profits towards helping third-world entrepreneurs via Kiva.org. We also give large discounts to non-profit organizations. From time to time, we also hold donation drives within the company.


Top Market Salary

We'll pay you well; our target is better than most comparable companies.



Stock Options

We give out stock options, so each of us can own a bit of the company.



Work from Home

We usually work from the office 2 days a week and work from home the other days.



Flexible Hours

We don't have a set 9-5 schedule, as long as your hours are reasonable.



Health Care Benefits

Dental, eyes, prescription drugs, physiotherapy, etc. are all covered for you, your spouse and children.



Gym/Health Membership

We'll pay up to $500 a year towards a gym membership or fitness equipment.



Conferences

Go to 1 or 2 out-of-city conferences with all expenses paid, or more within Toronto.  Yay!



Sweet Computers

We ensure that you have top-notch computers and software to work with.



Beautiful Office

A beautiful open-concept space for you to do what you do best.  No cubicles.



Awesome People

We spend a lot of time making sure we have the best people and the right training to work with.  People makes all the differences!

    Web and Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Archon Systems (Toronto, ON).

    Interview

    The application process was straightforward and very methodical – part due to the smart people at the company but I also believe part because they have refined it after doing it some many times. They seem to post a job and then interview for it, and you don't get the job, only to see the job posted a month later. You are required to do an assignment and if you make it through that round, you have to do another presentation presenting your assignment. That is after the first interview. So in total 3+ interviews.
