Archon Systems – Why Work With 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!

    Pros

    • Managers do take the time to conduct one-on-one meetings to get to know you and help you focus on strengths and work on weaknesses.
    • Great office culture where employees are encouraged to speak up and be heard.
    • Founders and managers sit in the same areas as everybody else, and there's a true open door policy (related: there are no doors).
    • There are monthly free work lunches and quarterly rewards for team performance, but they don't use food as a way to get you to work at the office 24/7.
    • You don't have to fight for the equipment you need to do your job well.

    Cons

    • Paid vacations are generous for new employees, but vacation time doesn't scale with seniority or time with the company. It's not that the environment is overly stressful, but providing vacation time really is a way to keep your best people performing at peak capacity.
    • Until early 2019, it was harder to have an idea of what career growth at Archon would look like for you. A new system in 2019 is helping greatly with this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the company culture intact, it's amazing and a great incentive for employees to stay and grow.
    Don't forget the core offering to small businesses.

    Interview

    Why posting a job that is not available. It's misleading and a waste of time. When applied someone answered saying the application was sent to the wrong address. Also, why posting a job that doesn't require immediate application. It's been there for months now.
