Clio – Why Work For Us?


We're more than just a tech company. We're focused on transforming the practice of law, for good, by serving a better solution to a centuries old profession and doing some good in the world while we’re at it. 

We know our technology changes lives. If that's something that speaks to you—you belong here, too. 


Clio has successfully grown from 2 to over 400 employees by investing in our people and product, in that order. To achieve our mission of transforming the practice of law, for good, we rely on our both human and high performing culture.

Clio was named one of Canada’s Best Managed companies in 2018, and selected by Waterstone Human Capital as having one of Canada’s 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures of 2016. Our employees have a founder’s mindset, which drives them to take responsibility for the company’s success, push boundaries, discover new solutions, and forge their own career path.

To better understand how we think, consider our values below. Our values were created collaboratively by a cross-functional team of Clio employees, and are are part of every decision we make, every day.


CLIO VALUES


Customer Success Comes First

We know our customers and know and our product. No exceptions.

We build amazing products that make our customers happy and successful.

We earn the love and trust of our customers and never take them for granted.

We’re humbly Canadian—but we’re also damn proud of it.


Play to Win

We think and act like founders.

We raise the bar—our success is the product of effort and excellence.

We celebrate our wins and learn from our losses.

We do not view quality and velocity as opposing ideals.


Thrive as #TeamClio

We win together and lose together as a team.

We put the needs of the team before our own. No egos.

We respect each other and the Company and strive to always do the right thing.

We balance what we give with what we take.


Draw the F***ing Owl

We are aligned with common goals and empowered to make things happen.

We seek solutions when we find problems. Wherever we find them.

We ask questions when we don’t have answers.

We go above and beyond. Always.


Live a Learning Mindset

We are curious and always striving to improve ourselves.

We aren’t afraid to fail.

We give each other real-time, honest, and actionable feedback, and likewise, we’re open to receiving feedback in order to grow.


No Doors; Only Windows

We’re open and accessible.

We’re free to be ourselves and to be genuine with each other. Clio’s culture is enriched through diversity.

We’re encouraged to say what’s on our mind and ask questions. Good, bad or ugly.

We communicate openly, broadly and frequently.


Work Hard, Be Agile

We love deadlines. We live deadlines.

We don’t punch clocks. We’re measured by the contributions we make.

We support each other to get things done faster and more efficiently.

We do not view quality and velocity as opposing ideals.

We embrace change - and we’re not afraid of it.


Stay Fit, Have Fun

We nurture our physical and mental health.

We laugh. A lot.

We always strive to be present, mindful and in the moment.

We have a fun and enthusiastic work environment.

We're all here to do meaningful work and transform the centuries-old industry of law—and transform our careers at the same time.

Our leadership comes from Salesforce, Amazon, the ACTIVE Network, Zynga, and more, and they believe in mentorship and sharing their expertise. You’ll never hear "that's not your job" here. Instead, you’ll be encouraged to explore and build a meaningful career that works for you.

We believe in learning at all levels. From company-wide lunch and learns to opportunities to speak at and attend industry-leading conferences, you'll find many ways to refine and expand your skill set.


We'll invest in your learning and development through innovative leadership development programming, an internal coaching program, and tuition and book reimbursements.

We provide an RRSP matching program, a highly competitive parental leave program, and an RESP contribution program to help you plan for you and your little one's future.

We believe in benefits that take care of the whole person. We have weekly onsite yoga, bootcamp, acupuncture, naturopath, and RMT massage. We provide healthy snacks when you need to refuel. In our Burnaby office, we have a yoga room, a zen room, an on-site gym (membership costs are on us) and a bunch of puppies when you need to unwind (that’s right—we’re dog friendly).

As part of our initiative to ensure that all employees have access to proactive and preventative mental health resources, our Clio Cares program offers a unique complement to our extended health benefits and robust Employee Assistance Program. Clio Cares provides an additional $2,000 to spend per year on Clinical Counsellors, Registered Psychologists, or Licensed Social Workers, over and above the coverage provided for paramedical providers. We’re proud to offer this benefit for all employees, regardless of level or role or tenure.

    Junior Software Developer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Clio.

    Interview

    A friend referred me for this position. They got back to within 1-2 days for a 30-min phone screening with HR. HR was very nice, polite and helpful. Explained companies mission and the interview process carefully. They got back to the day after and told me that they don't have a Jr. opening at this point.
    I had an awesome experience with my application and communicating with them. They were super fast and nice about it. They respect candidates enough to send them custom messages, not a generic thing 5 months after that you are not selected.
    Would 100% apply again.
