    I've worked at many start-ups downtown and this company has been one of the best experiences in my entire career working in tech. Somen and Shaun are truly the best leaders I've had the pleasure of working with. I appreciate their transparency throughout my entire time there, especially during the acquisition. When I initially chatted with Somen during my interview he had mentioned that Ideal is a "Mature Start Up" and he was completely right. Every individual on this team is extremely talented, and I was so grateful that I got to be a part of such an amazing team. This company cares about every single individual on their team, and wants everyone to grow and be successful. Leadership made everyone on this team feel valued and heard. Even though it was a small team, everyone was open to collaborating together and I'm so excited for the future of this company and the direction that it's heading.


    Unfortunately with the acquisition, some departments were impacted a bit more with the change management, which is normal when a company gets acquired/integrates.

      Average Interview

      I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Ideal (Toronto, ON) in Dec 2020


      Initial screening call, then writing assignment with a second call to discuss, and then third interview with CEO present. In addition to asking about my experience, they wanted to know my personal career goals for next 5 years and what I was hoping to achieve. I was able to ask some questions about working style between departments as well of work-life balance.

      What was my experience building blogs and writing SEO content?

    Ideal introduces a new DEI Product

    Diversity and Inclusion3y

    The benefits are clear. Research has repeatedly shown that a diverse workforce leads to innovation and growth, with an inclusive workforce and high performance going hand in hand. More than just a risk of stagnancy in 2021, the health of your organization is at stake without a representative workforce. Ideal wants to help companies get there faster and more efficiently.
