Mission: To re-energize how people connect in the workplace.
How does the "cognitive workplace" move from theoretical future state to actual current reality? We spoke with Myplanet Advisor Matt Vasey on what he sees as the key challenges to implementation in workplace AI and how we can overcome them: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQqBw

Myplanet is an employee-owned software studio and certified B Corporation based in Toronto. We work with the world’s most influential organizations to craft intelligent software that helps people get their jobs done.
In 2009, we began as a small web development company focused on user experience design and open source technology. Today, our team of over 100 practitioners tackles mission-critical digital challenges that affect companies, their employees, and their customers.
We believe that the best experiences at work are those where technology acts on your behalf. That’s why we’re building deep capabilities in data-driven design, AI implementation, and personalization, while forming strong partnerships with leaders in machine learning, hardware development, and IoT platforms.
We're a team of makers, collaborators, and entrepreneurs hell-bent on making software better.
Designers, technologists, product strategists, employee enablers, resident canines… we’re a varied and fun bunch. Here’s how we describe our culture:
Bakers, hockey fans, gamers, parents, musicians... We’re not all the same, but we all have the same passion for doing great work. If that sounds like you, apply to join our team today.
A message from Myplanet Founder & CEO, Jason Cottrell
Hello potential Myplaneteer!
Thanks for taking a look at our profile. I wanted to give you a bit of insight into our commitment here at Myplanet.
Every day we come to work with one aim: to make the experiences of everyday life more enjoyable.
That means most of our time is spent improving the products we all use at work. We’re not out to create the next sexy, cool app— we’re more interested in tackling tough challenges that have a real impact. We come to the office each day ready to make another part of the workplace more useful, efficient, or delightful for tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, often millions of people worldwide.
If you wonder why you haven't heard of us, it's because we aren't all that interested in being flashy. You'll find some very cool work here, but you won't see us bragging about it in every social media channel we can find. In just a few short years we have delivered impressive revenue and rapid valuation growth, but we don’t let that go to our heads. We're proud of our growth, but we carry greater pride in constantly delivering world class experiences to our customers, users, and employees.
We love cross-functional individuals and we hold this as a critical skill in completing our work. We'll invest in you as a person, as a professional, and as part of a cross-functional team. We invest the most in those who are here for the long haul— we need committed individuals to help us re-energize how the world works (literally).
We'll ask you to participate in making Myplanet better, too. Help us strengthen our culture of makers, collaborators, and entrepreneurs. We want you to become involved in the discussion, to always be ready to roll up your sleeves and be part of the solution.
Lastly, we will challenge you to live by our values: Focus, Innovation, Mastery, Humanity, and Collaboration. And on the days where we don't do the same (hey, nobody is perfect...) we ask you to call us out on that. We will wake up the next day doubly motivated to stay true to who we are.
These principles may seem simple, but they deliver consistent results. If this seems like your cup of tea, now is the time to apply. Take a look at our open positions, perks, and employee reviews.
Here’s to building a better Myplanet!

I have been working at Myplanet full-time (More than a year)
- Truly believe and understand work-life balance
- Live and breathe the values of diversity
- Do their best to pair employees with projects, technologies, industries, and design challenges they are interested in
- Care deeply about everyone
The company is growing quickly due to delivering well on projects, and so are experiencing growing pains, Figuring out how to rework office space, staffing projects up without hiring too quickly, etc. But consistently ask for feedback on how to handle this better.
I applied online. I interviewed at Myplanet.
I had 3 interviews with this company for a marketing position. Staff was extremely friendly and incredibly intelligent.
For those who have made it to the 3rd round, prepare yourselves to be tested, questioned and to be meeting and speaking with other people within the company as they look for fit.
I didn't get the job but they offered me another position elsewhere because I was one of the highest ranking candidates.
