Myplanet – Why Work With Us?


Myplanet is a software studio and certified BCorp. Based in Toronto with global studio presence, we’re working with the world’s most influential organizations to catalyze change across business silos.

Drawing from a range of talents and perspectives, our team brings together data, systems thinking, and curiosity to build next generation experiences. We’re tackling mission-critical digital challenges for businesses by taking the millions of moments of interaction they have with customers every day and surfacing key opportunities to engage and connect within those moments.

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 shaping the way organizations use technology to deliver context-aware, multi-interface experiences that equip them to meet their business goals.

Designers, technologists, product strategists, account managers, resident canines… we’re a varied and fun bunch. Here’s how we describe our culture:

  1. We make stuff. Strategy is important, but shipping products that people will actually use is downright critical. We sweat the details.
  2. We get our hands dirty. No matter what our job description says, we roll up our sleeves and pitch in where we can.
  3. We prioritize self-organizing teams. We enjoy autonomy in our activities but look to our leaders to hold us accountable for outcomes.
  4. We don’t hire heroes. We work with people who recognize that great products are built by teams, not solo allstars.
  5. We’ve got the spirit of entrepreneurs. We take the initiative to try things out, ask for help where necessary, and endlessly inspect our business.
  6. We’re interested in everyday problems. We dig in deep on juicy problems to change how people get their jobs done.
  7. We communicate like we’re flat. We share ideas, challenge each other, and provide feedback as equals—no matter what our roles are.
  8. We don’t take ourselves too seriously, but we challenge ourselves to do our best work. We’re a bit rough around the edges and a bit less polished than your average agency but we seek out mastery at every turn.
  9. We strive for diversity. We’ll never be perfect, but we’re always looking to expand our horizons.

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.

Hello potential Myplaneteer!

Thanks for taking a look at our profile. I wanted to take a moment to give you a bit of insight into our commitment here at Myplanet.

Our mission is to shape how organizations use technology. That means we’re not out to create the next sexy, cool app— we’re more interested in tackling tough challenges that have a real and lasting impact for tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, and often millions of people worldwide.

You'll find some very cool work here, but we’re not interested in being flashy just for the sake of it. And even though we're proud of our growth, we carry greater pride in constantly delivering world class experiences to our clients for their customers 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 and we ask that you return that investment by participating in making Myplanet better, too. Myplaneteers bring together data, systems thinking, and curiosity to build next generation experiences and we do this by drawing from a range of talents and perspectives— we want to hear what you think.

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 (nobody is perfect and we won’t pretend we are, either) 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!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Myplanet.

    Interview

    The person in charge of partnerships is rude, inconsiderate and has zero empathy. I had heard great things about the company and decided to apply for the role and was shocked at the utter lack of respect from the person who runs this team. I am not surprised that most of the partner team has left as no one in the right frame of mind would and should work for someone like him.
