Company Updates

  • Creating a "ThinkGroup" dramatically improved our Product Strategy team's sense of identity, their output, and their growth as individuals and as a team. Our own Director of Product Strategy shares her insights on how they made it happen here:

    How to Strengthen Your Product Management Team

    Our ThinkGroup is focused on creating a sense of community, evolving product strategy as a practice, and generally learning new things. If you're bringing a group of people together, it's a good idea to have some clear goals. Run an affinity mapping exercise to uncover the outcomes that individuals want to achieve from the group.

  • Our Ventures team has been busy working on a new concept in partnership with Focals by North. Introducing Project Clear: A guided tour for travellers powered by Amazon Alexa that works with your smart glasses:

    Myplanet Ventures

    A guided tour at your own pace Travellers often venture to destinations they've never visited before, but they dislike the lengthy research and comparison process required to make the most of their trip. Guided tours offer one solution, but frequently leave visitors feeling like cattle being herded unceremoniously from one stop to the next.

Myplanet – Why Work For Us?

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:

  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.

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!

    Generally, I feel that the leadership and the CEO truly care about the people that work with them and for them. It is a people first organization and it is a pleasant place to spend your day.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer


    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.
