Inside Thinkific 

Transparency and Team Work

Everyone is empowered to make decisions, communication is transparent, and we are obsessed with building a great company, together. With a team that's made up of 45% women (who also make up 60% of our leadership team), and folks who bring their own cultures with them from all around the world, we value and embrace diversity. Our leaders are open to receiving feedback, and we still remain fairly flat as an organization when it comes to reporting relationships. No one is deemed inaccessible.

Cool Digs

We love our comfortable new office on Terminal, and we think you will too. It comes complete with cuddly pets, places to relax and collaborate, lots of healthy snacks, and is conveniently located near many transit routes!

Salaries and Benefits 

The best for the best. Competitive salaries, health/dental/vision benefits, flexible work hours and locations, hardware and education reimbursements, and an open vacation policy all ensure our team is taken care of (and always learning).

Amazing Customers

We're fanatical about our customers. From solo entrepreneurs to large companies, over 10,000 businesses around the globe use Thinkific to create and deliver education online. 

Opportunities for Growth

Being part of a fast-growing company that is constantly changing and needing to adapt means that as experts and leaders prove themselves from within our ranks, we need to celebrate that. We've had many team members change departments, get promoted, and set their sights on lofty goals that we will do our best to help them achieve—whether they're professional or personal. We believe that people are so much more than just a "human resource".

Meaningful, Innovative Work

Push yourself with interesting, meaningful work. We don't just want to learn from the best, we want to BE the best. Our platform changes lives, builds businesses, and educates the world. Come innovate with us. 

We live and breathe by our core values:

  • Give a sh*t
    We always put 100% into everything we do.
  • Learn and grow
    We're always seeking to develop ourselves personally and professionally.
  • Passionately debate
    We dialogue it out, and share our opinions and experiences so we can all gain perspective.
  • Strive for equality
    Nothing works unless we're treating each other with r-e-s-p-e-c-t.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Thinkific (Vancouver, BC) in March 2019.

    Interview

    There were several stages of the process. Firstly, submitting the application, which was very thorough, which was great! I felt that I could definitely leave my mark and show my personality and experiences through all the questions. Next up was an assignment that required me to answer a few questions as a simulation for real-life customer support. It was a fair assessment and had 40 minutes to complete it. After that, I had a phone call with 2 people from HR, which also went very smoothly. I answered many questions about my past experiences, my learnings, and more about myself, elaborating from my CV and application. Lastly, I had an in-person 2 hour panel interview which in office. It was also yet another good interview and felt more like a conversation where we went over my university and work experiences. Overall, I really enjoyed the process and felt that Thinkific was very quick to respond after each step. From the moment I applied to the moment I accepted my offer, it was a total of 3 weeks. I am very pleased!
