What's it like working at Thinkific?

When you ask our team what they love about working at Thinkific, the trends are always very clear: we consistently find “the people” and “the culture” at the top of the list.

Every team member helps make Thinkific an amazing place to work, and we're always trying to build upon our culture to ensure it's best-in-class. Here are some of the things you can expect when you join us: 

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, and our team is lucky enough to see the impact of their work every day. Come innovate with us.

Incredible People

Thinkific is made up of 115 of the most brilliant, fun, and honest people you’ll work with. The people who join us are not just amazing at what they do, they’re also collaborative, passionate, and caring. Not only are our team members happy to come to work with each other every day, but they spend time outside of the office together too - from soccer teams and game nights to group hikes and cookie club — yep, cookie club.

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 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".

Transparency and Team Work

One of our values is “Succeed Together,” and we make sure we live and breathe that. With our goals and values visible every day, each team member is encouraged to share their ideas and empowered to make decisions that can have a lasting impact on the company. Communication is transparent, and we are obsessed with building a great company, together. 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.

Salaries and Benefits 

The best for the best. We offer competitive salaries, comprehensive health, dental, and vision benefits (including up to $2000 for you to focus on your mental health), flexible work hours and locations, technology bonuses, learning and education reimbursements, and an open vacation policy - all to ensure our team is taken care of, well-rested, and always learning.

Cool Digs (but working well as a distributed team, too!)

We love our comfortable office by Main and Terminal, and we think you will too. Centrally located near Mount Pleasant, Chinatown, and Olympic Village, it comes complete with cuddly pets, places to relax and collaborate, coffee and lots of healthy snacks to keep you fuelled, and is conveniently located near many transit routes. And, if you're anywhere else across Canada, we'd still love to have you on the team! We're taking advantage of all of the latest collaboration tools to continue to do our best work from anywhere.

We live and breathe by our core values:

  • Succeed together
    We build on each other's strengths to make every project awesome.
  • Be helpful
    Whether it's for our customers or for each other, we always make time to help.
  • Choose ethics and integrity
    We choose to do what's right, always.
  • Fanatical about customer success
    We do everything in our power to help our customers succeed.
  • 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.

Be confident being 100% yourself

We believe that a wealth of different perspectives and backgrounds are what makes a company great. With a team that's made up of 49% women and folks who bring their own cultures with them from all around the world, we value and embrace diversity.

Thinkific welcomes all team members (and candidates) regardless of race, gender, orientation, sexual identity, economic class, ability, disability, age, religious beliefs or disbeliefs, or status. We’re proud to be an inclusive company with values grounded in equality and ethics.

In 2019, we were proud to walk in the Vancouver Pride Parade along with our friends from 14 local tech companies as a part of #TechLovesPride. Here's a few of our teammates describing why Pride — and inclusiveness generally — are such an important part of who we are.

    Pros

    - Amazing people -- super smart, talented, collaborative, and fun to work with. Thinkific is a rare place where you can do your best work and do it with people you love spending time with and can learn from. The values you see on the website are very much at the heart of the culture and the criteria which we hire for.
    - Exciting mission -- empowering entrepreneurs from all walks of life to share their knowledge and build businesses is a great mission to be a part of.
    - Great leadership -- I've got immense respect for Greg, Miranda, and the whole leadership team. They listen, care, and have a compelling vision for the company.

    Cons

    It's a high growth company and while there is a clear vision for the future, there is not a detailed playbook. We are building systems and solving problems as we go. So it is certainly not for those uncomfortable with ambiguity and change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, continue to promote from within, invest in talent and culture development.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thinkific.

    Interview

    Application, Take Home Assignment, Initial Interview (1 hour), Topgrading Interview (3 hours), References Check.

    The team at Thinkific takes the talent acquisition process very seriously and clearly has invested a lot of time and energy into making sure they are selecting a candidate who fits the role, culture, and the objectives of the candidate aligned with the company's. You are given detailed information for each stage to know how to prepare for the next step, full transparency. A 3 hour interview may sound scary but it passes by so fast and you are truly listened to!
