    I have been working at Jumpfactor full-time

    Pros

    Jumpfactor is a great place to work if you are looking for a company that values culture. They strongly believe that culture is the driving force to a great work environment. Leadership is great. The CEO is a great leader. The people are great - willing to help, passionate, and care about what they're doing. Its fun working with people who are so committed to what the company is trying to accomplish.

    Cons

    Jumpfactor is growing really fast. There are definitely challenges with growth. Other than that I see no other cons

    I have been working at Jumpfactor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I’m extremely grateful to be working at Jumpfactor. It’s an incredible learning experience — and you will gain so much knowledge from working here. The team is one of the best things about Jumpfactor. You get to truly work with people who are passionate about what they do and give their 110% all the time. However, this job isn’t for the faint-hearted. It’s a fast-paced environment that needs 100% focus and dedication. It’s not the kind of position where you watch YouTube videos all day to pass the time — your always busy with new and exciting challenges, delivering results for your clients and discovering new strategies. A strong work ethic is necessary. And the fast-paced work environment is something I really enjoy. As with all workplaces, there’s good and bad. However, I do believe that you can speak to the management team transparently, voice your concerns and you will see real change. The support that you get is tremendous but you have to be active in voicing it (and you may have to repeat yourself a few times). Jumpfactor is an industry leader in terms of inbound and SEO and if that’s a focus in your career, and you have the work ethic, I highly recommend JF as a place to work. You get to build strong relationships and trust with the management team which is refreshing —

    I have been working at Jumpfactor full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Been working with Jumpfactor in our Toronto Offices since June 2010. Prior to this, spent most of my career in banking with one of the top business conglomerates in Asia and worked with a number of senior business executives. Can attest that Jumpfactor’s CEO is unquestionably a driving force behind the company. The team and management being built are equally strong and driving the growth forward. The CEOs vision and passion is admirable and infectious. Seeing how the company grew the past 10 years to where it is now is amazing. Personally, it has been and continues to be a great learning and working experience for me. The camaraderie, openness , trust and support is all worth my tenure. Added to this the challenges of being thrown into new areas at times gives me a sense of accomplishment. Have to keep on my toes and still look forward to many more years of success with the company.

    Cons

    The 1-1.5 hours commute to work and doing finance, admin & some hr work alone especially now that the team has grown is a bit of stress - but it’s good to see we are hiring a lot.

    Pros

    The team is amazing and always willing to really step in and help. Sales team is awesome at how they are able to pivot to continuously bring in new business. I haven't worked at an agency that is able to land clients like Jumpfactor does. This is a direct result of the oversight of the management team. There are well documented processes and a ton of great training videos for any area that you want to learn.

    Cons

    Would prefer a downtown location

    Lots of work. Be prepared to work hard. As long as you can work as hard as everyone around you then you should be fine. Be prepared to stay passed 5:30 on occasion though

    I worked at Jumpfactor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    thrown into the fire, loved the autonomy and opportunity to further build my communication & leadership skills with clients and colleagues found it exhilarating to deeply learn the ins and outs of many of our client businesses as the team built out and managed successful marketing programs, I am deeply grateful for the priceless experience Zamir, the CEO, is a world of knowledge and a true entrepreneur; he has built several businesses in the past from design & manufacturing, distribution to retail, it is no surprise Jumpfactor is viewed as experts in B2B digital marketing; Jumpfactor has established world class partnerships and have been recognized with industry and business awards such as Profit 500 Although I have left the business I continue to seek the CEO’s guidance on matters; he actively helps support entrepreneurship and mentors young professionals; for multiple years Jumpfactor has also supports a global student entrepreneurship program loved my fellow co-workers, the culture, had lots of opportunity to grow, competitive compensation & benefits

    Cons

    my prior experience is from competitive in-house roles; surprisingly I initially struggled with the how fast the tempo at Jumpfactor was, early on I was called out on more than one occasion when I dropped the ball. it was an adjustment to experience a very high level of transparency amongst the team, particularly with management; I can see how the fast pace and transition to radical transparency can be different and scary for many I had to push myself to learn Project Management, Traction & EOS to keep up. It was a great feeling to get into the rhythm and tempo with the CEO and the other top performers on the team. It truly is a thrill to see and be part of a high-performance team. The training was becoming a major focus and I strongly recommend Jumpfactor doubles down on those efforts especially if they continue grow and onboard as quickly as they have been very fast paced, self starters only

    Pros

    Jumpfactor has a very collaborative and open-minded team that makes coming to work really fun! Jumpfactor really embraces team work, integrity, constant learning and development as some of their core values. It's a fast paced environment that promotes an environment that's both engaging and motivating.

    Cons

    Agency life comes with a fast paced environment that can get a bit hectic at times, but nothing that can't be handled.

    I worked at Jumpfactor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -I started in March 2018 as just another writer looking for a job. But 18 months later, I left Jumpfactor as a seasoned Content Marketer with marketable skills in areas that I didn't even imagine learning when I joined, such as sales copywriting, SEO, conversion optimization, etc. -I don't know if it's Zamir's eye for promising (yet grossly underrated) talent, or if we're all just a bunch of ambitious misfits, but JF has been the *only* workplace in my experience that takes a chance on people with 'unconventional' professional backgrounds. You don't need a degree and 2-3 years of professional experience to get a shot here; rather, show initiative with a personal pet project, or willingness to learn marketable skills (especially if they're outside of your comfort zone) and you'll get an interview for sure. -Not only did I benefit from paid training (a $500 USD sales copywriting course, 100% subsidized by JF) and mentorship from JF's Management team, but I was given tons and tons of patience as I weaved through my mistakes. Where other small companies will want to cut you loose, JF will try pulling you to your potential, even on its dime (so long as you put in the effort). -Yes, there were some stressful times, but that's natural in a working environment that prioritizes profitability. There's NO coasting here, and JF will flip any idle/free time you have *during work hours* with, guess what, "work"!? -No matter how much you have to learn, or how long it takes you to figure it out, the moment you submit your first task, you're a valued team member. And as you grow, JF will do everything in its ability to retain you. Of course, it can't work out all the time, but if you're an earnest person dedicated to putting out good work, the entire JF team -- from top to bottom -- will value you.

    Cons

    --There's definitely stress time-to-time. There's net-growth in terms of clients and billings every month it seems, so keeping pace with our deliverables is tough. On the other hand, that speaks to the fact that JF is both adding and retaining happy clients, hence why it's always in a hiring state (at least since I've been there). --Management can get a tad too enthusiastic about personal and company growth, which might inadvertently lead to a spike in workloads and stress. However, the key is to be transparent and speak to your supervisors. Just tell them of what you can handle and they'll accommodate. --The office coffee machine runs out too quickly (and at inopportune times).

    I have been working at Jumpfactor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - I personally love the constant focus on learning and improving digital marketing strategies and tactics. The team is tight-knit and entirely results focused. | - Personal opinions and beliefs NEVER trump actual data and results, we always plan, test, validate, deploy, review, and repeat. I've learned so much after just a few years that I easily trump experts that are several decades my senior, and I even go back to my old University to share new best practices and tactics with people who once taught me. | - Easy opportunities for growth if you're dedicated and drive results. I've been promoted twice in two years and now manage several accounts and a team. I started in an entry level position, so if you're someone who can be dedicated, you can grow very quickly in a short time. | - Awesome company investments in the team. We always have company outings (like Archery Tag or Escape Rooms), company wide learning days and hackathons, lunch brought into the office, after hours parties, this list can go on and on. Spend a few months here and you easily fall into a tight-knit team. | - EVERYONE on the team is a top-tier committed expert in their field - from design to SEO to content to strategy etc. I'm surrounded by people who all know more than me in their space, and we work together to drive kick-ass results. I'm constantly learning from the team, and nobody thinks twice about lending a hand where needed. This is the best team I've worked with. | - There's no playing favorites or ridiculous hierarchy here. Everyone is encouraged to speak their mind - we call it radical transparency. You're encouraged to push back, share your thoughts, and take ownership. Everything is based on results, the way it should be in every business. | - AMAZING clients. I've worked with the same clients for years now. The retention rates are like nothing I've seen before. We become friends and partners with our clients, and we work with some of the best B2B companies in the world. | - Casual environment. Everyone here is at the top of their game. This isn't a place where a 3-piece suit buys you favorite points with the CEO. The team is comfortable and very open and honest. There's no playing politics. We all trust each-other, the managers have an open-door policy, people bring their dogs to the office, the space is open-concept, I love it.

    Cons

    - (for me personally) the drive. I live in Mississauga so getting to North York can sometimes be a bit of a trek. It's a small price to pay to get to work with such a great team, plus the regular work-from-home days make this a minor thing. | - This is not a laid-back do-nothing type of job. Only apply here is you're someone who is passionate and has a drive for fast past, results-based digital marketing. You constantly need to be learning and up-skilling yourself to ensure our clients stay ahead of their competition. If you're looking for laid-back work and 3-hour lunch breaks, this isn't the one for you. | - Deadline crunches. A few times a year you might have several really important campaigns for several clients all starting around the same time, and you'll need to put in extra time to make sure things run smoothly. However, if you're planning and working with your team correctly, you can avoid these situations. | - You'll need to sometimes deal with difficult clients (i guess this is a fact of life at any job). If you set expectations and drive results, this is almost never an issue, but it can happen.
