  • A strong sense of visual design (graphics, icons, layout, colour patterns)
  • Interest in conducting customer research and interviews, and receiving feedback
  • Excellent verbal and written communication
  • Ability to grow with the company and take on more responsibilities over time
  • Experience working in an entrepreneurial, fast-paced and high-growth environment
  • Tremendous drive and always looking for better ways of doing things

Nice to have:

  • Entrepreneurial and fast-growing company, both organic growth and through acquisitions
  • The premium and most progressive product on the market
  • Access to best practices and growth opportunities through our owner Constellation Software
  • Numerous team activity opportunities outside of work (soccer, movie nights, beach volleyball, pool and ping pong table on-site etc.)
