Job Type: Full-time, Permanent (Contract, 1-Year Renewals)

Salary: $90,000-$100,000 per year (CAD)

Benefits:
  • Casual dress
  • Flexible schedule
  • Paid time off
  • Work from home

It would be great to hear why you’re interested in working with us, and to get to know you better.

Please submit a brief cover letter along with your resume and portfolio!
