Who we are

We’re a tech company with a heart

Our team comprises bright developers, data scientists and innovators. More importantly, every one of us is a hard working and knowledge-hungry thinker, with empathy and respect woven directly into our culture.

We operate on the foundation of equity and flexibility in how we work together and strategize. We take ownership over our projects, devote our hearts and minds to them, and take pride in the results.

At ThinkData Works, you get to come as you are, in a place that values work and play. We’re solving exciting real life problems as a caring and talented team that celebrates every win!”

How we work

We’re a hybrid workforce

We have offices in Toronto, Canada and London, UK and our team works hard to maintain a close-knit culture despite the physical distance. With flexible hours and the choice to work from home, the office, or sometimes even abroad, employees can create a workday that fits into their lives, not the other way around.

We use tools like Slack to keep us all connected, and we have weekly All-Hands Meetings to ensure everyone is on the same page no matter where they are. We even host a mix of in-person and virtual events so no one misses out.

Working at ThinkData Works has shown me a ton — I’m impressed by my coworkers every day. Getting to hang out with friends who are capable of building such an awesome product is an absolute pleasure, and being a part of a close-knit culture has made it all the better!”

Perks and Benefits

Why join us?

At ThinkData Works, we offer so much more than a great job. Our range of benefits are designed to prioritize your mental and physical health, and offer flexibility to suit you and your family's needs. We give you the resources to help you thrive at and outside of work.

Stock options

chevron
  • In addition to competitive salary, full time permanent employees are eligible to receive stock options. We think everyone should have the opportunity to be a part of our growth.

Vacation & personal days

chevron
  • Work-life balance is essential to our team’s success, and we think that fixed-PTO plans are better at empowering employees to take time off than frequently under-used ‘unlimited’ policies. Our generous and flexible vacation days (as well as personal and sick days) encourage employees to disconnect from work so they come back feeling refreshed.

Winter office closures & summer hours

chevron
  • We like to celebrate, which means giving the team extra time off to do so! Our offices close for a week over the winter holidays to ensure everyone is able to disconnect and spend time with family and friends. Our Summer Hours are also super popular - we have half-day Fridays and extra-long weekends to ensure we have that time to soak up the sun over the weekend. These days off don’t count against vacation or personal days, so everyone wins!

Flexible & hybrid work

chevron
  • ThinkData operates in a flexible, hybrid working environment which means employees have a lot of choice when deciding where and when they're most comfortable and productive. Depending on your role, you can work from your home, or come into the office - whatever works for you and your team! If you come into the office, we’ll even help you get there with a monthly Uber allowance for commuting. Prefer to work from home? When you join, we’ll ship you your MacBook and any additional equipment your role requires, and we have a WFH fund to help cover some other home office essentials you may need or want to make your workspace comfortable and productive. Our core working hours are 10 am to 4 pm, so whether you’re an early bird or you prefer to sleep until there’s actually light outside, we’re flexible!

  • Our Toronto office near Spadina & Dundas has lots of natural light, plants, bike storage, LOTS of snacks, a pool table, and plenty of space for collaboration.

  • Our London office is at a dog-friendly WeWork near Bishopsgate & London Wall, complete with outdoor space, showers, an event space, and our own office to get focused work done.

Health benefits

chevron
  • Our top-tier health benefits package kicks in on your first day (we waive the typical 3-month probationary waiting period!), and it covers premium medical, dental, and vision coverage for employees and their families. Our plan reimburses most eligible benefits expenses at 100% up to the annual maximum, which is $500 in most paramedical categories. To ensure that our benefits plan is flexible for different needs, we have an additional $500 Health Spending Account (HSA) that gets replenished every year.

Paid parental leave

chevron
  • Our top-up program ensures that new parents can take the time off of work they need while minimizing the financial impact of a leave. And we believe that all parents should have paid time off to bond with a newborn and adjust to life with your little one, so all full-time permanent employees regardless of gender are eligible for 18 weeks of paid parental leave. Our plan covers 6 weeks @ topped up to 100% of salary and an additional 12 weeks @ 70%.

Career development

chevron
  • We believe in informal mentorship and formal training. Most roles work closely with members of the Executive team who are happy to provide guidance and share their journey with you, and help coach you on yours. In addition to lunch-and-learn workshops, regular 1:1s, and a formal performance management process, you can take advantage of our annual $500 Learning Allowance to further advance your knowledge in a relevant area of professional development.

ThinkData Works Abroad program

chevron
  • Full-time permanent employees can apply to work outside of their home city/country for up to 90 days in a 12-month period. Our hybrid culture allows employees to feel connected, included, and empowered, no matter where they are.

Annual retreat

chevron
  • We’re a Canadian company that likes to enjoy the outdoors together. Every year the team heads north for a 3-day retreat to chat about all things ThinkData. We use this time to connect, collaborate, and of course, have fun!

In the past we've had co-ops work on our Front-end, Back-end, Platform, and DevOps teams. They perform a lot of hands-on work that is highly integrated within their team, but have contributed individually in significant ways. In the past student have:

  • implemented our custom metadata management features, which is now a core feature of our product offering
  • completely overhauling the JSON and XML consumers in our ingest pipeline to improve performance and accuracy
  • created a responsive interface for our open data portal discovery toolset
  • created our user sign on service with multi-factor authentication, which currently powers every platform feature
