Accountability means having the courage to hold ourselves and each other to our commitments. We want to work alongside those who aren’t afraid to speak up about a missed deadline, but know how to do so with diplomacy and tact. At Think Shift, we call teammates up — never out.
Stewardship means accepting our responsibility to protect, preserve and enhance all that has been entrusted to us. It’s about personal ownership.
Transparency means elevating the truth without fear of offence or disagreement. We want to work alongside others who have the courage to say what needs to be said, and who do so compassionately.
There is very little we can do individually that cannot be done better collaboratively.
We trust our people to meet their commitments. Period. No hand holding, micro-managing or clock-punching required. Enjoy flexible start/end times, the ability to work remotely or from home and the freedom to manage your schedule without judgment.
No matter where you’re working, we want to give you tools to help you feel your best. We offer comprehensive health, vision and dental coverage, as well as affordable virtual counselling and medication delivery through our group benefits plan. And because looking after your physical and mental health is most important, we offer unlimited sick and personal time for all employees.
We believe that diversity of thought is the key source of growth and value creation. Diversity of thought is greatly enhanced through diversity of contributors. We strongly encourage diversity in all areas, including but not limited to gender, age, background, race, ethnicity, geographic location and other factors.
Growth is not for everyone. It is a great opportunity, but it is not optional. We create the environment and opportunity for growth as part of our stewardship responsibility. Managers actively protect, preserve and enhance the growth of their direct reports. All Think Shifters meet with their managers biweekly to discuss their growth plans and opportunities to advance their careers. Additionally, all Think Shifters are given the opportunity to take part in professional development and leadership training.
When you have employees in three different time zones (and counting), staying connected isn’t a benefit, it’s a necessity. We host staff huddles every Monday and Friday, and use Zoom and Teams daily to meet, collaborate and share funny GIFs. You’re welcome to virtually join any of our internal committees and are encouraged to contribute and make your mark on the organization.
The future of work is shifting and so are we. As one of our core values, transparency is essential to the way we operate. We value open, honest communication, and we aren’t afraid to have the hard conversations. We are also fully transparent with the health of our business, and share our company financials, vision and goals, and operating plan every month at our all-staff meetings.
We trust our people to do great work no matter where they are. That’s why we’ve embraced a remote culture that encourages our staff to work wherever works best for them – the lake, at home, or on the go. As long as commitments are met and there’s access to Wi-Fi, you’re good to go.See job postings
We know talented people are everywhere — and they’re not always looking for a full-time gig. Whether it’s a contract project, a specialized skillset we don’t have in-house or just general overflow, Think Shift provides exceptional opportunities to do great work while growing your business.Become a partner
The best thing about working at Think Shift is having the flexibility to manage my life outside of work, and an environment that makes me want to come to the office. I've made impactful friendships with colleagues and enjoy the ways we collaborate and encourage each other. On days when life gets in the way, I know that I can take the time I need without guilt or criticism.

My favourite part about working at Think Shift is that we give each other a lot of trust. If you have a good rationale for the decisions you're making, your voice will be heard and your decisions will be taken seriously, no matter your experience level. That also means that if we win, we win as a team, and if we lose, no individual person takes the fall. We can be more creative when we have the support of a team at our back.
