Posted 3 days ago

Only considering candidates eligible to work in Toronto, Canada ⚠️

At Sensei Labs, we imagine a future where people love their work, unencumbered by traditional work tools,processes, and office location.

Our team makes use of modern, award-winning digital tools to orchestrate their work and collaborate. We thoughtfully choose our work orchestration stack to enable all team members to work in a way that helps them to be most productive without being cumbersome.

Four things every Sensei LOVES:

Four-day work week. It doesn’t mean you have to work 10hr days for four days a week. For us, it means we’re consistently implementing ways of improving our productivity so that we can do our work in four days instead of five. We believe four-day work weeks foster a culture where work-life balance and mental health and wellness are priorities. Our team loves it, and we hope you will too!

Work from Anywhere (WFA) policy. Our Senseis can work from anywhere in the world as long as they have a laptop and a decent internet connection. We’re happy to be breaking the stereotype that work just gets done by people showing up at an office.

Living our SENSEI values. Everything we do at Sensei Labs is guided by our SENSEI Values: Selfless, Empathetic, Nimble, Skilled, Entrepreneurial, and Integrity. From this job description to our hiring process to promotions, we live these values every day.

"No Email" policy. At Sensei Labs, we use our own Conductor platform and Microsoft Teams to communicate internally rather than sending unnecessary emails.

We're constantly growing and looking for the next team member to join us in building lasting success for our customers as we help them transform transformation to thrive in the Enterprise Orchestration Era.
