Local Logic is passionate about growth and we don’t expect you to know it all right out of the gate. We care that you have mastered the basics and have a keen desire to grow professionally, learn new things, and strive to do your best work always.
This role is based out of our vibrant office in the Mile End neighbourhood of Montreal. We are committed to building an inclusive environment that allows everyone to do their best work, and to that end we are proud to offer flexible working hours and work-from-home options, because we understand that our employees are human first and have commitments outside the office.
The Local Logic team are a group of driven, growth minded individuals - we value people who take initiative, try new things, and live to learn. We like to debate ideas, from the tough decisions to the “is it a sandwich?” debate that seems to grip the lunch table at least once a quarter. We are here to support and inspire one another, and to continue to push our collective work to the next level.
Local Logic is proud to offer a comprehensive benefits package to its employees. We offer all full time employees a great health insurance plan, which includes $1500 annual coverage for paramedical services like massage, acupuncture, nutrition, and naturopathy. We care about our employees’ health, so we cover 100% of premiums for our employees. Additionally, Local Logic covers the cost of membership to Dialogue, a telemedicine service for our employees and their family members.
We also provide employees with a $250 discretionary health and wellness credit. In the past, employees have used this credit to purchase everything from noise cancelling headphones to fitness watches or yoga memberships!
To support our company value of being Growth Oriented, employees are given a $500 annual professional development credit, as well as 8 hours of professional development time per month. Take the time to develop a new skill, read up on the industry, attend a workshop or conference, or take a short course!
How to Apply
Please send us a CV and cover letter tailored to this position. You may have heard a rumour that nobody really reads cover letters and we’re here to dispel that myth - we LOVE reading your cover letters! For us, cover letters are a chance to hear directly from you why you think you’d be the best fit for this role. Don’t just list off your CV, this is your chance to tell us why that short stint as a performer would make you the perfect salesperson, or how your experience working in a totally different industry would allow you to bring a fresh new perspective to our development team. Your cover letter is a chance to tell us a story - YOUR story - and to convince us that we’d be crazy not to talk to you.
We are accepting applications on a rolling basis until the role is filled. After an application is submitted, we’ll take about two weeks to process applications and get back to you about next steps. We begin our hiring process with a screening call to chat more about the role, your background and experience, and to talk about what it’s like to work at Local Logic. After that, you’ll meet a few more team members, and if all goes well we’ll invite you to spend an afternoon or morning at the office with our team.
We look forward to meeting you and hearing how you plan to contribute to Local Logic!
