    Avoiding Design Disasters 101

    We live in an intensely visual-design driven world. And yet many budding designers, sizzling start-ups and even established companies still disappoint their users with their criminal approach to basic design principles. The truth is that your website, your app, and your documents are read by people who don't have time to navigate their way through dishevelled mazes of poor design.

  • "Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done" - Agile development. Here's how formality is changing the game: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vIGiT

    "Agile" shouldn't mean "Informal"

    Almost 15 years ago a bunch of like-minded folks sat down together in Utah and began discussing software defects. Not defects in the actual software people were developing, but defects in the processes and paradigms being applied to facilitate the development process. The result of those discussions was the release of a document called: The Agile Manifesto.

Myplanet – Why Work For Us?

Myplanet is based on one simple idea: re-energize how people connect with technology in the workplace.

We imagine a world where the technology you interact with, the tools, programs and online experiences you use - actually energize your work experience.

This is what fuels us.

Since 2006 we've partnered with the world’s leading telecommunications providers and workplaces to design, build and orchestrate just that.

We're an eclectic group of bright minds from all walks of life.  We believe in diversity and have created an inclusive environment for all of our team members.  We believe in skills mastery, humanity, 

We enjoy solving difficult problems, working hard and learning about cool ideas - but also love to have fun.  Learning sessions (think photography, craft beer & cider tastings, virtual reality to name a few) ping-pong battles, archery tag and cottage weekends are just a few of the many ways we love to unwind and enjoy.

Interested in learning more? Reach out or apply today.

Here's what working at Myplanet is all about....

A message from our CEO, Jason Cottrell


Hello potential Myplaneteer,

Thanks for taking a look at our profile.  I wanted to give you a bit of insight into our commitment here at Myplanet.

Every day we come to work with one aim: to make the experiences of everyday life more enjoyable.

Right now, most of our time is spent improving the products we all use at work. We’re not out to create the next sexy, cool app. We’re more interested in tackling tough challenges that have a real impact. We come to the office each day ready to make another part of the workplace more useful, efficient or delightful for tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, often millions of people worldwide.

If you wonder why you haven't heard of us, it's because we aren't that flashy. You will find some very cool work here, but you won't see us bragging about it. In five years we have delivered impressive revenue and rapid valuation growth, but we don’t let that go to our heads. Instead, we pride ourselves on the experience we deliver to our customers, users and employees.

We love cross-functional individuals—unicorns, we call them—and we hold this as a critical skill in completing our work. We will invest in you as a person, as a professional, and as part of a cross-functional team. We invest the most in those who are here for the long haul. We need committed individuals to help us re-energize how the world works (literally.)

We will ask you to participate in making Myplanet better, too. We want you to become involved in the discussion, to always be ready to roll up your sleeves and be part of the solution.

Lastly, we will challenge you to live by our values: Focus, Innovation, Mastery, Humanity and Collaboration. And on the days where we don't do the same (hey, nobody is perfect...) we ask you to call us out on that. We will wake up the next day doubly motivated to stay true to who we are.

These principles may seem simple, but they deliver consistent results. If this seems like your cup of tea, now is the time to apply. Take a look at our open positions, perks and employee reviews.

Here’s to building a better Myplanet!

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Myplanet full-time (More than a year)


    - awesome culture and atmosphere - no process for the sake of process, if any thing exists with no good reason, it will be removed - everyone is nice to everyone else, no interest conflict between any 2 roles - encourages learning and knowledge sharing, no one is holding anything back - everyone takes responsibility and ownership of their own work - always recognizes everyone for their awesome work, no one feels ignored - flexible hours, you can just discuss your needs with your team members and no upper "management" is involved (do we even have management team???) - DOGS DOGS DOGS!!!


    - the construction happening outside had been driving people crazy for almost a year, but it finally seems to be settling down - company is currently trying to make a smooth transition between a traditional agency to being product centric, so there is a gap between the product team and the rest of the company. It's very easy to hop between roles and teams, but the experience will be different, so make sure you mention which part you would like to be working on

    Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Markham, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Myplanet (Markham, ON (Canada)).


    Phone interview, which lead to an in person interview which included a Myers-Briggs test, and a problem solving excise. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. Got a vague answer about not getting an offer, and after some back and forth it turned out that the Myers-Briggs test was the deciding factor.
