How we work
Our mission is to help everyone achieve financial freedom, no matter who they are or how much they have. We’re reimagining what it means to manage your money by making simple, smart and affordable financial products for everyone.
Backed by some of the biggest financial firms and tech investors, we’ve received $375M+ in investments. We're a “unicorn” now and growing faster than ever. Our team of over 600 employees works collaboratively to build the best possible experience for our clients, and then make it even better — we ship fast, then improve it. Everyone is a maker and an owner: that means no layer of bureaucracy or red tape, and rigorously prioritizing to avoid meeting-packed days. We even have a dedicated meeting-free day each week, so everyone has the time to think, create and innovate, without interruptions.
Output is more important than face time, so where you choose to work is up to you — as long as you have internet access, you can work from anywhere in Canada. Full-time employees also have the flexibility to work internationally for up to 90 days per year with our 90 Days Away program. When it’s safe to do so, we’ll reopen our office in downtown Toronto and you’ll be able choose your working style — remote, in-office, or a mix of both.
We make onboarding simple. When you join the Wealthsimple team, we ship you your MacBook, adapter, and Bose headphones, along with any additional equipment your role requires. And as of day one, you’ll have access to a wellness credit to cover any other home office essentials you may need or want to make your workspace comfortable and productive.
