How we work
We believe that access to financial freedom is a fundamental human right. Our mission is to make sure everyone has the opportunity to exercise that right by making simple, sophisticated, and affordable financial products.
Backed by some of the biggest names in finance and tech, we're growing quickly and globally. We work collaboratively to build the best possible experience for our clients. You won't find meeting-packed days or red tape, and we don't over-engineer our product or processes. Everyone is a maker, and we take things from start to finish quickly.
We're committed to building an actively inclusive environment, where everyone can be themselves and know their voices will be heard. And we don't accept the status quo. If you want to fix or improve something — go for it! We go above and beyond and encourage each other to do the best work of our lives.
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.
