''What kind of people do you hire?''

First of all, let us be clear: we will always prioritize people from minority groups at equivalent skills and experience. That being said, here are our five social standards that guide us in our mission and hiring process:

1- Be Committed

We're all on the same team and we share a common vision for a better world. Building a better world takes time and energy, so we have to make commitments—to our colleagues, our clients, and our planet.

2- Stay Curious

Our 9 to 5 doesn’t define who we are. But who we are, defines our 9 to 5. We cultivate our passions, we seek discovery, and we stay open to the world. Keeping our fire alive is a full-time job.

3- Think Bold

We don’t do average. Our ideas are meant to hack the status quo and challenge brands to dream about what they can become. Forget impossible, because to change the world, you have to be crazy enough to believe you can.

4- Speak Real

We like our stories real and our facts checked. No B.S. Our culture is inclusive and our collaborations based on integrity and honesty. Ego is not your amigo.

5- Rise Together

Our collaboration exists above titles and our trust in one another is more than just task descriptions. We work together with more empathy than criticism, more vulnerability than ego, and more listening than talking. Because 1+1=3.

''And what are the perks?''

All agencies offer pretty much the same thing, right? A good salary, nice offices, decent insurance coverage, etc. Of course, we have all of that, but that's not what sets us apart. What makes us different is that we truly care about our employees and we walk the talk. (We actually won a prize for that!)

We are very flexible with remote working and vacation time. And we understand how work-family balance is important; there were 5 new babies this year at Republik!

We have a beautiful office in downtown Montreal, but we also have an office in Tremblant to make sure people stay connected with nature. We have online yoga classes, a cash-back program for those who use public transportation, lunch-and-learn sessions every month, and one big offsite event every year with inspiring guest speakers and team-building activities. Oh, and everyone gets Friday afternoons off in the summer to enjoy the beautiful weather!

But most importantly, our team is what makes Republik different. Everybody brings their passions and convictions to work, so that means you’ll always find a camp, ski, bike, or beer buddy! Or someone to talk to about your vegan lifestyle or mental health.

There's so much more, but you'll have to come see for yourself!

Hiring process

  • This is a full-time job offer, which starts as soon as possible.
  • Salary based on experience.
  • Only selected candidates will be contacted.
