What you need to know

Core Values
Interview Process
We choose incredibly challenging and engaging work, experimenting with new technologies that push the boundaries of what’s possible.
Results drive brilliant people. Axioms don't waste time looking busy: we optimize for impact, not effort.
To fit in here, you have to stand out everywhere else. Diversity is our secret weapon for attacking problems from multiple angles.
We hire people with diverse strengths, but one is non-negotiable: the desire to constantly improve, professionally and personally.
1. Apply
We’ll start off by reviewing your resume, cover letter, and relevant social media links. We’re curious about you, so be sure to include your LinkedIn, GitHub, portfolio, and any other information that showcase your skills and interests.
2. Chat with us
We’ll email you to schedule a meeting. Tell us what what you’re passionate about, your accomplishments, and the kind of challenges you’re looking for. We want to know the depth of your knowledge as they relate to the role.
3. Show us what you got
We may ask to see samples of your work. Depending on the position you’re applying for, these can be writing, code or design samples. We may ask you to complete a take home assignment that will help us understand if we are a match.
4. Collaborate
Collaboration, feedback, and discussion are key to all positions at Axiom Zen. As such, we may invite you for an elbow-to-elbow session with other team members to see if we all work well together.
5. Meet the team
After interviewing with a few Axioms (and likely our founder as well), we’ll review everyone’s feedback before requesting references.
6. References and offer
We want to hear from people who have worked with you. Ideally, that feedback comes from previous supervisors or managers. Once we’re confident we have a fit, we’ll send out an official job offer!
Building agile teams who thrive in a distributed hierarchy is complicated alchemy. We pride ourselves on finding perfect fits, but that collaborative hiring process can take 3-6 weeks. Be sure to let us know of any deadlines, and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Benefits & Perks

Active Professional Development
Team members have access to a Professional Development budget, separate from compensation, to be spent on conferences, classes, books, and other resources to expand their skill set and professional growth.
Leadership opportunities
The structure of our team allows leadership roles to develop organically. With dialogue as a motor, our organization fosters collaboration and new challenges; quiet complacency is never an option.
Speaker Travel Budget
All our team members have the opportunity to become thought leaders. We have a policy to cover travel and accommodations for speaking engagements.
“Live the Brand” Program
Time outside of the office helps us think outside the box, and using great products helps us build them better. We were one of the first to try Google Glass, the Oculus Rift, Myo, and many more.
Flexible Parental Leave Policies
We understand the importance and demands of a growing family. In addition to state, provincial, and federal leave allowances, parents on the team have the flexibility to work from home or take days off when family needs to come first.
Flexible Time Off & Remote Work Policy
We have a high standard for impact but we insist on work-life harmony. Minimum of 15 off days every year, with no hard limit. As we accomplish our goals, time off is more than a must.
Commuter Reimbursement
We cover public transport to work and back. If you bike to work, great! We set aside $1000/year for bike maintenance.
Holistic initiatives
From aromatherapy to yoga, we integrate our comprehensive approach to well-being into the ZenDen day-to-day.
Fitness reimbursements
We reimburse for health-related benefits like gym memberships and personal training.
Expanded insurance
Axiom Zen provides health, life and AD&D insurance as well as premium vision, dental, and extended health benefits. We feature reimbursement for holistic health expenses such as acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, and more.
Top-Line Equipment
Access to an Apple laptop, large second monitor, personal gadget budget, and more. Models dependent upon needs and department function.
Company-Paid Phone and Plan
Top-line company smartphone of your choice in addition to a paid voice and data plan.
“Live the Brand” Products
Every team member receives a generous equipment budget to try new gadgets, tools, platforms, and products. This includes new wearables, internet-of-things gadgets, etc.
Zen Workspace
Dog-friendly, welcoming of children, and crafted for comfort – our workspace is constantly improving to help our Axioms reach the most creative and productive version of themselves.
Staying together
Once a week we sit down to eat together. The team lunch is one of our many traditions that help us to tighten the bonds between Axioms that work on unrelated projects.
