Join the Frontier

We're a team that's motivated by our vision to strengthen the cause-based world through efficient & effective fundraising best practices. We want to revolutionize the way cause-based organizations engage their audience.

 
 

At Frontier, collaboration happens on all fronts—on each touch point from concept to execution. We value our respective skill sets and abilities, and often help one another to sharpen our skills to understand how to best achieve our goals, and the goals of our clients.

We live in Victoria, BC and work nationally. Together, we work hard, we laugh a lot, we brainstorm nonstop, we send hundreds of Slack messages a week, and we give the best high-fives in town. We love our work, and we want you to love yours too. We’re always looking for weird, smart, and independent thinkers to join the team.

Frontier is different. Are you?

 

We are committed to our people.

Your Health

We encourage our staff to to be healthy and active. To that end, at Frontier we offer a Recreation Credit to subsidize the cost of pricey gym memberships or gear for your favourite activity. We also offer competitive wages and are committed to offering a living wage ($18+) to even the most entry level of our full-time staff. No more Mr. Noodles for you.

Your Time

We understand that you have a life outside of work and that life will sometimes take priority over your commitment to Frontier (*gasp*). We offer extremely flexible work schedules, generous vacation time (even in the first year of employment), sick days, and a full time work week of 30 hours. No excuses for missing your kid’s recital.

Your Philanthropy

Frontier is in the business of empowering charities by helping to change the way Canadians spend their money. We support employees to give by matching 50 cents per dollar that an employee donates through Chimp—up to $500 per year—to give you more money to donate to your favourite causes.

Your Tools

At Frontier we work with top-of-the-line equipment. But it takes more than tech to keep a team happy. We have a bi-weekly delivery of healthy snacks, a never ending supply of craft coffee (from one of our local roasters), and tacos every Tuesday.

Your Growth

Whether we’re attending conferences, doing internal apprenticeships, taking online courses, or some personal professional reading, we are constantly learning and improving. We’ll do whatever we can to help you do the same. To that end, we also have an annual Staff Retreat to pause, reflect, and set goals for the year ahead.

The Frontier Office

In 2014 we moved into our beautiful open office at Rock Bay Square. We spend our days surrounded by exposed cedar beams, natural light, and the best coworkers in the world, just steps from The Coffee Lab, and a short walk from the best pies in town. We’re also serious about celebrations.


 

To maintain our standard of excellence and hire people who are as passionate about their work as they are about finding the perfect GIF, we have a multi-step hiring process.

Don’t be intimidated (or do).
