  • At Legible, we strive for diversity and inclusion to create a genuinely healthy and equitable workplace for everyone. We are committed to the ongoing process of building a culture of respect at every level, ensuring that everyone feels safe, supported, and valued.

    Let's be real : employee handbooks always talk a lot about diversity and inclusion, but in the actual day-to-day, employees knowingly or unknowingly indulge in microaggressions toward BIPOC colleagues, claim that sexism goes both ways, and so on.

    At Legible, we know that oppression is systemic and structural. Cishet privilege, non-disabled privilege, white privilege, male privilege these are real and have consequences for people.

    We're aware that being marginalized at work causes real distress, especially when accountability doesn't seem to exist.

    How is Legible going to dismantle the machine and what makes us different? It starts here; everyone has an opportunity to join Legible and make a difference - our hiring process is fair and equitable.

    As a company, we will be devoted to providing regular training and info sessions to our employees to ensure that we are aware of our privileges and will work to address microaggressions on a daily basis.

    One look at will show how committed we are to diversity and inclusivity. We are a company that will beautifully entwine, celebrates and support diverse cultures and varying beliefs.

    A few years ago, an interviewer asked Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of the Broadway smash-hit Hamilton, why his cast was so diverse.

    Miranda replied, "That's just what happens when you go looking for the very best people!" At Legible, we couldn't agree more!

    Legible recognizes the right for human beings to self-identify. You are valued, safe, and supported.

    To be considered for this position, you must be eligible to work in Canada and pass background checks

    Compensation for this role is $75,000 - $85,000 per year - salary is dependent on experience.
