Work Environment

Monadical is a fully-remote software consultancy that prides ourselves on maintaining a healthy work/life balance and supportive, remote working culture. We strive to build a diverse, friendly, and knowledgeable team, and expose ourselves to a variety of industries and learning environments. We work with a wide range of clients on medium/large web development projects, ranging from 3-12+ months. The industries we’ve worked with are varied, from finance to biomedicine and neuroscience. Most of our clients find us via word-of-mouth or by reading our blog posts and watching our employee talks.

Our goal as a company is to build up a team of good people, with the knowledge and resources needed to invest in the projects that we’re truly passionate about. We work with clients whose missions we believe in, and actively decline clients we don’t think are a good fit with our work style or code of ethics.

We try to build our company structure to ensure employees have lots of freedom to choose the projects they enjoy most, and the power to have a real impact on product decisions and company direction. We also have a strong set of company principles that drive who we work with and how we maintain our culture. The company principles handbook is a collaborative, public effort and is editable by any employee by submitting a pull request.
Some perks of working with us include:

  • Work from home (we’re fully remote! Office space is available to Montreal-based applicants)
  • Flexible working hours
  • Six weeks of paid vacation
  • Competitive salary
  • Time and support for self-improvement/blogging/talks/side-projects/FOSS contribution
  • Strong cultural emphasis on individual autonomy and impact on company direction

Monadical is looking for a Content Creator / Science Writer!

The candidate selected will be responsible for helping to conceptualize and develop video capsules and other media content related to science and technology.

For candidates based in Montreal, we have an optional office available for use.

Part-time and full-time candidates will be considered.
