Why you should work here:
A strong set of values guides our decision-making at every level. During your interview, push us to provide examples of our values in action.

CampBrain is not a start-up. Founded in 1994, we are a stable, profitable, privately held company. We have a proven track-record, a viable product, and loyal paying customers. Your work will be valued, it will be important, and it will matter.
You’ll be working with and helping 1300+ camps across North America to run their camps successfully. You’ll work with a talented team. We are smart, funny, empathetic, kind, and we care about the quality of our product and service. We have interesting challenges and there is a lot to learn. One million campers will register through our system this year resulting in almost a billion dollars of e-commerce. Operating at this scale raises unique issues for us and our clients, and demands high-quality support and problem solving. You can work from home. We have all been working from home for more than a year, and many of us will continue to do so even after the office opens again. The office is cool.
Should you choose to work in the office, we have 8000 square feet in an old brick-and-beam building that used to be the Heintzman Piano Factory. The space is open and bright with lots of natural light.
The office is 1 km east of the King Subway Station in Downtown Toronto. The neighbourhood is in the middle of a vibrant renewal. We’re near coffee shops, restaurants, the Distillery District, the St. Lawrence Market, and 20-metres from a great independent espresso bar. Company culture and events.
We are a close-knit team building a product and company we love. The people we work with and our office culture are incredibly important to us and we work hard at it.
