This is Humi.
Refusing to accept the status quo of managing people operations using spreadsheets or clunky HRIS platforms, we saw the need to revolutionize the HR industry. So, we built a solution that is supportive, uncomplicated, and most importantly, people-focused. We’re building a company that believes people perform better when they’re happier, and we’re empowering our clients to do the same.
Being able to bring your authentic self to work and feeling like your thoughts and opinions are heard is one of my favourite things here. The wellness and culture is like nothing else I have experienced and the sense of collaboration and community in our remote first environment is so strong. As a person who comes from a diverse background, Humi's EDI initiatives make me feel proud to be working here.
The best part about working at Humi is the learning opportunities. As a Data Analyst, I get to touch data coming from all of Humi's different products and work with an awesome Data team.
The culture is amazing. People are encouraged to speak their minds and have the freedom to be themselves. I also really like the fact that everyone can take serious ownership and pride in their work.
There's a real focus on individual wellness. Our leaders are clear in saying that we are encouraged to take care of our wellbeing so that we can bring our most authentic selves to work.
Our Engineering team here at Humi has been a great source of learning and career growth for me! I’ve been able to work with many different aspects of engineering and business, and feel that I’m continuously improving. To top it off, there’s an amazing work culture here that encourages a good work life balance!
I am excited about going to work every day. Great company to work at! They really care about the employees and it’s a fun atmosphere. The best part is having really great colleagues who are creative and always looking to help you succeed.
Both Humi and I can achieve greater success because we are inspired to, and focused on, solving the same problems. This parallel between work and self has led to deeper connections in my work relationships, and increased productivity and that really is the best!
Being around the most talented engineers who I can learn from and grow with, having a clear career path, and endless support from the team are just three reasons why I am proud of being on Humi's Engineering team.
Where everybody knows your name!" :) It's a culture that cares and is close-knit. We definitely are one big Humigo family.
Empowering teams to solve customer problems in new and innovative ways is one of the most exciting parts of the job. As a team, we’re able to iterate quickly and ship often because our team embraces new technologies and practices. We believe in enabling autonomy across teams and creating opportunities for feedback to ensure new perspectives and collaborative outcomes.
Everyone believes in our mission, vision and values, and are dedicated to one another to do their best each day. Humi also gives you a great degree of control and freedom to take on special projects to improve existing processes and procedures, or create new ones!
Humi was founded in 2016 and started as a simple cloud-based web app that stored employee data. Six years later, thanks to the tremendous support from customers and investors, we became the leading all-in-one HR solution for Canadian businesses by supporting them in three other key areas – employee benefits, business insurance, and payroll.
We believe companies have the responsibility to take good care of their people. That’s why we exist. We exist to make the lives of businesses and their employees easier, so they can take good care of one another.
Give it up for our CEO! After spending years working at an investment bank in the midst of the last financial crisis, Simon shifted into tech in 2012 to found OneLocal before co-founding Humi in 2016. Through both businesses, Simon has focused on everything from sales to finance, and spends his time navigating changes and challenges that support the growth of Humi.
Let's hear it for our CCO! Many call him a sales king – Drew is the bread and butter of Humi’s sales strategy. Drew has now turned his efforts to elevating other key departments including our customer experience, marketing, sales, benefits, and insurance teams. When he’s not getting companies through the door at Humi, you can find Drew spending time reading about HR, people, and strategy.
Former dentist turned startup powerhouse, this pres’ journey into tech looked a little different than others. Between co-founding Instaradio in 2012 to helping create Humi in 2015, Kevin worked as a dentist for one day a week into the first six months of Humi’s company history. When he’s not overseeing, Kevin loves spending time thinking about the future of work.
All things tech-whiz, Matt loves to build. From co-founding JamCam, the app that would pave the way for the social media giant TikTok in 2013, to building Humi’s very first version, Matt is constantly working to create solutions through tech.
Equity, diversity, and inclusion at Humi
At Humi, equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) are top of mind, which is why we’ve worked on carving out and maintaining an EDI strategy for our workplace. Our commitment is to recognizing the differences that make up our people, appreciating how those differences shape their perspectives, and giving people a safe space to be who they are as individuals.
We encourage Humigos to bring their authentic selves to the table every day. Our goal is to continue improving our workplace to be an equitable and diverse one, reflective of the world we work in.
