Remote @ Vidyard

As a video centric organization, Vidyard mastered the art of remote work long before the pandemic forced businesses to adapt. So, whether you are located close to one of our collaboration spaces in Vancouver, BC, & Kitchener, ON, or if home is anywhere else in Canada, you will not only be an integral part of the team, you’ll feel like an integral part of the team.

In order to ensure an enjoyable work experience for all employees, Vidyard is dedicated to ensuring all Vidyardians have an opportunity to:

  • Level up their home office/workspace, 
  • Socialize meaningfully within teams as well as across the organization, 
  • Enjoy a flexible work schedule (We know your time is valuable! Own your work in a way that best suits your lifestyle)

We believe that working remotely shouldn’t cause any barriers to a great employee experience, so from onboarding to day to day operations, when you work remotely at Vidyard your colleagues and leaders are only as far as a *virtual* tap on the shoulder away.

We thank all applicants for your interest in Vidyard. Only those applicants selected for an interview will be contacted.  Agency calls will not be accepted.

Vidyard is an equal opportunity employer. Applicants who require reasonable accommodation to complete the application and/or interview process should notify the Talent Acquisition Team.
