Working at Lixar: Make an Impact, Find Your Purpose

Lixar I.T. Tech

Are you looking to take the next step in your career? We’ve all been there. It can be difficult to find a place that feels like the right fit – a place where the work is engaging and meaningful, a place with a collaborative and balanced work environment, a place where you’re valued. Ultimately, we’re all looking for the same thing: a place that lets you live where you want, with a lifestyle that works for you.

At Lixar, we’ve worked hard to make our company that kind of place. Our work is varied and has a real impact across the public and private sectors. Our teams are our strength, and we value those who choose to work here. We have a strong company culture that emphasizes community, healthy living, and fun. And most of all, the people at Lixar are just really smart and kind – our work allows us to constantly learn, teach, and share knowledge on exciting new and data-driven tech. 

Here are a few things that come with joining the Lixar team:

Meaningful Work

We work on projects that are innovative, impactful, and make a difference. Lixar offers room to grow, to learn, and to teach. Our team members are valued and essential to our success.  

Company Culture

Join a tight-knit and welcoming community. Happy hours, board game nights, and the occasional company breakfast or lunch bring us together and allow us to connect. We also connect with community by supporting Kids Help Phone and the BGCO

Flexible Work Environment 

Find your balance with a flexible work environment, and the freedom to work remotely, and attend to personal and family commitments.

Socially Responsible

We do our part to support our community – we sponsor Kids Help Phone, the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa, emerging Canadian artists, and we have programs in place to reduce our carbon footprint.

Vibrant Offices

Work in the beautiful open spaces of our Ottawa and Halifax offices, complete with regular music sets and beer on tap! 

Healthy Living

Regular yoga sessions, walk and run events, and stationary or road bikes on-site allow us to take a “body break” whenever we need a boost. Our healthy living ambassador Maddy Mackenzie keeps us healthy and accountable!

Lixar on Music

Music is a huge part of the culture here – our HQ is music-themed, and we support festivals like HPX, Megaphono, Osheaga, as well as the Polaris Music Prize

We’re growing with our talented teams. Our offices are located in Halifax, Ottawa, Toronto – but we’re not bound by these locations. We want you to live where you want and with a lifestyle that works for you. We’re proud to be Canadian – so if you love the ocean, live there. Love the city? Live there. Love the National Capital and the Gatineau Hills? Live there.

Our teams are inclusive and collaborative. With many cultures and walks of life, we want the best team at the table to deliver the best solutions for our partners, clients, and community.
