These core values drive our interaction with each team member and our clients with the vision of producing Canada's best accounting experience by providing simple and effective solutions for small businesses.

Who are you? 

We look for new team members that have the following characteristics: 

  • Driven to strive for perfection, but knowing you'll never meet it
  • Passionate about client experience
  • Easy going and can get along with just about anyone
  • Will take accountability very seriously and own up to your mistakes
  • Brings solutions to the table, not just the problem

Our hiring process

We don't accept candidates that only submit their resume, so if you're going to apply then be prepared to jump through some hoops. We want to make sure you're interested in working at Blueprint and fit with our culture.

Here are the steps that you'll complete once you submit your resume: 

  1. Submit your resume (congrats, you completed the first step if you submitted already)
  2. You'll receive an email asking you to answer 5 questions and submit a Loom recording of yourself (instructions are in the email)
  3. We'll reach out to you to set up a first interview if we think you'd be an awesome team member
  4. Depending on the number of great candidates we get for any role, we may or may not have more interviews
  5. You may be asked to pass a background check and submit references (but only if we ask) 
  6. If we make you an offer, once we agree on everything we'll set a start date, and that's when the fun begins
