Where are you located?

Beanworks HQ is located at the heart of Gastown, easily accessible by transit, bike, or foot. Our team is sometimes subjected to the “Bean 15” – the struggle is real when it comes to eating all the delicious culinary options that surround the office. We also have remote team members from coast-to-coast in Victoria and Montreal.

Describe the culture at your company.

Bean culture is guided by our core values including Teamwork, Never Give Up, Build Strong Relationships, Beantrepreneurism, Stay Healthy, Exceed Expectations, and Keep Business Fun. We also have a very strong emphasis on providing employment opportunities to women in tech.

What does your leadership team (and company as a whole) do to support/grow that culture?

Our team is very focused on bringing our values into everything we do. From our daily huddles where we update and check in with each other to our close-knit relationships with our clients we are always striving to provide the best product and experience – and we do that by working collectively towards our goals, everyday.

When your employees talk about your company, what do they brag about?

Our management team is 85% female which demonstrates our true commitment to helping women break into the tech industry. Our central location and fully stocked kitchen is also a big hit with the team.

Describe your most recent achievement, milestone, reason for bragging rights.

We are now the only Canadian cloud-based AP automation solution that provides document-centric workflow from procurement to electronic payment – both domestically and cross border. We just finished our most successful quarter to date and there is plenty is store for the rest of 2016!

What kinds of people are you looking for?

Must love Peanut M&M’s, Noodlebox, and sushi (you could say we like to eat here). An accounting background is definitely a plus.

What is your company goal for the coming year?

In 2016 we will be having a product launch and taking over another floor of our office building to make room for more Beans. We’re looking forward to a very exciting and fast-paced year!
