What it’s like to work at Equator:

Founded & based in Kitchener, Ontario, Equator Studios has fully embraced WFH, both internally with our remote-first virtual office, and at a product level, with the world’s first real-time collaborative GIS mapping platform.

A typical workday starts with a virtual stand-up meeting held in chat, followed by a visit to the team voice chat lobby where you can chat with colleagues about everything and nothing. We’re doing what we can to leverage technology in order to bridge the void that WFH sometimes creates while leveraging the perk of the modern virtual office.
