Behind the Canvas

Our team is composed of people from every background and experience. We’re MLK Scholars, high school dropouts, former artists, veterans and working parents. We’re a passionate team of learners and doers with a bias for action. We encourage each other to remember and exercise our individual “why” in service to our mission.

Our Values

Dream Big

Regardless of role or team, we all think and act like founders by imagining the impossible.

Open Doors

We are here to make sure there is always a door for everyone to walk through; whether that’s being gracious to each other or knocking down barriers for others—we are here to make space for those who need it.

Be a Student

We always have a growth mindset because we know that trusting, respecting and listening to others is essential to our individual and collective success. We approach situations with curiosity over judgement—we only fail when we stop learning and asking questions.

Walk the Walk

Follow-through is what transforms promises into progress. We do not play lip service to our mission or others—we execute.

How we work

We’re remote first

No matter where you sit, you’re a part of our Canvas. We ensure that our entire team can do their best work whether they’ve started in an office or have never met their colleagues in person.
$75 a Week for Lunch
$500 Work for Home Stipend

We create moments of play

We take time to build community in a virtual world and create moments of play as we step away from our day-to-day work.

Your wellness matters

We have quarterly wellness days and encourage our team to take time off to rejuvenate.
$125 quarterly wellness stipend
Complete Medical, Dental and Vision coverage
Unlimited PTO for all employees
401k Match options
12 Week Mat/Pat Leave

We take engagement seriously

We run bi-annual Engagement surveys and monthly Employee experience pulses to continuously evolve our culture. After every survey, we create actions to ensure our team is heard, seen and valued.

We value development

We offer development programs for our all of managers and leaders to ensure they are modeling inclusive behaviors and enabling everyone on their team to thrive. We reinforce our values by offering learning opportunities to all employees on an ongoing basis.

Diversity is our super power

We set aggressive diversity goals for all of our teams to ensure we’re modeling for our industry there’s a better way.
