About the company

We are an award-winning venture studio. We specialize in creating and reinventing businesses for a software-centric world. Our products have made “Best of the Year” lists (Apple; The Next Web), improved millions of lives, and are used by the world’s leading companies – including Adobe, Sony, Starbucks, Phillips, and SEGA. In 2015 alone, our work was featured in TIME, The New York Times, USA Today, and Wired. We just made the cover of Canadian Business' 2016 "Most Innovative Companies in Canada.”

With our work that continues to reach new heights, we are looking for a Lead Project Manager to act as mission control for our most critical projects. At the most fundamental level, you will be responsible for ensuring that projects are prioritized and progressing in a meaningful way and that all of our work aligns with our goals, values, and expectations.

Our organization does not have a typical hierarchy, nor does every role fit into a tidy job title. This is one such role. For the right candidate, we’re willing to adapt the role to empower maximum impact. We do, of course, value the experience a candidate brings with them, but even more important to us is their ambition and their willingness to try new things.

To be clear: this will be a challenging role. We want a candidate who relishes the sweat that goes into growing both themselves and groundbreaking projects.

About this role

We need someone who has lead large scale projects at Fast Growing Modern Startups.

You’ll act as the point person for communications with our partners, ensuring expectations and goals are aligned, and that everyone involved in the project is informed regarding it.

Not only will you need to tick all the typical requirements (e.g. clear communicator, effective coordinator, etc.), you’ll be taking an active role in the discovery process, identifying pain points and communicating technical and non-technical concepts to everyone involved. This liaising extends to bringing different stakeholders together, often working closely with our leadership team where appropriate.

With your understanding of what’s important to our partners, you will be responsible for keeping an eye on burn rate, budgets, feature adjustments, end dates, and overall progress, and ensuring all these factors are accounted for across Axiom Zen’s diverse portfolio.


We want you to be able to assess how successful a project team is at organizing itself, allocating resources, and using the right tools. You will help teams choose between Scrum, Kanban, Agile, and other various methodologies, explaining the pros, cons, and right ways to apply each. Most importantly, you will help disseminate best practices around using our internal project management suite (GitHub + ZenHub) effectively for maximum transparency with minimum overhead.


Not only are you up for a challenge, you thrive when met with one. Your experience and expertise will be tested; some of your ideas may receive pushback, and you will need to defend or adapt them without missing a step.

You have a willingness to experiment, and you can improvise when necessary. Most important, you're able to fail, pick yourself up, learn your lesson and try again.
