Who We Are

The future of work means an increasing impact from artificial intelligence, the automation of jobs, and changing models of what work looks like. The shake-up will be felt across all industries in every department; “That’s the way it’s always been done” will no longer be a valid excuse to justify traditional business processes and methodologies. We are a Waterloo-based technology company that helps solve this problem by combining advanced Industrial/Organizational Psychology with Artificial Intelligence to help companies hire, grow and retain top talent.

At Plum, we believe in transparency, and a culture of support and team orientation displayed first and foremost by our leadership team. Daily interactions with our Directors and our Co-founders are not uncommon in our small but growing team. We are also committed to helping our team members reach their full potential with coaching and internal growth opportunities (we also love to have fun on a daily basis)!
