Why The Works

For one thing, we do great work – in pixels and print – for some of the world’s best companies. For another, we’re in a fantastic place to spend your workday. Our custom-designed building sits in the heart of Corktown – an up-and-coming district just minutes from the downtown core, the subway and many of the city’s best markets, parks and restaurants.

The Works is also great because we work (really) hard to make it that way. We have to. Our success depends on the efforts of talented, committed people. And while the stuff we do is fun, interesting and challenging, it ain’t easy.

Our busy season is seriously intense, with long days and lots of overtime. So we make sure to give back in the off-season with summer hours and a year-round flextime policy.

We’re also a dog-friendly studio. You’ll find a couple of big ones roaming around, so you’ve got to be comfortable with four-legged co-workers.

If this sounds like your kind of place, get in touch.

Job Postings

Senior Project Manager

The Works Design Communications crafts meaningful messages in pixels and print for some of the world’s best companies. We are communicators, designers and builders across all mediums with a knack for producing really, really great work.

The Works’ custom-built offices sit in the heart of Toronto’s Corktown, just minutes from some of the best markets, parks and dining in the city. With all the bells and whistles of a brand new space, The Works’ studio comes with extras that keep our award-winning team smiling through their sweat – above and beyond the all-you-can-drink coffee.

Because certain months of the year do require longer workdays and overtime hours, we make sure we offer some pretty awesome perks. Summertime rooftop BBQs (yes, we have a deck up there), kitchen bake-offs, intramural sports and the occasional beverage cart are a few ways we keep the creative juices flowing at The Works. We support a limited flexible hours policy to encourage interests outside of what’s in your inbox. We also trust that pride in producing great work means you recognize when the work-life balance shifts.

You love what you do and are exceptionally good at it, so hard work doesn’t scare you. You’re not exhausted by challenge; you’re motivated by it, which is why you’ll fit in nicely with the team. You may not need them, but you’ll find friends in the people here.

We are a dog friendly workplace, and there are a few of them here. Some of them are big. You need to be ok with that.

Orchestrate and implement The Works’ projects (web and print) from end to end by:

  • Preparing quotes, briefs, estimates, proposals, schedules and invoices

  • Obtaining approvals and sign-offs – both internal and from clients
