About the company

Plotly is a small, post-revenue company based in Montreal. We work with all areas of industry and government, including some of the most exciting companies and research institutions in the world, in how they present, share and socialize their data. Our work culture engenders skill-sharing, work-life balance, and open discussion.

Office life

Plotly's head office is located in Montreal, we have a satellite office in San Francisco, and a global presence. We are constantly looking to expand our team with committed people.

Southern exposure

Our loft-style office boasts plenty of natural light, an open floor plan, and custom made standing and sitting desks, making it a place we are thrilled to work at. Aesthetics plays a large role in both our work as a data-viz company and in our working environment.

Open source

Plotly funds and contributes to a range of open-source projects. We encourage employees to do the same. Check out our work with matplotlib, stack.gl, Handsontable, or ropensci. Fernando Perez, creator of IPython, is on Plotly's advisory board. Plotly's JavaScript charting library and core-technology is also open-source. Curious? See our GitHub page.

Neighborhood

Plotly is situated in Montreal's trendy Mile End. A bilingual neighborhood featuring a pedestrian lifestyle, endless cafes, patios, and parks. Our employees regularly take advantage of these spots when needing a change of pace, or when planning our weekly lunch club destinations.

Philosophy

We think a team should be balanced and collaborative. We think data tools should be democratized, friendly, and social. Our goal is to build a team we love to work with and a platform to transform the way people share and create data and graphs. Plotly’s free, best-in-class data tools are available and accessible to anyone in the world with an internet connection.

Small teams, global impact

Plotly is searching for bright, energetic and dedicated engineers, designers, and sales reps. People who are passionate about the areas where Plotly is seeking lasting impact.

We proudly support K-12 STEM education and outreach — over 80,000 teachers and students around the world have chosen Plotly as their data visualization tool of choice. We contribute to aesthetic intelligence and design in the sciences and statistics — our users have access to D3.js through our APIs for Python, R, MATLAB, Julia, and our integrated web app. And we promote reproducibility in journalism and research — our innovative storage keeps charts with the data used to build them.
