The Animikii Team

Animikii’s team members work from coast to coast on Turtle Island. Our Thunderbirds are grateful to work from many different Nations and Territories. Our team headquarters are on lək̓ʷəŋən territory, and our team works remotely from the traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh, and K’ómoks Peoples, the Syilx People of the Okanagan Nation, the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation, and Treaty Six territory. Every Animikii team member has completed accredited Indigenous Cultural Safety training and approaches technological solutions through this lens.

Animikii is remote-friendly, committed to supporting Indigenous technologists, and flexible enough to fit most lifestyles. If you'd like to join our team, visit our Careers page.
