Hey there!

This is the team at Maple. Before diving into the specifics of our job opportunity, let us share a bit about who we are and what we stand for.

In 2014, Ryan (and then Friede) began building websites by lantern light from an off-grid cabin overlooking a slowly drifting river. Playfully called the “shabin” – half shack, half cabin – it was both home and office, just over 400 square feet. We kept our computer charged at the neighbour’s barn, swam in the river during breaks, and dug in the garden whenever we could.

Today, Maple is powered by 50 feet of solar panels and operates from its very own barn! We have a team of five talented and thoughtful individuals, an advisory group of experts, and support over 100 websites with our care plan service.

We are grateful for our staff, mentors, clients, and the ideas that drive and fuel our work. If our story resonates with you, we hope we can connect!
