To us, working at HSI® isn’t just a job. It’s about living out our passion for helping people perform better.
We have a great work environment, amazing clients, and a team worthy of respect and trust.

Our Culture

We care about what we do and are committed to doing it well. We are detailed planners and pride ourselves on adapting to any situation. We value the relationships with our clients and we work hard to earn and keep their confidence.

We go where we need to go to answer our clients’ questions. Sure, we do lots of office work and science-type stuff, but we don’t just test in a lab. Our experts march with soldiers, work with seniors, and train with emergency responders. Whatever it takes, we get the job done.

Our belief in putting people first is expressed both through our work and through our community contributions. Although we strive not to be overly competitive, our company soccer games and the 1000 lbs. of non-perishables collected during our food drives suggest otherwise. We’re ok with that.

We uphold high ethical standards in our research and in the conduct of our business.

What We Offer

We offer competitive salary and benefits and believe that work-life balance is key to productivity.

We nurture the skills, talents and growth of all team members and we provide professional and business development opportunities to everyone.

We work both within and across teams, giving a wide breadth of experience to all. Every member of Team HSI® has a voice and contributes to our efforts.

Guelph, Ontario is a progressive and environmentally conscious city, among the top places to live in Canada and an all-round great place to work too!

Who We Need – Here’s What We Are Looking For

Interest and capability in applied research (e.g., research methods, data collection experience), Human Factors methods (e.g., usability and user-centred design), parametric and non-parametric statistics, literature searches and technology reviews, questionnaire and survey design, and strong technical writing skills.

We look for degrees in Kinesiology, Engineering, or Psychology and demonstrated interest in Human Factors/Ergonomics and/or applied research. Be sure to tell us about your relevant coursework, projects, and thesis work.

Well-rounded, personable, and intelligent team players. We need people who can learn fast, work hard, and thrive under pressure.
