Job Location: Toronto, Edmonton with remote opportunities.

Due to COVID-19 Guidelines, this role is currently, 100% remote / work from home until further notice.  Once it is safe to do so, we will be operating as a hybrid workforce with the option to work at home, in the office, or a mix of both.

About Resolver:

The global pandemic has certainly taught us that the ability to manage uncertainty is the challenge of our generation. At Resolver we are transforming risk management to risk intelligence so organizations can protect people and assets and deliver on their purpose.

We are ambitious in both our mission and our culture. As a scale-up, we have the innovative, non-hierarchical approach of a start-up blended with the stability and financial security of an enterprise.
