Vancouver, BC

Phoenix Labs is looking for an experienced Director of Learning to help bolster our efforts to invest in the learning, development, and growth of all our team members. We are looking for someone with passion and experience in elevating learning in an organization. You will be responsible for setting the overall L&D strategy and implementing and managing programs.

People are our most important asset, and we look for each new person to add to our mosaic culture.
