About Myplanet Digital

Myplanet is a rapidly growing design & technology company specializing in the process and practice of envisioning, designing and building digital products. 

Their expertise rests on three key pillars: lean user experience design, agile product development, and open source software. Based in Toronto, their team of over 50 represents a full complement of designers, user researchers, developers, QA specialists, and business analysts. 

Unlike digital agencies, Myplanet doesn't do campaigns; instead, they work on products and platforms that have a real impact on their clients’ users and business. Whether they're building a marketplace for millions of small business customers, or an advanced data visualization tool for internal power users, they seek to create meaning in our work. 

At Myplanet we aim to surpass industry standards in every way possible. Becoming a B Corp was a testament to our ongoing commitment to excellence in the areas of environmental social responsibility.
