Working At Descartes


We believe that great things happen when we work together, both locally or globally. We grow organically and through acquisition, each time strengthening our team and capacity to win.

Exploring Work Culture at Descartes

We are one team. Geographically dispersed and striving towards the same goals, but live in different countries and have different needs.

What’s in it for you?

Challenging and purposeful work

We’re the winning team because we deliver the most value. We retain that position by challenging ourselves and the status quo every day.


A voice

At Descartes, everyone has a voice and the best idea wins, regardless of where it originates.


Opportunity lives here: for our customers, our growth, and for our people.

Work Life Balance & Hybrid Work Arrangements

work life

At Descartes, we know work doesn’t have to be uncomfortable; asking for accommodations shouldn’t be hard. Supporting our innovative, dedicated employees by providing them with multiple, flexible work models is the least we can do as an organization. People need to feel appreciated as humans and respected as professionals. If creating policies and space that enable choice helps our employees do their best work in balance with their whole life, that’s a freedom we are happy to provide.

As a globally-dispersed organization with international clients, we offer a work-from-anywhere and flexible hours model. We empower our teams to own and manage deliverables not tied to other individuals and their own life responsibilities. By creating an environment that allows remote or hybrid work, we’ve built a culture that accepts that people can do their job – and do it well – away from the office.

community involvement

Descartes is committed to building a workplace environment where all employees are included and valued. Everyone has a voice.

We recognize that differences in race, gender, age, nationality, sexual orientation, physical ability, thinking style and background bring richness to our workplace and the results we generate for our customers.

We strive to ensure that employees are treated
with dignity and respect. Fostering all employees’
passion for our business will help us continue to
be a leader in the marketplace.

Community Involvement


Descartes is dedicated to being a good corporate citizen in all of the communities we work and live in. We strive, and encourage our employees to do the same, to contribute positively to our communities – locally and globally- through various forms of giving and volunteerism.

We are focused on the future, growing our organization, and making the world a better place through logistics.
