Designing for Success

Junxion is a small team that anticipates significant growth in the years ahead. It’s a dynamic workplace with a culture of expecting everyone to be a leader, and where transparent, open discussion of what’s effective (and what’s not) is encouraged. We believe that if each of us works with these values in mind, we’ll build the company, culture and change we want.

  • Generosity: We strive to cultivate value by ‘showing up’ supportively and empathetically, ‘seeking first to understand,’ and focusing on relationships, more than transactions.
  • Courage: We demonstrate leadership by asking the tough questions, making the hard decisions, and speaking truth to power.
  • Fun: There’s always space for humour. Work’s more fun if we don’t take ourselves too seriously!
