Changes we’ve made to ensure our employees are safe: We are doing our part to ensure that our employees (and future employees) remain healthy, safe, and at home to reduce the spread of Covid-19. In doing so, ecobee has made the decision to be a remote-first work environment until July 1st 2021. 

How does this affect hiring and onboarding? Our interview and onboarding process has remained relatively the same, except that interviews and onboarding sessions are conducted through video. New employees will be starting remotely, and all necessary equipment will be shipped to them.
