We're all impactful agents of change

Through our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee, we're building a more compassionate and inclusive business model for the future of our company, the tech industry and communities around the world. Lightspeed was founded on the principles of diversity and inclusion and our daily practices and interactions reflect this commitment every day.

This work is complex but action is non-negotiable. It's about learning, unlearning and knowing that growth and change come from challenging the norms–even when it makes us uncomfortable." Seema Bakthula, Global Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Lightspeed

Diversity is built into Lightspeed's DNA, and we'll never stop working to ingrain equity and inclusion into every aspect of this company.

How we hire

We offset unconscious bias in our hiring process through diverse interview panels, inclusive language in job postings and trained recruiters who challenge bias every step of the way. We also connect with our community partnerships to source diverse talent for all opportunities.

How we work

We challenge systemic inequities through measurable actions like auditing our pay practices, promotion decisions, succession planning and M&A practices on a regular basis. With this valuable insight, we can see how we're doing and adjust along the way.

How we grow

We ensure DEI messaging is embedded in all our learning programs, from onboarding and training to corporate communications and leadership development. To all grow together, we seize learning opportunities through external partnerships, panel discussions and, most importantly, employee feedback.

Recruitment Process

We've created a hiring process that allows for a two-sided conversation. Let's get to know each other on the same side of the table.

Tell your story

You're more than your resume. This step is so our recruiter can get to know you, understand your passions and learn what makes you jump off the page.

Show your work

Show us what you got. We love to see what you bring to the table, beyond your conversation skills. This is where you can let your work speak for itself.

Meet the team

Let's take it to the next level. This is the time when you'll meet your direct manager, learn about the team and understand the role.

We make it human.

We make technology for real business owners, so we're looking for real people. Top qualifications and hands-on experience are great, but we want to learn about your hidden talents, hobbies and side hustles.

There are many things that mark my journey at Lightspeed—most notably the ability to express my authentic self with an incredible community. I know that I can do whatever I set my mind to in large part due to the support system I get from Lightspeed and its people. I’m truly grateful that I can be a crew member aboard this rocket ship and that I can start every day with a challenge, energy and determination! ” Glenda Agyemang, Talent Partner
