Director, Customer Care
Etobicoke, ON
About us:
At Myant, we are creating the world's first textile computing platform, integrating technology directly into the only thing we've been wearing our entire life – clothing. SKIIN is our first consumer facing brand, and SKIIN's vision is to enhance human ability through connected clothing - think Ironman's suit, but comfortable. The sensors and actuators embedded within our apparel create your Digital Identity, which will be consumed by those who matter to you - your family members, doctors, coaches, other IoT devices - without you consciously having to think about it. Imagine a world where you walk into your house and the temperature automatically adjusts to your optimal body temperature, the lights adjust to your mood, or your doctor is aware of the onset of a disease before you even visit. The line between the digital and physical world is becoming increasingly blurry, and we believe textile is the next medium to bridge that gap.

We're looking for people who believe in our mission to make wearable technology truly ubiquitous and convenient, so that everyone can benefit from it. We are a cross-functional team solving big challenges at the intersection of fashion, electronics, software, and data science.
