Cognician was founded on the belief that people are capable of extraordinary things when their behavior is driven by
powerful ideas and deeply felt emotions. This belief is woven into the DNA of our culture. And into the zeroes and ones
that are the building blocks of our platform for activating behavior change.
Since 2010, we have built behavior change programs for some of the world’s greatest companies.
We use our chat-based software to engage learners in life-changing conversations.
Changing hearts and minds at scale makes it possible for big corporate ships to turn quickly.
Our award-winning programs have generated over half a million shared insights from their users.
In a world where technology is evolving rapidly, and humans are struggling to adapt to change, we put people first.
Questioning is one of the cornerstones of Cognician – they enable us to explore ideas that can change our lives for the better.
We care deeply for our team members, clients, and users. We go out of our way to nurture an accepting and supportive environment.
We like to get things done! Our clients distinguish us from other companies based on our quick response times and can-do attitude.
We maintain a culture of integrity by nurturing honesty, transparency, and respect in everything we do.
Teamwork is a way of life at Cognician. Every project is a team effort, and everyone gets their hands dirty. You're never on your own.
We strive to achieve excellence in everything we do, whether it be technical support, launching a product, or sending a kind email.
We believe in maintaining wellbeing by encouraging healthy habits of body and mind, and by creating healthy working conditions.
Our global team is a collection of exceptional humans, brought together by a desire to participate in
meaningful work that has lasting impact. If purpose makes you tick, then you’ve found your tribe.
We’re a human company: we’d have to be, since People are at the heart of everything we do.
We share meals together (even virtual ones), work with an output mentality, love ordering books
for our shared library, geek out over learning theories, and regularly compete in the high stakes
who-has-the-best pun arena.
We value diversity and recognise that as a team we can achieve far more than going it alone.
We intentionally create space in the working week for thinking, discussing, and improving
and it wouldn’t be Friday if we didn’t share our best #FurKidFriday snaps!
We value balance. We do school drop-offs and pick-ups,
and we know what it means to live outside of work!
Everything we do is about meaningful work. Our work improves
organizations and the lives of the people who take our programs.
As a company, our teams regularly take dedicated time out to
focus on “mending” something of their choice: processes, work, or systems.
Every month, we dedicate 90 minutes to Learning & Development time.
That’s when we do team education, wrap up online courses, etc.
Every week, the company gathers online for a Mind Meld. We discuss
business strategy, get staff updates, and share organizational news.
Our weekly, company-wide meetings end in “appreciation sessions”,
which often run over time. We genuinely care for each other!
Each year, our team is flown from Europe, Africa, and the Americas to
connect at our head office in Cape Town, South Africa.
We have quarterly internal awards, which we call Mind, Heart and Hands:
we recognise great thinking, emotional investment, and strong actions.
Not only do you get to work from wherever you like, we cover your home
WiFi costs in full – and yes, you can get a really good package!
You’ll have access to the very best digital coaching programs we offer,
as well as our Employee Assistance Program.
We like to reward our Cognoscente! For every five years worked,
we gift you an extra month of paid leave as a sabbatical.
On joining, your device will be delivered to you. We use Apple, so you can
breathe a sigh of relief – if you’re not relieved, we’ll get you through it!
