Toronto, Ontario, Canada · Research


We believe that great students are more than just book smart. Altus builds software that helps academic programs choose holistically exceptional applicants by providing reliable professionalism screening tests (like our signature CASPer® test) for use in the admission process. Think of CASPer® like an "SAT" for people skills. The CASPer® test was developed originally at McMaster University, and has been used to screen over 125,000 applicants for medicine, nursing, veterinary, optometry, pharmacy and teachers education schools in US, Canada, Australia and the UK over the last decade and we are growing rapidly. The test uses everyday scenarios to evaluate for universally useful skills like communication, collaboration, advocacy ethics and judgment.

We’re a quirky, diverse and intellectual group of 20 working out of the OneEleven scale-up space in the downtown core of Toronto. We tackle some tough problems (like how to evaluate empathy in someone who wants to become a doctor), and some less tough ones (like what to bring in for the communal snack table).

Working with Altus means high career growth and impact. It also means learning a ton from brilliant coworkers, as well as directing your own personal and professional growth. Along with full benefits, enhanced parental leave and self-directed vacation, we provide you with a budget for learning. Use it for a professional workshop, or use it to learn the kazoo- we believe in supporting the whole you.

If you thrive in a small startup, with autonomy to make decisions, run experiments, and continuously test and refine, then this is the place for you.
