"I chose to work at Athena because I felt that the company had a lot to offer and I wanted to experience working with other agencies in the social services sector. Athena allows its employees to grow and share their full potential and to focus on areas they are passionate about. Working at Athena provides learning opportunities about other agencies and their work and also allows me to assist them in providing better services for their clients. Implementing Penelope means being a part of something larger with an agency and it means making a difference in the lives of the clients they serve; it is very rewarding to contribute to this effort."

"It is the real deal here. Our mission and vision at Athena Software is to help social service agencies around the world do more with less using our technology. It is an inspiring mission that you can feel fuelling everything we do each day, and I think that is the most important piece of a fulfilling workplace. Not to mention the people, atmosphere, and culture are 10/10 in my books."

Supporting our Community

At Athena Software, we strive to support important organizations like The Food Bank of Waterloo Region via annual employee fundraising events. With our focus on the social service sector, we make it a priority to give back to organizations doing great work in our own community.

Working at Athena Software is more than just helping to provide case management software tools for organizations providing human services worldwide – you can make a difference locally as well!

This year, Athena took part in The Food Bank’s Great Food Sort Challenge and sorted 2,058 pounds of food in 30 minutes, while also raising $690 in employee donations, earning us the honour of being named Most Effective Meal Raisers for the challenge! We also collected an additional 316 pounds of food for the Food Bank as part of our internal Halloween food drive. 

In addition to partnering with local organizations, we often also support the initiatives of our clients and the communities they serve. Join us and help make a difference with Athena Software!
