Domain7 is team of storytellers, solution-finders, designers and developers, who combine curiosity, imagination, tech-savvy and good old street smarts to make the web a better place for our clients and their clients. We put real human needs at the heart of everything we do—we call it “humanizing the web." We’re looking for super smart, passionate, innovative people who share those values. Is that you? We’d love to chat.
Domain7 is a digital agency on a mission to humanize the web.
We love people. We’re not satisfied with delivering the status quo. We focus on making webthings that people talk about and share. Our work is brave and leading edge, and we’re incredibly good at what we do.
We have offices in Vancouver, BC; Washington, DC; and Seattle, WA, but we work with clients all over the world. We rolled out our first website back in 1997. The web has evolved so much since then, and so have we—we’ve grown to nearly 50 employees, we use different tools and collaborate in ways we only dreamed would be possible 17 years ago. Our clients have evolved too—as we’ve grown our team and expertise, we have the opportunity to partner with national and international brands like TELUS, Mountain Equipment Co-op, Imperial College London, the United Way and the YMCA. What hasn’t changed is our passion for people and desire to find solutions to actual human problems, using the web.
