Welcome to Tandem, a Calgary-based creative boutique. We are on the hunt for a web developer to join the Tandem team. But not just any web developer. The successful candidate will be interested in working in a collegial and creative environment. A person who has interests beyond just a beautifully written piece of code. Someone who wants to work at a smaller company, with less hierarchy. A place where stuff gets done. Great stuff. So if this ‘rant’ sounds a bit like you, please read on.
Tandem is completing its 18th year in business. For some corporations, that’s nothing. But in the field of communications and design, that is something. Since inception, Tandem has produced work for many of the same clients. On the web front, Tandem designs great looking, functional, informative and memorable web pages. Our sites have been produced through a mix of collaboration; typically a web developer and a designer and a project manager and a client collaborating on how best to communicate a company’s brand in an interactive environment.
You likely have other marketing interests too. Perhaps you’re a social media hound and enjoy related marketing activity around ‘social’ channels; or possibly you’re a production guru and enjoy contributing in other areas. Or maybe you’ve dived deeper into web subjects and you’re interested in databases; behaviour based online advertising; or Analytics and big data. Regardless of your interests and your pursuits, Tandem would enjoy hearing about it and discussing ways we could make your talents relevant to Tandem and its clients.
On the culture front, Tandem works in and supports a collegial environment. We do not have an intense ‘work day and night’ culture. However, we enjoy being busy, we enjoy getting things done and we take satisfaction in improving the businesses of our clients. We’re not big on protocol, committees or processes. But we do believe in rolling up our sleeves, communicating often and regularly and making great stuff. We are very brand oriented. Translated to the web world, we always look for ways to create a memorable and unique interactive experience. That last point can frustrate some designers and developers (the ones who like a template and only champion function) and for others it’s uplifting knowing the best value is delivered to clients by creating on brand, beautiful sites with seamless functionality.
If this sounds like a place you want to explore, please send an email with your information. We will email or call you back (seriously, we will email or call everyone back) and discuss ‘you’ in more detail.
Our web developer posting is a full-time, salaried position at Tandem Marketing Design Inc. The position is based in Calgary and the successful candidate will likely already work in the Calgary market. There is no relocation assistance for people not currently living in Calgary. Thank you for your time and all the best in your career search.
