We work on Macs, communicate with Slack, keep track of responsibilities with Asana, and keep our work at hand with Evernote and Dropbox.
We have a 150Mbit internet connected and VOIP phones.
We have 5 breakout areas in the office for collaboration and meetings, including a private office and two standing tables to spread out project planning docs and deliverables, a living room styled meeting area with the comfiest couch in the world and a gorgeous 55″ Panasonic plasma, and a relaxation space with fuzzy rocking chair and giant beanbag.
Our fridge is stocked with beverages and our complete kitchen means you can be as healthy as you’d like whenever we aren’t ordering UberEats in. We’re also a quick walk away from all Parkdale has to offer for coffee, restaurants, groceries, and post-work get togethers.
We’re professional in our work, but light-hearted in the office.
