What’s the company workflow like?

We work with an exciting array of clients whose programs cover a large swath of topics: education, governmental relations, city infrastructure, and more. Our projects also vary in timelines. Some are multi-year projects that we consistently monitor and improve, while others need to be created in less than a month, such as the website for the city’s campaign to be Amazon’s next HQ.

No matter the deadline, your work will always be backed by experienced supervisors and a supportive team working toward a common goal.

 

What kind of tech do you use?

Our devs and designers use tools like Adobe Creative Suite, Sketch, Abstract, Miro, Node.js, Expression Engine, and Craft. We believe in our team and trust them to use the right tools for their projects, so designs are not limited to certain softwares or technologies.

To stay organized and connected, our team relies on the Google Suite, Microsoft Suite, and Slack.

What do you look for in applicants?

All of the folks at Tactile know and love what they’re doing. Passion for our work and a strong skill set are important, but not everything for our team. We pride ourselves on the genuine employees we already have and appreciate people who seem like they can add to our existing company culture.

To get a feel for candidates’ potential success at our company, certain applicants will have a separate sit-down with Tactile employees so we can hear feedback from our staff. Maintaining company cohesion is crucial to our mission.
