Your ally in project development. Come to get the job done, stay because you enjoy working with us.
Who is Tandem?
We’re a close-knit team, working remotely out of Victoria, Edmonton, and Vancouver.
Hello! We're Tandem - A Consulting, Software Development, and Design company that started somewhere between 2018 and 2021. (Our lawyers know when we officially became Tandem.)
Tandem was founded on the desire to make products that matter. Building effective solutions that are significant to our clients, our team, and (hopefully) the world at large. We work to be the antithesis of unnecessary overhead and inefficiency.
Our talented crew works in Tandem to get the job done right.
Clear, stable, independent, and pragmatic. That’s who we are in this big, wide, world.
Big Picture: Client goals come first
Before we type a line of code, start wireframing, or make any decisions, we work with you to determine the exact solutions that will solve your problems.
Communication: Commitment to stability
A stable working environment is the key to happiness, for both our clients and ourselves. We work to establish a clear, cooperative, and reliable relationship.
B2B Relationships: We find meaning in the long-term
As businesses grow, their product needs change. Regularly working with the same clients allows Tandem to thoughtfully build upon our previous work, and identify opportunities.
Client Freedom: Doing work the “right way”
We make systems that can be easily built upon into the future by any development shop. We want to make sure our client's satisfaction is what keeps them working with us.
Motivation: We build what we believe in
We work on projects that interest us. Executing solutions that improve our client’s businesses, while building on the strengths of Tandem.
Pragmatic: We turn ideas into reality
Some people are great at devising ideas. We’re great at turning ideas into tangible products. We’re pragmatic but never negative, instead responding to challenges by being flexible.
Meet the team
Tandem's founders, the people with the plan
James is in charge of managing Tandem’s strategic direction and system design processes. He looks after Tandem’s projects and clients. James is always inspired to learn something new and discover improvements for our systems.
After earning a Bachelor of Commerce in Management Systems from the University of Alberta, James has spent the last decade performing Business Analysis and managing Development teams.
When it comes to work, James is especially passionate about three things; bringing experts from multiple fields together, building novel solutions to complex problems, and making the world a better place.
James spends as much time outside as he can, hiking, backpacking, and camping. In the winter, you’ll find him playing Super Nintendo.
Paul is our Lead Designer at Tandem. He works to make high quality design accessible to a wider range of businesses. Bringing a creative perspective and problem-solving attitude, Paul raises the bar for B2B communications and products.
Paul has a wide-range of skills, honed and developed at some of the West Coast’s most fundamental institutions. After graduating from Capilano University’s IDEA Program, Paul has worked as a Creative Lead at TEDx Stanley Park and Digital Designer at SAXX.
On his time away from Tandem, you can find Paul tinkering with smaller projects in the Esports industry, as well as learning new ways to express himself with 3D, Augmented Reality, and Virtual Reality.
Simon leads the Development team at Tandem. He oversees numerous projects, discovering new talent, and researching useful technology in order to improve our development operations.
Simon has over 13 years of experience building software, bringing immense care and attention to detail to every project. He believes that creating software, with internal consistency, can be akin to an artist producing a work of art.
In his free time he likes watching shows like Star Trek and playing board games.
