Why Join BlackSquare?

We’re a fast-paced but fun team. Our office is new, has great mountain views, and even includes a stylish tasting room for sampling wine, beer and other cocktails. We’re located just off Stephen Avenue, close to great restaurants, public transit and bike lanes. We have regular nights out on the town, many in-office lunch potlucks, fun team building events every quarter, and there’s usually at least one email thread floating around the office that’s composed entirely of animated gifs. Because comedy. 

If you want to learn about the modern world of direct to consumer sales, we’ve got you covered. We have 10 years of experience working with clients internationally.

At BlackSquare, we are a relentlessly resourceful group of people. Everyone in the company has the freedom to work independently, to solve problems and to get things done for our clients. It’s that entrepreneurial attitude that underpins everything we do together. 

If you’ve ever felt stifled in your job, like what you do doesn’t matter, BlackSquare is the perfect antidote.
