Location: Calgary, Alberta

Why Join BlackSquare?

Our Calgary office is funky and cool – we’re located in the heart of downtown with great views of the mountains and access to every amenity you can imagine, and a stylish tasting room for sampling wine and beer and other cocktails.  We have regular nights out on the town, many in-office lunch potlucks, and there’s usually at least one email thread floating around the office that’s composed entirely of animated gifs (we like comedy). If you want to learn about the modern world of direct to consumer alcohol 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.
