When you first walk into Tanasuk’s offices you can’t help but be struck by the unique energy of our Sitecore people. Our company culture is something we believe is at the core of creating a great business. We believe that if we create a place where we love to work, then we can all settle in and revel in being great at what we do.
When we started Tanasuk we set out to completely reinvent how offshore software is delivered. People are at the center of everything we do. We believe the role of Tanasuk is to create a space where great people can pursue their creative urges and in community create the most excellent software in the world. We work hard to develop an environment where people love to come to work and are proud of what they do. We often talk about work being a ‘playground’. It doesn’t mean we’re not serious about what we do; it just reflects the freedom and autonomy we give ourselves to pursue the things we love.
We have five values which underlie our culture; Givers (make your colleagues look good), Learners (never be satisfied with what you know), Sharers (knowledge leads to good decisions, don’t hoard it), Performers (we are the best at what we do), and Oops (we admit our mistakes quickly and without shame). We meet everyday and talk about one of these values and the behavior connected to it. When you walk into our office you can feel the energy and positive aspects of our culture.
Our diversity is an important part of our identity. Our team members are from several different countries and this brings innovation and creativity to how we approach projects. A lot of our work is at the cutting edge of technology and in order to be successful we need to be comfortable with change and diversity. As an offshore services company, we get to be connected with the entire world. In any given day we could have a call with Australia, Norway, Dubai, the UK, and the US. Collaborating with clients from around the globe makes us feel connected and part of something bigger than ourselves.
The name Tanasuk reflects who we are. It can be translated as ‘interactive’ but also ‘harmony’. The idea behind this is that often things seem like they won’t fit together when they’re by themselves, but when you put them together they create a harmonious whole. We love being able to bridge different cultures and create an environment where people from lots of different backgrounds can collaborate to produce really great websites.
