What does it mean to be a #GeekWithPersonality? Between the free breakfast and snacks, four weeks’ vacation, flex hours, treadmill desk and ping pong table, it’s almost easy to forget that we’re one of Toronto’s fastest-growing agencies driving brand performance down to the hyper-local level (we said almost!). We have an amazing team of curious and courageous thinkers and doers who are driven to grow and expand. Here’s what some of our “Geeks with Personality” have to say about what our values of E2 + C2 (Enthusiasm, Execution, Curiosity and Courage) mean to them.

Enthusiasm

“To be enthusiastic is to not only actively engage with your situations and surroundings, but to be curious and passionate in the pursuit of knowledge, new experiences and collaboration.”  – Alex Krolak, Account Coordinator

“Being enthusiastic is to make the most out of every moment and to have the excitement to take on any roadblocks with the utmost optimism.” – Jackie Ngo, Application Developer

Execution

Execution is being proactive with optimizations for our clients before they request action, and always staying a step ahead to ensure we maximize both client satisfaction and account efficiency.” – Ahmed Aden, SEM Coordinator

“Execution means utilizing the wealth of expertise throughout DAC in order to service our clients with an unrelenting commitment to excellence.” – Tzvi Grosman, Content and Social Strategist

Curiosity

“Curiosity means connecting potentially unrelated data sources to discern patterns and trends from which innovative, data-driven business decisions can be made.” – Cynthia McLauchlan, Data Scientist

“Curiosity is about seeing the opportunity in every challenge, and embracing that opportunity in order to continually grow and evolve.” – Hilary Marchildon, Senior Copywriter

Courage

“Courage is not accepting the norm, and the willingness to try something new knowing it could fail, in hopes that it creates a new improved standard.” – Chris Bamford, Senior Director of Product

“Courage means being able to execute my curiosity with enthusiasm.” – Arousyak Housepian, Graphic Designer

Though everyone may have a slightly different take on what E2 + C2 means to them, it’s safe to say that everyone fully embraces and lives up to these values every day. Whether that’s focusing on optimizing for voice search or coming up with the next greatest design to win our annual pumpkin-carving contest, after 45 years in the business, we’re always working to stay ahead of the curve. Regardless of the goal, we’re always looking for #GeeksWithPersonality to join one of our offices across the US, Canada and Europe!
