Tacit Knowledge – Why Work For Us?

WHO WE ARE

why-we-different

Tacit Knowledge is a digital consultancy with roots in Silicon Valley.  Founded on the premise that talent and experience are key factors in project success, our approach has been to build a global team of highly vetted technologists that specialize in e-commerce.

Tacit Knowledge leverages Silicon Valley innovations to solve scaling and throughput issues prevalent in eCommerce solutions.

The result is in stark contrast to large agencies that scale with newly minted professionals and unpredictable outcomes.

Tacit Knowledge doesn’t offer a myriad of services or attempt to be all things to all people. We operate exclusively at the union of high tech and commerce. This relentless focus on consultative engineering and a core competency within a chosen vertical is our advantage.

WE CRAFT SOFTWARE

Quality software is a reflection of the people who create it. That’s why our clients call us and why we believe that good consulting engineers are hard to find and worth waiting for. Our teams work together to innovate and
inspire.

LIFE AT TACIT KNOWLEDGE

Our employees value continuous improvement, collaboration, humor and their weekends. The work itself? Digital commerce is nascent, and we have the opportunity to define its future state. We’re doing this right now by working with industry-defining clients, creating patent-pending mobile technologies, building affiliate-oriented social networks and using Silicon Valley open-source like Cassandra, Hadoop, and MongoDB to enable high-scale commerce.

New York 

Our Fifth Avenue office is located in heart of NYC, steps away from the Empire State Building.

That’s a fifteen-minute walk to Grand Central Station, ten minutes to Penn Station, and about five minutes to gastronomical nirvana.

Aside from creating some of the best software outside of Silicon Valley, you’ll often find the NYC team battling each other with Nerf weapons and outdoing one another’s puns. New York positions >>

San Francisco 

Tacit’s headquarters are located on Maiden Lane in the heart of downtown San Francisco, just steps from Union Square, adjacent to the Financial District and Chinatown.

Our office is home to just over twenty employees, including Project Managers, Software Engineers, Web Developers,
Development Operations, Engagement Managers, and unfortunately…the executive team.

Applicants must be able to tolerate poor but passionate Rock Band ® renditions of old Journey songs. San Francisco positions >>

London

Opened in 2009, our office is located in Holborn, central London. Our light and spacious office has views of the London skyline, is just two minutes walk from Holborn tube station and easily accessible from the majority of London train stations.

Our objective is simple: bring Silicon Valley innovation to online retail in Europe. We’re working with some of the biggest UK brands and the best partners in eCommerce to do exactly that. London positions >>

Guadalajara 

Our Guadalajara office is located on the third floor of "Torre Brasilia" right in the heart of the Financial District, just a small walk from Punto Sao Paolo and Plaza Patria.We’re comprised of Software Engineers, Quality Assurance, and Web Developers. You may have seen us at some of the recent developer conferences spreading the good word about TDD, Agile, and XP.If you join us, you should be willing to consider playing pool, foosball or ping-pong while having a beer and wearing a wrestling mask. Guadalajara positions >>

Chişinău

Six years old and recently relocated to Le Roi International Business Center in downtown nearby the Parliament and Stefan cel Mare Park, our office in Chisinau is just shy of thirty people utilizing multiple technologies and programming languages.

Being experienced agilists and clean coders at heart we believe that building software is a craft and are at the forefront of the company’s movement to bring Development Operations to the mainstream.

If you can bowl above one hundred after several shots of cognac, you’ll fit right in. Chisinau positions >>
