Areas of Professional Expertise

Delivering measurable results takes commitment, innovation, and people working together as a team. At Bayshore Solutions we understand this and organize ourselves into powerful delivery teams that have a number of unique skillsets. Our teams consist of the following types of individuals.

Digital Marketing
Our digital marketing team ensures that we leverage the latest tactics to drive results for our customers. Depending on the client and audience this could include incorporating SEO best practices, implementation of pay-per-click campaigns, or leveraging social media marketing like YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter. If you are excited about wielding digital media to achieve measurable goals – this is the place for you!
 
Project Management
Our project management team acts as the single point of contact for our customer engagements. They oversee all budgets, project scope matters, and are responsible for assigning resources in each step of the development process. They define business goals, work flows, and ensure that industry best practices are applied to every project. These responsibilities combine to ensure that the final program exceeds the customers' expectations.

Culture at Bayshore Solutions

We strive to create a family environment and a commitment to each other that is rarely seen. We are a culture that encourages collaboration, innovation, creativity and the willingness to go the extra mile for our clients and co-workers

Our traits and culture can be best summarized in these four concepts:
 
Team Oriented
We all know that, working together, we can create innovative and unique solutions that would never be possible if only working as an individual.
 
Solution Driven
Our team has never come against a problem that could not be solved. We approach each opportunity in life with a passion and are as tenacious as they come. We are in the business of creating solutions and our team continuously drives our clients and our firm forward.
 
Fun
When the environment, people, and the career is fun - amazing things can happen.  We inject laughter, humor, and passion into our daily routine. From holiday potlucks to chili cook-offs, team building events, treat trolley and birthday celebrations- these are just a sampling of some of the fun things we do around the office. 
 
Committed
Our team works hard but also has a good balance to play hard as well. You can hear the recaps each Monday morning in our kitchen and coffee area about the “playing hard” adventures.
 

In the CommunityWorking With and Giving Back to Our Communities

At Bayshore Solutions we understand that our community has provided us with many opportunities and as result we are committed to applying our skills and expertise to make a positive impact in return. We encourage our associates to become active and seek out ways for our firm to become involved in our communities. 

 
Our outreach efforts can be summarized in these four areas. 
 
  • Company Sponsored Non-Profit Service – Bayshore Solutions selects one community organization per year for the purpose of providing in-kind services. In most instances these services are used to create new web sites that incorporate online donation and volunteer inquiry functionality. Bayshore Solutions efforts have resulted in over $450,000 of online donations and 8,000 volunteer inquiries to these organizations.
  • Educational Outreach – Bayshore Solutions feels that the university system is very important to the community. We currently participate on the advisory board for the University of Florida, University of South Florida, and have sponsored interns from institutions from across Florida. We have participated in case study programs for the University of Tampa and have presented to classes at the University of South Florida. 
  • Professional Involvement – Many of our associates are involved in organizations to help become better people, both professionally and personally. Involvement in civic and professional development organizations such as The Greater Tampa Chamber, Tampa Bay Partnership, Leadership Tampa Bay, TEC, The CEO Council, Greater Tampa American Marketing Association, The Tampa Bay Technology Forum, and Westshore Alliance all help our company strive to be better. 
  • Individual Participation  - Bayshore Solutions encourages its associates to “get involved” in the community and allots time and funding for such involvement. Currently associates are actively involved in the following organizations – The Spring of Tampa Bay, The University Of Florida, Ad2 Tampa Bay, The YMCA, Creative Tampa Bay, Boys and Girls Club of Tampa Bay, Self Help for the Hard of Hearing, Deaf and Hearing Connection for Tampa Bay, Equality Florida, WUSF Public Radio, Habitat for Humanity, Prevent Blindness of America, The Tampa Museum of Art, and the Children’s Miracle Foundation.

These are some of the community organizations we participate in and support:

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bayshore Solutions (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    I started with a phone interview with HR, proceeded to a second phone interview with an Account Manager, followed by two separate in-person interviews, one with two Account Managers and one with the President of the company. Each interview was an hour or less and felt comfortable and conversation based.

    However, after a follow-up email thanking them for their time and an entire month, I have not heard from them at all. No offer and no notice of going in another direction.
