The team at Tidal is not very big and collaboration comes easily and happens frequently. The teams working on an individual projects are often very small: a project manager and one or two developers. I have had the chance to work on two different projects so far, but I mostly interact with the developers because that’s where my desk is. What impressed me about being in the development team is how often they ask each other for advice and help. In fact, this brings me to one of the company’s core values: teamwork.
Tidal has five core values: accountability, innovation, teamwork, leadership and raving fans. Everyday, I notice how open and friendly the developers are in helping each other out, despite tight deadlines and demanding clients. The value of teamwork is definitely present everyday and I am not discouraged in asking the developers questions because, if they have time, they have no problem answering them.
One of the developers who sits beside me also lives in Richmond and we sometimes take the skytrain together. She is a self-taught Drupal developer who got into the field after helping out her brother with web development projects. Before moving to Canada, she ran a web development business in the Philippines that had local and international clients. To aspiring developers, she says: the best way to learn is by doing, especially with many resources and tutorials on the internet.
