Have you ever wondered who we are? What the heck does Mindable do? Why does the HR department consist of dogs?! We like to keep a hint of mystery in Mindable. But today we are opening the curtains and letting you in on who we are, what we actually do, and why we love coming to work every morning.
So, let’s give you a rundown of the basics of Mindable. We are a digital marketing firm based in Sherwood Park, Alberta. We have been operating this business since 2010 and as you can read on our home page, we quickly sky rocketed into success within 5 years!
We aren’t your typical marketing firm. We don’t take on clients; Mindable is the client. We specialize in direct marketing in the self-discovery and personal transformation fields. Does that sound vague? It is. We may be opening our doors a bit, but we still need to keep you interested and coming back for more 🙂
Our office is the epitome of fun, creativity, and collaboration. When we aren’t dreaming, planning, creating or testing, we make sure to take advantage of the fun our office has to offer. This could be anything from a friendly ping pong battle, sharing some birthday cake in our staff kitchen or giving our HR reps some ear scratches. Just to clarify, our HR reps are some of our staff’s friendly pups who like to come for regular office visits. We have a real Human Resource rep, we promise!
We are holding strong at 13 in-office members who run the show and over 35 staff around the world supporting our endeavor. And who might be our fearless and passionate team leader you ask? Well, that’s Daniel Matishak!
Dan is a twenty something Edmonton entrepreneur who likes to push boundaries and thrives on leading his team through challenges to success. Dan studied interactive design and digital media design in college, and at the end of school, when it came time to intern at a company, he convinced the faculty to let him intern at his own company! He wanted to be lead by his own vision and learn from his mistakes, not others. And now, that is how he leads us – by letting us dream and test to our heart’s desire, and when mistakes happen he helps us learn from them, and turn them into lessons to apply in the future. A world traveler and public speaker, Dan continues to inspire his team with his passionate soul and incredible work ethic.
