6 things that make Strutters smile

Down-to-earth people

We’ve got a lot of big brains packed into regular-sized heads at Strut. We’re proud of our work, but check our egos at the door since Strutters are all about supporting each other — whether it’s tackling a new project together, or finding a morsel of optimism in someone’s latest Cookie Club fail.

Work-life fit

Life is busy, so we all do our best to confine work to the work day while still getting everything done. Strutters are given time for appointments, opportunities for modified schedules, and flex days to catch up on life duties or hit the mountains before the weekend rush.


This Friday afternoon tradition is heralded by the dulcet tones of Rebecca Black soaring throughout the office. It’s how we wrap up the week with fellow Strutters — celebrating each other during Snaps and kicking back with cocktail club, games, and project-free conversations.

Dog Dayz

Although Feline Fridays also has a nice ring to it, so far all our furbaby guests are canine in nature. We take turns bringing in our dogs on Fridays, providing them a change of scenery and fetching grins from everyone in the office at the end of a long week. Big or small, we welcome them all.

The writings on the wall

Ever get in trouble for drawing on the walls as a kid? Not at Strut!* Almost all our walls are made for writing on, and are usually covered with brainstorms, doodles, wireframes, baby pools, and old Pictionary clues. (*There was that one time, but it wasn’t a whiteboard wall. It is now.)

Livin’ on the edge

Located on 17th Ave and 2nd St SW, we’re close to all the action, but just outside the hassle of downtown. A ton of tasty lunch spots within a short walk. River pathways, Repsol Sport Centre, yoga, and spin classes to help keep fit. A 10-min walk to the C-Train and reasonably-priced parking.
