Non-linear creations Inc. currently leases 1,552 square feet of space from Le Germain Calgary, a mixed-use hotel including office space and 40 private residences, but is looking to sublease the space according to a flyer published by Colliers International.
Randy Woods, president and co-founder of non-linear creations, said that Calgary's 16 employees need more space and that the company is looking to rent out a larger office to accommodate them. The posting was initially made because the company had put an offer in on another location, but the deal fell through. Subleasing is now dependent on being able to find a new, larger office, Mr. Woods said. Its lease with the hotel doesn't end until June of 2015.
The Calgary office is currently looking to hire five new employees, but Mr. Woods said that if the right people are found, that number will go up.
"There's no shortage of work in Calgary," he said.
Non-linear creations' Ottawa office houses 28 employees, a number that has remained stable for the past five years. Most clients are from Calgary, Toronto, the United States or Brazil so Ottawa employees do a lot of travelling, but the company has no plans of moving headquarters, Mr. Woods said.
The firm does private sector work mostly and doesn't apply for government contracts, he added, preferring to avoid the paperwork and additional fees associated with the competitive bidding process.
With more than 80 employees across the country in its Ottawa, Calgary, Toronto and Regina offices, the company has seen slightly more than 20 per cent revenue growth each year for the past five years, Mr. Woods said.
It has also expanded into the Brazilian market, a natural choice for the company considering the small time difference and a number of Portuguese-speaking employees. A non-linear creations office was recently opened in the south of Brazil with eight employees.
The company, founded in 1995, also has an office in New York City.
Clients include Rogers Communications, Canadian Tire Corp., TMX Group, the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corp. and the Conference Board of Canada.
Those clients are offered strategic services to build an online space, a marketing team to bring users to the site, and a productivity team to help deploy intranet to employees.
