One North, a digital agency recently acquired by TEKsystems Global Services®, is looking for a dynamic and driven Office & Talent Coordinator to join our team.

We help some of the world’s most complex organizations stand out from the crowd by delivering breakthrough brand experiences. Leveraging expertise across strategy, brand and experience design and technology, our experts use digital to reimagine how clients connect, communicate and engage with their audiences to win new business, strengthen client relationships, and attract and retain top talent.


Have you ever been described as the “go-to” point of contact to get things done? Do you thrive in a fast-paced environment where there’s never room to be bored? Are you searching for a role that’s not the same exact thing, day after day? If the answer to these questions is a resounding “YES,” then this is the opportunity for you!

As the connector of Employee Experience, Recruiting, HR and Office Management, the Office & Talent Coordinator role is incredibly high-touch in the organization, and the support they provide is critical to our operations. We are looking for someone who is a self-starter, gritty, entrepreneurial and thrives by creating order in chaos. The ideal candidate is someone who enjoys staying busy, is detail-oriented and organized, enjoys working closely with others to solve problems, while also possessing the drive to push self-directed projects through to completion.


(Note: One North is primarily working remotely during the pandemic, but in-office responsibilities will eventually be part of this role.)

• Assist colleagues with ad hoc needs – we are looking for someone who is willing to help with anything and everything.

Office Management

• Manage reception responsibilities, such as front desk coverage, daily mail distribution, welcome display updates, etc.

• Be present at the front desk to greet visitors and receive deliveries from 8:30 am – 5:00 pm Monday-Friday, and coordinate front desk coverage when you are away.

• Ensure all scheduled visitors are added to the building’s security system prior to their arrival.

• Manage overall appearance of One North’s office space, including wiping down desks and white boards, washing dishes in the sink, tracking repairs that may be needed, tidying up the office and preparing meeting rooms.

• Lead relationships with building facilities team and vendors, and manage office requests submitted by employees (ordering ID badges, communicating building announcements, etc.).

• Order food and snacks for meetings and special occasions, while staying on budget.

• Order office supplies and track inventory, keeping the office (and its beverage refrigerator) stocked and the supply closet organized at all times.

• Perform occasional supply runs (sometimes Instacart can’t get donuts here fast enough!).

• Manage intra-office communications through email announcements, lounge monitors, SharePoint and other special requests.

• Assist employees with day-to-day requests, connect employees with the appropriate TEKsystems support team, and escalate issues when necessary.

Additional Support

An Insider's view of One North

What are some social events your company does?

We have a couple of holiday parties every year where people can unwind and have fun. Also, there are always things that people are doing around the office that anyone can join in on: Bake sales, tech talks, going out for a drink after work. The people here certainly know to have fun when they want to!


Senior Developer

What projects are you most excited about?

I really enjoy working with “managed apps,” which keeps clients’ sites and applications the most updated. These projects enable me to get a variety of expertise in all the different platforms we support. I’m a part of all our clients’ implementations, which is challenging and rewarding, and enables me to work with all kinds of clients and teams.



What does career growth look like on your team?

You are very much encouraged to grow your career in the direction you choose, whether that’s a linear progression or something totally different. Thanks to my manager’s nurturing of my interests and the company’s support of my education and professional development, I was able to create my own career path and grow into my dream hybrid role.


Front-End Designer and Developer

What is your vision for the company?

Our aim is to help our clients develop and advance their brands through digital strategy, brand & experience design and technology. Whether it’s helping our clients drive revenue, create stickier client relationships or attract, grow and retain talent, we are the glue that helps our clients engage their most important audiences.



What projects are you most excited about?

Recently, I implemented single sign-on for a client’s website and switched their search platform to Solr. This project gave me the opportunity to learn and work with new technologies such as federated authentication, OWIN, Azure Active Directory, and obviously Solr. Becoming familiar with these has been a huge addition to my skillset.
