About Type A
To our clients we are a trusted guide in an unmapped world and to our colleagues we are a working family connected by a love of learning and internet obsession…… as well as an epic animated GIF game on slack.
But, in all seriousness there is a family dynamic to the team with everyone always eager to lend a hand and help out. The pace of work is faster than other work environments due to the fact we only work 4 days. We use project managers as buffers between the delivery teams and the clients so you can get your head down and not be interrupted by constant external and internal communication.

Everyone is furnished with a high end macbook pro as well as every tool in the known SEO universe.
-4 day work weeks
We believe in quality over quantity, so we work in a completely different way to 99% of the industry.
