Tandem Acquires Polymathic

JC Grubbs Founder & Chief Executive Officer

I’m very excited to announce today that Tandem has acquired Polymathic, a software development firm that is well known in the Chicago startup and entrepreneurial community. This acquisition will expand Tandem’s Chicago office and leadership team; laying a foundation for growth in 2017 and beyond.

Our mission at Tandem has always been to help our clients solve meaningful challenges. With our recent move to focus on the Impact Sector, we see this mission more clearly than ever. I’m excited to welcome the team members from Polymathic who will add their efforts, voice, and insight to this mission.

Over the last seven years, Polymathic has worked with a broad set of startup and mid-market clients. Their services have spanned product strategy and innovation, UX and design, and custom software development. These skills and experiences match well with Tandem’s core practice areas which creates alignment between the teams.

“This acquisition allows two teams that care deeply about quality products and genuine problem-solving, to join forces in a way that supports midwestern and national industries at the next level. I am so delighted to hand the reigns to JC based on our companies’ commonalities, but also because as a fellow engineer there’s a certain trust I felt from day one. Moreover, my team is so excited to merge into the Tandem culture and philosophy — that’s how you know you’ve got a good fit on your hands!”
Marcy Capron Vermillion, Founder and CEO of Polymathic

While Polymathic will no longer exist in its current form, their entrepreneurial spirit, focus on inclusivity, and belief in the power of people will live on at Tandem. I am excited for us all to enter this next phase of growth and the amazing things we’ll do together.
