About Us

Talent + Experience

Our Company

Tandem Vault is an LA-based SaaS company that provides a B2B cloud-based digital asset management solution for small businesses and global non-profits alike. Created in 2010 as the software to power Tandem Stills + Motion, founders Ian Shive and Nick Merwin quickly realized that the product they built could scale well-beyond their own internal needs. In 2012, Tandem Vault was launched under the Tandem Stills + Motion company umbrella as a licensable DAM solution for businesses and institutions to use to upload, organize, store and share their digital assets. In 2019, Tandem Vault became its own company and to this day remains profitable and fully-bootstrapped.
