A callout to the curious

A Workplace Unlike Most Workplaces

Team culture, personal achievement and company growth: they only happen with intentionality and persistent focus. Our ongoing pursuit of what’s next has led us to consciously build and evolve the kind of company we – and perhaps you – have always wanted to work for. But don’t just take our word for it.

Valuing People First

We value creative thinkers and process people, team players, and spreadsheet makers. We value the diversity of thought and perspective that gets shared around our table. Because when we come together, we can build something that none of us could accomplish alone. As a team that values human-centered design, it should be no surprise that of all the things we value, it always comes back to and is rooted in people – those we work with and for. Here is what else we value:

Benefits – how we best invest in you.

We approach benefits the same way we approach our work: Start with the basics that everyone expects. Then exceed all expectations.

  • 1-to-1 mentorship program for employees and leaders
  • Allotted time for individual professional development
  • More than 22 paid days off after one year
  • 401K retirement plan with employer matching
  • Medical, dental and vision coverage
  • Ongoing Education Reimbursement
  • Friday morning team meetings and breakfast
  • Monthly team soup lunch during the fall and winter months
  • Fully stocked kitchen with drinks and snacks
  • Happy hours, quarterly events and holiday parties
  • Flexible summer hours and remote work flexibility
  • Offer paid time off for team community service events

We work, celebrate, try new things, and give back – together.

Collaboration is what we do best – and some of our most memorable efforts together happen outside of our daily work in fun and meaningful ways. When you enjoy being in the company of those you work with, you do more than just work together – you do more of life together. Here’s a look at what we do when we’re off the clock.
