Work Hard And Be Nice To People

Most of the team work approximately 9 to 5, but with a great deal of flexibility. We have a generous vacation policy and encourage you to use it to stay healthy, engaged, and inspired. We also support sabbaticals.

We strive to maintain a culture that makes our team members want to be in the studio. Benefits include medical, dental, and vision insurance. We have a retirement plan, with matching. Because we believe in on-going learning, each person has a discretionary yearly conference budget. We also believe that everyone should share in our success through profit sharing.

Locally roasted coffee is delivered weekly and made fresh daily, but if you prefer something else in the afternoons we have a rotating draft beer in our kegerator at all times. A full lunch is cooked in-house and prepared for our monthly all-team meeting.

We are located in the heart of South Philly, right on E. Passyunk Ave, which is one block away from the Italian Market—accessible within reasonable walking distance from the Broad Street Line.

Most of all you would get the opportunity to work with motivated and intelligent people!

 

If you would like to join our team, we’d love to hear from you!

We strongly encourage applicants from underrepresented backgrounds to apply.

Please send us an email that includes your experience and a few examples of relevant work.
