Sr. Digital Strategist

What makes someone successful on your team?

Successful team members put their own needs behind the needs of their teammates. In practice, this often manifests as empowering, challenging and encouraging teammates to step outside their comfort zone. Team members who lead others to success are far more successful than those who work only to serve themselves.

Andrew

Technical Principal

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

As a digital innovation firm, creativity is in our DNA. We hold an annual 24-hour innovation blitz, to harness the creativity of our employees. We stop all client work and self-organize in teams centered around employee ideas for solving problems with emerging technologies.Many of these ideas have gone on to become tools that make our clients.
