What it's like:
Last year, we had a blast. We personally enjoy challenging the status quo to unlock further potential with innovative approaches of UX.
Each project is fairly small in scope with a large amount of flexibility and freedom to discuss & find the best solution for a problem. Usually, a single person heads up a project, collaborates with another for architecture & development, and eagerly looks forward to launching (rather than endlessly polishing).
- Centrally located in downtown Houston, free employee parking.
- Coed work environment, casual dress code.
- Cool office perks (e.g. sodas & coffee, happy hours, etc.).
- Generous salary considerations & full benefits.
- 6% 401k matching
- 100% health / vision / dental for you & subsidies for the rest of your family
- 15 vacation & sick days / yr.
- Gym membership reimbursement up to $100/mo
What We Value:
We love to work as a team but office hours are flexible. Producing is more important than meeting a 9 to 5 schedule. We understand there are moments when you need to isolate yourself to concentrate so working from home is permitted and encouraged.
We like to have a good time and minimize stress with good in-office coffee, ping pong, lounge/reading time and regular happy hours. We work hard and meet realistic deadlines. What good is delivering a poor product early?
We also understand that family is important, so time-shifting (and sometimes day-shifting) is necessary to deliver for both the team & your family.
