The other day, I asked one of our newer folks how his first few weeks at Think Brownstone were going. His response, “You know what’s cool about this place? Everybody likes each other. I mean, they’re all smart and they do great work, but everybody gets along and enjoys their jobs.” Someone else in the room piped in, “Yeah, except Russ. Everybody hates Russ.” To which Russ replied, “Seriously. I can’t stand that guy.”

That’s the vibe we have been fostering for over five years. When smart people get along with each other and love what they do, then they do great things. Everybody here does great work.

In addition to our other current openings for Full-Stack UI DevelopersUser Experience Designer (Visual) and Project Managers, we also need highly experienced Senior Experience Designers to lead the research, strategy and up-front UX work for some pretty cool projects. In short, to do great things.
