Our Culture

At Platypus, we encourage two things: cross-departmental collaboration, and go-getter attitudes. We look for team players that are capable of the mental gymnastics that is synonymous with problem solving. Greatness inspires greatness–and our diverse departments take pride in building off of each others successes to create productive relationships with our clients and develop the best, most effective products in the industry. Opportunities are aplenty all throughout our offices–anybody can carve out their own niche and make significant contributions from day one. Head down nine-to-fivers need not apply; they probably wouldn’t thrive in the organized chaos our environment naturally breeds!

 

Of course, that’s not to say we’re all business all the time. At Platypus monthly birthday parties, holidays big and small, and morale-boosting events are all revered! Nerf guns are king, viral videos get their air time, and daily therapeutic walks are always the norm. And of course, ping pong. Lots of ping pong. If you can picture yourself contributing to this tempest of pure creativity, then apply today, we would love to have you stay awhile!
