In an attempt to balance the ol’ work/life balance, HQ started a completely flexible work schedule. It’s kind of a complicated concept so allow us to explain in six easy steps:
Step 1 Monday happens
Step 2 You roll out of bed
Step 3 Put on your HQ embroidered Snuggie
Step 4 Pull out your Laptop
Step 5 Work, Work, Work, Break, Work, Nap?, Work, Work
Step 6 Look at you! You’ve just avoided a case of the Mondays
At HQ, what matters is that we produce great work and make our clients happy. That doesn't always require you to come into the office. You never need to ask permission to leave, to work at home, to go on vacation, etc. Doing great work is the only requirement.
On point? Is this what the youth are saying now? Nevermind, we’ll ask our interns. Our office is located in the heart of downtown Ogden at Startup Ogden. In a past life our buildling was home to “Mountain States Implement Company”, a farm supply store for ancient Ogdenites. It’s now home to a growing entreprenurial tech community. The open floor plan lends itself to collaboration and the exposed brick with distressed hardwood floors are a homage to Ogden’s rich history.
We don't have multiple layers of management and you don't need permission to try something new. We work with the most cutting edge technologies and push the envelope with new ideas. We move too fast to ever get bored.
We are very lucky work with funded startups, corporate enterprises, and small businesses. This means we get to make things for all sorts of industries. Almost every project we start has a unique problem for us to solve: designing complicated web dashboards, developing social mobile apps, creating a new website design for an existing company, or branding a new one. Our clients trust our judgement and allow us to explore to find the correct design solution for their market.
The HQ team partakes in various traditions and activites. There’s never a dull moment and always something to look forward to. And no we’re not talking about casual Fridays.
