What's it like working at Slingshot?

We call ourselves big kids and daredevils because we like to have fun, but we also like to challenge ourselves and our clients. Everyone here is incredibly talented and we push each other to be better. Designer and developer collaboration is a regular thing. As a developer, we want you to continue to learn and hone your craft. Designers will be talking with fellow designers and product managers on a daily basis, and hopefully adding to our wall of post-it doodles.

As a member of the slingshot team, we expect everyone to speak their mind when they have an idea and challenge and respect their coworkers. We play Jenga tournaments, have a ball pit conference room, and begin every meeting by the ringing of a gong. We have some meetings that are all business, but our bourbon corner with the bright yellow couch and bean bags shows we balance work and fun. We are no ordinary tech company. We are who we are, because of the people who work here: a bunch of Big Kids and Daredevils.
