Salties

Genuine. Hard-Working. Nerds.

We don’t work hard solely for our clients. We work hard for each other. We’re a team in the truest sense of the term – think 2013 World Series champion Boston Red Sox or the 2011 Stanley Cup-winning Boston Bruins. Just as important as not disappointing a client is not disappointing each other. And when the work day is done, if everybody is working in that same spirit, the satisfaction is a little greater, the beer is a little colder, and the night’s sleep is a little sounder.

Salty Snippet

The blue whale, which lives in the ocean, is the largest animal to ever roam our planet. Its heart is said to be the size of a Volkswagen.

Master of Their Craft

While we believe in identifying and then nurturing young talent when it's released into the wild, we’re not comprised primarily of entry level employees and interns. Among our ranks are experienced developers, designers, writers, media buyers, account service execs. Each of us is an expert in our specific discipline, so when you work with us, you get the aggregate collection of all that knowledge, experience and expertise.
