The Culture

Kinvey is a team in every sense of the word - we have each other's backs. We thrive in a completely transparent work environment where everyone, from CEO to intern, knows everything. We're constantly putting our heads together and bouncing ideas off each other. Triumphs big and small are celebrated with high-fiving and much reveling - a "you're the (wo)man now, dog" may even slip out.

You're surrounded by smart, multi-talented people whose passion and hard work ethic are contagious - as is the fun, laid-back nature of the work environment. Every day is casual Friday... but without the Hawaiian shirts (unless, of course, that's your style.) We're always up for a good laugh: "backend" jokes and puns are our specialty. You might even catch us singing and dancing for our next music video.
