SPRINGBOX / Insights

Springbox named one of the nation’s Best and Brightest. See why we love it here.

by Springbox Social Team, January 27, 2017

When you love what you do and, just as important, where you work, it shows. For the second year in a row, Springbox has been recognized as one of the 101 Best and Brightest Companies to work for. It’s an award we’re honored to receive, especially because it spotlights something that’s incredibly important to our agency: our culture. Ask any ‘Boxer why they enjoy working here and they’ll be more than happy to give you a long list of reasons. Here are a few of our favorites.

We have (unlimited) love for vacations. 

To places like Iceland. And Spain. And even … the car dealership. With unlimited time off, the world is our oyster. Need a day to run errands? Go for it! Want to hike in the Rockies for two weeks? You can do that, too. We understand that work and life should be well-balanced. And that taking time off when needed is essential to refresh, relax and then return, ready to take on what’s next. 

 

We welcome coworkers with tails.

Ziggy. Dakota. Emmylou. Sweatpants.* These are just a few of the cheerful canines that walk through the office on any given day. They keep us company in meetings, entertain us while we work and sometimes even teach us about responsive design. We’ve got 17 dogs in all, and every one is paws-itively (sorry) delightful to work with.

*Yes. We actually have a dog named Sweatpants.

We stress less. And asana more.

When you work as hard as we do, it’s important to take breaks every now and then. Ours just happen to include yoga. Once a week, we make time during lunch for some great meditation and chaturangas. And, if the weather’s nice (read: not too hot), you might even find us in tree pose on the roof of our building. It’s the perfect way to clear our heads before diving back into work. Say it with us: Ommmm...

 

We’re deep in the heart of Austin.

There’s something special about Austin, Texas. The city’s creative energy is unmatched, and it’s technologically innovative spirit is everywhere. In fact, we see it — and harness it — every day. Whether we’re gearing up for SXSW, catching a live show at Antone’s or kayaking on Lady Bird Lake, Springbox is proud to call Austin our home for the past 12 years. (The breakfast tacos are pretty great, too.)

We have fun. And we give back.

Yes, it’s true that we’re the agency ping-pong champions of Austin. And that we throw a great Stranger Things Halloween party. But it’s also true that we raised $11K and paddleboarded a collective 84 miles for individuals whose family members have been affected by cancer. And that we delivered hundreds of meals to Austin’s homeless population. Whether we’re partying for a good cause or partying just ‘cause, we genuinely enjoy spending time together.

… And we do great work.

Great culture draws great talent. With over 100 applicants per job opening, we’re able to select the best digital-savvy minds in Austin. And from those minds comes great work. Every day, we’re excited to put our expertise and skills as creative problem solvers to the test, building successful business solutions for our partners — and having fun while we do it.
