8 reasons you should work at Fell Swoop

Variety


Work on challenging projects with an extraordinary and diverse client list that includes brands like: Facebook, The New Yorker, Virgin, Microsoft Windows, and many more.

Balance


Enjoy the perks of a company that truly values work-life balance with a generous PTO policy.

Choice


The ability to set up your workspace your way, that including standing desks and the ability to ‘spec’ your own hardware.

Food


Catered lunch on Fridays, always copious snacks in the snack drawer. Occasional donuts. Waffles anyone?

Location


Our office is in the heart of downtown Seattle. We are near Pike Place Market, the Seattle Waterfront, and the downtown Retail Core.

Benefits


Work at a small company but enjoy the benefits of a large one: competitive salary, medical/dental/vision insurance, profit sharing and a company-sponsored retirement plan.

Flexibility


The quest for ideas sometimes takes you away from your desk, and some days you just need to focus and crank it out. Tuesdays and Thursdays at Fell Swoop are flex days. Work where you like as long as it gets done.

Dogs


Furry family members are welcome. But no biting or peeing on the floor (that includes employees too).

Swoop Values

We’re in it for more than the money. We want to do great work, and treat each other well while doing it. These core values drive our decisions and our behavior:

Honesty


Integrity matters. We do the right thing, even when nobody’s looking.

Tenacity


We relish challenges and strive for better in everything we do, from internal process to client-facing work.

Empathy


We hear and champion the interests and perspectives of others: users, clients, and colleagues alike.

Pragmatism


We choose what works, keeping products and processes lean and focused.

Collaboration


We believe the best ideas come from giving everyone a seat at the table and bringing diverse perspectives together.

Service


We take a “white glove” approach to service, always looking for ways to do more rather than less and empowering our clients to focus on what matters to them.

Selflessness


No drama, no ego–each person pulls their hardest for the good of all. Great ideas always win.

Imagination


Simplicity requires creativity. We challenge conventional wisdom to break through the obvious to the amazing.
