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.
