There's an endless list of reasons why we choose to work at Six Feet Up. Here are the main ones:

Human-Friendly

It's fashionable to promote work environments as "green" and "eco-friendly" to show a pledge to the planet. At Six Feet Up, we go further and strive for a human-friendly environment. We focus on building a great company culture that values each person's skills, natural abilities and interests. 

This begins with an acknowledgement that everyone has different needs starting with technical equipment and going all the way to our physical environment. Some of us are on an exercise ball, some are wrapped in their favorite blankets, others work standing up. A small group of Sixies swear by their treadmill desks. Most of us have cats on our desks, or dogs on our laps. At a time, we even had a pig and a skunk as emotional support animals.

And it's not unusual to hear or see a baby cooing next to a new parent, a toddler playing with cubes quietly in one corner, or an unwashed teenager minecrafting in the background.

Inclusive & Diverse by Strategy

We, at Six Feet Up, have always been inclusive and diverse by choice. Frankly, we see this policy (see our Non-Discrimination Policy below) as being a strategic advantage. We understand the value of having a gender and age-balanced staff. We love hiring team members with uncommon backgrounds and characteristics as we know this myriad of different and innovative perspectives is only making us stronger. This approach has proved very resilient through inevitable ups and downs and a huge asset when problem solving.

Flexibility

The average person spends a third of their life working. Thanks to ubiquitous emails, instant messages and social media pokes, we are now all carrying work into our personal lives. We believe it is therefore only fair for personal matters to squeeze in between office commitments.

Sixies are paid by the hour and have the ability to "catch up" after a medical appointment, a baseball game or any other personal occurrence that takes place during business hours. Of course this is only possible with careful coordination with the team, which is why good communication is at the core of our success.

Sixies have been known to save the day from places like hospitals, gas stations, pedicure spas, medical offices, cruise ships, taekwondo tournaments, conferences and other playgrounds.

Open

We carry our commitment to open source into company management. We ensure transparency by sharing company news, celebrations, strategy and results. We ask for input to determine our journey and encourage everyone to share their ideas.

Every quarter we gather everyone and go over our 10-year target, 3-year picture, 1-year plan and quarterly goals. Every week we get together and share personal stories as well as office wins. Everyday we gather to report back and ask for or offer help. Open and working together are key values at Six Feet Up.

Continuous Innovation

We live in a world of constant transformation. Therefore we are all encouraged to try new things and improve the way we serve our clients: new tools, new technologies, new gadgets, new processes, new methodologies, etc. Sixies are encouraged to bring up new ideas to help the company thrive. Many of us attend a variety of conferences to learn about novelties and new ideas out there.

ShipIt Day

In his book Drive, Daniel Pink described "ShipIt Days" as a tool to develop intrinsic motivation in a team.

During ShipIt Day, Sixies work on a project of their choice that they have to deliver within a 24 hour period of time. People can choose who to work with, and how to work on their project. The company just makes sure they have the tools and resources they need. Teams often work on a project that has been pushed to the back burner repeatedly or on something that adds value but is not necessary for the daily function of the office. It could be a new idea, a prototype of a product, or a better internal process. The main requirement is that it must benefit the company.

Six Feet Up is having ShipIt Days at each of our two annual retreats. Each event is an endless source of amazement at what can be achieved in 24 hours when motivation and "flow" are the driving forces.

Remote Ready Always

We have had remote Sixies for as long as we can remember. Everything is therefore organized around the concept of having team members not physically present. In our office, you'll find very little paper-based documentation and little use of whiteboards. Instead, we have a solid online chat and video conference culture. Everything is done online so remote Sixies, clients and partners can participate just as much as if they were in the office.

Open Positions

Six Feet Up is currently looking to fill the following positions. Please see the descriptions below for more information.

IMPORTANT: Six Feet Up uses a data-driven approach to hiring. Before reviewing skills on a resume, Six Feet Up asks all potential employees to take personality assessments including The Predictive Index, Kolbe A and DiSC. These assessments help ensure a non-biased approach to hiring.

Although we list out what we generally look for, we are very likely missing other attributes and skills that you have that could make you a great fit, but are not currently listed. Research has shown this especially applies to women and other marginalized groups, who tend to apply if they check 100% of every box, versus men who apply if they hit roughly 60%. The point we're getting at, it doesn't hurt to take a chance and apply!

We look forward to meeting you!
