A LITTLE ABOUT THE TEAM

“My only wish is that I had the opportunity to work at Philosophie earlier in my career. At Philosophie, you gain real experience building products. This, on top of the mentorship and thought-leadership here, deeply prepares us to be innovative in our own lives and careers.”
—Product Strategist, LA

At Philosophie, we love making things. We are a diverse team of designers, engineers, and product strategists. With different backgrounds and skill-sets, we come together to make meaningful technology. Our clients (Fortune 500 to startups) come to us with innovative digital product ideas, and we bring those ideas to life. We believe in agile design, rapid prototyping, and software craftsmanship. The team is trusted to make decisions collaboratively and lead the client to a successful outcome. We’ve been around for almost a decade, but we still apply a startup mentality to everything we do. We work out of our beautiful, creatively inspired offices in Los Angeles and New York. Our culture is deeply collaborative, empowering, kind, and ethical.

LAST, BUT NOT LEAST

At Philosophie, we believe that different perspectives lead to better ideas, and better ideas lead to better products. We've designed our company to be responsive to employees: good ideas are heard and easy to execute on. We champion people of different backgrounds and perspectives. We do not discriminate; we are committed to building a diverse and inclusive work environment. We consider all qualified applicants, including those with criminal histories.
