Why It's Great to Work at Treefrog

Loving what you do means being in touch with the kid who loved to tell stories, or sell lemonade or care for lost puppies. At Treefrog, we genuinely love what we do, so in effect, we’re energized kids with the seasoned perspective of adults – and that’s a great place to be! Here we’ll show you how working at Treefrog allows you to do great things while having a great time, with others who want the same.

A strong positive culture, firmly grounded in a meaningful purpose.

Treefrog offers an environment that supports and rewards excellence, honesty, mutual support, and fair dealing; where people get great results and they’re treated well - and neither is optional. That’s meaningful!

We’re unique because we view our work as play and our co-workers like family. Some might say we’re quirky overachievers but we see ourselves as bringing "living innovation" to everything we do. This means constantly bring our passion for all that is creative, visionary and inspirational to our job.

We fervently believe that you need to have fun to be successful and that through supporting each other we can take greater risks.

Work that requires you to stretch your brain and skills.

We like to figure things out, to get good at things, to crack codes and solve problems and make breakthroughs. We recognize and call upon this built-in human attraction to challenging work. We are consistently and fully engaged. A great example of this is Friday’s Learn O’Clock, when all the Frogs get together to share and develop their skills.

The opportunity to work with people you like and respect.

We don’t hire people who are dishonest, narcissistic, abusive, prejudiced, lazy, etc. We’d describe ourselves as being fun-loving, informal, uninhibited people but at the same time knowledgeable and professional. We proactively ask employees for their opinion on a regular basis, and allow people to speak their mind without fear.

Real chances to grow professionally.

Treefrog looks for ways to match employees’ skills and passions with our organization’s needs. We do this through good old-fashioned observation and conversation. We openly discuss what the individual is good at doing and we regularly converse with each person to find out what he or she is interested in learning or doing, and how he or she would like to see his or her career unfold.

If you have a passion for learning, love variety and challenging your limits, and the idea of having the freedom to create and improvise in your job appeals to you,
you will be hard-pressed to find another environment with such an engaging work culture.

From the moment you walk into our office, you should know that this is a different place with an exciting future.
