Our values

HATFEE: Honesty, Authenticity, Teamwork, Fun, Empathy and being Exceptional (we forked our values from Moz.com's TAGFEE.)

We're a company of ±30 at present, with a ~30% annual growth rate expected over the next year or two. We're small enough to care (and know everyone around you). Yet big enough to have a mature environment and treat people with respect.

We've been operating since 2002. Both co-founders are still directing the business.

Why work for us?

  • Work with various technologies. We believe in “right tool for the job”.
  • Relatively short project cycles (1-6 months) comprised of 1-2 week sprints.
  • Work "client side". None of the chaos of agency life. We focus on quality work, not churning out as many billable hours as possible.
  • Your work is highly used. Thousands of users engage with our front-end websites and back-end systems daily, so everything you build has meaning.
  • Fair pay, for your valuable time.
  • A pleasant and work-focussed environment.
