Why Work For Us

Wunderman Thompson is not for everyone, but it's perfect for some people:

People that are inspired and motivated by the opportunity to do the best work of their lives;
People that want to learn new things;
People that have side projects and hobbies that are basically the same as their jobs because there's so much to learn;
People who's hobbies are completely different from their jobs, because most of life doesn't happen on the internet;
Musical people;
Detail people;
Idea people.

We believe that if you love your job it's easy to be great at it, so we're creating an environment where the right people will love their jobs, and do work that they and we are proud of.

Our Culture

We're a group of young, talented, responsible people working together in an environment that's more about trust and collaboration than rules and standards. We're creating an environment where team members come to the office because they want to, not because they have to, and get their work done because they want to, not because they're told to.

We're always learning and growing and improving in the process, both personally and as a business.

Our Engineering Processes

We work in small, multi-disciplinary teams headed up by a Tech Lead and a Project Manager, as much as possible, we like to work in an agile methodology, working closely together with: Designers, Usability and our Clients.

Where possible (and relevant) we employ all the good things: Responsive Design, Continuous Integration, Automated Testing and Solid Analytics implementations.

Our Hiring Process

Once you've applied online we'll give you a call to talk through any open positions we think you might be suited to.

If we're both excited at the prospect of working together we'll set up an interview at our offices where you can get a sense of the office vibe, and we get to talk through some technical scenarios.

Lastly, we have a practical technical assessment which covers the nuts are bolts of the specific technologies you'll be working with.

We normally know very quickly who the right people are, and don't need to drag our feet ;)
