Working at Parade is a bit different. We care immensely about doing the highest level of work in our industry, so we expect everyone to be at the top of their game, every day. But, in an effort to buck the trend in the creative world, we also care about work life balance, and we invest heavily in our people. We also adhere to a few key cultural beliefs that ensure our work environment is creatively stimulating and healthy.
We think it’s a win-win for everyone, and that’s probably why our team loves coming to work everyday (just ask).
At Parade, design is a team sport. There is no caste system, and no roles are more important than others. We’re insanely, bonkers collaborative; not just with each other, but with our clients. We enforce a flat hierarchy, and we treat our client-side counterparts as equals. The result is happy people, happy partners, and great work.
Parade is located in downtown San Francisco, in the bustling Union Square neighborhood. We’re surrounded by terrific food options, excellent shopping, and are just a block from pretty much every mass transit option in the bay area— including BART, all the MUNI subway lines and the Market Street bus corridor.
It’s a poor carpenter that blames their tools. But hammers don’t become obsolete every two years, either. We expect the most of our team, so we make sure that everything—your laptop, the network, even the coffee machines—are top-tier, modern and functioning flawlessly, every day.
Baudelaire said that ‘Inspiration comes of working every day,’ and that’s true—to a point. Every once and a while, it’s good to let your hair down. That’s why we invest heavily in fun. From our office sound system to our twice-a-year parties and occasional impromptu team lunch outings, we try to make work a little less like work.
