OUR TEAM

The “Who” Behind the Work

Individually Gifted, Unstoppable Together

At Behind the Work, we understand that companies are only as strong as the people they are built out of. Since day one, we have committed to bringing together the best and brightest minds – people who care just as much about the work we do as we care about building a company worth working for.

OUR VALUES

We Keep It Real

Honesty comes first among our team. We aren’t afraid to be wrong, and our programs are flexible, adapting around our clients’ measurement of marketing success. If we see something that isn’t working or a way to improve upon our marketing strategy, we’ll be the first to say it.

We Get The Job Done

Mudita is the Sanskrit word for sympathetic joy, and defines how we see success both within our teams and for the people we work with. We delight in the accomplishments of our customers, and are driven to push the best results on their behalf. A win for our clients is a win for us!

We Learn From Each Other

Our team comes from a diverse set of skills and backgrounds. We are lifelong learners who educate ourselves as well as our clients to become well-rounded experts in the field of marketing. Continuous education is core to our business.
