Our Team.

Putting ampersands in job titles since 2005.

Top talent can exist anywhere, so location is a secondary consideration when hiring the best. While we’re based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, we have team members in several cities around the U.S. We’ve mastered the art of operating a distributed team, which is not that difficult with self-motivated individuals.


We are humans. We have passion in our hearts, sweat on our brows, and laughter in our bellies. We are greater than our job titles, and in many ways work and life balance each other and make us better. We're whole people with a desire to enjoy the moments in life that truly matter, like sinking that perfect Nerf Hoops shot.

    Jeff has always said that if it's not fun, it's not worth it. From a stint on reality television to a passion for music and the arts, Jeff has always wanted to try and do everything. While he's a lifelong violinist and soccer player, he's continually inspired by his family and friends to explore the world, try new things, do better, be more, and, most importantly, to always keep learning.
