Why WillowTree?

We offer a place to be yourself.

WillowTree promotes a culture of makers who are passionately curious about their craft. We hire innovative, growth-minded talent and provide them with the reach and resources to achieve remarkable results. And we give them the autonomy to work in whatever way works best for them.

Our strength lies in the longevity of our cross-discipline teams, who not only work side-by-side on a project from concept to delivery, but are acknowledged as its experts. Decisions are made from within teams, not from the top down.

We lead by example. And by design.

Mentorship at WillowTree is more than just a catchphrase—it’s the structural integrity of our team’s foundation.

WillowTree is a community of smart, talented people. Which might be intimidating—if those people weren’t also approachable, generous with their time, and straight up fun to be around.

From all-hands Q&As to open-forum Slack channels, we champion sharing ideas and asking tough questions. Our team-centric philosophy emphasizes building trust, receiving guidance, and clearing communication pathways at all levels of leadership.

All WillowTree team members are assigned both short- and long-term mentors who serve as sounding boards for project challenges, providers of radically candid feedback, and trusted guides on career paths forward.


No better place to grow.

We flex the limits of our skills to see what we can accomplish—for our clients and beyond.

While we are dedicated to helping our clients solve problems, our capabilities can reach even farther when we’re given time to invest in our own learning.

Team members are expected to utilize 85% of their time on client work, leaving an intentional window for other personal and WT-related goals. From social impact projects to professional development, these pursuits round out a work experience that’s unique, fulfilling, and less prone to burn out.

Doors at WillowTree are always, often literally, open. We foster an environment of learning by observation and participation: sit in on a team meeting, listen to a lunchtime lecture, or take part in a community-wide challenge. When we model curiosity and call upon ourselves to be both teachers and students, everyone gains.

Inclusive teams create better solutions.

When our teams look as varied as the people we serve, we can think bigger, collaborate deeper, and solve more globally.

We aim to build teams with diverse backgrounds, skills, and perspectives to enhance problem solving and foster innovation. Through action-oriented initiatives, we are committed to creating an environment of inclusion—a place where every Tree can thrive.

In 2020, we launched our first annual diversity and inclusion survey as a benchmark for transparent reporting and to track progress towards our inclusivity goals.

Our Employee Resource Groups offer safe spaces for team members with non-majority identities or experiences to connect. Through mission and goal setting, mentorship, and specific measurable outcomes, our ERGs are designed to genuinely impact positive change and create opportunities for company-wide support and accountability.

Leveling the playing field for tech’s future.

We are dedicated to contributing our resources to charities and nonprofits, with the goal of bridging the digital divide.

Through our social impact efforts, we hope to improve access to technology for women and minorities—a deficiency that puts these groups at a disadvantage for economic success and results in a lack of diversity in the tech industry.

Through our Community Outreach program, each WT office partners with a local organization that focuses on technology access, education, and mentorship for underrepresented youth. School visits, volunteer work, and community events offer ways for team members to get out and give back.

Learn more about our partner organizations and other ways that WillowTree is dedicated to making a social impact—such as through our Whitney French Digital Design Scholarship for women, the Pledge 1% network, and our support of the fight against racial injustice.
