A cure for the common culture
We embrace continual change
At Hinge, we thrive on change. It’s how we grow year after year. And it’s what gives our clients an edge. While we find magic in all this motion, we’re the first to admit it’s not everyone’s cup of joe. But if shaking things up gives you a thrill, we think you’ll like it here.
Hinge builds strong culture 3 ways
We’re dedicated to learning and growth
We do unprecedented, ongoing research into the professional services marketplace. We learn what works, use it ourselves and teach it to our clients. What does this mean for you? You’ll be continually learning new things, training others and growing.
We own our commitments
When we make a promise—to a client or a fellow team member—we keep it. Clients hold Hinge to a higher standard, so we have to have high standards ourselves. It’s how we make our business better every year!
We’ve got each others’ backs
At Hinge, we succeed and fail together. No gloating. No finger pointing. You can relax, because when the going gets tough, your team has your back. Just as we’re there for our clients, we’re there for each other. We even take time each week to publicly appreciate team members’ help and contributions. It’s how we run.
Be remote. But don’t be a stranger.
Even before everyone masked up and headed for the hills, Hinge understood the remote lifestyle. Today, more than a third of our employees live far from our Northern Virginia headquarters—and our away team gets bigger every year. In fact, by embracing remote workers we can attract the best people, no matter where they live.
But being remote doesn’t mean being disconnected. We work very hard to make sure every person is an active collaborator, is part of our non-work social activities and never feels left behind. And at least once a year (once it’s safe again to do so), we fly them to our offices to get to know the people behind the cameras.
With a name like Hinge, we have to be flexible
Life happens, so we’ve built our business to accommodate the unpredictable demands of living. We’re flexible when you need us to be. And when you need help or have a new idea, every person in the organization is accessible—our minds, like our doors, are always open.
We have big ambitions to grow our firm and revolutionize the professional services marketplace. But we know how to enjoy life along the way. We organize regular celebrations and happy hours (in person and virtual) where staff can kick back and get to know each other. So while our work is important to us, we try hard to keep the office lively and fun.
