1. Take care of each other

2. Collaborate

3. Produce amazing work

4. Speak up

Four values define the Big Spaceship experience and institutionalize our culture of shared ownership, which consistently produces outstanding, effective work. They foster a relaxed environment where all employees feel comfortable punching above their weight. As an organization with minimal hierarchy, you can feel confident suggesting the outlandish—we’ve got your back.

For a recent hack day, a few folks wrote and illustrated a book explaining the way we work in detail. It’s called Our Manual.

In addition to getting to work with friendly people in the greatest borough in the greatest city in the world, we offer a wide range of professional perks. We’re proud to have been named one of AdAge’s Best Places to Work for three years in a row.

BASICS

  • Health, Dental, Vision Insurance
  • Transit Check
  • Generous PTO
  • Office closed between Christmas & New Years

SHOW & TELL

We frequently invite interesting people from a variety of backgrounds to share their experience with us. These are extraordinary opportunities.

FRIDAY BREAKFAST

Bagel or egg log? The debate goes on.

SNACKS, BEER & HOT SAUCE

The kitchen is well-stocked, and anything not labeled for personal use is fair game. The beer is almost never labeled.

HACK DAYS

The world was made to be hacked, and our hack day is one of the most beloved Big Spaceship traditions. Every so often, we pause all our usual work and break into small teams. Then we spend all day (and all night) creating something that makes the world a better place. The next morning, everyone presents what they’ve made. It’s something you’ll never forget.

RUN CLUB / WHISKEY CLUB

Work hard, play hard.

We don’t segregate people by department. Instead, you’ll sit with the other people who are working on your project. This means you’ll have daily contact with some of the most talented strategists, designers and technologists in the business.

We often say “we love professionals, we hate professionalism.” We’re not big on offices or hierarchy, but we are big on collaboration and straight talk. Like our Brooklyn home, we’re friendly, we’re playful and sometimes we break the rules. We’re an independent bunch, and we look for disciplined self-starters.
