About us Balloonfish exists
for a reason.
(and it's not the one you're used to.)

We spend so much of our time working – more than anything else, really. So why does it so often feel like we’re just working to get to the “good stuff.” Can’t work be the good stuff, too? We don’t expect to be the best part of your day (hopefully not, anyway). That should belong to things like friends, family and hobbies. But we want to make work a feel-good experience, too.

We aim to provide as much value as possible while being profitable and leaving people who work with us feeling good. How?

  • We keep our overhead costs (like office space) low so we can invest more into our people and clients’ work
  • We find the most efficient path to client success via marketing strategy and tactics
  • We believe all people should be treated the same way you would want to be treated, regardless of their position on the org chart
  • We give people the tools they need to succeed and empower them to be in control of their destiny
  • We reward hard work without taking advantage of others
  • We find or make solutions through tenacity and ingenuity, rather than handing it off
  • We make time for leisure to get the best from people at work
  • We believe in a truly flexible work environment
  • We keep a mindset of “what’s the best that can happen?”
