Culture

thinkPARALLAX is headquartered in Southern California with employees distributed across the country. We are an agile, tight-knit team united by passion, curiosity, and a desire to make an impact through our work. We are known for industry-leading standards of quality that combine strategic thinking, meaningful collaboration, and creativity. And while we are as serious and professional as the most corporate client, we believe in bringing a sense of levity and fun to all that we do. In addition to being a certified B Corporation, we are deeply committed to celebrating diversity and creating an inclusive workplace where employees are encouraged to be their authentic selves.

This year, our team is traveling to destinations within the United States to explore the wide range of cultures that exist within our own borders.
