Life as a Highlander
Since 1999, our team of researchers, strategists, designers, developers, business consultants, and implementers has helped organizations launch and implement hundreds of digital products—turning their biggest uncertainties into opportunities for growth.
- Do purposeful and meaningful work that impacts human flourishing.
- Question everything openly and fearlessly. Challenge each other.
- Work in flexible, hybrid work rhythms.
- Belong to small, dedicated project teams.
- Deliver work at a sustainable pace, with project work at 32-36 hours per week and limited travel.
What we make and how we make it should make it a little bit better to be alive: for us, our clients, and their customers.
Our client's goals are our goals. We share the passion for the work you do and the impact it can have. We do work we can be proud of: quality is non-negotiable.
The big picture is everyone's responsibility. There is always more to learn, and we are generous in sharing what we know.
We're accountable to our clients and to each other, and respond to problems with solutions, not blame. Vulnerability, while risky, leads to trust and understanding.
We welcome differences
As a deeply people-oriented company, we think it matters which voices are represented on our team. We currently nurture a team with previous lives in art, theology, architecture, philosophy, industrial design, and many others. All in all, we’re proud to be bringing the humanities to technology.
Having a diverse range of lived experiences at Highland means there’s a deeper well of knowledge to draw from when we’re connecting with a new client or solving complex problems. Highland is proudly committed to nurturing a culture of diversity and inclusion.
