    Life at Delve

    We realize that you are making a big decision when considering a new job. You must think about salary, the inherent satisfaction you will get from your work and whether you will enjoy your colleagues. We all spend a lot of time at work and realize that little stuff can make the difference between being happy and productive or grumpy and wanting out. So, we’ve done our best to build a culture, adapted from some of the world’s best companies, that represents our personal values and that is flexible to each studio’s unique proclivities. Here are a few things we think make Delve a safe, fun and joyful place to be…

    • Ergonomic workspaces, collaborative work areas and access to natural light for those who want it, or dark and quiet areas for those who don’t.
    • A professional development budget and autonomy to find opportunities (conferences, training, etc) that interest you.
    • Tuition reimbursement
    • Unlimited snacks with a bias toward healthy stuff like shelled pistachios but still plenty of questionable choices like jellybeans
    • Flexible vacation policy
    • Access to the prototype machine shop tools and materials (laser cutter, mills, wood shop, etc.)
    • Access to 3D printers for personal use (Stratasys FDM and FormLabs Form2 SLA)
    • Dog friendly office
    • Flexible work hours and ability to work remotely occasionally (or all the time during Covid)
    • Volunteering opportunities
    • Partial cell phone and fitness reimbursement
    • Open book financials and transparent leadership communication

    Be inspired. Be inspiring. Be yourself.

    Delve doesn’t advocate for “culture fit,” which can lead to homogeneity and thereby weaker companies. We look for “culture add”-- individuals who share the team’s values and professional ethics, but also bring their own diverse experiences and backgrounds to the table.
