We’re proud to announce that we’ve been included in the 2019 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing independent companies in the U.S., as we remain focused on designing and developing the best mobile apps, websites and other digital products for our clients.
This is the eighth consecutive year we’ve made this list—something only 1% of companies have managed in almost 40 years of the Inc. 5000’s history.
Maintaining this level of growth becomes more and more challenging the larger we get. The key has been hiring incredible people and giving them the autonomy to do great things, as encapsulated in our Core Values. What makes our Core Values so powerful is that they were not mandated top-down, but instead were established by all the team members at WillowTree in answer to a simple question, “What do you never want to see change at WillowTree?”
As the mobile development industry continues to evolve, we must ensure we have a culture of constant innovation. We do this by offering our team members one conference to attend a year, one innovation day per quarter as well as an innovation hour each week where team members focus on a project of their choice, as well as a deep focus on constant learning and development with company-wide and team-specific training.
What’s next in digital? We believe two trends will dominate the next two years: the integration of voice technology into every app we build, as well as a rapidly emerging Growth Marketing Practice based on how companies like Uber and Netflix market to their users.
If you’re interested in exploring new ways to engage your digital users, feel free to reach out.
And if the work we do sounds interesting to you, we’re hiring across the board.
