We’re proud to announce that we’ve been included in the 2018 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing independent companies in the U.S., based on the criteria of three-year sustained revenue growth.

This is the seventh consecutive year we’ve made this list—something only 3.5% of companies have managed in almost 40 years of the Inc. 5000’s history.

It’s tough in any industry to maintain the kind of sustained growth required to make this list year over year, but staying at the forefront of the ever-changing tech industry is particularly difficult. For WillowTree, curiosity and innovation are central to helping our clients realize new and exciting visions for reaching their users with world-class digital experiences.

A culture of innovation

Much of our growth is owed to the culture of innovation our team members have nourished at WillowTree since the beginning. With weekly innovation hours and quarterly innovation days set aside for team members to explore cutting-edge technology, we’re constantly working to develop literacy, experience, and capability in the most exciting breakthroughs in tech.

Of course, it’s not enough to simply be curious about how a new technology works; we need to know how—and if—today’s users will engage with them. To this end, we simultaneously perform user research around emerging technologies and concepts to bridge our technical expertise with a holistic, practical understanding of market adoption and user behavior patterns.

This passion for emerging technology and user-based research on the part of our team members has continually positioned us to help our clients be first to market in some of the most exciting new channels for digital customer engagement, such as voice and AR/VR. We’re excited to continue our work at the vanguard of digital innovation.

If you’re interested in exploring new ways to engage your digital users, feel free to reach out.

And if this kind of work sounds interesting to you, we’re hiring across the board.
