I knew this was a solid company to work with when I realized that the interview process was as much about what Chromatic can do for me as it was about what I could bring to the team. The time I have spent with Chromatic has consistently lived up to that promise.

If you asked me what it is like to work here, I’d tell you about 'Thanksgiving' dinner at the Chromatic annual retreat. I can picture the long table we set up outside surrounded by unique, talented individuals. The candles were anchored in the tiny award trophies we handed out earlier that day. The dishes were full of amazing homemade food. Glasses were raised in toasts of gratitude followed closely by waves of emotion from both managers and employees. We all celebrated the good work we’d done and were buzzing about new ideas ahead of us. It was quite literally an amazing and lovely moment where I thought to myself, 'Wow. This is all because of a job.'
