Well, This Sounds Like the Most Fun Company Ever
Quick question: Do you consider yourself the type of person who goes to parties—or throws them?
If you’re in the second group, you’ve got good company.
“At Duarte, we’re the party hosts,” says Paula Tesch, content developer.
While Tesch is speaking figuratively, there’s a literal meaning as well. Duarte has a party planning committee that takes its role very seriously. Past events have included “Make Art, Drink Wine,” a employee-centric storytelling series titled “Speak Up,” and “Smash Party”—a birthday party for a co-worker who was gifted a sledgehammer and the green light to smash everything in sight—her birthday dream come true.
“Duarte has a work hard, play hard culture,” explains Ryan Orcutt, the associate creative director. “We’re always cheersing a beer or having a shot to acknowledge our accomplishments.”
Duarte hires first and foremost for culture. That means its office is full of people with diverse interests, backgrounds, and skills—the one thing uniting them all is their passion for the company and their ability to get along really, really well.
Want proof? On Tesch’s content team alone, there’s a debate champion, a journalist, and a screenwriter. Having such unique team members makes Duarte an incredibly interesting, innovative place to work.
“The only things you have to have to be a Duarte person is to be kind, creative, and open to new experiences,” says one employee. “It’s a good home for a lot of different types of people.”
