Decision-makers exist at 540, but everyone is considered a leader. The decentralized management style feels flat because the division of work is equal. Plus, roles are shaped to fit individuals based on technical strengths—and professional interests. This personalization also affords employees tons of responsibility and initiative—which circles back to the reason constant oversight isn’t needed.

There’s no shortage of action around the office because team members constantly buzz from one client site to another, so 540 holds a monthly gathering to sync up over lunch—and a fun field trip follows. Aside from regular volunteering and team-building activities, the crew also prides itself on its signature API cocktail—reserved for special occasions.
