Our formula for happiness is simple — inspiring clients, interesting challenges and talented, genuine people.
The Strategy & Management discipline leads the way we work. Our team is tasked with uncovering business goals, crafting strategic frameworks, fostering collaboration, and encouraging a spirit of applied learning.
Product Design defines the way products work, look and feel. We look for hybrid visual and UX designers that can bring designs to life through prototypes. We’re strategically grounded, detail oriented, and systems minded.
Agency Operations defines our brand and how our agency works. We work cross-functionally, collaborating across disciplines to evolve the product that is our agency. We’re creative, thoughtful and efficient.
Free Association believes in a culture of inclusion. We welcome different backgrounds and perspectives and encourage everyone to bring their authentic selves to work.
Our agency is designed to deliver fulfilling careers and provide for a life well-lived. We create an environment that is supportive, focused, flexible and inspiring.
We trust our teammates to get the work done and are flexible when it comes to working remotely. We also prioritize talent over location, embracing remote collaboration across 10 different states.
We believe in quality over quantity. Time is made for every teammate to have thorough, thoughtful and consistent feedback. On average, each manager has 2 or less direct reports.
We get out of the office and create space to connect with each other on a personal level. A healthy dose of team lunches, happy hours, and outings enhance our collaboration inside of the office.
We nurture curiosity and foster a sense of discovery with weekly Open Studios sessions, an annual FA Academy week, and a constant flow of inspiration from the world of design.
Our company is united by a commitment to craft and a desire to elevate ourselves. We have designed a structure intent on the cross-pollination of ideas, sharing of insights, and development of new skills.
We believe a zen space creates a zen mind. Join us in Brooklyn or Oakland for good music, good eats and good company — or we’ll help set you up for remote comfort and serenity.
