Working for Bottle Rocket
We do not use Windows machines. We are a 100% Mac organization. We all know the iPhone, iPad and Android inside and out. Most of us stood in line to get our personal devices when they first came out. We’re very positive-minded and don’t get along with people who aren’t. We work as a team. We’re mature, self-driven professionals who bring our past experience to the table and check our egos at the door. We love our craft and do what it takes to get the job done. We believe in accountability and sometimes find ourselves catching up on work in the evening and weekends. We build excellent applications with only the highest standards. We value aesthetics and UI. We work hard and have fun doing it. We love the iPhone, iPad and Android and believe mobile is the most important platform, period.
