What do you enjoy most about working at Snap? There are three things that I enjoy most about working at Snap. First, I get to see my folks learn, grow and become better people and professionals. Second, our team has the privilege of helping create solutions for our clients. There’s something really special about partnering with clients to assist in the growth of their business and being a part of it. Finally, learning and coaching are my great passions and both happen every single day. What inspires you? I am inspired by watching the Snap team grow and become better. Perfection is to constantly change and our group wants to change often and for the right reasons. An item on my bucket list is to grow a company to bigger than any of the individuals. I’m checking off an item every day I come into work. My favorite animated movie is Wall-E. Not because of the political/health undertones but because my impersonation of Wall-E makes my wife and kid smile every time.

Tim

Tim Brown

Interaction Designer/UX Designer Creating websites that convey companies unique awesomeness drives Tim to design, develop, and test websites with (non-designing) people. Besides being a web designer he fancies himself a bit of a rock musician, painter, nature and fitness lover and culture vulture.

My role at Snap is to help people get the word out about their remarkable products and services. I happen to do that with code and visual design, but it’s always with the mind that we want to help connect people, and empower business owners and marketing professionals. I like working at Snap because of the emphasis on work and life balance. To me this is very important, and we do better work when we have time to relax as well. One thing on the bucket list is to backpack Europe. Favorite vacation spot would be Paris… or Italy, I don’t really know yet.

At Snap, marketing is what we make it.

And we make it fun.

Our employees are an eclectic mix of global citizens with one commonality: Be the best we can at what we love to do.

Internet marketing isn’t just about sharing photos on Facebook. (Although, yes we encourage our employees to “waste time” on social media.) It’s about setting goals, making progress and seeing lives change in the process. For example,

  • A once fledgling mom and pop store looks to Snap to bring their local SEO efforts into the year 2014.

  • A medical patient seeking the best treatment online can now find it through a website designed by Snap, which easily informs them of crucial information.

  • A big business is having trouble communicating to their consumer base on Facebook. Snap’s ability to harness the power of the community through social media marketing helps both parties get the most from the relationship.
