Rocket Insights Company Overview

Rocket Insights (part of Dept) is growing fast and we're looking for folks that want to work with peers and clients that enjoy and build great products together.  Our philosophy is to hire smart, client facing engineers that can both understand our client’s business goals and write elegant code.

With offices in Boston, Newburyport MA, and New York City, Rocket Insights is an app design & development agency committed to making our clients look good. Founded by senior talent from Brightcove, HubSpot and Localytics, we’ve spent our careers building software that is used by millions of people worldwide. We have Android, Apple Watch, tvOS, iOS and Web experience, with strong domain expertise in the Media, Health and Consumer verticals. We have an intimate understanding of how to grow teams, deliver on our promises and are absolutely committed to maintaining a healthy work life balance. We’re not trying to build the world’s biggest agency. We’re building a team of sharp & humble senior talent that love to create epic apps. Rocket Insights offers competitive health benefits, flexible work schedule, and is an equal opportunity employer.

About Us:

Rocket Insights is a small but growing, tight-knit group of experienced engineers and designers that love building products with like-minded folks. Some of the things that we believe in:

  • Great UI/UX is critical; aesthetics, animations, copy and speed are all part of this
  • Code quality is a top priority; style guides, code reviews, best practices
  • Collaboration; great communication is the key to any project
  • Constantly curious; we're constantly learning/evolving through guild meetings, lunch & learns, conferences and practice
  • A healthy work/life balance; getting home in time for dinner is important

We focus on building great products with clients that we enjoy and respect. Our work has improved people's lives, been seen by millions of users, featured in the app stores, had books written about it, featured in the press, received awards and, most importantly, brought delight to users.

We are growing fast and looking for individuals that are passionate about the development process and not timid about working directly with clients. Our philosophy is to hire smart, client-facing engineers that can both understand the client's business goals and write elegant code.
