Creative Optimism

For us, building better products is dreaming bigger futures. We create not just products but capacity, empowering our clients with novel and thoughtful solutions. In an industry founded on dynamic change we know curiosity is our utility belt, and are constantly considering technology’s potential, changing real-world contexts, and what out-of-the-box thinking means today — or tomorrow.


We value each other not just as co-workers or clients but people, whose varied interests, diverse lives, and myriad relationships make us unique. The ways we work together support all the lives HFCers live outside the office: we take proactive work/life balance measures, respect each other’s time, and maintain a culture of consideration first.

Since our inception, we’ve actively recruited colleagues with different backgrounds, lives, and experiences worldwide for both entry and leadership roles. We understand equity needs a long-term, persistent approach and treat it as a constantly-renewing process, but engage the real needs of team members today.

Half the joy of learning what’s past the next hill is how you get there. We help countless companies launch, grow, or realize their potential every year, and stay active partners as they develop. Technical agility, multidisciplinary experience, and a work ethic that cares about results help us cross-apply what we’ve learned to meet new challenges with more creative solutions.


Trust is HappyFunCorp’s deepest belief: that the best way to build businesses efficiently and with excellence is to trust each other’s expertise — and be worthy of each other’s trust. We take ownership of our work and create generous room to float that next idea. Our greatest joy is working collaboratively with such a symphony of talent — and helping each other develop into the best musicians we can be.
