want to do the best work of your life?
We are a rapidly growing mobile strategy, design, and development company at the forefront of the app revolution. Our work is used by tens of millions of delighted users every day to connect with the information, brands and entertainment they love. Sound like a career you’d be interested in?
Do you have the right stuff?
We will never stop pushing the limits of design, architecture and the capabilities of the platforms we embrace. Our future promises continued growth of both our capacity and capabilities in all areas of our business. And that’s where you come in. If you choose to get to know Bottle Rocket better, you’ll learn that we are a values-driven business where things like “embrace the impossible,” “take your craft personally” and “serve the user” really mean something. Everyday, you’ll see passionate Rocketeers debating design issues at whiteboards on nearly every wall, focusing on tough problems in complex code, leading client meetings with the world’s top brands, conducting user testing to find areas to improve our work and creating project plans to release the next award-winning app. If you interview with Bottle Rocket, you’ll meet passionate people who ask tough questions and, while they won’t expect you to know every answer, they will expect you know how to figure it out by thinking on your feet and using your resources wisely. There’s going to be a lot of interviews, probably some testing and scenario-based questioning as well. It’s not easy to get a job at Bottle Rocket, so please don’t apply if you’re not seriously passionate about building the best possible experiences on mobile.
Bottle Rocket is the type of place where you can do the best work of your life, but what happens at Bottle Rocket will be up to you. We don’t wait around for someone to tell us what to do, and we don’t point fingers when things don’t work out like we hoped. We are each accountable for our own success as well as Bottle Rocket’s success.
We work hard to maintain an atmosphere full of life.
It’s our ongoing mission is to hire and retain the best team on earth. In order to do this, we have a committee created and run by Rocketeers called LIFT. The LIFT committee shapes and maintains the ideal culture, work environment, and employee programs to support the overall company’s mission as we continue to grow. We work hard and we play hard, and LIFT handles everything from community outreach and development programs to planning social events and traditions like Fancy Fridays and Yoga days. LIFT meetings are held each month and are open to everyone in the company, so we encourage you get involved and help make Bottle Rocket an even better place to work.

Bottle Rocket consistently does what other companies can’t. We know and love the iPhone, iPad, and Android unlike anyone else, and now we’re building experiences for streaming devices, wearables, VR headsets and more. We’re those people who stood in line for the newest model. We value aesthetics, UI and UX; we sweat the details, and we build awesome applications that serve the user and not only exceed standards, but set new ones.
As of November 2013, Bottle Rocket is now part of WPP, the world’s largest advertising and marketing services company made up of 150 different companies around the world with more than 165,000 employees over 3,000 offices in 110 countries including giants of industry like Ogilvy & Mather, Young & Rubicam, JWT, Grey, Wunderman, Geometry and AKQA. The partnership is amazing and provides more fuel for us to expand our impact not only on the industry but also across the globe.
Above all, Rocketeers are team players. We are mature, self-driven professionals who bring our passion to the table and check our egos at the door. We respect each other. We keep our promises to each other and to our clients. We love our craft and do what it takes to get the job done. We work really hard, but we love what we do, and we have a lot of fun doing it. We never give up. We never give in. What we do isn’t easy, and it’s definitely not for everyone, but if all this gets you excited, we’d love to have you here.
