Culture and Careers
Since its beginning, Planet Argon has been a collaborative space for nonconformists and eccentrics to combine forces and make a positive impact on our industry. Our focus is to help organizations with existing software make them better and more maintainable.
We're not into fake smiles and schmoozing.
Projects we support
We don't accept projects that we don't believe in.
No midnight oil
We don't work insane hours to meet deadlines.
We don’t attend networking events just to pass our business cards out to a bunch of random people.
Making a difference
We care more about making a difference than how much we’ll earn in our lifetime.
Time to recharge
We ensure that our employees get plenty of time away from our laptops each year.

Diversity at Planet Argon
Blacks and Hispanics represent 30.2% of the US population
Blacks and Hispanics represent 9.2% of the tech industry
Women represent 51% of the US population
Women represent 30% of the tech industry
Unfortunately, there continues to be an underrepresentation of women and people of color in the tech industry. At Planet Argon, we have had a nearly equal balance of men and women on our team for several years. However, there are still imbalances we must improve upon as we strive for a more diverse team.
In 2015, we signed the diversity pledge published by Prosper Portland and several local tech organizations. As part of the pledge, we’ve committed to participating in efforts to create and implement strategies to increase the hiring of women and people of color. We’re looking forward to both sharing what’s worked and learning from our peers.
