Culture and Careers

Planet Argon Team

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 simplify the lives of others through digital technology. Plain and simple.

The Culture

Authenticity

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.

Meaningful relationships

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 the studio each year.

Love working, but love other things more

It’s cool that some places have cafeterias for their employees, cots set up so you can sleep, dry cleaning on-site. But we’d rather you check out the local food scene, get rest at home, and actually have time to spend with your friends and family.

What I love about Planet Argon is that the team genuinely cares about you as a person. Everyone understands life outside of work, and the demands and stresses it can bring - and they offer not an additional stress of the dependency of work, but support.

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 are lucky to have found ourselves at an equal ratio of men and women. But there is still an imablance that we identified and need to address.

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.

The Team, Out of the Studio

When you choose the team you want to work with, as a client or as a colleague, don’t you ever wish you could see what they’re like outside the office? What do they do in their spare time? Where do they go? Well, here’s your chance.
