Our Way

It's all about JOY

At Menlo, we do more than design and build great software. Our processes, our culture, our work ethic—they all aim toward a single goal: joy.

At Menlo, we do more than design and build great software. Not that great software is a small thing. It’s rare. But we aim for something higher. Our processes, our culture, our work ethic—they all aim toward a single goal: joy.

Introduction

So what does JOY look like at Menlo?

Joy is what happens when people use our software with ease, even excitement. It’s what happens when we exceed our project sponsors’ expectations.

Joy is what happens when people use our software with ease, even excitement. It’s what happens when we exceed our project sponsors’ expectations. It’s what happens when our teamwork brings out the best in each other and in what we create.  

Joy is the thing that underpins everything we do and everything we’re about. And it’s contagious. But joy doesn’t just happen. Over the years, we’ve learned a lot about what does and doesn’t work, primarily through what we call “running the experiment.” We’d like to tell you about where this ongoing experiment has brought us to today and why we do some of the seemingly crazy things we do. Ultimately, we’d love to take what we’ve learned and use it to walk together with you as you explore your own path toward joy.
