“When you work with smart, interesting people, you want to foster an easy opportunity to learn from them and get their advice. Plus — the whole office smells incredible right around 11:30.”

How the Google Ventures Design Sprint taught me about the value of UX
As a project manager, it’s my job to help clients understand the value of what we’re doing. But when clients would ask about UX design, I didn’t feel like I had a good answer. I know that the value is there, but I could not voice it to my clients as well as I can for development.
I wanted to be able to better inform my clients and better advocate for my coworkers, so I added getting a better understanding of UX design to my professional development goals. Find out what happened.
“I interviewed at a lot of places, and nowhere else had the same homey vibe or showed me the same respect as a brand-new programmer that Table XI did.”
—Pete Brooks on his journey from apprentice to full-time developer
We believe in diversity and inclusivity
At Table XI, our product is our people. To deliver the best solutions, we need as many bright and diverse minds in the room as possible, and we need to be able to learn from them once they’re there. That’s why we’re working to create an environment that’s comfortable and inclusive for everyone.
Our diversity and inclusivity team is dedicated to helping us become more aware and responsive. Through surveys, speakers and conversations, we’re collecting the data we need to iterate on our own culture, so we can make this the workplace we want it to be.
We know the tech industry isn't always as welcoming as it should be. But we're happy to do the work of making it better, both at our company and in our community.
