Celerity – Why Work With Us?

To succeed in today’s climate of uncertainty, your business must be responsive to change – and being responsive means you are in transition, every single day.

Responsive businesses will thrive and create sustainable business value for customers because they’re able to see changes and shifts as opportunities – not as threats.

Celerity is a business and technology consulting firm dedicated to helping businesses respond to change—efficiently, quickly, and with focus on the customer. We specialize in digital experience, change management, and operational efficiency, and the integration between them all.

Our core values are the values that guide our success.

Courageous authenticity  |  We are willing to say things that need to be said, even when it's uncomfortable. We encourage people to speak respectfully and directly about challenges and controversial issues. We believe that a high level of authenticity leads to richer conversations resulting in better solutions. 

Empathy  |  We take the time and interest to fully understand others' thoughts and feelings. Taking time to understand our clients' hopes and fears allows us to create better, more implementable solutions. Taking time to listen and understand our teammates' opinions and points of view helps us hold deeper, more well-rounded dialogues with diversity of thought.

Intentional action  |  We spend our time wisely, focused on the actions that will make the most impact. We practice being decisive and acting with integrity, even in the midst of uncertainty. We state our desired outcomes; plan with purpose and intention; and take bold action as a result of our decisions.

Synchronicity  |  We are interconnected and working with a graceful elegance. All parts of the team are working in concert to serve the whole. There is an ease to our work and a flow in our communications that brings job and love to what we do every day. 

Perseverance  |  We welcome challenges, believe in our clients and each other and persevere on their behalf. We are resilient, scrappy, and can figure out just about anything.

    I have been working at Celerity full-time (Less than a year)


    This company is hands down, one of the best companies I've ever worked for.. they truly do invest into their employees and their development.. they routinely bring in outside consultants to help develop their staff and their personal/professional development.. the annual performance management program is excellent and one of the most lucrative out there in the market ... they go out of their way to find things to celebrate .. new employees joining, people's achievement, etc .. free food all the time ... happy hours all the time .. this is one of the best culture's I've ever been apart of .. and I'll echo some of the other comments here... I've never worked with a smarter group of people in my 15 year career .. there is nothing to think about before joining this group


    We do operate as a start up so the growing pains that come along with that but its expected

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Celerity.


    The interview process was quick, casual and straightforward. I was an out-of-state candidate and the entire process was able to be conducted via video conferencing and took a little more than a week. There were 3 rounds plus a phone screen. Each interview was conducted as more of a conversation (no "tell me about a time where..."), just going over my experience and whether or not it was a solid and mutually beneficial fit.

    The steps were as follows:
    1) Phone screen with a recruiter (after each step there was a brief 5-10 minute touch base with the recruiter)
    2) 30 minute interview with a senior member on the team
    3) 1 hour interview with the hiring manager
    4) 1 hour interview with two VPs.

    I cannot stress enough how casual the interviews were and did not feel like they were try to quiz me on my resume.
