Mission: At Kin + Carta, we’re not here to talk about changing the world. We're here to make it work better.
Our name may be different but the legacy lives on. See how our roots are embedded within our next chapter as Kin + Carta — a global ecosystem on a mission to make the world work better. https://www.builtinchicago.org/spotlight/2020/03/10/kin-carta-consulting-chicago-careers?utm_source=member_outreach
If you don’t ask for what you want, people are likely to assume you’re content where you are. We loved Allison Glaubke’s advice in this Built In spotlight!
Our people always come first. That’s why we’ve created a culture that’s deeply connected, always courageous, and instinctively compassionate.
What makes us different comes down to a simple belief: highly specialized talent can be connected without being diluted. We’re organized around three services: a tech-centric management consultancy (Advise), a next-gen software engineering studio (Create), and a digital marketing agency (Connect).
Headquartered out of Chicago and London, we’re a global ecosystem of 1,600 technologists, strategists, and creatives across four continents. We’re big enough to deliver against the biggest challenges yet small enough to care personally.
Our Advise pillar combines technology, data intelligence and deep industry expertise to create strategic plans that thrive far beyond the boardroom. No consultant echo chambers. No fumbled handoffs or misinterpreting strategic intent. We deliver one diverse team, focused on a precise path to execution, designed to create tangible value faster.
We believe growth is built, not theorized. Kin + Carta Create’s pillar is full of makers, builders and creators by nature. They come to work every day to build experiences end-users will love and technologies that business will thrive on.
The approach is simple: Accelerate idea-to-value by striking the ideal balance of human-centered design, Agile engineering, and the realities of affecting change at scale. Including new product development, service design and cloud modernization.
Lifelong customers are built one experience at a time. That’s why Kin + Carta Connect starts with customer data to craft and build connected brand experiences across world-leading digital platforms. Our engagement model evolves from build to support and optimisation to ensure long-term value for both customers and business.
It's important to us that every member of our Kin is able to show up as their full self everyday. Our values, connections, and awesome company benefits help to make that happen.
At Kin + Carta we offer a mentorship program, diversity, philanthropy, and wellness committees, an internal training program, consistent feedback cycles, and internal promotion opportunities.
Demonstrating is better than debating and that's what we're here to do. We're here to make it happen, together.

Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing!
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kin + Carta Americas (Chicago, IL) in November 2019.
Over the phone two rounds, portfolio review, then in person. Had to talk through design process and results in my portfolio. Gave presentation on a product I had to critique.
