The Culture

This is the good stuff. At LionsMouth, we build everything on trust. Creating a website is a close-knit and personal process and you have to trust that whomever you’re working with prioritizes your business needs and preferences above their own. We will stand by you like any great partner should because you are our number one priority.

Start with the Best People

Being an agile team of experts, we trust and rely on each other to produce amazing work. It is our collective expertise that allows us to create something greater than anything we could do on our own. Not everyone is a great fit here, and that’s ok. To work at LionsMouth, it takes an unwavering resolve, a passionate ability to create, and the humility to continue to grow.

Make sure they “get it”

It’s hard to explain, but people who get ‘just get it’ are the ones who produce amazing results. As a client of LionsMouth, know that your brand and digital strategy is in the hands of creatives who intuitively understand their niche. What does that really mean to us? We’ve listed a few of the qualities we look for in our people:

Servant Leadership

Treat other’s needs as more important than your own

Partnership Mentality

Build Long term relationships

Go for Greatness

Good is the enemy of great

Enjoy what you do

If you don’t enjoy it, than why do you keep doing it?

Let them Live + Thrive

We want only the best team members, so it’s hard to say that they have to live in the same city. We value people want them to work where they are most inspired. Living is more than surviving. We want our people to thrive. Our flexibility breaks paradigms and injects our work with diverse perspectives. Also, we just really like globetrotting to have team meetings.
