You may be a fit at Maark if you...are a problem solver at heart.

On all teams at Maark (creative, engineering, and management) problem solving plays a large role in our day-to-day work. Our work is always more than how something looks or how something was built but more closely aligns with how we solved a client or user's problem. These problems are often complex and related to new businesses or industries that most designers and engineers have not had experience with. Team members at Maark go above and beyond to learn about these problems and propose new and better solutions to our clients and their users.

are extremely organized and independent.

Maark is a small team of creators that work closely with clients to help them realize their vision. This calls for everyone at Maark to manage their time and be responsible for their work. The businesses we are working with and the problems we are solving can be very complex—independent management values help make that complexity approachable.
