Work That Works For You

We understand that our lives are not all about work. Really? Really. We trust each other to work hard, and understand that there is more to life than being in the office. That’s why we provide flexible work days and schedules to allow each other to do our work when we can do it best. We ensure there is enough time for the collaboration and focus to get down to business, but also the flexibility to ensure that we can take care of ourselves and our families.

We Engineer Fun

A twist on the old adage—We work hard at playing hard.

Work and life get busy. Sometimes it’s tough to kick back and lighten up a bit. At Murraysmith, we understand the importance of taking time to reap the rewards of our hard work and enjoy time together. That’s why we invest in an Employee Activities Team that works hard to make sure we have employee and family events that allow us to have fun together and *gasp* talk about things other than work!

Seeing Projects Come to Life

 “I enjoy seeing my work have a real impact on our daily lives. The other day I was out for a walk with my brother and his new baby. When you’re trying to push a stroller down the street, you appreciate the work that goes into designing an accessible curb ramp.”

– Will Dickman
