Working at Foundry

Do you love helping people make their product dreams come true? Do you care about timelines, going to production, wrangling brilliant people? Are you sick of the BS that keeps you from doing that? This might just be the job for you!

Come help us make cool stuff as Producer at Foundry. It’s not an easy job, but it’s a rewarding one. It's juggling 8-12 projects. It's influencing the team, the process, and the clients. Most of all it's helping a team of brilliant people do amazing things.

Foundry creates digital products with sincere empathy for the people who’ll use them. We look for ever-curious lifelong learners to add their talents to our team. Our clients bring us real-world problems to solve, not lists of requirements to implement. We dig into their goals and culture, asking lots of questions until we know we’re proposing just the right solution. Then we make it happen, pretty fast. We help our clients make beautiful, impactful, elegant, well-conceived custom software.

Our company culture revolves around creative problem solving, collaborative thinking, and hard work mixed with an appropriate dose of irreverence. We take our work seriously but insist on having some serious fun while doing it. Silliness often occurs, yet stuff still gets done, well.

We define and design all that we make, always taking those steps in that deliberate order. Everything Foundry produces is crafted with attention-to-detail by people who genuinely care about creating positive outcomes and real impact. We’re dedicated to partnering with companies in the business of doing good. We earn our clients’ trust to turn their vision into something amazing.

Expectations for you

As a small, agile company, we expect producers to jump in and take an assertive role, both with leading clients and in support of the team. You’ll help build some really cool stuff, including your mastery of skills, your career – yourself.

A note on remote work

Generally speaking, we find our collaborative creativity is multiplied exponentially by being in the room together, feeding off each others’ energy, and building on each others’ ideas.  We try to work together in the same office when possible, and normally on a typical day we ask our colleagues to join us at our Downtown Minneapolis offices, but right now isn’t a very normal time. We believe when life happens – take care of it, family first, which is why, with regard to COVID-19, this position will temporarily be remote as the health and security of our staff is paramount.


Enough about us, let's talk about you
