Working with Cascadia
At Cascadia Partners, we believe complex problems demand collaboration, intellectual curiosity, and a highly creative, confident team.
Complex problems demand collaboration.
Our incentive structure encourages collaboration across teams and among team members, ensuring no one is encouraged to stay in their silo.
You can’t collaborate from a high horse.
We don’t assume we have all the answers. Our team asks lots of questions and respects the input and insights from team members, our clients, our partners, and our clients’ stakeholders.
The buck stops with us.
We do what needs to get done and step in to support each other and our clients—we don’t have room for blame or time for inaction.
Ideation requires information.
We hire people that are genuinely curious and ask good questions. Rather than jump to conclusions, we dig deep to understand the context, details, and nuances of each problem.
Pandering is not problem-solving.
We are honest with our clients about challenges, project risks, and outcomes of our analysis. We don’t lie to our clients to tell them what they want to hear.
Clarity comes from digging into the details.
We are not afraid to ask increasingly detailed questions, test theories, and hunt down data if it contributes to our understanding of the issues at hand.
Learning is a two-way street.
Sharing information and debating ideas is critical to furthering our understanding. We share books, debate ideas, and encourage everyone to contribute to building up our collective skills and knowledge.
Creativity & Confidence
Environments create the conditions for creativity.
We believe actions are influenced by the environment. To foster a creative, confident team, we strive to build a workplace that is respectful, fun, safe, and infused with humour.
Creativity doesn’t develop in a vacuum.
Most of our best ideas and insightful breakthroughs are not the result of solitary thinking. We strive to solicit diverse viewpoints from our teammates and test concepts with both experts and individuals with no prior knowledge.
Diversity is the seed of creativity.
Diverse backgrounds, experiences, and viewpoints make our work stronger. We strive to build a diverse team—in background, expertise, and experiences.
Confidence comes from action.
People build confidence by trying and succeeding at new activities. We give our teammates opportunities to grow and build confidence in new skills, and we generate opportunities for merit-based advancement as they succeed.
Interested in Joining Our Team?
We are always searching for great people.
Successful candidates like to solve business problems and are proficient with the tools needed to do so (data analysis, market research, client interviews, process mapping, etc.). They know that communicating their findings is as important as generating them, so they are articulate and comfortable communicating in a variety of formats. They thrive in conditions of ambiguity, are adaptable, and have strong time management skills.
Most importantly, they enjoy working in a collaborative environment and care about having a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work.
