Join our team, love your work. We do things differently.
We do things differently at Metal Toad. We emphasize mastery of our craft in the service of our clients. Many of us are veterans of the professional services industry, and from our experiences we are using Craft, Humility, and Purpose to combat the status quo of Better, Faster, Cheaper.
We Are Toads
We are craftspeople.
We believe our work is worthy of mastery.
We are humble.
We ask to be proud of our work and nothing more.
We are purposeful.
We live our values and believe in the virtues of our efforts.
We believe that programming, design, and project management are worthy of high standards. They have tools that must be mastered, lessons that must be handed down by mentors, and signatures of quality that are impossible to fake. We've come together as a company to provide a space for our crafts to thrive.

Our Apprenticeship Program is the manifestation of our belief in craft mastery. Apprentices are mentored by senior staff and given the benefits of a full time professional. Every few months, the apprentice is re-assigned to a new area of study. Our goal is to combine natural talent, practical training, and broad experience to create a new generation of masters of digital craft. Apprentice positions are currently applied to Front-End Engineering, Back-End Engineering, Dev-Ops, Project Management, Client Strategy, and Relationship Management.
— Bryant Mcgill
Along with training, we protect the craft mastery with Bills of Rights to protect against business expediencies, self-governance within each field, and rigorous peer review of all work.
We simply want to be proud of our work, and leave our egos at the door. There is nothing like seeing our best efforts improve the lives of our clients. Clients hire us because they know they are working with very personal passions that result in high quality work. We do not let clients down, because we do not let ourselves down.
— Malcom S. Forbes
We value original thinking from people of diverse world views. The insights of a second-year project manager are treasured just as much as those of a thirty-year account executive. We are proud to be an Equal Opportunity employer, as well as a participant in the E-Verify program.
— Benjamin Franklin
