’s Gravity Works Design & Development has been growing at a rate that defies, well, gravity. The website and mobile application firm added three new team members this month, and has grown from three to 11 employees in the span of two years.
“We're really focused on making the client happy,” says Lauren Colton of Gravity Works
. “Our culture is all about learning to build better web and mobile products, but the whole Gravity Worksteam is passionate about personalizing solutions to individual client needs and their target audience. That has led to a lot of returning clients, and a lot of referrals from past clients.”
Some of the clients keeping Gravity Works so busy include the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association, the Lansing Housing Commission, Mr. Handyman and the National Association of Career Women. The growing staff has resulted in the firm expanding into a second office space next to their original location, which was previously used for the Gravity Works’ Second Gear Coworking facility. The newest positions added to the company include senior creative designer, operations manager and mobile applications developer.
Even with a substantially larger team, Colton says Gravity Works future plans include sticking to the firm’s tradition of community outreach.
“Our whole team is really involved in the community, and we plan to help Mid-Michigan nonprofit organizations at Lansing GiveCamp, August 18,” says Colton. “Our next programming contest is also in the works, where Gravity Works invites community members to work in teams solving a puzzle, and the best solution wins a prize.”
