What is our purpose?

Etch exists to help our people, clients and partners to go further, faster. Accelerating the progression of everyone and fulfilling undiscovered potential is our reason for being. It's what gets us up out of bed in the morning, and it's what keeps us going day in, day out. We do this through a combination of radical management principles and a constant drive to challenge unnecessary constraints. Read on for an insight into how Team Etch is striving to define a better way to work, live, and play.

We're defining a better way to...

Work

We challenge the conventions of what it means to work through a radical new operating system and methods. This includes different ways of working and does not distinguish between employed and self-employed.

Live

There is no work-life balance when purpose is pursued, just one life. And we believe this should be your best life. Our initiatives don't just focus on work-related development; we are committed to helping you thrive in and out of work.

Play

We strengthen and grow relationships with our people and partners through our experiences together. Having fun together is at the core of relationships. Now, more than ever, these rituals have become essential to our culture.

What we believe in

Loving what you do

We believe that everyone has something unique to offer the world. That’s why we build roles around people, for those who go above and beyond because they truly love the work that they do.

Nurturing talent

Employeneurship

We believe you should be in control of your own destiny. We’re constantly challenging the boundaries between having a job and being your own boss, creating an environment for you to thrive.

Being human

We believe humanity holds the key to personal growth. We seek out what it means to be human, and in the process are fostering a culture that accelerates progression and fulfils undiscovered potential.

The Wildman Fund

Take a walk on the wild side

It's time for us to make a difference - a difference for ourselves and others. The Wildman Fund is a charitable initiative from Etch, where we select three charities to work with each year, offering time or money to help effect change. We believe in creating a big difference while we can, and we believe in using the time we have to support and change people's lives for the better.
