Who We Are

The Many Faces of BuzzShift

Though we’ve been around for over five years now and rank as one of the “oldest” digital strategy agencies, we still sometimes think of ourselves as a startup.


It’s part of our culture. We’re picky when picking new team members, choosing to work with people who think like entrepreneurs and can get %$!# done. We’re intelligent, curious, flexible, funny, and hard-working (as we need to be). As a result, we’re always able to stay on top of technology and trends, and can handle any project from designing a website to planning a concert.
