About Voltage Creative

We’re a fast-paced online development studio in downtown Kansas City. Our roots are in design and branding and we hold close to those by practicing user-focused design and development with a marketer’s eye. We work on Mac’s, we have a pinball machine and there’s beer in the fridge. We offer health benefits and three-weeks paid vacation; two at our employee’s discretion, the third is when the shop closes between Christmas and New Year’s. We’re a small shop; we wear a lot of hats (i.e. we all answer the phone and we all work closely together) so you can’t be afraid of broadening your horizons, at times you’ll need put in extra hours when deadlines are approaching, and you’ll need to check your ego at the door. All of our employees can operate fairly independently just as well as in a team.
