Simplicity is built on relationships

Simplicity has a dynamic, supportive, and upbeat company culture where all teams are accessible and engaged, as well as challenged and inspired to develop and grow.

Female-founded, Female-forward  

Women make up 75% of our HQ staff and consultant community, and we endeavor to foster an inclusive, supportive environment to help everyone find their personal definition of success.

At Simplicity, our approach to diversity and inclusion is rooted in helping everyone thrive in this new world of work one conversation at a time. We strive to build a culture of connection and belonging where everyone is empowered to make an impact. We are committed to developing a diverse workforce of exceptional talent to catalyze heroic success - for our clients, our consultants, and our community.

We’re certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise with the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), and we support women in business through partnerships with the University of Washington Bothell Women’s Leadership Camp and Cal Poly. We support other women- and minority-run businesses in our community, and participate in local events such as the Seattle WiT Regatta, Women in Cloud Summit, and IAMCPT WiT.

We believe in trust and accountability, the importance of community, and the transformational power of a diverse and inclusive workplace.

Our guiding principles inspire us to bring our best selves to work, each and every day:

  • Self starter: We’re proactive, action-oriented, and self-directed servant leaders

  • Meaningful relationships: We strive to add value to every conversation and use active listening to build trust and integrity

  • Innovative: Creative problem-solvers at heart, we collaborate to find new solutions and fresh perspectives

  • Learning: We’re curious lifelong learners who are continuously seeking knowledge and honing our skills

  • Energy: A positive attitude is contagious: We believe in infusing a little fun into the workplace

"Simplicity works with great clients, they offer ample resources to keep you happy and motivated, woman-founded, and plenty of incentives for hard work."
