Quilted is a five-person worker-owned and cooperatively managed web design, web development, and print design company. We promote workplace democracy and little-d democratic ideals through designing and developing websites, print publications, and graphic identities for like-minded social-change organizations. We strive to contextualize our work within larger movements for social justice and to work collaboratively with our clients and colleagues.
Most of our projects these days are websites built with the Drupal content management framework, but we also work with other content management systems and custom PHP and Rails-based web applications. Our core competencies are design, Drupal theme development, HTML/CSS, and strategic web consulting. Our work has been growing steadily over the past three years, and we’re looking for a new potential worker-owner to join our team. We’re committed to slow, strategic growth with the interests of members in mind.
Three of us work in an office in Berkeley, California, one from an office in Boston, Massachusetts, and one from New Haven, Connecticut. We value working in person as much as possible. We’re not a “virtual” firm; the eventual plan is for all members to work at the same location (probably the SF Bay area). We’re enthusiastic about the worker-cooperative model for business, and we embody it as much as possible. All members have the same pay rate, share equitably in any profit at the end of the year, and receive identical raises as we grow. We operate entirely on the basis of consensus, with all members having equal input into decisions, and all expected to contribute actively and creatively to building the company. We all get along really well and we take the time to care for one another.
