You won’t find any cubicles here. In fact, we don’t have many walls in general. That’s because here at Small Army FINN Partners, we think of ourselves as one big team — office dogs included.
Whether you’re working furiously in a room by yourself, collaborating in a group, or attending one of our many offsite enrichment opportunities, Small Army | FINN Partners wants you to leave work every day feeling inspired and empowered. Our work-life balance is off-the-charts incredible, and we have a PowerPoint somewhere to prove it. But you should really just come and see for yourself. (That way you can pet the dogs, too.)
