Who is RUSH? 

We are an integrated design + technology studio. 

We're a squad of strategic thinkers, empathetic designers and technical mavericks.

We’re united by our love of technology and its potential for making lives better. Some of us are big picture thinkers, some of us creatively driven. And some of us love nothing more than deep diving into a thorny technical challenge. But we’re all human, inspired by human stories and driven by a desire to create human-centred experiences.

We're chasing down  the future. We design and engineer exciting new ways to engage with the world's challenges, big or small. Sometimes they're business challenges, sometimes they're about being better humans. But we get the same rush from taking them on.

Love making things for people to enjoy? Join the team designing the technology that matters.


What matters to us?

Put people first - It's about the people, not the tech.

Push the boundaries - Who wants to do what's been done already?

Play the long game - We create sustainable solutions, not quick fixes.

Say it like it is - Life's too short for miscommunication.

Live for the RUSH - Nothing's more exciting than the rush of doing and discovering.
