About Whitespace

Who we are

Whitespace was founded in 2014 by a pair of Silicon Valley veterans who recognized the unmet need for UX in the enterprise.

We work with Global 2000 brands, high-growth startups, and international organizations to build world-class customer and employee experiences. Our mission is to help you achieve a higher Return on Human™.

We've got experience & talent

We recruit experts whose proven analytical, design, technical, and soft skills enable them to bring value to large and complex client organizations across a wide array of industries. Our teams speak multiple languages and our company culture is international.

We're friendly & easy to work with

At least that's what people say, and we don't take it for granted. Our values include empathy, trust, respect, and quality – they help us nurture long-term relationships with our clients and partners, and they ensure that work stays fun and human.

We're women-owned & managed

Women are well represented throughout our staff, management team, and board of directors. Whitespace does not discriminate based on age, ethnicity, gender, or orientation.

We are Whitespace

Our values

We are living in a highly connected and increasingly complex world, where the impact of new technologies and business models will have profound effects on our societies, politics, ecosystems, and collective well-being.

We can either let these forces control us, or we can put humans at the center of this change, ensuring a sustainable world for generations that follow.

Whitespace takes its cue from the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We believe the human value chain begins with empathy and leads to prosperity. If we put science, technology, and collective knowledge to use for the people of this planet, then society and the environment will reap the benefits.
