Life at Six Degrees



At Six Degrees, we know that a high-performing team doesn’t need to operate in a boring, lifeless corporate environment. That’s why the Six Degrees founding directors set out to create something different: a close-knit culture affectionally referred to as the “Six Degrees family”.  

We’ve created a fun yet professional environment where people can grow and thrive. This means that we celebrate diversity and individual brilliance, and we know our best work is driven by our collaborative, team-based culture where we support each other to achieve at our best. Read more about the Six Degrees story.
