Life at Instrument

Our Values

People First
We are committed to creating a workplace that reflects the communities we serve. We cultivate an environment of belonging where differences are not only respected, but valued.

Pursuit of Excellence
We’re not here to make work that is just average. We partner with incredible clients who allow us to do our best work, and they expect nothing less.

Growth Mindset
Each year, we grow in size, in capabilities and in cultural intelligence. This growth fuels the impact we can have for employees, our community, and clients.

Truth in Action
We apply our capabilities and resources towards a shared purpose of shaping a better future.
