You don’t have to be at gyro long to realize you’re part of something very different. You can see it in practical ways: the CEO doesn’t have an office, there’s no HQ on our map and very little hierarchy. But mostly it’s something you can feel. There’s a different spirit to the way we work at gyro. Our offices around the world aren’t in competition with each other; they’re there for each other. We talk to each other, we work together and we share all the challenges and triumphs a creative life brings. We call this culture UNO.
