Our Company Culture:

At Torchlight, we put emphasis on collaboration and shared goals. We believe that a diversity of opinion is important, and give all our team members the opportunity to share thoughts and ideas during the creative and implementation process.

We have a “flat” management structure meaning that while everyone has a job role, we expect that everyone at all levels of the company is capable of working with autonomy and making decisions when necessary. Anyone on our team could be expected to take ownership of a project when it is appropriate.

We value diversity and make every effort to provide a working experience where all people feel they are mutually respected and valued. Our team is multinational and, collectively, we speak 10 different languages at last count. We believe that a richness of backgrounds leads to a wealth of creativity and ideas.

Our approach to solving problems is data-driven. We believe that, rather than molding data to fit desired outcomes, it is better to let the numbers speak for themselves. We have strong QA and QC practices across all our projects and focus on finding hard data on performance and behavior, rather than relying on industry standards or gut instinct.
