An eclectic crew of soccer superfans, painters and poets, chefs and plant lovers come together as Hyperakt. We celebrate our diverse points of view and show up as our full selves every day. The unique experiences we bring from outside the studio—where we come from, the causes we believe in, and the hobbies we hone—make our work stronger.
Looking for your next adventure?
We are a small team and we’re only actively hiring for positions when they’re listed below. But you can sign up for our newsletter (select "Hype Jobs") to get a heads up about full-time and freelance opportunities as they arise. If you'd like to reach out and tell us about yourself and your work anyway, you can do so here. Please understand that we can’t respond to all the job inquiries we receive.
Life on Zoom
The last few years have been a tough time for everyone due to Covid-19, but we've managed to adapt to life on Zoom. We've brought some of the same traditions we cherish in the studio to our current virtual world. We make time for impromptu drawing sessions, lead cooking lessons for favorite recipes, and make each other laugh.
Hyperakt HQ is a sun-filled industrial loft in Brooklyn’s Gowanus neighborhood. With an ever-growing plant collection, lots of comfortable seating, and a full kitchen, our studio is equal parts creative innovation lab and cozy home-away-from-home.
We’ve been rooted in and around the Gowanus community for two decades. Our quirky, ever-evolving neighborhood is filled with fellow creative outposts like Powerhouse Arts and Artist & Craftsman, hard-working neighbors in the lumber and auto repair industries, local watering holes like Halyards, Dirty Precious, Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club and Parklife and sweet treats from Ample Hills Creamery and Four & Twenty Blackbirds.

Here’s how we support you beyond a paycheck.
In order to hustle hard and take our work seriously, we value rest, rejuvenation, and life outside of the office. Our standard workweek is forty hours.
We have an unlimited vacation policy, and trust you to take the time you need to recharge—whether that’s traveling the world or bingeing the latest Netflix series.
We cover most of your premium for Aetna insurance including your choice of plans across health, dental, and vision. You'll also get a membership to One Medical!
