What are they about?

Custom design and clean code

BizStream excels in solving complex problems with custom design and clean code. Their solution architects, designers, and developers have over two decades of experience solving their client’s unique needs across many industries.

Leveraging cutting-edge technology, they provide user-friendly solutions that ensure an enjoyable experience for their clients and their clients’ users. BizStream is there throughout the entire process. Their proven process guides clients through the conceptualization, design, construction, and evolution stages of their websites.

A blend of friendliness, fun, and professionalism

BizStream has crafted an environment where their team thrives in comfort, fosters creativity, and promotes collaboration. The office is a distinctive blend of friendliness, fun, and professionalism. With glass-walled high-tech conference rooms, LEGO brick workstations, and unconventional modes of transportation like a slide and firepole.

Prioritizing the health and well-being of the team is integral to the company culture. Regular foosball breaks and daily walks break up the workday, ensuring a balance between productivity and relaxation. BizStream provides gym/health and wellness memberships and boasts an on-site climbing wall to support physical fitness.

Beyond the office walls, the team embraces a dynamic approach to work-life balance. Regular breaks from the typical office routine include backpacking along Lake Michigan, soaking up the Michigan sun during a round of golf, and celebrating March Madness with upscale bowling, food, and beverages.

One of the best companies to work for

Unsurprisingly, they’ve been repeatedly named one of the best companies to work for in the United States by Best and Brightest®, Inc. Magazine, Color Magazine, and more!

Just as their team does with each other, they take pride in building strong connections with their clients and make collaboration effective and fun. 

This dedication to building solid relationships both internally and externally creates a unique and vibrant atmosphere that sets BizStream apart as a workplace that values not only professional excellence but also the joy of shared accomplishments.
