Our Philosophy

Many moons ago (or in 2006) we were called the Think Tank Ninjas. Why Ninjas? Scores of people have asked this question over the years when they first hear about the Ninjas at Think Tank.

Why Ninjas indeed…

We say we’re the power behind the scenes. Like the stealthy Ninjas our CEO loved watching in movies as a child, Ninjas are always behind the scenes doing the hard work.

So, why Ninjas? Because your competition won’t see you coming, your customers won’t know what hit them, the world will never quite be the same again. Sure, the concept started as a silly joke back in 2006, but it has developed into a company culture, our philosophy, and what makes us unique.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide services that will blow our clients’ socks off. Wait, is that not a “proper” mission statement? That’s okay. Sometimes things don’t need to be proper – they just need to be true. And while we blow our clients’ socks off, we are also committed to giving back to our community, paying it forward, and doing the good things in life that Ninjas aren’t exactly famous for. Who needs a mission statement when you’re a Ninja anyway?
