Working at iF

Much like the name we've given members of our talented team—iFsters—the iF culture is a tad peculiar, in all the best ways.

Whether it's board games, enamel pins, or cryptocurrency, we're just a bit nerdy about something or other. Our interests vary, but what we have in common is our passion and dedication to making the world a better place.

We pride ourselves on our values of teamwork, excellence, and imagination, and practice them not only in our work but in the ways we engage with all our stakeholders.

Intentional Futures is committed to creating a diverse, inclusive, and non-discriminatory environment for its employees and clients. Read about our DEI practices and journey here.
