PetrochemWorks.com just launched and with it a great opportunity for Houstonians to land great paying jobs. Alongside our partner CAEL, we created a web application that included an innovative job matching tool that helps people find exciting roles based on their skills, interests, and education level.
Although we’re a technology company, it’s not the technology that matters most, it’s the human experiences we shape. That’s the important stuff.
We focus on digital tools and applications that improve the lives of the humans that use them. Tools that have helped people advance their careers and education; bettered their efficiency or enjoyment at work.
We’re people people. And technology people. Humanitarians who wield technology to better your business. We engage an agile methodology and approach every project with empathy, humility, and passionate collaboration. Everyone is all in.
“They made what we formerly perceived as a complicated and daunting task easy and enjoyable, and the end result was beyond our imagination.”
“Hey, come to our barbeque on Saturday.” And, “We had a great time with you helping to build that community garden.”
We want to create work that benefits humanity, whether that’s on-screen or off. So whenever possible, we take our talents outside of our traditional work and get our hands dirty helping where we can. Every year we identify a cause, or causes, and commit ourselves to making a difference for them.
We don’t chase trends. We build the best possible experiences for people, using the best technology available at the time.
Designers and stakeholders have the best intentions at heart. But users ultimately determine the success of a product. We involve real users to validate and direct our approaches.
Yes, it’s weird but true, civilization existed before the Internet. Point being, we've seen the pitfalls and successes. We've learned a lot and we’re really good at applying all those lessons to every project we execute.
We love to see the enthusiasm and wide-eyed wonderment that comes when people adopt, and adapt to, new technologies.
Ok, so we’re not claiming to be fortune tellers, but with decades of experience we’ve learned enough to know that when making new products they need to be successful now, and for many years to come. So we always have one eye on what’s ahead.
While we carefully tend to the future, our current toolbox leans heavily towards web-based applications, particularly those that are responsive to all device types. We love what’s going on right now with phones and tablets and the whole internet of things.
Our distributed team isn't limited to who’s available in a particular geographic area. When we need a new contributor, whether permanently or temporarily, we search for, and find, the best of the best.
We build tools that run on screens. From small screens on phones to huge screens on TVs, and everything in between. We believe the web is The Great Equalizer and it has unmatched potential to improve the lives of everyone on the planet.
We can work with the best people, anywhere in the world.
We can work whenever and wherever we can do our best work.
We don’t harm the world (and ourselves) with wasteful commutes.
We have a reliable, agile methodology.
We meet regularly, in-person to excite our collaborative nature.
We use virtual presence tools to conduct conversations, meetings, reviews, and sharing.
Our agile methodology allows us to create phenomenal work with fluctuating teams with remarkable speed. All while allowing us to respond to client requests with immediacy.
Our process is iterative. We look for projects and clients that believe in iteration and the mantra of “release early and often”. We build, we learn, we adjust.
We improve the lives of humans. We care about humans. We act deliberately to help and not hurt humankind. We have empathy and humility.
We build interfaces around the humans that will use them. By focusing on the capabilities and limitations of humans—from the mental to the motor—we can ensure products that delight their human users. The particulars of a given device are just implementation details, albeit intrinsic to its success and therefore never overlooked.
We respect the people we work with: from employees, to contractors, to clients and partners. Work is a subset of these humans’ lives. By doing work that matters in a way that engages, and delivering exciting results, we expect the people we work with to be enthusiastic about working with us. We haven’t been let down yet.
We look for opportunity to improve other lives in our community. Locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally, we strive to be humanitarians in the truest sense of the word and dedicate a portion of our hands, minds and revenues to humanitarian initiatives.
We work with companies and organizations that understand that humans will use their tools and makes those humans the primary drivers of their products.
We adore our clients. To have such affection, we make sure we're on the same page as our partners both on a project and personal level. We welcome clients into our agency, and encourage participation in our outreach efforts.
Here are some examples of our great partnerships in action.
Houston is the global central of the Petrochemical industry and offers great-paying, stable careers to thousands of workers. There is enormous growth ongoing, but many people in the area aren’t aware of the opportunity.
To introduce Houstonians to the Petrochemical industry that lives in their backyard. Expose the opportunity and benefits (and the challenges) and match job seekers with careers that excite them, then connect those future workers to the training and education they need to be ready for the job.
An innovative job matching tool helps people find exciting roles based on their skills, interests, and education level. This tool is blended with descriptive imagery and statistics to tell the story of the industry and the opportunity of its jobs. And each job is mapped to specific career paths and to the institutions and companies that will prepare and employ the new workers.
“The PetroChemWorks.com website is an essential tool that will greatly assist Industry in filling gaps by helping students, parents, unemployed, under-employed and Veterans map their personal interests and talents into a Career in Industry. ”

McDonald’s employs hundreds of thousands of people in the United States. In collaboration with ACE, all of those employees are eligible for college credit recommendations for training they attend through McDonald’s.
While this enormous benefit is available to thousands upon thousands of people, only a few hundred take advantage of it each year. Many are unaware of the program. Those that know of it have an incomplete understanding, find it overwhelming, or aren’t sure how to use it.
Meet McDonald’s employees where they are—on their mobile phones—with a tool that is easy and fun. Break down barriers and alleviate the fear of going back to school. Using a mobile-first, web application to introduce the concept, explore the courses that may be credit-worthy, calculate a “college credit score” and locate schools that will meet the employee’s needs. All in a fun, encouraging tone that makes the process feel easy.
“McDonald’s could not be happier with the responsive web app that Super Humane designed and developed. We know it is going to help better the lives of so many employees, and advance the business that McDonald’s does.”

A Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant was awarded by the U.S. Department of Labor to the Colorado Helps Advanced Manufacturing Program (CHAMP). The CHAMP Project is in place to increase the attainment of degrees and certifications in manufacturing in order to best serve employers’ needs.
To educate Coloradoans about the Advanced Manufacturing industry and help them attain manufacturing degrees and certificates that align with the industry’s recognized competencies, skills and certifications to create a pipeline of highly-qualified advanced manufacturing industry workers.
Provide an exciting and empowering experience that works where they are—on their mobile devices, or their desktop. The visually engaging app helps the workforce explore the booming industry and its job families and robust job descriptions. A powerful set of interactive tools help users visualize a career path, learn about specific roles, understand required education and ultimately seek out a new career in advanced manufacturing.
“This project is a great example of collaboration in action. CAEL and Super Humane collaborated with several organizations to successfully produce a responsive web app that will help workers build their skills and grow the Advanced Manufacturing industry in Colorado.”
