5 Stones offers a career doing fulfilling work in a vibrant Catholic community of passionate professionals. Be a part of our growing, close-knit team in Sycamore, Illinois that is dedicated to putting our gifts and talents at the service of Our Lord by supporting Catholic apostolates with creative, technology, distribution, and support services.

We believe that what you do matters less than how you do it. Yes, we take great pride in supporting our clients as they do incredible work to build the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. It’s such a blessing to be a small part of their mission.

And yet, the true heart of our apostolate is the community of our employees and their families. Our unique culture is built upon our mutual love of Jesus Christ and our shared life which integrates work, family life, friendship, and ministry. For this reason, the fruit of our efforts are not just the results that we drive for our clients, but the Christian community of love and encouragement that surrounds our team.

Our Technology team is one of three teams within the Creative Department (along with Graphic Design and Marketing).

We believe that our best work is done when it flows out of a relationship. Our engineers work to build trust, camaraderie, and communication with our clients-because no one likes yelling up to an ivory tower or sifting through confusing technical jargon. We love Catholic organizations, and our technology team lives that out every day through a balance of expertise and humility.
