An Insider's view of FOURKITES

What are some social events your company does?

I'm part of our Hype Squad that helps plan company events, including happy hours, summer and winter parties, co-ed sports teams, DNI groups, and volunteering in the community to name a few. Anyone can join, and it's fun being a part of strengthening a positive and engaging culture.

What projects are you most excited about?

We are working on a project to add functionality to our platform that will increase our customer’s visibility and add flexibility to our integrations. This has required collaboration between multiple departments to ensure that the scoping of the multiple product enhancement tickets are detailed and address the problems of all stakeholders.

How does the company support your career growth?

Our office is really a tight-knit community; people hang out outside of work, everyone gets along and it's a pleasant, open and collaborative culture. I really enjoy working for FourKites because of the great work-life balance, the fact there is a lot of growth opportunities, and I feel like I am working towards both my personal and company goals.

What are some social events your company does?

A fun way we like to provide and share recognition is through our quarterly Cheers to Peers, Nice Cream Socials that Kaitlin, our Front Desk and Office Coordinator puts together. It's a great opportunity to provide recognition to others, mingle with different teams, and eat ice cream - what could be better!

  • Leaving my previous job after nearly 9 years was a really difficult decision but the transition was easy largely due to the incredibly supportive team members here at FourKites. I am grateful everyday to be able to work with such professionals.
    Johnny
    Senior Ocean Carrier Manager
  • Working at FourKites removes the dread of "going into the office" because I know that every day I'm joining coworkers that are dedicated to working together to provide agile results; and doing so with an open mind to process improvement to best fit.

  • FourKites is willing to take a chance on people and promote from within. I’ve seen people move up very quickly and even create their own roles within the org. It's willing to invest in its people through a variety of ways.
    Gil
    Customer Success Manager
  • My time at FourKites has been a breath of fresh air, mixed with the scent of free food. The company has avoided falling into the toxic culture trappings start-ups are known for by hiring mission driven, exceedingly generous, and bright team members.
