An Insider's view of Inspire11

What's something quirky about your company?

I never enjoyed company-wide meetings before coming to Inspire11. Now, the Inspire11 quarterly meetings are some of my favorite times of the year. We have themes, costumes, games, and great reflections on the work we did the past quarter. One time a karaoke machine was involved.

Allie

Engineering Consultant

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Our team is helping a large health insurer tackle the challenges of modern data analytics. So far, we have helped them organize terabytes of data into a data lake where we can now quickly and easily access information to perform a variety of analytics in order to provide actionable solutions for the business’s toughest problems.

Data Consultant

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My career growth at Inspire11 has been great not just from a title but from chances to experience opportunities and apply my own experiences to actively build out offerings, culture, and community that support our “curiosity with purpose” mindset.

Britt

Engineering Principal

What are some social events your company does?

Does hanging out at the office count? I'm kidding...sort of! We love spending time together so even things like walking to lunch can feel like a social event. We do sports leagues, movies in the park, rock climbing, happy hours, game nights…the list goes on. For quarterly meetings, the entire company comes together - it feels like a family reunion!
