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.
