An Insider's view of FOURKITES

How does your team reward individual success?

At FourKites, we LOVE tacos! We love them so much we use a recognition taco bot in slack to reward and recognize great work across all 3 offices. At the end of the month, the taco winner gets a gift card to get tacos somewhere in Chicago!

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!
