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!
