An Insider's view of Threat Stack

How does your team reward individual success?

Anyone in the company can nominate anyone else for a "#OneStack Award," which recognizes a fellow employee going above and beyond their job duties. Our CEO personally gives these out at our monthly Town Hall meetings. Additionally, when a major project milestone is reached, the team responsible gets a 1/2 day out of the office for a team activity.

Technical Writer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Collaboration is one of our core values and everyone is extremely supportive to each other. We use an internal chat client. So my first step would be to post a question to a group chat and crowdsource and answer. I can @ individuals who I think would have unique insight or feedback, or since we're all in Boston, go discuss with them in-person.

Eric

Senior Technical Support Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Since joining in early 2016, Threat Stack has not only helped me grow as a professional but also with finding a career path. Starting as a BDR, I was encouraged to pursue my interest in sales operations and was able to seamlessly move into a new area of the business. This was heavily supported by leadership through education and clear objectives.

Colin

Business Operations Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

Career growth is facilitated through constant communication. Team members are challenged to expand their skills via technical and non-technical endeavors. We've had Engineers transition into management, become Architects, become technical leads, and grow rapidly as Software Engineers which is a testament to our commitment to the team.
