An Insider's view of Knotch

How does your team reward individual success?

I see Knotch spotlight and reward us for all kinds of wins. Since we're a small team, we celebrate them on Fridays in front of the whole company. Last year, I was lucky to help recruit a data science team member, and as a reward, Knotch flew me to my dream destination, Japan, to celebrate that success!

Ray

Associate Manager of Content Marketing

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We face new problems everyday but there is an incredible support system here and everyone works collaboratively towards the best solution. We are united by a common vision and transparent in every aspect of our operations, which is so rare to find.

Jason

VP of Finance

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Knotch's commitment to my personal growth has played a huge role in shaping my career. I've found that I'm happiest when collaborating with others and was encouraged to join the product team to work more closely across all of our teams. Knotch's L&D program has set me on a path that makes my work more fulfilling, pushing me to be better every day.

Willie

Project Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

On our revenue team, we foster an environment where everyone can feel it's safe to question things, and we celebrate them when they speak up and bring new ideas to the table.

Jamie

Senior Director, Sales Operations

What makes someone successful on your team?

In any company big or small, the Client Success or Account Management team can feel like a catch-all for your clients and products. Our team members go above and beyond the day-to-day. They make personal connections with each of our clients, see things from their perspective, and work hand-in-hand. That leads to happy clients and happy Knotchers.
