An Insider's view of Knotel

What are some social events your company does?

Knotel encourages its employees to socialize during the workday, but also provides fun events and opportunities outside of work for everyone to enjoy. We love hosting themed happy hours, and there's always a Knotel intramural sport you can join. Right now we're preparing for our summer retreat at a local summer camp–hilarious photos to come!

What projects are you most excited about?

Where do I start? Knotel has many incredible teams working on projects from increasing the agility and modularity of our spaces to improving the quality and diversity of our product line to meet the needs of our growing roster of corporate customers. My favorite thing about Knotel is that every employee has ownership of projects big and small.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Knotel's rapid expansion has provided me with a very dynamic work environment. Over the last year, new projects and new roles have created pathways to grow within the company. I'm constantly challenged to own my role as it evolves, and I'm encouraged to build new skills. This has and will continue to be invaluable to my career as a Project Manager.

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

The Workshops team has the unique opportunity to explore how to make the Knotel membership more valuable through new ventures and products. In partnership with the expertise within each vertical of the company, we are able to test, learn, launch and scale new ventures and products that build on the Knotel core offering.

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I really love my work and I enjoy being with my team, so work doesn’t feel like work. However, no matter how much I love producing results, my family comes first. Knotel has been incredibly accepting of my wonky schedule so that I can get quality time with my family. So my work and life are perfectly balanced here.
