I figured, why not start off the New Year with a blog about “Why I joined Turbonomic?”. We could end this blog in two sentences as answering the question “why” is relatively easy; the culture and passion. But I feel I need to dive deeper as this requires a bit of backstory on my previous experience working with Turbonomic that dates back to when I worked for AWS (Amazon Web Services).
Adding to our blog series on our company values, we wanted to get some perspective on our "performance culture" that sits at the core of how we operate and why we've grown so quickly. We caught up with Catherine Kellogg to get her thoughts on this value.
Another Turbonomic Halloween is wrapped up and finished. It was great to see all the creative costumes, office treats and of course the fun that was had by all. Check out a slideshow of our employee costumes. Next up... Company Pot Luck Lunch in November!
As we continue our series of insider recruiter tips that will help position you in the best way possible for an interview at Turbonomic, we’re releasing yet another characteristic that we look for in all of our candidates.
Company transparency is a hot button topic these days, but how are we at Turbonomic addressing transparency? It's one of our core values, so let's take a look at a few ways we remain transparent.
The Technology industry has always been moving fast and often times it can seem difficult to navigate for people getting their foot in the door. This month we’re showcasing our devotion to our company value of ‘Transparency’ in a few ways, but for this blog we wanted to highlight one of the characteristics that our recruiting team looks for in all of our candidates, so you'll have an insider tip on what we look for. Yes, we’re giving you some insider information, but our hope is that you’ll have a better idea if Turbonomic is a good fit for you and your working style.
Turbonomic offers flexibility for our workforce whether they're based at our Headquarters, one of our global offices, or you're remote. The company is continuing to improve the ways we connect and communicate with the goal of strengthening our team and succeeding in our mission to serve our customers.
At Turbonomic we have 3-Core Cultural Pillars that drive what we do and how we operate as a team. These pillars are; Trust, Performance and Transparency. When we think about Trust within our culture, there are countless examples of how trust as a foundational piece of our culture has grown organically and continues to thrive as we grow. One person who closely relates to the pillar of Trust is Yulanda, our Payroll Manager here at Turbonomic.
Last month we sat down with CTO of Cloud at Turbonomic, Mor Cohen-Tal, who shared some insights into our culture of innovation and how she has been able to navigate changes on a daily basis. We followed up with part two of our Q&A to dive into some of the unique facets of our engineering culture and the challenging projects that keep things exciting for her.
It’s not very common to find a workplace that allows you to be yourself - meaning that you can be transparent at work about your interests and hobbies outside of work. Bringing my authentic self to work hasn’t always been easy at past companies, but from time to time there are gems. For myself, I use to struggle with being open about my hobby of gaming – which might sound silly, but it did indeed have a bad connotation in many workplaces. It seemed like the days of tech company game culture had come and gone.
