Turbonomic has a culture of learners who stretch their boundaries and challenge themselves to become better each and every day. This constant learning is what fuels our success and keeps the work interesting. One person who has grown in big ways with Turbonomic is Catherine Kellogg, who is currently our Director of Field Marketing.
Continuing on our spotlight series of our remote workforce, we caught up with Rick Ochs who is a Senior Product Manager here at Turbonomic. He works out of his home in the Seattle area where he formerly worked at Microsoft.
Dallas DeMarr, our Technical Content Strategist lives almost 2,000 miles away from the Turbonomic Headquarters here in Boston and has been working remotely for over a year now. He provided a 'day in the life' rundown on remote work, which you can find here, but we wanted to also get a sense for the work-life balance, the tools that help him be successful while remote and more.
Working remotely and being across the country from your company HQ isn't always the easiest, but the benefits for some people can outweigh any of the cons that some might think of. I got to catch up with Ryan Geyer who joined Turbonomic in May of 2018. Ryan joined the company, but lived in Southern California. He embraced the 'what's next' in his career and took on a new challenge, which has proved worthwhile.
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.
This past year I have been looking for something in my life that would give me a real purpose. Not just a job but something that was fun, and I enjoyed doing. This made the job search a big challenge. I’ve been in the IT field for a long time in various positions. I also like to fix things and make them better, so finding the company that would value and enable me to improve the company while being in a field I enjoy again proved challenging. I wanted to share my experience interviewing with Turbonomic, which was nothing short of amazing! If you're considering Turbonomic, read on!
We're excited to follow up with part 2 of our Q&A series with go-to-market recruiter, Zach Choquette to dig deeper on the interview process at Turbonomic. I'll just get right into what Zach had to say:
Turbonomic is known as a company with a huge focus on innovation. If you missed our blog post about our culture of innovation, where we sat down with the CTO of Cloud, Mor Cohen-Tal, read it here. Even more so though, our culture is known as a high-performance, mission driven one and we strongly believe that in order to be successful here, you need to have what it takes to reach your highest potential and execute flawlessly. This is exactly what fuels our growth and continues to keep as the leaders in workload automation. To dig deeper into the value of performance at Turbonomic, I took some time to chat with Chief People Person, Kara Gilbert.
I recently caught up with CTO of Cloud at Turbonomic, Mor Cohen, and got her to discuss the three roles she has held here: Life as a Developer, Life as a Product Manager, and Life as CTO of Cloud. At Turbonomic you get the resources and support you need to accomplish your goals, but your career is very much in your hands in terms of how far you want it to go. For Mor, she was able to move from being a developer to a product manager and eventually became CTO of Cloud. Check out her write up below if you're curious what a day in the life is like for various roles here.
