An Insider's view of FourKites, Inc.

What are some social events your company does?

The team at FourKites makes sure to take time to get a little competitive. Happy hour at SPiN allowed the teams to bond over snacks, libations and some fierce ping pong skills.

What projects are you most excited about?

We are working on a project to add functionality to our platform that will increase our customer’s visibility and add flexibility to our integrations. This has required collaboration between multiple departments to ensure that the scoping of the multiple product enhancement tickets are detailed and address the problems of all stakeholders.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started with FourKites as executive admin support & office manager. Several months into the role, I discussed growth opportunities with my manager and expressed an interest in moving into the HR function. The company supported my growth by sponsoring my SHRM certification and at my 1yr anniversary, I officially transitioned into a HR role!
