Perks and Programs

We asked Terakeet to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Entrepreneurship Day: Every year, Terakeet holds a hack-a-thon style event where employees can work together over the course of 36 hours to come up with new ideas to develop and present to the company founders. Projects range from new product ideas to employee benefit suggestions to recommendations for improving internal efficiencies.

  • Circle-Up: Every Friday morning, all Terakeet employees get together for a light breakfast and a brief meeting where important updates and exemplary employee performances (shout outs) are shared with the group. This regular event began when the company had only eleven employees and continues today, even as they approach 200 employees.

How to Get Hired

We asked Terakeet for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

Our focus is on finding people who are adaptable and change-oriented. People who get excited about controlled chaos within a fast moving operation. We want to know that an applicant has faced adversity, and found ways to overcome it. And, we need people who are dedicated to living out our vision. It’s the people who create our culture and fuel our success. And it’s important that we know we are hiring individuals whose ambition matches our vision. Through plenty of research and conversations with inspiring professionals, we’ve dedicated our time to evolving our hiring process and making sure we get the right character fit on the front end. We do this through a rigorous interview process, inclusive of a multi-profile assessment. We’ve found incredible patterns and themes that have helped us develop a success profile for working at Terakeet.

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Most importantly, we want to get to know you as a person, not just a potential future employee. We want to know what makes you who you are. Critical to our hiring strategy is finding people who are going to make the fabric of this organization better. And because of that, we want to know about you. Additionally, something that often gets overlooked today is relevancy and connecting yourself to the open job and/or employer. As an organization that has hired every degree of study imaginable into our entry-level marketing role, we have found an ability to tell your audience a relevant and relatable story is what can you apart. From your first impression (resume) to your last, we want to know what makes you a good fit at Terakeet and why we are the right fit for you.

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

Our focus is always very simple: we want to get better, stronger, and more diverse together. Regardless of role, we are committed to continuing to find the best and brightest for our organization.

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

Interested candidates should visit our job listing page at terakeet.com/careers to see if there is anything open that they think might be a good fit. They should also read through our “Inside Terakeet” blog and visit our company social media accounts (@Terakeet on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook) and our employment brand Terakeet Cafe (@terakeetcafe) to learn more about what it is really like to work for a rewarding, but extremely fast-paced organization. Last, but most importantly, if you like what you see, apply!
