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.

  • Terakeet Field Day: During the summer, Terakeet has an annual field day, inviting all employees to a local park for a cookout, yard games, and team-building events.
  • 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.
  • Quarterly Update Meetings: At the conclusion of each quarter Terakeet hosts a company-wide meeting where our CEO transparently provides updates on company performance, highlights major accomplishments, and lays out goals for the coming quarter. These meetings occasionally follow a theme (i.e. all employees wore a costume to the third quarter update last October) and are followed by some sort of company outing/catered meal.
  • Marc Murray Award: Terakeet presents an annual award to an employee whose peers feel best exemplifies key character traits similar to those demonstrated by Marc Murray, a former employee who passed away in 2011 from complications due to Leukemia.
  • 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.
  • Teraversary Photos: Each month employees who are celebrating their Terakeet employment anniversary get together to take a themed photo to be posted on our social media profiles.

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 people are what drive our vision; they create our culture and they fuel our success. 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.   Our focus is on finding people that are adaptable and change oriented. People that get excited about chaos and a fast moving operation. We want to know that people have faced adversity, and have found ways to overcome it. And, we need people that are ambitious and dedicated to living out our mission and vision.   

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

We’re a family, and we want people joining are teams that are going to make the fabric of this organization better. And because of that we want to know about you. We want to know you as a person, and not just a future employee. We want to know what makes you who you are.   Additionally, one thing 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 really believe that telling a story and making your story relevant to your audience will set you a part. From your first impression (resume), to your last, we want to know why you 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?

We are just looking to get better, stronger, and more diverse together. Regardless of role, our focus is to continue to find the best and brightest for our organization and culture. 

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

I would encourage interested candidates to check out our employment brand @terakeetcafe on twitter, instagram and facebook. This will give candidates an opportunity to have a real look inside the life of Terakeet employees. Additionally, sign up for our newsletter and job notifications. And when we finally get you on the hook, apply!
