As a startup, being a proactive doer at Knotel is nurtured and celebrated. Employees are of all ages, come from diverse backgrounds, and are driven by an ambitious cleverness to push boundaries. Knotel considers itself a community of doers, and offers its employees a chance to take ownership of their ideas and implement them in a supportive have-fun-and-get-work-done environment.
At Knotel, perks are everywhere—it's part of the business of running HQs for large companies. Knotel employees get to participate in everything—yoga and meditation classes, speaker events on important topics, regular happy hours, and so on. But just as importantly, they get to design what happens. The distributed model of managing workspaces means everyone on the team plays a role in shaping what comes to life and fosters community.
“The learning environment is incredible. You have a number of folks who are working with the company who serve as mentors and enjoy doing it.”
“The biggest thing that sticks out to me about my co-workers is that we have a combination of everyone who wants to have fun but also is really invested in what they do and are able to get stuff done.”
