An Insider's view of Khoros

What are some social events your company does?

Khoros Austin embodies cultural diversity through inclusivity and team engagement. Not only do we offer daily catered lunches and weekly bootcamp and yoga classes, but we organize unique monthly happy hour experiences, (mixology contests, candle making, mindfulness classes) quarterly volunteer opportunities and partnerships with local non-profits.

Laura Whitefield

ATX Senior Executive Assistant & Cultural Specialist

What does your typical day look like?

My day starts with a quick check of slack for anything urgent. Daily meetings include selecting new vendors, working on implementations, supporting the business with projects, or having 1x1s. I try to block time for focused project work, daily walks and lunch away from my desk. In between, I'll catch up on our Khoros Slack social channels

Deb de Freitas

Director, Business Systems

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

It’s our mission to internally plug Strategic Services into every team throughout Khoros. We’re super-users of the product, so we provide input and feedback. We interact with customers daily, so we convey what they’re asking for, and we want to facilitate collaboration to make an even stronger “One Khoros.”

Spike Jones

General Manager, Strategic Services

What makes someone successful on your team?

Heart. It's rare to work in a culture that values who you really are, but it can also be a lot to ask if you're not used to it. Team members who can let their walls down and make their work personal truly thrive in our environment.
