What are some social events your company does?

At ThousandEyes we celebrate our employees each month with many different events that have ranged from birthday celebrations to a Halloween costume contest and a field day at Zilker Park. Our goal is to create an environment where we are celebrating our entire team!

Christie

Workplace Services Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

ThousandEyes truly values its employees and that was clear to me from day one. I always thought that transitioning out of sales would be impossible without an MBA, however the opportunity was afforded to me at ThousandEyes.

Charles

Customer Success Manager

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

One of our Sales DNA principles is "no limits". We demonstrate exponential thinking, we dream big, inspire our peers and act as the spark for change. I would say this is a common theme / trait across the tribe.

Luvlynn

VP, Inside Sales

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I believe ThousandEyes overall culture drives a positive work/life balance. Wellness is a DNA principle of ours, and it is truly taken to heart in all sense of the word. Top down, taking time away from work to spend quality time with family and/or doing what you love is encouraged and celebrated.
