An Insider's view of Ontic

What's something quirky about your company?

True to its Austin roots, Ontic is full of live music fans. Every time a new deal is closed, the Sales Director chooses a song to represent the new Ontic partner. The song is added to a playlist and the vinyl is even added to the office record collection to enjoy during happy hours.

Anna

Product Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm most excited about hitting new markets, new companies and accounts, and getting the word out. Another excellent happenstance at Ontic is that we are in 'category creation mode', and it is exciting being at the precipice of a new idea not just a new technology.

Peter

Account Executive

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I originally joined Ontic as an SDR on the Sales team. As I began learning the industry and Ontic itself, I became really interested with the Security Intelligence team. My manager encouraged me to explore other teams and after doing some testing, I was promoted to Security Intelligence Analyst. This wouldn't have been possible without the support.

Jordan

Security Intelligence Analyst

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

As salespeople we're typically the folks who spend the most time speaking with new potential partners and understanding the ecosystems and strategies they and their teams employ. The feedback the Sales Team provides is taken into account immediately by other groups and these other teams nimbly shift approaches, priorities, and strategies.

David

Sales Director

How does the company support your career growth?

Ontic focuses on career growth in many ways, whether that's in meetings with direct supervisors or the team lead. Those conversations help to increase opportunities where we can grow together and support the business.
