An Insider's view of Ontic

What's something quirky about your company?

For such a critical mission - protecting people and assets - we remember to joke around when we're not discussing high stakes matters. Whether it's associating a song with each new client to virtual theme parties that are actually fun, to friendly banter, we provide a feeling of being cared for sets the stage for a positive, authentic culture.

Content Marketing

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We use every channel at our disposal to communicate and break down barriers internally - from Slack and Email to texting, calling, and of course video conference calling with colleagues to get quick answers to pressing questions, strategically consider new partnerships or data integrations.

David

Sales Director

How does the company support your career growth?

Ontic does an amazing job at providing employees with cross functional visibility. Having leadership and coworkers that are willing to make themselves available allows everyone to understand the business as a whole, not just their role.

Rob

Success Manager

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

Our team at Ontic has a great responsibility in the execution of many of the ideas from all parts of the company. As well as being on the frontline with the Sales team, business development is the eyes and ears as we introduce Ontic to new potential clients and hear about the latest trends and challenges in the security world.

Peter

Sales Development Representative

What makes someone successful on your team?

Someone who is curious, empathetic, and doesn't have an ego. We have to ask the right questions to solve beyond tactical issues and deliver strategic initiatives that drive business objectives. We collaborate with each other and cross-functionally constantly, so our team works 'for the greater good' rather than personal praise.
