An Insider's view of Hostwinds

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office vibe is relaxed and startup in feel. I enjoy working here because I do not feel limited in my creativity or my impact on the company due to the open office layout as well as direct access to every part of the company including management. No company I have worked with before has had such an "open door" feel as this one.


Web Support Specialist

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

When I code features that involve other teams in the company, I often ask for their input as far as what features they would like to see.


Senior PHP Developer

How does the company support your career growth?

One of my favorite thing is to watch an employee move up in our company. We encourage career development by mentoring and providing training. It sets our employees up for success and we get to retain talent.


Director of Human Resources

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

My door is always open for all staf members, I've enjoyed hearing, and then implementing great ideas that have come from all levels of our company. For my managers, I fully empower and convey to them that I trust in their decisions. I'm available day or night for them, if they're contacting me, I know the decision to do so was not made lightly.


Chief Operating Officer

What's something quirky about your company?

Hostwinds offers one of the most laid back work environments (and the strongest coffee) that I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Without the added pressure of an ultra-formal workplace, it’s easy to build relationships with fellow coworkers and feel like a part of the family from the get-go.
