An Insider's view of Four Winds Interactive

What's something quirky about your company?

It took me a while to adjust to the fitness culture at FWI. I would show up to a meeting and the person sitting across from me might have just come back from yoga or CrossFit dressed in their workout gear. Once I got used to seeing executives in sandals and sweats every once in a while, I’ve come to love how invested FWI is with employee wellness.

Steve

Senior Director, Technical Operations

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm excited about FWI’s exemplary commitment to its people. It’s evident there are many diversity and inclusion efforts, not only led by our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council but also from motivated individual contributors. This creates an environment where we can stay true to our core values and bring our best selves every day!

Maithy

Talent Acquisition Partner

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at FWI in Tech Support. After a year of learning as much as I could about FWI’s Content Manager applications, I applied for the Technical Engineer position with FWI’s Tiger Team. I will continue to grow my career as FWI continues building the latest and greatest tech and software in the digital signage industry.

Will

Technical Engineer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Working remotely during the pandemic, we realized we loved the flexibility but also missed one another. We started a cross-collaborative team to emerge our way of working, with a vision to connecting the positives from both. With design thinking, we found diverse and inclusive solutions that reinvented our office and evolved our work culture.

Kelly

Chief Design Officer

How does the company support your career growth?

As a manager on the People Operations team, I find there are an abundance of opportunities to get involved with supporting personal and professional growth. As a first-time manager, I get to participate in an interactive Manager Bootcamp. FWI also hosts a monthly manager round table, which gives everyone the opportunity to communicate and connect.
