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.


Director of 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 Committee for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, 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!


Recruiting Coordinator

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at FWI inTech 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.


Technical Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We try to create an environment where every idea is worth voicing. It’s amazing how many innovative pathways stem from one seemingly crazy idea. We do our best to empower our team to act on their creative inspiration—bring us a rough draft, pitch us on your idea. Many breakthroughs and innovations have been born this way.


President and COO

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.
