Culture:

Like every company, we have an acronym that conveys the most important aspects of the culture we strive to have, ours is PACTS:

Practicality: Am I incrementally improving something or delaying perfection?

Ambition: Am I staying in my comfort zone as opposed to learning and communicating what is necessary to solve the real challenges?

Clarity: Is my audience understanding what I’m communicating?

Trust: Am I being sincere and trusting others to do the same?

Service: Am I expecting more from myself than from others?

This acronym is only as useful as the integrity of the people who reference it and believe in it. Every person at Feathr will face challenges, the most important quality is a commitment to work through those challenges with self-awareness and honesty.

Office and Location:

After operating remotely throughout the pandemic for over a year, returning to the office, then transitioning back to a remote environment, Feathr has made the exciting decision to officially move to a hybrid work model before 2022. Currently, we are open to considering candidates within Gainesville, or a close enough distance to travel to the office as-needed. Requirements of in-person attendance are still being determined and will likely be established by department leaders for their team.
