At 14 West, employees and their career path are front and center. And often, teammates break the mold.
“You don’t have to have a degree from MIT or have X years of experience,” said Jennifer DiFolco, Director of Talent Acquisition for 14 West. “If you can show us what you’ve done, on your own or with a group of friends in your garage, and if we can see that you’ve got the skills to translate that into our world, some of our best hires have come from that.”
Director of Development, Cory Chambers knows of this first hand. “My personal story is they gave me an opportunity when no one else would,” he said.
When Chambers graduated from college, he couldn’t find an engineering job. He felt that no one would take a chance on a junior developer.
But 14 West did.
After he was hired, Chambers was promoted to a management position within nine months. And the company asked him how they could find and coach more junior developers like him. “At the rate in which we’ve grown, I now manage a team of about nine or 10 people and we’re still adding to that,” he said.
14 West also hosts an extensive internship program, wherein 26 to 28 interns come in for orientation each May. The internship program includes big outings such as sailing, team building activities, and real world experience in an elite and growing enterprise.
It’s a demonstrated set of values — focused on people — that extends to the company’s philanthropic approach, as well.
The company has set up a philanthropic newsletter that reaches out to employees wanting to volunteer with one of 40 non-profit organizations the company is in touch with. This includes food drives, toy drives, monthly volunteer activities, toy and food distribution following the drives, and monthly visits to Our Daily Bread, a Baltimore-based hot meal program and employment center.
