What do employees love about the work they get to do at STRATIS?

Our team gets to tackle challenges every day by doing the latest and greatest in smart access and the IoT world. Our company is managing IoT devices in multifamily spaces, meaning we have to balance the privacy and autonomy of the resident versus the responsibilities and needs of the people who run the property. On top of that, we need to make sure the nitty-gritty of the tech is working.

STRATIS’ tech plays an important role in the day-to-day lives of the clients we serve. Our team is driven to serve our clients so families across the globe enjoy their safe, comfortable homes.

 

How do you acclimate a new hire in a remote working environment?

After you join the team, we hold an onboarding process that includes informative conversations about STRATIS’ history and mission. We prioritize this, since it’s a chance for you to learn why your work and time at STRATIS is so valuable. By the way, our encouragement of new ideas led to an employee suggesting a more robust approach to onboarding mid-pandemic and the development of our current process — so we mean it when we say we want to hear what you think.

STRATIS also offers a mentorship program, so you can connect with a seasoned employee. We aim to welcome you into our collaborative and supportive network.

 

What will I learn at STRATIS?

No question goes unanswered at STRATIS. Once you join the squad, reach out to any team member whose work you’re curious about. Our Slack is very much driven by an open-door policy.

Though we have grown over the years, STRATIS has a startup spirit and loves finding go-getters that see growth in their own roles and professional careers. If you want to think big, we can’t wait to meet you.
