An Insider's view of Thought Industries

What’s the vibe like in the office?

High performance, high energy, low pressure, family; those are some things that come to mind. Every department has its own styles. The common theme is hard work for sure, mixed with business oriented but still relaxed and easy going. Everyone is in it for the next person. It genuinely feels like a family.


Project Manager

What does your typical day look like?

My day officially begins at 8:30A.M, throughout the day I am in & out of meetings, personalizing emails & prospecting new accounts. Cold calling may not sound glorious , but Thought Industries makes work enjoyable with moments spent chit-chatting with other members of ‘the pit’, petting office dogs, snacking on food & coffee that is provided for us


BDR Team Lead

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I joined Thought Industries when we first launched. I learned to wear many hats and understand various aspects by working with/in each department. As we grew I was supported in developing core skills specific to my career passion. Thought Industries continues to support, mentor and develop our employees and that is something to take a lot of pride.
