Work with a Top Knotch Team
Our ambition for Knotch careers is to build a completely flexible culture that accepts and values people’s differences. We get to come in every day and feel that we belong. We’re fueled by curiosity, and we aren’t afraid to fail. We’re inclusive, we’re transparent, and we’re relentless. Our emphasis on positive reinforcement motivates all of us to work harder. Companies don’t fail, people give up. We’re in this together, and we’re never giving up.

Hiring During COVID-19
Our world is experiencing a global health crisis, and we have all been affected. Job seekers may face an uphill battle, as many companies slow their hiring during this pandemic. Amidst uncertainty of how COVID-19 will affect the global economy, we believe that Knotch is in a strong position, and we are committed to hiring essential positions. As a platform, we are measuring COVID-19 content & communications for enterprises for free. As a brand, we are hosting weekly virtual roundtables with industry thought leaders. As a company, we are providing additional benefits to our employees as we all work remotely.

The Band of Misfits
(INCLUSION AT KNOTCH)
Our Co-Founder and CEO, Anda Gansca, often refers to Knotch as a “band of misfits.” Throughout history, it’s misfits that have ignited change, turned conversation into action, and dismantled accepted concepts of “fitting in.” Whether it was Elizabeth Cady Staton leading the Suffrage Movement; Oliver Brown fighting the US government to allow his daughter, Linda Carol Brown, to go to integrated school; or Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson rioting police brutality against the LGBTQ+ community and throwing the first bricks at Stonewall — those bold enough to challenge systemic norms are the ones that create a better, more inclusive future for all of us.
At Knotch, we aim to celebrate diverse voices and foster belonging and inclusion across all teams and functions. We acknowledge that, similar to many in the tech space, we have more work to do when it comes to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging. We are committed to hiring more Black talent, fostering belonging amongst our represented communities through ERGs and committees, and frequently educating and training our staff on anti-bias, anti-harassment, and anti-racism. Like the misfits before us, we are committed to turning conversation into action and redefining what it means to “fit in.”
We at Knotch are breaking the mold, by empowering brands and consumers to own their voice online. Internally, we are empowering employees to own their voice in the workplace. Diverse perspectives and experiences are necessary if we aim to fully realize our core value of Inclusiveness. We are committed to putting in the work to make that core value more of a reality every day.
HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM THE PEOPLE
Knotch’s commitment to my personal growth has played a huge role in shaping my career. I’ve found that I’m happiest when collaborating with others and was encouraged to join the product team. Knotch’s L&D program has set me on a path that makes my work more fulfilling, pushing me to be better every day.
I joined Knotch because I was intrigued by how invested Anda is in both the company’s success as well as employee engagement and wellness. I’ve stayed because I’m challenged every day, while being properly supported. I love coming into work every day because my coworkers are silly and fun to be around, but also know how to get stuff done.
I see Knotch spotlight and reward us for all kinds of wins. Since we’re a small team, we celebrate them on Fridays in front of the whole company. Last year, I was lucky to help recruit a data science team member, and as a reward, Knotch flew me to my dream destination, Japan, to celebrate that success!
A major reason I joined Knotch was for the people. I knew instantly when I interviewed this was somewhere I wanted to be – we’ve cultivated a culture that allows every individual to bring their best and truest selves to work everyday!
At Knotch, I’ve been given the opportunity to work on a variety of complex and creative partnerships with the world’s leading brands and agencies. Every challenge I’ve faced with a team of talented colleagues, and fearless leaders.
When it comes to my career, I value the people I work with the most. I can honestly say I enjoy coming to work everyday and that’s because of the team we have here at Knotch. I am surrounded by people who challenge me, support me, and encourage me to strive for greatness.
What I love most about Knotch is the absolutely contagious, goal-oriented camaraderie amongst the team. Everyone is consistently pushing the product forward, as well as one another, and doing so wearing a smile of pride. Thus making Knotch an incredible place to grow as an engineer and an individual.
