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 we have more work to do when it comes to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging. The tech space is an arena ready for change, and it can start with us. 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. Knotch Engineering Team Knotch’s vision is to allow brands and consumers to own their voice online. Transparency through data is our ethos and something every member of our company takes seriously. Our Engineering Team loves to experiment, finds a deep joy in product iteration and achieves stability with thoughtful architecture and testing all while monitoring our performance and progress at every step. We receive millions of web requests a day, process insights in real-time, and store gigabytes worth of information in our cloud-based architecture. These well-designed architectures, simple yet effective software implementations, and iterative executions have been the keys to our success thus far.
