How does your space drive productivity, collaboration and connectivity?
Our office space is open and inviting. We encourage our employees to sit wherever they work best. We also have a variety of rooms with sliding doors for our employees to use whenever they need a little privacy for heads-down work, 1:1s or small team meetings. To reflect the creative and collaborative nature of our team, most of our walls double as dry erase boards. In our communal office space, we have action figure trackers that create transparency and focus around company goals and help communicate our progress with the entire team.
What is the one thing that is unforgettable when someone walks through your space?
The most unforgettable thing about our space, is how open and collaborative our space is. Sitting just one story above Mass Ave, our office maintains the energy of the city, without the noise or stuffiness of working way up in a skyscraper. Because Torchlite is comprised of so much more than just our 30 full-time employees, we pride ourselves on being as welcoming as possible. We also always keep open desks for our Torchliters to come, plug-in and work from our office whenever they would like. WhenTorchliters, clients and other visitors come in, they always compliment how bright and inviting our space is.
How does your space tell your company’s story and reflect its brand?
Our office space was designed to reflect our core values; communication, collaboration, and curiosity. e have an open concept office, different gathering areas, and meeting spaces that foster curiosity and collaboration. We are incredibly proud of the brand and culture we have built at Torchlite, so you’ll find pops of Torchlite orange across the office from our projected logo and triangle pattern on the walls to our dish towels in the kitchen. We are also incredibly proud to call Indianapolis home, to illustrate this, we have Indianapolis artwork in all the meeting rooms, showing off our Indy pride and commitment to the tech community here.
How does your space engage your employee base?
We recently installed white board walls so we can jot down ideas wherever and whenever they come to us. We also have a dedicated agile board in the kitchen. Our team uses the agile board to make product recommendations Our Product team takes the suggested feedback and the entire team can view progress as their suggestions progress through steps of production. Our kitchen serves as one of our most central hubs. It is where we have quick meetings over pretzels and a diet coke, enjoy lunch together, host happy-hours and parties. Most importantly, the kitchen is where we have weekly Friday Stand Up meetings so that each department can share what they have been working on for the week, celebrate each others accomplishments, and collaborate together on our goals.
