ANOTHER Successful FGCU Careerfair

Spigot, Inc. loves their relationship with FGCU and today we got the opportunity to participate in another careerfair and met a ton of current students and alumni with potential interest in working with us. We also just added on an additional recruiter due to our growing business and he got to see the campus and chat with people – as well as learn more about FGCU and their career services. Spigot, Inc. had a prize wheel and students won koozies, ping pong balls, phone wallets, candy and Spigot, Inc. T-shirts – it was a hit! We are definitely looking forward to continuing our conversations with a handful of students we met today, we are actively hiring for entrepreneurial minded, competitive individuals that are looking to kick start their career in an innovative company.

Spigot, Inc. often offers internships; and we are always seeking talented Analysts, Media Buyers and Developers in the local area. We also LOVE hiring FGCU graduates and right now we have a total of 16 alumni – which makes up 1/4 of our employees and we are welcoming more!

ANOTHER Reason to Move to Fort Myers: Topgolf is Coming!

Spigot, Inc. is located in one of the warmest parts of the country and now there is another added bonus; we’re getting a Topgolf! According to an article in NBC2 News  last week, it will be built off of I-75 near 6 Mile Cypress & Colonial Blvd. For those of you who don’t know; Top-golf is a a game where the players hit micro-chipped golf balls at giant dartboard-like targets on an outfield. The closer the player gets their ball to the centre or ‘bullseye’ and the further the distance, the more points earned. The fun and games don’t stop there; you can even indulge in delicious food and drinks brought to you while you play and it’s going to be in our backyard – what could be better?

Topgolf  has been a great team-building activity for our Kansas City Office so we are pretty excited it’s going to be extended to our FL office too!

Spigot, Inc. Invasion at The Tiki Bar

Spigot, Inc. is growing like crazy, to the point where employees are beginning to not know one another – so what’s the perfect solution? A company-wide happy hour! Last night Spigot, Inc. invaded the Tiki Bar in Fort Myers and had a blast. We ordered a TON of tacos from Taco Viva Pizzeria, played hours of (seriously competitive) games of corn hole and mingled with new and old employees! 

In the past month we have had 4 new employees start, and Spigot, Inc’s office is growing rapidly-  so everyone doesn’t always get the chance to mingle throughout the whole office. Not only did our new hires get to come out and hang out, one of interviewees yesterday got to know the team outside of the office.

We are looking to double our staff in 2019, so if you are looking for a career change, want to join a GROWING company who cares about culture and their employees, Spigot, Inc. would love to hear from you! Send your resume to us at careers@spigot.com and be sure to follow us on LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram… like us on Facebook and never miss out on the Spigot, Inc. lifestyle.

Facebook Is Outspending Amazon and Google to Dominate Voice-Activated Devices

Last year, Amazon and Google both backed their voice-activated devices with huge ad budgets across more than 28,400 TV airings. Facebook spent $131 million on TV alone during the fourth quarter to promote it’s video-conferencing device portal, amazingly outspending Amazon and Google (which is no easy feat)! Tech companies are currently using TV’s brand-building power to promote their devices to a broad plethora of potential consumers. Experts are suggesting that the massive ad-spending trend will continue in the 2019 year, but indicate Facebook could potentially struggle with maintaining it’s aggressive ad spending. The race for tech companies to control the living room is increasingly relying more and more on advertising, specifically TV advertising.

Happy New Year From Spigot, Inc!

It’s a new year and it’s time for new goals, new perspectives, and most importantly new resolutions! As cliche as it is, having a New Year’s resolution is a great attitude and morale booster, especially in the work place. At Spigot, Inc. we think it’s important to achieve your goals and dreams, that’s why this year we all got pieces of paper and wrote down our work places resolutions. Sometimes people might want to keep these resolutions to themselves so sharing with the office is optional.

New Years is also a great time to reflect on the previous year. 2018 was great to us here at Spigot, Inc., we experienced exponential growth, so many new individuals joined our team, and we had some amazing work gatherings.

Anything that promotes competitiveness and collaboration are welcome here, and this past week Super Smash Bro’s has been extremely popular.
