Spigot, Inc. Mobile Team Wheel of Fortune Hosted by Gameshow Gauntlet!

Spigot, Inc. is on week 11 of social distancing – and still keeping up on the virtual happy hours! Last Friday, Spigot, Inc.’s Mobile team decided to do a Pre-Memorial Day Happy Hour and play Wheel of Fortune! The show was hosted by Gameshow Gauntlet (Highly recommend) and it was a blast! Everyone hopped on Zoom at 3pm, made a drink, grabbed a few teammates and got to participate in the fun. Cory – the creator of Gameshow Gauntlet develops all the games himself and pre Covid would do them at bars, but they work perfectly virtually as well! Spigot, Inc. and our sister companies have enjoyed several virtual happy hour games.

Spigot, Inc. is unsure when we will be able to work all together again in the office – so continuing to put on “virtual” team building events is important. We are STILL hiring and have several positions open on our Linkedin. Spigot, Inc. would love to hear from you! Send your resume to careers@spigot.com for review!

Spigot, Inc. and Sister Companies are in the BEST Locations

Sunny Southwest FL is home to one of our three Spigot, Inc. offices and couldn’t be more beautiful. We are located within miles of  Naples Beach, Bonita Beach, Sanibel Island, and Captiva Island. We are also only a quick 2 hour road trip to Miami or Tampa and an hour from Marco Island. Spigot, Inc. employees get to see some of the prettiest sunsets, swim in the most beautiful water and enjoy sunshine almost every day! Spigot, Inc.’s sister companies Eightpoint Technologies & Polarity Technologies are also located in prime spots. Eightpoint Technologies is on Grand Cayman Island (with a water view!) and Polarity is located in the heart of Cyprus.

If the island life isn’t for you, Spigot, Inc. also has 2 locations in cool cities! One location is in the heart of Downtown Kansas City Missouri (with a rooftop spot too) and our other is in the heart of Europe – in Bucharest, Romania. Florida sunset

There really is something for everyone at Spigot, Inc. We are really fortunate to get the opportunity to travel to our other locations (and sometimes) our sister company’s locations as well!

world of beer triviaSpigot, Inc. is on week 8 of quarantine, and not seeing one-another in person, so we figured we’d high-light some of the activities that went on a year ago in May! Spigot, Inc. takes pride in their company culture and all the things we do to provide a sense of “community” in the office between team members. beerpong spigotinc partyThe first two weeks of May 2019 were a blast according to #throwbackthursday! Spigot, Inc. threw an in-office Cinco de Mayo party with a pinata filled with baby nerf guns, candy and collectible cards. Spigot, Inc. employees also got together and went bowling at Headpinz, played (and won, duh) trivia at World of Beer, had an all-company Happy Hour at WOB, ate lunch together in the office – and just participated in overall collaboration in our couch areas.

Spigot, Inc. employees really miss their competitive games of darts, ping ping, Super smash and Foosball. Hopefully we’ll be back in the office soon enough – with a bunch of new employees!

Spigot, Inc. is STILL hiring – we have brought on an additional 8 employees since quarantine, and are seeking to hire more.

Zoom: Their Success Didn’t Just Stem from Covid, they Mastered the Art of Profitable Growth

Zoom has become an extremely popular tool over the last several months as we’ve all been practicing “social distancing.  Individuals went from having no idea what this tool was, to conducting happy hours, parties, school, dates, brunch & tons of work conferences on the daily. You may think that Zoom just got “lucky” with this pandemic, but the truth is – they have been climbing the ladder as a successful “start-up” for the past 9 years. Covid definitely brought more traffic and attention to their products, as there has been a much higher need for it, but they were killing it before this! Zoom creator, Eric Yuan, had the vision “video is the future of communications” – and it definitely looks like that future came much faster and more abruptly than he thought.

“From the start, Zoom aspired to stand out in a market of products that were probably more hated than loved. In a letter to shareholders included with its paperwork for going public a year ago, founder and CEO Eric Yuan talked about “how unhappy” people were with the videoconference tools on the market. But that was before the pandemic. Now video conferencing tools have gone from the punchline of a dry office joke to a vital social lifeline — and perhaps none more so than Zoom.” an article from CNN Business stated.

In recent weeks, Zoom has emerged as the most downloaded app on the Apple App Store, repeatedly breaking its download records. On Monday March 23, Zoom was downloaded 2.13 million times worldwide, up from 2.04 million the day before, according to app tracking firm Apptopia. Two months prior, the app had just under 56,000 global downloads in a day.

Another key metric in Zoom’s success is Yuan’s vision for company culture.His focus was to build a company culture around promoting “happiness. Very early on, we spoke about customer experience and culture; two things he really cared about,” said Quinn Li, senior vice president of Qualcomm Ventures, an early Zoom investor. “He would write back to any customer that would write to him, which is very rare for a company CEO to do.”

At Spigot, Inc. we all really love Zoom! We also appreciate a company with the drive to win, willingness to please users and a great company culture. This article really does show how much hard work pays off – especially for a small start up, they went from a small video conferencing tool, to going public and competing with Skype.

Spigot, Inc. is also rapidly growing! With more individuals at home, traffic to our products has increased – and we are STILL hiring! Send your resume to careers@spigot.com for review!

Spigot, Inc. Virtual Trivia Happy Hour = Big Success

Update: Week 6 on lock down – Spigot, Inc. is still working from home! If you follow our blog, you know that we frequently have parties, hang out with one another outside of the office, travel together and participate in team building events. We’ve decided to keep that going, but virtually! So last week – Spigot, Inc. put together a Spigot, Inc. Virtual Happy Hour for all employees to attend! We had a total of around 30 employees and 5 teams participate in the event. It was hosted through Zoom by Trivia Mafia – and was a BLAST! Not only was it fun to see one another in a group setting again, we got to compete – and there were even prizes at stake!

Trivia Mafia did a great job organizing the game. They helped us set up teams by using a Zoom registration. Once the teams were set up, we were all sent a Google forms document to fill in our answers. The host of the show read all 5 questions for the round, and then sent us off into Zoom “break-out” rooms to discuss our answers. We were given 5 minutes to submit our answers and then the host pulled us all back into the same room to let us trash talk (lol) – and read us the next set of questions.

The game was VERY close, and the questions were challenging – but fun! We will definitely be doing this again, and participating in their private online hosted events!

Spigot, Inc. really loves investing in their people – and creating a team and “fun” environment is one way we accomplish that. As we are in quarantine, we are continually looking for ways to promote comradery. This definitely won’t be our last “virtual” team event! Stay tuned to see what other fun things we’re up to!

Week 3 of Quarantine: Spigot, Inc. Employees Are Getting Creative

If you’ve been following our blog – you have seen that Spigot, Inc. has been in quarantine for 3 weeks now, and that they’ve found plenty of things to keep themselves (and their kids, “new coworkers.”) busy. Quarantine has been a good way to unwind from the chaos of everyday life, but have we gone crazy yet?! Some say that they are still good – practicing a healthier lifestyle, spending more time eating dinners with family and catching up on all the shows they’ve ever wanted to watch on Netflix (and Tiger King), but others are ready for this to be over! Thankfully in the business we are in – we are in the position to make MORE money because people are at home, scrolling through the internet and clicking on ads. Not only that – Spigot, Inc. is used to working remotely with their international offices, and sister companies. We have also found that we are just as productive (if not more) while working from home, so we are set from that perspective!

Outside of our 8 hour work from home workday, Spigot, Inc. employees have gotten creative (like always). As seen above some are literally making lemonade out of lemons, tons of fresh home-made meals, buying giant blow up slides, throwing it back and playing DDR, spending quality time with their animals, putting together 1000 piece puzzles, “self-isolating” out on the ocean on their boats and participating in work-out challenges.

It’s never a dull moment inside or outside the Spigot, Inc. office! Our employees are what makes coming to work everyday so much fun – and we are still enjoying working together on our Zoom calls (and happy hours)! If you think this is the type of work culture you are yearning for – Spigot, Inc. is STILL hiring! We have a bunch of open positions on our Linkedin and Website – feel free to apply OR send your resume to careers@spigot.com for review! Check out all of our adventures on the Spigot Inc blog.

Spigot, Inc. & Sister Company Employees are ALL Working From Home – Do We Like it or Hate it?!

Due to the Coronavirus Spigot, Inc. and our sister companies decided starting yesterday that the smartest approach would be to close our offices and have all employees work from home in “self isolation.” In general, Spigot, Inc. employees spend a great deal of time with one another in and outside of work – and working on each other’s computers collaborating, so we thought it would be best to shut down the offices. NO – we aren’t crazy, but we definitely don’t want to contribute to the medical facilities being overrun by sick patients like stated in this article and graph. Florida is slowly closing down all their public places, as of right now public school, bars and nightclubs are all on a mandatory close – so Spigot, Inc. employees staying home as much as possible is 70 less people to spread the virus!

The real question though is – do we like it or hate it?! Sure, working from home is nice – and I don’t think any of us have reached talking to a volley ball status yet BUT the consensus seems to be – we’d rather be in the office! When Spigot, Inc. employees were notified of the closure there were tons of complaints of not being able to collaborate and general boredom. Some Spigot, Inc. employees, however, have enjoyed their time home with their pets and swimming pools – as seen in the photos!

Spigot, Inc. employees are extremely fortunate to work for a company that is internet based and fully functional remotely. We are also fortunate that every enjoys coming into the office so much they were disappointed we were closing! If you want to work for a company where the employees are happy and values their employees health/well-being you’ve come to the right place! Send your resume to careers@spigot.com for review!

Spigot, Inc. Wishes Megan Well!

Spigot, Inc. has an extremely unique culture in many different aspects – it’s part of our success and the main reason for our employee happiness and low turn-over. Hard work, dedication and risk taking really go along way here. One of our employees, Megan Wells is starting a new chapter of her life – and we all got to wish her well today! It is definitely a really cool story and a great example of the culture and mindset here at Spigot, Inc. so we thought we’d share!

Megan’s career at Spigot started when she was brought on as our admin to help with the day to day shenanigans. She graduated early from FGCU with an economics degree and had a desire to help out on the finance team. Megan took the initiative and sought a role on the finance team. Initially she lent a helping hand on some projects that the finance team had been working on and quickly proved her exemplary attention to detail and drive to learn (all while maintaining her other full time admin position).  In just 2 months Megan created a role for herself that didn’t even exist yet! In a very short time, she gained enough experience in the financial analyst realm to follow her dream of living in California and seek opportunities there. Her drive, passion, and fearless risk taking allotted her the opportunity to not only move to the team in which she desired, but help take her career to the next level.

We will miss Megan very much, but no matter what we know she is going to do great things!

If you want to be a part of a culture that really values their employees, has a ton of room for upward mobility and is just overall fun – Spigot, Inc. would love to talk to you!
