Company Culture

Markentum is a company that respects your family. Kids may pop into meetings, you may sleep in because the baby was up all night. You may need extra time off to take kids to appointments or because your aging parents need extra support. This is expected.

We love to work with our long-term care partners so that they can serve their residents and help them live fulfilled lives in their later years. You’ll be part of a team that helps these long-term care facilities serve their clients well by having a site that works well.

It’s also expected that you spend work time on your own education to help you be better at your job. We can provide subscriptions to Linkedin Learning, Code Academy, or even a University Course if that’s what we need to do to help you be excellent at your job.

Your manager will help you build an individual growth plan and enable you to execute on it so that you become better at your job and have autonomy in doing it.

We also have a monthly book club, virtual meetup, and some people even craft on Zoom together. Yup this is considered work time and you can participate in the craft or book club…or not based on what suits you.
