A while back we asked Xoomworks Technology employees what they thought were the attributes that made a ‘Xoomie’.
The term ‘Xoomie’ has been circling internally for quite some time, but for community friends and prospective new recruits, we hope it makes for an interesting insight.
Keywords: Delivery focused, can do attitude, youthful enthusiasm, community spirited, continuously improve, inquisitive, proactive, leaders in the areas of expertise, creative, passionate, friendly, personable, flexible, fun, interesting, talented, professional, knowledgeable, build strong people relationships, wide industry experience, willing to go the extra mile to help.
The following was a beautiful one-liner delivered from one of the consultant-fold Andy Hart while celebrating with Xoomworks Managed Services Team.
“A Xoomie: A talented, personable, inquisitive individual that has a “go-getter” spirit for client delivery coupled with a great sense of fun and youthful enthusiasm for life as well as a deep sense of Xoomworks community spirit.”
And the following are short impressions from some of the most awe-inspiring Xoomies we have with us.
“Working at Xoomworks is like the film-set of Friends but with more Green Tea than coffee.
