ServerCentral Turing Group
Hi there! I’m Romina Ortega, People Ops Coordinator at ServerCentral Turing Group (SCTG). We provide colocation, cloud, and disaster recovery services to businesses all over the world. More importantly, we're all nerds who share a passion for IT infrastructure and are in this business because we want to be.
We take pride in cultivating a culture that our staff can be proud of. Our people particularly love our board game nights, flexible work-from-home policy, free colocation (a gamer favorite), fully stocked beer fridge, enough vacation days to impress a European, rewarding sabbatical program, and Casual Fridays all week long.
Some other favorite culture perks include:
1. Birthday celebrations 🎂
Who doesn't love celebrating their birthday? Each month everyone who has a birthday gets to choose what the company shares for lunch. Some of our favorite places include Spicy Porka, Roost, Flacos Tacos, Piece Pizza, and Smoque BBQ.
2. Access to helpful tools 🔧
SCTG is generous about paying for things that you ask for as long as it actually helps you do your job better (a standing desk, specific laptop, portable Wi-Fi for train rides, the hipster coffee beans of your dreams, any type of job training course/ certification, traveling to networking events, artisan donuts, whatever else).
3. Divvy Bike membership 🚲
As true Chicagoans, we love bike-riding down by the lake. That's why all SCTG employees get a 50% discount on their Divvy Bike memberships. People liked this perk so much that a #divvybiketours club was born on our Slack messaging channel for the sole purpose of organizing lunch rides to North Avenue Beach and down Lake Shore Drive.
4. Shuffleboard league 🙌
After having a blast at a company shuffleboard outing, we decided to join the league! Now in its 5th season, we let our competitive side out on regulation-sized courts. Go #WutangFinancial!
5. Company events 🍦
From chili cook-offs and rooftop ice cream, to impromptu trivia nights and monthly happy hours, we take unwinding seriously.
6. Themed conference rooms 👾
Meetings can run long, so we designed a wide selection of themed conference and huddle rooms. Feeling playful? Sit on a toadstool surrounded by Mario and Tetris graphics in our Arcade Room. Need perspective? Head to Outer Space and stare into the Milky Way. Want to get away? Teleport far, far away on the Battlestar Galactica or the Millennium Falcon.
