OUR TEAM

Terra’s people are the company’s most valued asset.

GREAT COMPANY CULTURE ISN’T ROCKET SCIENCE

BUT IT’S JUST AS IMPORTANT

We’re proud of the inclusive and collaborative culture we’ve created at Terra –especially since we’re a virtual company. Whether it’s via phone, Slack, or email, Terra teammates are encouraged to share their ideas and creative spark both with clients and with one another. Psst! See what we mean when you check out our GALA Film Festival videos.

And what happens when you’ve got an awesome company culture? A 95% employee retention rate is what happens. How do we manage that? While being passionate about our work is key, we think it’s even more important that every Terra teammate is valued for her unique talents and perspective. Because when brilliant people feel valued and heard, they tend to stick around.
