What our Team Members
“Want a company culture that truly walks the walk? Fire Engine RED is it. Not only is there a healthy work-life balance, but the diversity of colleagues (personally, professionally, and cognitively) results in high-performing teams, increased engagement, top talent, and optimum decision-making. Fire Engine RED is truly harnessing the power of diversity one hire at a time.”
“Fire Engine RED’s values, in my opinion, are unparalleled. I’ve never experienced a more caring and supportive group of co-workers in my career. Team members truly care about each other and that includes people’s lives outside of work. They want to make the work environment – and the world – a better place. They also want to learn more about each unique individual at the company. Fire Engine RED is full of fascinating and diverse backgrounds and it’s a company that truly cares.”
“Fire Engine RED truly believes in work/life balance. This is the first time in my very long career that I’m not stressed about needing to take time off for whatever reason. I also can end my day at the appropriate time and not be expected to be on call or available. The end of the work day is just that. I’m thankful every day for the team I work with.”
“Everyone is invested in the success of each other and our clients. One of the values that I respect the most is how the company strives to always be learning. Fire Engine RED embraces its employees from all walks of life and wants to listen to and learn about people’s backgrounds, cultures, identities, and more. “
“The company provides a safe and supportive space for all. I can honestly say I feel seen, heard, and supported. My colleagues are like a second family. I’m grateful to be part of such an amazing company.”
“Fire Engine RED does not just say we support diversity, we actively seek to make this a part of who we are. I have learned more about all walks of life from my team member’s stories and the educational activities Fire Engine RED contributes to than I did throughout all my official schooling. Anyone with an accepting and open mind will love it here at Fire Engine RED”
“Phenomenal company to work for if you’re looking for a remote company that prioritizes work/life balance.”
“Fire Engine RED is committed to its people. The company culture respects the humanity of the team and tries to ensure that all company decisions are balanced against our needs, desires, wellness, and priorities. In addition, Fire Engine RED encourages us to explore and share our unique experiences and to embrace the diversity that our fellow teammates bring to the company.”
