Empowerment + Purpose
The winning equation to transform the way the world consumes energy and turn the tide on climate change.
Soundarya was looking for work tackling the impact of pollution on the planet. She found that at Turntide. But not only that! She also found a company intent on fostering a great culture, and a team that not only had smarts, but kindness and humility too.
Gustavo was excited to find a place to work where he gets to learn, create, and apply his knowledge and ideas and where people get to be themselves.
An OG Tideturner, Levi was drawn to Turntide’s technology and the chance to work on something with such huge potential to impact the world.
This risk-averse engineer first implemented Turntide’s Smart Motor System at one of his facilities, then decided to join the team!
A lot of companies talk culture but don’t live it. That isn’t how it works here. Turntide is the kind of workplace where you can take on big objectives, knowing there will be a team supporting you.
Maya shares what she sees as the X factor for Turntide’s success.
A company is made of people, evolving, with all the benefits and design flaws that come with being human. We hold each other to a high bar, and recognize our authentic human traits that make us who we are; our abilities, our strengths, our challenges. Compassion and relationship building are key to this, strengthening social connections that enable people to fully engage and push in a sustainable way.
- The more trust we build, the faster we can move.
- With our customers’ trust, we can deliver value to them faster and minimize validation steps.
- With our colleagues’ trust, we can work more seamlessly together.
- With our partners’ trust, we can deliver faster with higher quality.
- The opposite of trust is fear. Remove reasons for fear and trust will fill the void.
Value is created by teams, with each individual playing an important and interdependent role. Teamwork requires coordination enabled by fluid, concise sharing of information. We act candidly and consistently with our inner truths. Being open with information and ideas facilitates the “How” we help each other. We know “What” problems we are solving by using concise language.
We live in reality and need to always be seeking the truth as our foundation. To do new things with confidence, we need to distill the most fundamental truths and reason up from there. Looking to what others have done or what worked in the past can be helpful for inspiration, but our only reliable bedrock is drilling down to the first principles.
We are not just seizing a temporary opportunity or aiming to beat competitors. It is fundamental that we create value in the world in a long term, sustainable way. We build and optimize for long-term mutual benefit with all our stakeholders.
