Business type: Contactually
If you hadn’t already figured it out, we’re Contactually – a software and service company based in downtown Washington, DC. Founded in 2011, we’ve grown rapidly in just a couple of years with an amazing, dynamic team. We love strong coffee, the latest technology, strange internet memes, and accomplishing great things through better, stronger relationships. Contactually is different. We noticed that business software is often something people are forced to use, not enjoy using. We knew that needed to change. We didn’t design our product to fit into an existing mold, we designed it to help people with their work. In order to do that we created a place we would actually want to work and allowed us to do what we’re good at and share it with others. The end result is the Contactually you see today; a growing, learning organism that’s constantly seeking to be better — for our customers, our product, our team, and our investors. Leadership Say hello to the humans who put their very being into Contactually each and every day. From the first cup of coffee, to the last game of cornhole, we’re always thinking about how to build a better product for you, and a better company for us. Zvi Band founded Contactually back in 2011. An engineer and a CEO, he also actively fosters a strong DC Tech Community and created Proudly Made in DC to continue the support of the greater community. Tony Cappaert co-founded Contactually and now leads up all customer-facing efforts as COO. He’s an ex-Microsoft PM, an MIT alum, karaoke star, and lover of all things outdoors and fermented. People Ask a few employees, and you’ll quickly find out if the people who make our business go feel like what they’re doing is important, whether their ideas matter or not, or if everyone is simply focused on making as much money as possible, as quickly as possible... If you’re looking for a great place to work, we just might be that place. We’ve got a great open, collaborative office space in downtown Washington DC, and an enviable combination of awesome people, delicious snacks, and strong coffee just waiting for you. Culture Contactually’s work culture is hard to beat – a supportive environment, with above-market pay, flexible work policy, unlimited vacation, and many career-development avenues. Employees are welcome to work in the style that makes them the most comfortable and productive. We host quarterly X-days, where everyone at Contactually puts aside their day-to-day work and tries to solve, build, and innovate. Every year we go on our Annual Retreat, where we get out of the city and spend a few days solving big-picture problems, getting to know each other better, and staying up too late. We host regular meet-ups in our office space and work hard to foster the DC tech community around us. Values are central to who we are. That means we decide what to do – both strategically and on a day-to-day basis – by focusing on a pretty thorough list of principles. Our core values keep us on the right track, and working on the right things each and every day.. Community We believe a strong community helps build better businesses and that’s why Team Contactually works within the community regularly on charitable partnerships. We host a service day, where we split up into teams tasked with helping local DC charities, and we work with the Human Rescue Alliance of DC where team members walk and socialize shelter dogs up for adoption. In 2014 we sent several Contactually team members to Haiti with Roots of Development to help communities use relationship management skills to improve the wellbeing of themselves and their neighbors.
