Imagine walls painted bright green and burnt orange; a long row of salty delicious snacks lined up in the kitchen; the constant aroma of coffee drifting across the room and Throwback Thursday ‘90s music playing quietly from Spotify. That’s me setting the scene of the Track5Media office space. Let’s talk more about the snacks. We don’t just get free coffee and breakfast bars – we have small bags of Lays chips, Goldfish, Doritos, breakfast sandwiches, and every once in a while, unique treats. This month it’s Mochi ice cream. Who knew Japanese ice cream could trigger such endless conversation in a typically quiet, focused group of workers? It’s so good. It’s too cold on my teeth. What’s the chewy covering on the outside? Our curiosity about Mochi is probably equivalent to your questions about our Lancaster tech company – what are they creating in there? What do they do exactly? Are they a media company? Luckily for you, I’m here to tell you the top five things you didn’t know about Track5Media but always wondered.
Top Five Things You Didn’t Know About Track5Media
Here are the five things you didn’t know about Track5Media, from what we do to where the company’s name came from!
1. We build lead generation websites and market our own brands
I think there’s some confusion about what exactly Track5Media does. Despite the name of the company, we are not a media company. We are also not a marketing agency. We are, in fact, a technology company that builds lead generation websites. In simpler terms, we build job board websites for niche markets. For example, TravelNuseSource.com is a job board that nurses can use to find available jobs that are posted to the site by our clients (healthcare agencies). Although we are heavy in marketing, we are marketing our own brands and do not sell our marketing services. All of our in-house marketing is focused on making our websites stronger to benefit our clients. Our goal is to drive traffic to our websites so that we can help hiring agencies to find solid leads.
2. We have two locations… and they’re both awesome for different reasons
Track5Media is a Lancaster tech company, and our headquarters remain on the west side of Lancaster City. However, this summer we opened a second location in St. Petersburg, Florida. Both locations are awesome for several reasons. Lancaster is great because that’s where the awesomeness all began. Most of our employees are still in Lancaster, and the location is surrounded by beautiful parks, eclectic restaurants, and the unique and culture of Lancaster County. If you enjoy hiking, nature, small cities, and a more laid-back atmosphere, Lancaster’s the place to be. The St. Petersburg location, on the other hand, is awesome because it’s close to the beaches, and the backbone of our team (all of our developers) work there! We literally couldn’t exist without our Florida co-workers. If you’re drawn to pristine waters, sandy beaches and a lively nightlife – check out St. Pete!
3. Track5Media employees are spoiled… and we know it
To work for Track5Media is to be spoiled. And I don’t mean because they pay us to work there. I hope your company does too! What I mean is, as well as the snacks, we get several team outings throughout the year, such as trips to Hershey Park and happy hours. We have pizza parties. Some of us even get to travel for work, like our annual trip to Dallas, TX. Our CEO does annual reviews with each of us, which includes a lunch date with him. We also have exceptional benefits, like health insurance covered by the company! Yes, you read the right. I told you we are spoiled.
4. We win awards and cool stuff like that
Did you know that Track5Media is on the Inc. 5000 list for 2018? That’s right! We are not only one of the fastest-growing Lancaster tech companies, but we are one of the fastest in the nation!
5. The name Track5Media has no fun story behind it…
All this bragging about how great we are – I’d like to tell you that there’s this really cool, deep, meaningful story behind the name Track5Media. There’s not. The company’s founder, Oliver Feakins, just thought it sounded cool and decided to name his company that.
