Our TeamSense Values

We operate as one team

Everyone on our team has inherent value. We all work towards the same goal and we encourage collaboration to build the future of TeamSense.

We win together, we lose together. We take accountability without placing blame. We consider our employees and our customers to all be part of the same team.

Being a remote team has its challenges, but we navigate them together.

We embrace diversity of thought

We let the most junior person speak first. We acknowledge that we don't know everything and we don't pretend that we do. We set aside time for different departments to cross-collaborate, brainstorm, and build ideas together.

We believe that diversity is more than just a check box. We are committed to building a team with humans who have diverse backgrounds and experiences that make us better. We want everyone to feel welcome on our team and celebrate the breadth of our team across race, gender, age, religion, identity, and life experiences.

We support our local communities

We believe in the importance of making a difference and part of that includes teaming up with our parent company to participate in a Global 'Day of Caring' event.

For 2021, our team chose to support animals. We had volunteers virtually & in-person participating in a variety of ways from making shelter supplies to donating much-needed items and toys.

We also support Ada Developers Academy, a software developer training program for women and gender-expansive folks who also prioritize Black, Latine, Indigenous Americans, Native Hawaiian & Pacific Islander, LGBTQIA+, and low-income people.

Representation in technology is critical to building technology for all people.

We work hard to earn our customers' trust

We have a relentless focus on helping our customers build stronger and more connected teams. We always seek to do the right thing for our customers, and we prioritize ethics over 'winning'.

We get direct feedback from customers, brainstorm ideas with them, and celebrate wins with them. We make sure they feel heard and our product works for them.

We celebrate the growth of our employees

We are committed to a culture of continuous improvement and getting 1% better every day - as individuals, as teams, and as a company.

We develop growth plans with all of our employees and encourage open communication between teams. We have monthly retrospectives where we discuss what's going well, what isn't going well, and what we should change. We encourage time off and rest. Our leadership advocates passionately for our team.

Meet the Team

Sheila Stafford

CEO

When not cranking away at TeamSense, she can be found hiding in the bushes tangled in a fierce game of laser tag with her two sons, and their band of mini-comrades.

Jeremy Wadsack

CTO

In the other half of his life he's constructing LEGO creations with his son, building things with wood, helping underrepresented students learn to code, or getting out into the wilds of the Pacific Northwest.

Alison Teegarden

COO

Coffee addict, nerd 🤓 , and aspiring Jedi Master. Outside of TeamSense, you might find Alison hiking with her husband, lost in a fantasy book, or hanging and serving with friends from church.

Zara Aslam

Software Engineer

When away from the computer, you’ll often find her binging the latest on Netflix or playing endless games of Sudoku.

Josh Nicks

Software Engineer Manager

When he's not working, you can find Josh enjoying the great outdoors with his dog Ember, cooking, or making music with his family.

Nadine Dias

Marketing Project Manager

Most likely post-it-ing up a book, asking her cats why they are yelling, or out exploring the city of Chicago with her pitbull Frida.

Stef

Software Engineer

A riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.

Paul Terhaar

Software Engineer

When he’s not working or driving his kids to things, you can probably find Paul trimming shrubs or feeding his koi — neither of which he intended to become a hobby, but here we are.

Shannon Lambert

Executive Assistant

Away from TeamSense you'll find her busy coordinating all the chaos that comes with being a mom of two preschoolers and a teen. When she's not "moming" she's hanging out with her hubby or her Kindle.

Josh Moon

Customer Support Engineer

When not working, he's usually spending time watching too much TV with his wife and dog. Friday nights, however, you can find him being the Dungeon Master for his friends' D&D campaign.

Mike Capozzi

Software Engineer

Seeker of Knowledge. Father of Younglings. When he is not creating video games, he is playing them. Or at the very least, pretending he has time to! Mike also enjoys taking his wife to the movies when the stars align and a babysitter is available.

Andrew Mallonee

Software Engineer

Buyer of LEGOs (yeah buyer, not much building, who has time for that!?). Love spending time with the family going camping, playing board games, or just hanging out. My hobbies generally change like the seasons, I am a lifelong learner and maker of things.

Michael Gunderson

Software Engineer

Father. Gamer. Scary movie enthusiast. Maker. Human potato analog. QA turned dev who just loves to learn new technology. If I'm not programming, I'm usually chilling with my daughters or working CAD and 3D printing.

Vern Briggs

Software Engineer

Designer turned developer spending most of his hobby time rebuilding and refinishing guitars while learning the ins and outs of audio recording.

James Marah

Customer Support Engineer

Just a cool guy that likes to do good. I like to keep my mind and body active playing sports & board games, like Backgammon. Yep, Backgammon.

Towfie Fanous

Software Engineer

When he's not working, you can find him playing video games, binge-watching a season of survival, or walking his puppy Juniper at the park. He also likes to spend time working on his DYI projects around the house.

Katie Ernesto

Product Designer

When she's not designing, Katie enjoys spending time with her husband and their three cats, as well as enjoying creative hobbies such as drawing, painting, writing, and making pottery.

Madeline Lisenbee

Product Manager

Most likely to be found in the kitchen listening to a nerdy podcast while trying to concoct the perfect macaron. If not, in the basement reading, writing, or playing games (both video and tabletop) is the next best bet.

Sarah Majors

Software Engineer

Archaeologist turned engineer. When not at the computer she is probably crafting (knitting, quilting, glasswork, anything), reading or playing with her two crazy dogs, Holden and Camina.
