We Live Our Values

TerraSense was started to build something that would make a difference. A difference in the world for the people impacted by our technology, the people using our technology, and our employees.


We’ve set up a company culture that is very open, transparent and gives employees a say in the company. That open transparency is in all our business components: salaries, job positions, and benefits. We wanted to really empower everyone working for the company and, along with that, feel that our culture basically vibrated through everything. We were not just saying it to be a quote in an unread HR manual; we are a company that is actually enacting this culture.


The work that we do is very serious, as are the consequences, but we do want to have people to come here who love coming to work, and love coming to work with each other, and that it is a fun place to be, where we have built something that is making a difference in the world.

I look forward to meeting those who join our team and help contribute to our ever evolving culture.

Our Culture

What we want to grow and create is a place where people are driven to work on their projects and not just busy-work. Where candid conversations can happen with anyone on the team. Where people are actually excited to wake up during the workweek and aren't just counting down to the weekend. 

Where perks and benefits aren’t just a marketing pitch to get you in the door. A company and people that trust you to manage yourself and your own work schedule. Where life comes first if someone needs a run to clear their head or to head out to an appointment. 

We actually care for what you do personally. If you’re working towards a 5k run, tell us, we want to support you in your personal goals and help you succeed there
