Spotlight on Gravity’s Columbus Office & Team

From enabling employees to benefit from in-office mentorship to fostering work-life balance with hybrid work schedules, Gravity’s office culture aims to create a balance both personally and professionally for team members in Columbus and at all of our Gravity office locations.

Columbus’s Managing Partner & Team

Columbus, Ohio, September 6, 2023 – This month we’re shining the spotlight on our Columbus, Ohio office!

Led by Managing Partner Keith Miner, our Columbus location recently moved into a brand new space as the office celebrated its 3rd anniversary this August. Each of Gravity’s offices is unique and although you will see similarities, we strive to choose locations that will benefit our employees and enable their involvement in their local communities.

Keith has lived in Columbus since 1997 when he moved there right out of college for work. Over the years, he’s grown to love Columbus for its vibrant and inclusive community, diverse economy, and great schools for his family.

When asked about his leadership style, Keith shared that he celebrates employee wins both in the moment during stand-up meetings and through company-wide GroupMe messages. He also encourages his team to give back by volunteering with local organizations that provide tech education and job skills. During the holidays, the Columbus office runs food and donation drives and adopts families in need.

Keith strives to seize every opportunity to support each team member’s career development by including them in client calls and client meetings so that they can learn and ask questions. A Gravity practice is to promote from within, so many Gravity employees will train not only for their current job but for the next step in their Gravity careers.  “After my first conversation with Rick, Steve and Keith, I knew Gravity was the place for me. Gravity provides you with endless personal and professional growth. Having the growth opportunities and working for such dedicated leaders made my decision easy”, shared Kyler Damn, who started his career with Gravity in Columbus in January 2022 as a Technical Recruiter and was promoted to Account Manager in November 2022.

Connectivity is a core value at Gravity IT, and Keith fosters this by having his team engage with the Columbus community through volunteering, fundraising, and supporting local charities and scholarships. He also encourages engaging as a team outside of the office and exploring the local community.
