Noelle, one of our awesome senior kitters, talks Kitting:
When you think of Kitting, think of us as being the keebler elves that turn out those delicious cookies, except we turn out fun kits here at Adafruit. Some kitted items consist of kitted bags, while others consist of both packs/boxed kits and component bags. But regardless of what kit an elf, I mean kitter, is assigned, every kitted item requires a great amount of attention to detail. You see, we don’t want our customers getting a chocolate chip cookie, when they want a good ole’ sugar cookie.
So to ensure that, every item is QA’d or looked over, before being put into the store, because that’s how we role. And you see. that’s where I come in. As a senior kitter, I along with our department director, QA each and every pack and kitted item that rolls through kitting. You want those cookies? it’s gotta go through us first. As a team we make sure everything is 100 % before it gets to our customers. Along with QA’ing kits, I also create learn guides (or kinda like a recipe guide) for our kitters and gatherers so that they know what goes in our lovely packs and kits. It’s all in the detail though kids, all in the details.
WE would not be successful without teamwork and supporting one another, and that’s what I love about my job here at Adafruit. How many of us have worked at companies where it’s all about the bottom line? It’s the complete opposite here at Adafruit. Here we have a “be good to each other” culture. We all want to succeed as a company so we all help each other out. That cohesive vision of wanting to be an overall great company turning out great products is what motivates me, and ultimately makes working here that much more enjoyable.
