Koda is Coconut’s Director of Greeting. He joined our team in 2019, and while he had very little previous experience, it was clear from day one that he was the right fit for the job. Koda has been breaking down barriers with his tremendous aptitude for sitting and rolling over for treats, as well as his unique ability to sniff out good ideas (and lunch kits). He’s also in charge of napping, walks, and checking in on people with regular laps around the office.
What do you love about working at Coconut?
While the treats, belly rubs, and attention are top notch, it’s the people that really get me. There’s just so many of them! I could go from desk, to desk, to desk, sniffing, interrupting, getting scratched behind the ears, and biting shoes for hours.
Why should potential candidates consider joining the Coconut team?
I was just a young pup when I joined the Coconut team – but they believed in me. With a little guidance from my teammates, I’ve been making leaps and bounds in my job performance and skills – and I’m not the only one that they’ve helped walk the path to success. They’ve really created a pawsitive environment by hiring the right people, and helping them grow into the shoes they’ll be filling (or chewing). Whether you’re rolling through work or having a ruff day, your team has your back.
How do you enjoy spending your time when you're not at work?
The dog park. I’m a huge fan of running, jumping, chasing, and sniffing. I like to burn off some energy when I can – but that doesn’t mean I don’t know how to relax. In my down time, I enjoy eating and watching Netflix.
