As part of the MIT community we have access to fascinating and diverse opportunities across campus including music, theater, cultural associations, athletics, guest speakers, and workshops. Here at MITIMCo we try to carry the creative spirit of MIT into the social environment of the office. At MITIMCo we value constructive debate, continuous improvement, taking initiative, and having fun! Of course, we also offer MIT’s outstanding benefits package.

"Before my time at MITIMCo, I knew essentially nothing about investing, save for what I had learned in my Financial Investments class... Yet at MITIMCo, I was able to learn about investing and various investment strategies in a hands on manner."

My MITIMCo experiences: I appreciate the opportunity to learn from my coworkers. Any day I learn something is a good day and I have had an uninterrupted string of good days since joining in June 2010.

Favorite Cambridge lunch spot: The Kendall Square roof garden in spring and summer.
MITIMCo is located in the heart of Kendall Square, steps away from the Charles River. Kendall Square is a vibrant innovation hub, burgeoning as a result of entrepreneurialism both on- and off-campus. In addition to the constant stream of talent from MIT and other local universities, the area attracts people from around the world to work at leading science and technology companies. Kendall Square is also an exciting spot for startups, with facilities like the Cambridge Innovation Center that provide flexible workspace.
Kendall Square is rapidly becoming a dynamic cultural spot, featuring many highly-rated restaurants and cultural events. There are many activities to explore just outside MITIMCo’s doors throughout the year which include: picking out produce at the weekly farmers market, kayaking on the Charles, ice skating in the Square, and catching films at the cinema. Plus, Boston is just a quick ride away on the T!
MITIMCo’s vaunted Mudhens take the field every spring as part of the MIT Intramural Softball League. The league runs from late May through early August, making it a great opportunity to get outside, enjoy the weather, and bond with coworkers. Everyone is encouraged to participate, regardless of skill and experience.
R + R Committee
MITIMCo’s very own Rewards and Recognition Committee is dedicated to the highly serious task of planning fun social events, group outings, parties, and volunteer events. All of us at MITIMCo value these dedicated moments to socialize, refresh, and celebrate both our professional and personal successes.
Community Giving and Public Service
MIT is committed to giving back, and there are a number of ways through which to do this. One program that MITIMCo regularly participates in is Community Giving at MIT, a campus-wide philanthropic initiative that enables members of the community to give to organizations that support local health and human services.
MIT strongly encourages enhancing professional development through further education. All MITIMCo employees are eligible for MIT’s higher-education tuition assistance programs, counseling, and training. Employees are also able to attend on-campus workshops and lectures.
Several times a year MITIMCo invites members of the MIT community to share their work with us over pizza. These lunches are an ideal chance for us to learn and develop richer understandings of the work that goes on at MIT outside of our office. Past presenters have covered topics that include the financing of biomedical research, new discoveries in online education, the MIT admissions process, pioneering developments in cancer research, and incubating successful businesses.
At MITIMCo we take learning seriously and look for ways to blend this into our daily lives. Our optional monthly Book Club is one way we stay current. The books we read are chosen by attendees and span a range of topics including business, history, psychology, and culture. Recent titles include The Everything Store by Brad Stone, The Second Machine Age by Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee, and Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman! by Richard Feynman.
