Chobani, makers of America’s number one Greek yogurt, engaged our friends at Big Spaceship to develop an employee platform that would give their workforce a way to share information and improve company-wide communications, plus give them access to materials they could use to manage their career growth. Big Spaceship enlisted us to design and develop the back end architecture, advise on server configuration, and provide tech support.

Called ‘Chobani Home,’ the custom platform had a responsive design to accommodate content and UI for tablet and mobile devices that can be accessed from anywhere, while still featuring strong data security, internal IT integration, and personalization abilities. Chobani further engaged the Big Spaceship and Williams Forrest team to add an ‘Employee Recognition’ feature, which would allow the market leader’s workforce to nominate fellow employees for outstanding work using a single web form, integrated with a third-party partner.
