Life as a Racker

We serve over 50% of the Fortune 100 companies & customers in 120 countries around the globe. Our achievements are powered by our people – we call them Rackers.

Our Rackers…

Rackers aren’t alike. We look different. We think uniquely. We are from many places and our beliefs & backgrounds vary. But, being a Racker — a valued member of a winning team on an inspiring mission – is what connects us all. Rackers are encouraged to bring their whole self to work every day, as we know that unique perspectives fuel innovation and enable us to best serve our customers & communities around the globe.

We give back. 26,946 Hours were volunteered by our Rackers globally last year. At the core of every Racker is a drive to leave the world better than they found it and give back to communities. Rackers in the UK can leverage 100 hours of paid volunteer time off for any cause, and our Rack Gives Back programme creates opportunities for Rackers to give their time and talent to others.

We’re learners. 5,181 Certifications are held by Rackers globally. Our internal learning department, Rackspace University®, provides training and development to Rackers – from Microsoft™ certifications to effective leadership training – their goal is to help Rackers grow.

We’re obsessed with customer service. 350+ Fanatical Jackets awarded since inception globally. We also recognise Rackers for their outstanding commitment to our Fanatical Experience™ with the highest award in our company – the Fanatic of the month award.

We include. As well as the characteristics that we actively look for, we want Rackers to come as they are. Cultivating inclusion is not just the right thing to do, it enables us to win. Our Executive Inclusion Council and Racker Resource Groups (RRGs) partner to enable an inclusive workplace and drive initiatives such as Rackspace’s participation in Mental Health Tea & Talks, International Women’s Day and Pride.
