As we gather around our metaphorical candlelit table of creativity, we can’t help but reminisce about the moments that stole our hearts.

So, as we exchange heartfelt sentiments and thoughtful gestures with our loved ones, let’s not forget to extend that same love and appreciation to the thing that brings us together — our jobs. For in the realm of careers, there’s no greater joy than finding fulfillment, purpose, and a sense of belonging in what we do.

Join us as we raise a toast to the love affair that knows no bounds — the love we have for our jobs. Here’s to a Valentine’s Day filled with gratitude, dedication, and an unwavering commitment to nurturing the flame of our professional passion.

What we love about MATC

What I love about working specifically for MATC is the mutual respect and care among everyone in the company. I’m on a first-name basis with everyone I talk to, whether it’s my fellow Instructional Designers or the Vice Presidents. I love working for a company that genuinely cares for me, and that recognizes and values me as an individual. I’ve never felt so safe and respected as an employee before MATC. —Ed

Working at MATC Group has been one of my favorite jobs as an ID. Everyone feels like my best friend on the team and I never feel like I’m alone in what I’m doing, especially when I’m stuck on something. Someone, whether another ID, a tech writer, or a PM — someone is always a video call away to help. I love the variety of work and I love that regardless of the project I’m working on, I’m learning how to do something new, or how to think about things from multiple perspectives. —Liz L

At MATC, I enjoy working on a huge variety of project types, for all manner of clients. Courses, instructor-led training materials, SOPs, guides, spreadsheets…the list is endless! —Lexy

I love working for MATC because I have been able to grow and learn so much from my team members and managers without judgment. —Quanda

I love working at MATC because it gives me the opportunity to experience and learn a vast variety of different subjects and become something close to a subject matter expert by the time these projects conclude. It’s also invaluable to work with so many different Instructional Designers who all bring a unique perspective to the table. I can’t imagine how I would continue to grow without these two factors that are so deeply integrated into my day-to-day operations. —Chad

My favorite thing about working for MATC is that every project allows me to learn about a new topic/industry. No project is the same which makes every day interesting, doing something different. —John

What I love about MATC is our amazing team! It is pretty cool to work with colleagues who live in so many different parts of the country and bring their own unique skills and perspective to what we do.

Throughout my career with MATC, I’ve had the pleasure of working in diverse industries, including administrative & product management, biotech, pharmaceuticals, and mechanical, electrical, and automation engineering. It has been a joy to be a part of every step of the product development process, from brainstorming to launch day. Visiting a client’s site and meeting with various departments allowed me to gather all the necessary information to create stellar product materials for different end users. I’m grateful for this unforgettable experience that has made me even more passionate about my work. —Keya

One of the things I love about our industry is our ability to help our clients find solutions to their talent and development needs. Whether it’s creating something fresh and new, to reviewing and enhancing what they already have — I love that we are able to work with so many clients across industries and make a difference. —Liz L

I enjoy working on single source-authoring and publishing solutions for clients using MadCap Flare and teaching them how to efficiently reuse content from a centralized, topic-based authoring environment. Implementing this type of documentation authoring and publishing solution can be transformational for an organization when it comes to documentation management for separate products and services, and different departments within an organization. —Tim

I love that, with each new project, I learn something about a topic that I might never have given much thought to and, along the way, I have met some of the most interesting people I might never have met otherwise. —Terry P
