Why Syracuse

Since day one, Terakeet has called Armory Square home.

A thriving downtown and aspiring tech hub features unique restaurants, bars and eclectic shops available to you from Monday lunch break to Friday happy hour.

Dynamic Community – No Matter the Season

Between the New York State Fair, the Taste of Syracuse festival and the beaches, lakes, hiking trails and skiing opportunities surrounding the city, Syracuse offers plenty of entertainment all year round.

Family-Friendly Location

The economical cost of living, nationally ranked high schools and easy access to the suburbs make Syracuse the picture-perfect place to call home.

Our diverse community lets you enjoy the best of city living with a small-town feel in Syracuse.

Passionate Local Fanbases

Syracuse plays host to great sports teams, and Terakeet’s sports fans enjoy Syracuse University’s national athletics programs, Mets AAA baseball and Crunch AAA hockey.

The Perfect Size

New York City and Boston are great, but living there, you can get lost. Syracuse is sample size. It’s a city with everything in close proximity – from underground music and art to great food, all within walking distance. And you feel like a significant part of the community.

That’s what I love about Syracuse. It’s where I feel most at home.

Abigail Welles, Digital Content Specialist

The Perfect Balance

Syracuse is a hidden gem — we have great local farmers, so you can eat fresh all the time. You can go to the farmers’ market and buy local produce. You can support local breweries. You can have that urban setting in the downtown area, and then you can go 10 minutes east to hike in Green Lakes or 45 minutes to Ithaca Falls. You’re not confined to the city as you would be in bigger metro areas, and for me, that is a perfect balance.

Brian Quoss, Design Director

The Perfect Distance

Syracuse lies only four hours from Boston, NYC, Toronto and Philadelphia for short weekend trips or vacations.

"When we initially started working from home, I loved ordering coffee from my favorite cafes to support local businesses and get that same coffee-break feeling like I would in the office. Since businesses have started to reopen, it's been great to stop in to my favorite locations for an afternoon pick me up!"
Instagram post 18024653524280698 Racheal Morrow (Digital Outreach Specialist) has been keeping her creative skills strong outside of her work at Terakeet by pursuing her passion for photography and videography through her business, The Bixby Collective (@thebixbyco). Here's what Racheal had to say about how her creative work has shaped her experience at Terakeet. #WeAreTerakeet 💚⠀
"My hobby helps to shape life as a 'Keeter by reminding me to look at things differently and to step back to take a look at the bigger picture. Having a hobby or skill to practice outside of work is also kind of like a form of meditation or therapy– it helps to clear your mind and get you motivated for the workday!"

"My band life and my Terakeet life actually require some of the same skills. Effective communication between co-workers, connecting on a set of shared goals, ensuring everyone's voice is heard, and dealing with drunk people who try to steal the microphone -oh wait that one's just band life. If these ideals weren't being upheld in my band, I'd probably quit. Fortunately, I never have to worry about that at Terakeet!"⁣
