Join us in welcoming Hunter Mickelson to Kipsu as a Market Development Representative! Prior to Kipsu, Hunter served as a career coach for high school students, teaching them to obtain and retain meaningful employment. Outside of work, you'll find Hunter playing and watching football and basketball; cooking new recipes with his mother; and spending quality time with friends and family.
What drew you to Kipsu in contrast to other companies?
I was drawn to Kipsu because of their culture and the competitive industry. I also like that I'm encouraged to contribute in areas of the company that aren't necessarily part of my job description.
What were some things you noticed about the Kipsu team during your first week?
I noticed that people here are happy to help. And that I'm working alongside people with a wide variety of work and life experiences.
What challenges are you looking forward to tackling in your work at Kipsu?
First and foremost, I'm excited to learn and find success as a Market Development Representative. Once I master that, I'm looking forward to stepping out of my lane to help with projects on other teams and identifying other areas where I can contribute.
What is your favorite Kipsu core value?
"Never be satisfied" is my favorite Kipsu core value. It sends the message that we're seeking to improve in every way possible and won't settle.
If you could meet any person for a chat over a shared dinner, who would you pick and why?
I would like to share dinner and conversation with Steve Irwin. He is such an animated and passionate person—I think I could learn a lot from him and apply some of his philosophy to my life.
