What drew you to Kipsu in contrast to other companies?

What I love about Kipsu is the company culture and its commitment to its core values. It's truly remarkable how each employee at Kipsu embodies these values and how they inspire new hires to do the same. It speaks volumes to the interview and onboarding process embraced here.

What were some things you noticed about the Kipsu team during your first week?

During my first week, each and every person was more than willing to answer my questions and take time out of their schedule to make me feel welcome. The value of a helping hand throughout my time at Kipsu has been one key to my overall success thus far and I plan on paying it forward as soon as I possibly can.

What challenges are you looking forward to tackling in your work at Kipsu?

I'm looking forward to helping develop new markets as our team grows and expands into uncharted territories. It's refreshing to be surrounded by such a strong team of entrepreneurs who truly believe in what they are selling and share in our overall successes.

What is your favorite Kipsu core value?

My favorite Kipsu core value is "go beyond together." Like "it takes a village," this core value has often guided me through most of my life's most challenging decisions. This was a big selling point for me and what ultimately made me choose Kipsu.

If you could meet any person for a chat over a shared dinner, who would you pick and why?

I would have dinner with my late grandfather, of whom I owe most of my entrepreneurial spirit. I'd like to see him again and talk to him about his inspirations and hear his thoughts on Kipsu. He always had such a creative and relentless perspective in the pursuit of his dreams and always encouraged me to do the same. I'll forever be grateful for that.
