What drew you to Kipsu in contrast to other companies?

What made me so excited about the opportunity to join the Kipsu team was the overall positive feeling  I got from Kipsu from the moment I spoke to someone on the phone, through the entire interview process. Everyone was so welcoming, and I immediately could tell that the people working here really care, and also really enjoy it here.

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

As I mentioned, everyone, and I mean EVERYONE is so welcoming here. I’ve honestly never felt so welcome in any environment, professional or not, as I have during my first week at Kipsu.

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

I’m looking forward to learning the in’s and out’s of the company and how to best serve our customers. I’m also excited to contribute to a growing company - and to flex my right brain muscles with any opportunities that allow me to do so.

What is your favorite Kipsu core value?

Play the long game. This is one value of the company that really fascinates me - especially in a society where most seek immediate results and gratification. Taking the small, wise steps to create truly trusting, long lasting relationships is not easy, but it’s a rewarding path.

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

(RIP) Anthony Bourdain. I can’t think of someone who had a more unique perspective on the world than Mr. Bourdain. My dream date with Tony would probably be having a few pints at a pub, followed by heading to get some street food, maybe a hot dog (or as he likes to call them, meat in tube form).
