An Insider's view of Kinship

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Kinship is founded on the key value of caring, and to experience that it actually extends beyond pets, to its associates as well, has been life-changing. I feel lucky to be part of a team that has respect for each other in its core and takes very seriously the culture of freedom for real life.

What does your typical day look like?

It's cliché but I love that there isn't a typical day! Since I joined, we've started three businesses, opened new offices, launched myriad new products, and hired tons of incredible people. As General Counsel, I get to interact with all our departments, advise and support our businesses, and learn from so many talented, creative folks everyday!

My manager encourages me to explore new interests and expand my strengths. I'm engaging with external vendors in new ways and collaborating with teams like never before.

As a recruiter, collaboration is key to Kinship’s continued growth both in culture and talent. I constantly engage with hiring managers, stakeholders, and other recruiters to help fill roles.
