Office Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

On start-ups, some of the biggest challenges we face are creating an idea, properly executing it and helping it continuously evolve. From start to finish, we have to continually improve on the ideas we create and, in the end, we want nothing more than to provide the best version of that idea.


Lead Front End Developer

Cie is a great place to invest in yourself while driving towards a single goal company-wide to innovate and push boundaries.


Senior Marketing Specialist

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

As a venture studio, we join our startup founders in the trenches by providing hands-on help. This also applies to our team members who are entrepreneurs. Cie has launched and raised VC funding for employee-founded startups based on the belief that innovation can come from anywhere.



How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I have had the opportunity to learn and explore many different areas of our client’s business - from digital display campaign management to product launches and recently launching a full-fledged merchandise program.
