In New Hires, Kipsuvians, Life at Kipsu

 

Join us in welcoming Emily Marty to Kipsu as a Customer Success Representative. Prior to Kipsu, Emily worked at a nonprofit assisting individuals entering the job market and with Higher Ed IT before that. Outside of work, you'll find Emily taking advantage of all the perks the Minneapolis area has to offer—museums, concerts, bike riding on trails throughout the city, and playing cribbage with her friends and family at a nearby brewery.  


  

What drew you to Kipsu

in contrast to other companies? 

Intentionality, authenticity, and care behind the work that I do is incredibly important to me, and after learning more about Kipsu's mission and core values, I felt extremely drawn to the company. I am amazed by how thoughtful and transparent the interview process here was, too. All I knew was that I wanted to take part in something greater, where I could grow as a human being personally and professionally, and supported and challenged in all the right ways. Kipsu offered me all of this! 

 

 What were some things you noticed about

the Kipsu team during your first week? 

I immediately noticed how incredibly kind, patient, and understanding the people here are. I've never felt so comfortable reaching out for help and asking all of my questions while starting a new job. It is evident that everyone here is thoughtful, brilliant, and truly cares about the work that they do, which makes collaborating together especially exciting and motivating. 

 

What challenges are you looking

forward to tackling in your work at Kipsu? 

I'm excited to work with my previous tech skills in a new capacity that is unpredictable, fast-paced, and constantly evolving and changing. I know I will never stop learning here and will never stop loving to learn new things, so I truly look forward to whatever challenges come my way. 

 

What is your favorite Kipsu core value?

I love all of them, to be honest, but Go Beyond Together and Think Customer First resonate with me the most. It's astounding how much can get accomplished when we all come together and actively contribute our unique gifts, experiences, and skills. I love Think Customer First as a core value, too; being customer-centered and having empathy can go a long way.

 

 

 If you could meet any person for a chat over a shared dinner,

who would you pick and why?

I would chat over a shared dinner with my maternal grandfather. I never had the opportunity to meet him, and from what I've heard about him, I know we would have a long and lovely chat. Regardless of where the conversation goes, I believe there's always something to learn from others who have lived a very different life from my own.
