    An Insider's view of Cameo

    What's something quirky about your company?

    As we adjust to working as a fully distributed company, Cameo has made a concerted effort to ensure we get a taste of the office culture we all grew to love pre COVID-19. For example, our recent all-hands meeting began with a private concert and Q&A with Kenny G. and ended with each employee, one-by-one, sharing their favorite Thanksgiving dish.


    Talent Associate, Talent Relations

    How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

    Everyday I collaborate with at least four other teams at Cameo whether it's legal, customer service, product, our talent team, you name it as we all work towards our common goal of making Cameo the best product in the world.


    Product Operations Manager

    How has your career grown since starting at the company?

    As a people-first company, Cameo allows for unparalleled career trajectory and opportunity. Coming to Cameo newly out of college, I started with an entry-level role and after proving myself through results, leadership, and performance, am now the leader of a newly-created team and a big stakeholder in the company.


    Director of Brand Partnerships

    What are some social events your company does?

    Culture at Cameo, and social events in particular, continue to be a top priority for the People Team. In the past three months alone, Cameo Social Events have included a Halloween Painting Seminar, a Thanksgiving Cooking Class, and a Cameo T-Shirt Design Contest in addition to multiple Happy Hours, Lightning Talks, Fireside Chats & Talent-Led Q&A.
