An Insider's view of Core Digital Media

What’s the vibe like in the office?

CDM is unique in that it exists in a competitive, fast-paced, ever-changing industry and still maintains its collaborative, nurturing community spirit. People are encouraged to think creatively and take risks; the result is a group of people invested in and energized by the work they do.

Chelsea Fusco

Online Marketing Manager - Team Lead

What does your typical day look like?

As Social Media Manager of WalletJoy, a typical day at work is never quite typical at all! With the startup nature of the brand and the current remote work situation – every day is different. My days are always filled with support from CDM, though. When you feel appreciated, it makes a difference. This company lives out the mantras they preach!

Nicole Musa

Social Marketing Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started as an entry-level Analyst & I am now a Director leading our CRM team. This is due to CDM's investment in my training & professional development. Leadership has always kept my best interests in mind, and has provided me with the tools needed to accomplish my goals. As a result, I have been able to succeed in ways I could not have imagined.

Megan Craven

Director of Marketing (CRM)

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

In Business Analytics, we are constantly tracking and analyzing the company’s performance and impacts of any strategy or business changes. We then summarize our findings into a clear and concise story to show current health of the business and make strategic recommendations. This applies to both day to day and long-term business decisions.

David Peet

Manager of Business Analytics

What projects are you most excited about?

Our continued re-architecting monolithic applications into Microservices. CI/CD is being re-imagined and actively worked upon including expanded Test Automation capabilities. Our front-end continues to get modernized by addition of new UI frameworks. After successful migration to AWS, we continue to explore building more cloud native applications.
