An Insider's view of Cie

What are some social events your company does?

We love our social events at Cie, and I love planning them! We enjoy catered lunches together every Monday, bi-weekly catered breakfast on Fridays, and birthday lunches and dessert once a month! And when we’re not working hard in the office, we like to rock climb, go-kart race, go on scavenger hunts and let’s not forget outrigger racing!

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.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Cie has allowed me to take the next step in my career. I started in a junior position and Cie provided me with industry specific exposure that is both challenging and rewarding, allowing me to grow into a managerial position. Cie is a great place to invest in yourself while driving towards a single goal company-wide to innovate and push boundaries.
