Our second installment of 'Inside the Portfolio' takes a look at Kiip’s unique company culture and how they’ve fostered a strong community of employees since being founded 6 years ago.
Kiip is redefining how brands connect with consumers through a rewards platform that targets "achievement moments" in mobile apps. Whether that means logging a run into a fitness app and receiving a free energy drink, or beating a new level on a mobile game and getting offered a coupon code, this approach to mobile marketing creates meaningful engagements driven by positive emotion between users, developers and advertisers.
Kiiping an authentic environment
The company boasts over 50 employees across their San Francisco headquarters and sales offices in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. They advocate a collaborative environment of “Kiipers” and empower everyone to be on the hyper-growth path for career development. Interns have risen to managers, directors and even executives. This is due to everyone’s willingness to educate, learn from one another, and take on responsibilities beyond their title or project focus. Because Kiipers wear multiple hats, they are able to define their legacy at Kiip by contributing unique ideas to the company’s product roadmap, all while feeling appreciated along the way. A core value at the Kiip offices? "Live up to the faith other Kiipers have in you."
Powering moments that matter
Kiip takes pride in applying their moment-based philosophy to their company culture and facilitates several team bonding activities and memorable events. The summer calls for an all office meeting at the San Francisco headquarters with a day trip to build camaraderie (this year the team headed to Sonoma for wine tasting). Kiip is also known for their active presence at SXSW and previous celebrity guests include MC Hammer and T-Pain. A thriving culture is only possible when there is quality time for employees to bond and truly live in the moment.
Kiip also provides employees with great perks and benefits: health insurance 100% covered, 401K, unlimited vacation, free lunches five days a week, expensed phone bills, a dog-friendly office, the option to work remotely and every Kiiper's birthday is celebrated with champagne, cake — or both!
