An Insider's view of Maven Wave

What are some social events your company does?

Each month, we host a company-wide event sponsored by a member of the leadership team. Recent "First Friday" events include a shuffleboard tournament, Kentucky Oaks themed social, workshop at The Second City, and Roaring 20s holiday party. These events provide time outside of the office for employees to get to know each other.

Kaira

Brand Strategist

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Understanding client objectives and steering the direction of the team to meet those objectives. It is important to balance the details and nitty-gritty aspects of a project with the big picture and understanding of how we are serving the desired business outcome. I am responsible for keeping an eye on what has to happen next.

Scott

What makes someone successful on your team?

A skill or quality that is critical to possess in my role on the operations team is curiosity. I am always asking why? Why do we have a certain process in place? How can we improve them or create efficiencies?

Danielle

Senior Sales Operations Specialist

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Energetic. The people at Maven Wave have an energy about them that comes from enjoying the work we do and the people we work with - it can’t be replicated elsewhere and makes MW a unique place to work or do business.
