An Insider's view of ktMINE

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We are smaller, and as mentioned before, we are like family, so corporate-like politics is non-existent. If help is needed, we chip in, regardless of title, level, or experience. Each person and each department has a different personality making room for all. People want to do their best.


Market Lead of IP Strategy & Valuation

What does your typical day look like?

Working with the Marketing team to execute both short and long term strategies - while cross collaborating with ktMINE teams for internal and external marketing initiatives.


Marketing Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

Two things make successful team members: a willingness to assist teams outside our own and creative problem solvers. We tackle a ton of challenging problems that require creative solutions from a variety of people beyond the project owner, and anyone that can get creative and assist on tasks outside their job description moves our company forward.


Data Operations Manager

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

The team is the company of which I am a member as well. Every team member has a direct impact on the company’s direction through their own unique experiences and insights they bring in every day, that’s what keeps us moving forward.


Chief Executive Officer

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The reason I joined ktMINE at this stage in my career was that the culture does not bind one to one's title and job description but encourages collaboration for the greater outcome and serves the clients based on their needs, not ours.
