Behind the Glasses – Emilyann

Each month, we’ll interview one of our fab employees here at Whereoware. For November, we get to know Emilyann Key, our Digital Marketing Associate, a little better.

WHO:

What’s your name? Emilyann Key

Job title: Digital Marketing Associate

Background

Favorite food: Sweet potatoes! Everything Bubba Gump can do to shrimp, I can do (read: attempt) with sweet potatoes.

Hidden talents: I do some pretty solid impressions (usually of SNL characters) and fun accents. The New York Times once posited, “She sounds a lot like what’s-her-face.”

If there were a movie of my life, I’d be played by: Tina Fey, but I’d likely be asked to leave the set for asking her too many questions during filming (ironic considering she’s playing me).

My earliest memory: A Norman Rockwell-like still of my view from the ground, when I fell while roller-skating around the house in a Disney princess dress.

What’s the best part about working at Whereoware?

There’s something insanely cool about working with people who are genuinely interesting, brilliant, and passionate. We can work crazy hard together, learn from each other, and laugh the whole time. This energy fuels our creativity and commitment to quality work.

The culture at Whereoware thrives on challenge. We’re all about seizing opportunity, taking initiative, and innovating, but unlike other companies I’ve seen, it isn’t overtly competitive. There’s an authentic investment in each employee’s professional development and helping individuals achieve their goals.  Whereoware is a great example of how investing in employee development not only enhances internal happiness, but service quality and customer satisfaction. Whereoware both walks the walk and talks the talk.
