    What attracted you to Vibrant and what keeps you here?

    I first joined Vibrant as an intern during the summer months before my last year of college. My experience from being an intern is definitely what motivated me to come back to – and to stay with – Vibrant. I thought it would be a stereotypical internship – coffee runs, monotonous daily tasks, painfully long hours, etc. – but after being put in challenging, thought-provoking situations and given business-critical assignments on the first day, I realized how great the summer would be. After working through the summer on exciting projects, with a tight-knit and extremely outgoing team, I knew Vibrant would be a great place for full-time employment! Upon graduation, I was offered a job as a client services specialist and all of the great qualities from my internship have now become part of my daily life.

    What makes someone Vibrant?

    One trait that all Vibrant employees share is a willingness to be outgoing. We all come from different walks of life and different parts of the globe – becoming part of the Vibrant family involves engraining yourself within a diverse group of exuberant people that constantly try new things and always have a great time. Try not to get left behind 😉

    What daily tasks do you enjoy most and why?

    Describe your team in three words?

    Connected, Fun, and Collaborative

    What attracted you to Vibrant and what keeps you here?

    I’ve been at Vibrant for almost 5 years and what initially attracted me to Vibrant was the fact that I’d get to work in a fast-paced environment where I’d get to evangelize a cool, unique digital ad offering. Vibrant’s continued innovation keeps me engaged, but my awesome team is one of the main reasons why I’m happy here.

    What daily tasks do you enjoy most and why?

    Given the generally flat organization here, many employees here (including myself) get to wear a number of hats towards our collective goals.  For me, that includes prospecting new business, negotiating terms, closing deals, managing campaign setup, pulling actionable insights, mentoring/training other AMs.  I truly enjoy working alongside other AMs and Sellers, because I continuously learn new things from them. This interaction allows me to impart what I know to others.

    What attracted you to Vibrant and what keeps you here?

    What daily tasks do you do, and what do you enjoy the most?

    Establish and maintain relationships with publishers in order to increase reach for the sales team. I enjoy this the most when I am able to create mutually beneficial business partnerships with publishers.

    We Crush Media

    What attracted you to Vibrant and what keeps you here?

    What initially attracted me to Vibrant was the rare opportunity to join a company that has established itself as a leader in the industry for 16 years, and the quality of mentorships I would receive from an accomplished management team.

    The thing that keeps me here, which most people agree on, is the culture. Vibrant has a unique ability to provide you with professional growth while having the time of your life with people you genuinely enjoy spending time with.

    What daily tasks do you enjoy most and why?

    My daily tasks include managing client relationships, prospecting new clients, pitching Vibrant and hosting client events.

    Of these tasks, my favorite thing to do is pitch Vibrant during client meetings and receive market feedback in person.

    What’s your party trick?

    Sadly, it’s the Irish Fade. (Defined: “when you leave a party/bar/etc. without telling your friends, typically because you’re afraid they won’t let you leave. it’s kind of a “better to ask for forgiveness than for permission” kind of thing.”) I’m really good at it.
