We closed the year out with a bang! We welcomed new team members, pulled our remote team from across the country together for the first time with a face-to-face 😱 holiday celebration, won industry awards, and released incredible marketing and sales material.

New Faces! 

cristinaIn May, we welcomed Marketing Automation Consultant Cristina Torres Martinez to our group. Based in Austin, Cristina is responsible for executing, optimizing, and fixing SEO issues on our clients' front-end development.

Marika has a background in non-profit and software/tech and as we continue to grow, her passion for process, operations, and making businesses run better is going to be invaluable.  

All up, our team works out of Pennsylvania, Miami, Arizona, Vancouver, Spain, and throughout Southern California.
