We caught up with Stephanie Szot, a new member of the Enventys crew who located her Account Manager position through Malakye.com. She tells us about transitioning from media to product development, the projects Enventys have worked on, and the office relocation.

After working at a large media company for two years, I was looking for something more hands-on in a creative field. When I found the job posting for Enventys on Malakye, it seemed like a perfect fit. I did my research on the company and was very excited about the opportunity and couldn’t wait to be a part of the team.
