The Digital Marketing Team Behind the Results
Path’s commitment to forging deep and meaningful relationships means that we keep our employees for the same reasons that we keep our clients. We’re justifiably proud of our snazzy new office space in the Flatiron district, but it’s not the well-stocked coffee bar, the zero-pretension open floor plan or the microbrews on tap that make us all want to play for the same team.
Instead, it’s the reason why members of our senior management team are also Adjunct Instructors of Digital Marketing at New York University. It’s the reason why a third of our staff pitched in on a Saturday to teach Brooklyn teens how to code as part of our Path Cares initiative. It’s the reason why Path is a company that doesn’t just encourage diversity, we draw strength from the different experiences and points of view of all our employees.
We love what we do, and we love being very, very good at it. And we are always scouting new talent.
