Customer Experience Coordinator

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I was looking for a change when I found Artifact Uprising and jumped on board as a seasonal holiday employee. Since then, I’ve had the pleasure to grow with the company on our Customer Experience Team and more recently on our People Operations Team.

Alex

Office Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

By encouraging them to find inspiration outside of the 4 walls of our office. We aim to be conscious observers of what’s happening in other visual areas: fashion, interior design, illustration, fine art, etc, to reinvigorate our creative energy.

Emily

Creative Director

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

We're motivated by creating moving experiences & quality products that become a meaningful part of our customers’ lives. To make this a reality, it takes dedication and many heads-down hours.

We also know that inspiration can't always be found at our desks - so we're encouraged to live the kind of lives that fill us up and create clarity to return
