If you want a place to play ping pong, spend a ton of money on parties after a giant round of funding, have climbing walls, and flat-brimmed bro hats....this is NOT the place you want to be.

If you want a job that's rewarding and rewarded, where you'll be well-compensated, where you can have fun but are still expected to hit your numbers, your goals and your benchmarks...then this IS the place you want to be. At Kenect success is demanded, rewarded and respected. We work hard, we have fun and we get things done.

That's why we're exploding with growth.
