Our team is comprised of the best and brightest from every field but their dazzling personalities are what really makes Kiip the amazing company that it is. That’s why every month we like to profile a Kiiper so the world can know just how awesome our team is.
In this edition of Meet a Kiiper we chatted with Corrigan Neralich. Corrigan is one of our veteran Kiipers —King of NERF wars and Ad Operations Director. The only thing he loves more than Kiip is his creepy, hairless cat Mr. Hiss.
When did you start working at Kiip?
So long ago! I was originally hired in September 2013 as a part-time Administrative Intern. After three months, the internship ended, and I was brought on to be a full-time Administrative Assistant, working alongside the wonderful Charisse Fontes. After doing that for almost another year or so, the Ad Ops Manager position opened up, and Pete took a gamble (thanks, Pete!) by letting me give it a shot. I stayed in that position for close to a year before moving into the Director of Ad Ops role, which I’ve been doing ever since. It’s been one heck of a ride!
What do you do?
I work in Operations. It’s sort of the bridge connecting all of the other departments within Kiip (Sales, BD, and Product). On a day-to-day, it’s all about working with the other teams to ensure that campaigns are running smoothly across our network.
What do you love most about working at Kiip?
The people and the product, plain and simple. Not only do I get to work on amazing projects, I get to do it alongside a truly wonderful group of people, and I think that’s pretty dang special.
What is your favorite project that you’ve worked on?
I’ve worked on a lot of great projects, but my favorite so far has probably been to integrate with various third-party platforms for programmatic fill. I’m super proud of all the hard work the Engineering team has done on the project (big shoutout to Stephen!), and am excited to see where it takes us moving forward.
When you’re not at Kiip what are you most likely doing?
Snuggling with my hairless cat, Mr. Hiss.
What is your favorite Restaurant in SF?
The Copper Kettle. It’s an rough-around-the-edges Irish Breakfast joint in the Outer Sunset, and it’s wonderful.
Do you have any hidden talents?
I can solve a Rubix Cube with one hand.
What’s the first thing you would do if you won the lottery?
Pay off all my mom’s debts and buy her the house of her dreams.
What is a TV show you never miss?
Game of Thrones – no question.
