An Insider's view of Cohley

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe at Cohley can be categorized as focused but fun. Expect hyper-focused strategy sessions mixed in with fun team learning events and happy hours. Because of the open layout, business conversations and personal stories from the weekend are usually shared across teams free flowingly.


Account Executive

What projects are you most excited about?

Building a robust marketing strategy that will truly make a difference to the growth of the business. As a startup, we constantly have an eye on new opportunities to reach new audiences in a new market, so our growing marketing team is focused on being creative and testing new ideas, with a strong emphasis on metrics and KPIs.


Head of Marketing

How does the company support your career growth?

The leadership team at Cohley regularly checks in with its employees to better understand what they are enjoying most about the job and where they want to be. With that understanding, they then empower those individuals to reach their goals by extending (or creating!) relevant opportunities and working closely to outline a clear path forward.


Director of Sales

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

My team is the closest to our clients, meaning they have the most insight into what we're delivering and how it adds value to their businesses. Their insight largely determines what we build, why it'd be valuable for existing and new clients, and what industry trends we should be plugging into.


Director of Customer Success

What makes someone successful on your team?

A successful AE is someone who won't hesitate to take initiative. When they encounter an inefficiency or roadblock, a successful rep will work to find a solution before bringing it to the rest of the team. This person chooses to improve process and create efficiencies in places that lesser reps may consider to be outside of the scope of their role.
