About Genie Ventures Ltd

Based in Cambridge and with a team of more than 50 people, their clients and partners include Google, Amazon, Calvin Klein, Hackett London and Sky.

Genie have a high-growth mentality, and their three strategic aims for the future are to revolutionise digital marketing for many great retailers, to create comparison shopping journeys that people love, and to become the very best team possible.

Chief Executive Officer Ciaron Dunne is described as leading by example - cleaning the kitchen, answering phones and making the tea. He’s done everything from SEO to PPC to sales - whatever’s required to get the job done, and he won’t ask anyone to do something he wouldn’t do himself.

What is it like to work for Genie Ventures Ltd

Genie made a conscious decision to avoid creating a culture of working long hours - people working late at the office are only there if it suits them better to start late. This is led and role-modelled by managers and is a key part of their development.
