An Insider's view of Cision (formerly TrendKite)

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Several ingredients make the vibe here at Cision ATX amazing. I would say the environment is welcoming, ambitious, respectful, fun and energetic. And leadership truly listens and is open to change, especially if you have a strategy to back it up. I experienced all of these elements in my first week at Cision, but it remains consistent to this day.


Senior Manager, Product Marketing

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Our team faces all kinds of technical challenges. One challenge right now - our system ingests millions of articles per day. For each article we have to generate a metadata object which contains the author and a link to the article. But how do we link those to the new influencers? MLDS (Machine Learning/Data Science) magic!
