CIENCE turns three in no time. While it’s a pretty tough age for toddlers and their parents, for us it’s the time of growth and development. Back in 2015, we had 15 employees in the US and Ukraine. Now we’ve expanded to 217 people located in Europe, Asia and in North and South America.
Our company began operating officially on June 2, 2015. It was founded by Thomas Cornelius. Then, it had the name Leadware. We hired ten researchers to generate quality leads for our very first client. In 2017, the company was acquired by CIENCE.
Our first client was FiveStars – one of the largest loyalty and marketing automation software for SMBs in the United States. This fruitful cooperation has lasted for three years thus far. We’ve generated over a million leads and helped them improve the outreach to their potential clients.
Only five people of the initial team are with us. These are what we call CIENCE Ancients – Anna Svetlichnaya, Diana Kacheyshvili, Vladimir Alekseenko, Julia Menzheres and Kate Hrebeniuk.
They’ve seen our company rise and witnessed all the changes. Along with CIENCE, they’ve matured as personalities and grown as professionals. These amazing people shared their memories with us, so that we could tell a consistent story about our organization and present it to our employees and clients.
Back in 2015, the CIENCE Ancients were young, and had little experience. They were hired as researchers. Most of the Ancients back then were still students and knew little about data enrichment. They studied a lot and worked hard to become credible experts.
Diana Kacheyshvili and Julia Menzheres stayed in research. Meanwhile, Anna Svetlichnaya, Vladimir Alekseenko, and Kate Hrebeniuk chose a different career path within the company, such as Sales Assistance, Custom Success Management and Corporate Training.
We did heartwarming interviews with each of them to commemorate their contribution to the success and growth of our company:
