Our stories

Natalie Tsay

Natalie Tsay, Sr. PR Specialist & Copywriter

“I joined Niche during the COVID-19 pandemic. I’d heard so much praise about the company culture while I was interviewing, and I was afraid that would be lost with remote work. It turns out I didn’t have to worry! Every day I feel not only included, but deeply valued and supported by the team, even through screens. I’m really proud to be part of such a friendly and talented group of people!”
