RocketPower Spotlight - Kaleena Marcelin

Recruiting Coordinator

Kaleena has been selected for all the work and hustle for Ownership Mentality for being on a client project but still taking the time to help out on coordinating a tremendous amount of internal interviews as well.

What made you want to join RocketPower?

I was referred to RocketPower by two former colleagues. Was excited by the opportunity to get back into the world of recruiting after a few years away and particularly interested in working at a startup company. I love that startups change and evolve constantly and couldn’t wait to be a part of that again.

Briefly describe your role here at RocketPower…

I am primarily a recruiting coordinator working on the Vimeo project. I handle scheduling for 30 roles. I also help out with smaller projects within the team. In addition to the Vimeo project, I serve as a backup RC for the internal recruiting team.

What core value do you resonate with most? (SOFE - Seek to Understand, Ownership Mentality, First Things First, Everybody Wins)

Ownership Mentality is the core value I resonate with the most. When anyone on the team needs help, I am ready to assist wherever I’m needed. If something isn’t working correctly, I do my best to figure out a new process that works for everyone.

What is your favorite thing about working at RocketPower?

I love that I am always learning something new at RocketPower. Things are changing almost daily and I love to learn about new companies we are involved with, as well as new roles we are recruiting for internally and on projects.

What is your favorite thing to do outside of work/your interests or hobbies/anything you’d like to highlight about yourself?

I read a lot. I’m currently reading F.E.A.R. by Kesia King, who is a former schoolmate of mine. I’ve just recently learned how to use a BBQ grill (don’t laugh at me!) and I’ve been grilling a lot as well.

What is a fun fact about yourself that most people don’t know?

I’m a figure skater! I’ve been ice skating on and off since I was 6 years old. I’ve done many shows, including over 20 performances of the Nutcracker on Ice.
