The GENISYS team is moving!

Starting in October 2017, we’ll be lassoing up our things and moving from our Ankeny location, 10 miles south, to our new home in the heart of downtown Des Moines, Iowa.

We’re very excited about our future home and the opportunities that come with it. Having more square footage means more room to grow, and more room for activities. It also doesn’t hurt we’ll be within walking distance to one of our favorite taco joints.

Don’t worry, we’re still the same great company— just with a different location. Our other two facilities in Roland, Iowa and Albia, Iowa will still remain in their same locations.

If you have any questions about our move, or just want to say howdy, give us a holler! 


Employee Spotlight: GENISYS Marketing Specialist

A little about me
I’m Michele and I’m the Marketing Specialist for the GENISYS PoE team. Basically, I make everything look polished in this crazy world of PoE. I went to school at Iowa State University, (Go State!) and I joined the GENISYS team in May 2017. I love to bike, kayak, travel, and participate in long Netflix marathons.

My Day to Day
One thing I love about working here is that there is no “average” day for me. Every day here is different. One day I might be on the back-end of our website updating content, and the next day I might be in the green room taking photos, and then the day after that might consist of me creating a campaign for a new product line.

I can’t work without…
I always start my day with a cup of cappuccino. That is definitely one thing I can’t work without. I’m not really a coffee person, but I’m all about that cappuccino life. Folgers French Vanilla —10/10 would recommend.

My Work Playlist
When I’m not listening to Rodney‘s Jukebox, my go-to work playlist has a decent amount of variety. Here are five of my recent go-to songs:

 1.) Sam Hunt – Speakers

2.) Ed Sheeran – Kiss Me

3.) Mansionz (ft. G-Eazy) – Wicked

4.) J. Cole – Neighbors

5.) THEY. – Dante’s Creek

Ed approves.

My Favorite Lunch Spot

If I’m not eating my homemade turkey sandwich by the pond outside of our building, you can find me at Fuzzy’s with the team for cheap tacos on Tuesdays.
