At Cameo, we make impossible connections possible. Our global platform allows fans to get personalized messages from their favorite stars and creators, and through our Cameo for Business platform, all companies can now leverage the power of celebrity at scale. The key to our success? Our outstanding Cameo Fameo. The people behind the scenes, spreading joy to our talent and their fans - as well as their fellow colleagues - each and every day. 

From product marketers to talent relations managers, software engineers and recruiters, the Cameo team is made up of the brightest minds in the biz. As we grow, our core values and startup mentality remain; we value creativity, hard work, collaboration, direct dialogue and feedback, and the continued development of our people.

Our team is guided by four core values, and we like to share them early on to set the stage! 

  • Roll out the Red Carpet - Do you welcome everyone just as they are?
  • Make it Memorable - When was the last time you said, "wow, that sh!t was cool!"
  • Run Through Walls - How do you create purpose from challenge?
  • Fight for Simplicity - Get comfortable with saying no and intentional when saying yes.
