Match Employee Spotlight – A Chat with Kenyatta

Below is an article originally written by PowerToFly Partner Match.com, and published on May 1, 2018. Go to Match.com's page on PowerToFly to see their open positions and learn more.

Hi, who are you?

I'm Kenyatta M. Walton

What do you do at Match?

Currently, I'm Manager of Accounting. Mainly responsible for the International P&L and Affinity Brands.

Haven't you had like 6 jobs since you started?

Let's see, I started out as an AP Contractor, then AP Lead, Staff Accountant, Senior Accountant, AP Manager and Accounting Manager. So you're right….6!

How long have you been here?

6 positions in 12 years.

What keeps you at Match?

The flexibility on when I can arrive to work. The fact that I can wear whatever I want to wear, within reason. The ability to be able to manage my responsibilities without a lot structure/direction/micro-management and constant growth opportunities.

Did you just go to Brazil?

Yes, I just got back from Rio. I did a site visit at ParPerfeito for work. They are our dating business in Brazil.

Cool! Where else have you been with Match?

Rio was my 3rd business trip. My first trip was a tri-city trip (NY/LA/Vancouver). My 2nd trip was to LA.

Wow, so what makes an accountant successful here?

A successful accountant at Match is someone that knows how to manage up. Meaning, they know how to own the processes they are responsible for. They know how to make connections with others in the office. Face to face is very important, not just communicating via electronic means. I think being visible and building relationships is very important.

Work hard or play hard?

Lately (b/c I'm single) I was working hard. But I recently met someone so I think it's time for me to play hard.

On Match?

Met at the airport on my way to Rio for my work trip! Well, we met on the flight from Dallas to Miami…

Congrats! What's your dream vacation spot?

There are so many places to choose from. One place on my list is Barcelona.

What's your favorite time of year?

Fall…October

What's your favorite TV show?

Right now, I'm listening to Suits. When I'm home my favorite show has been This Is Us.

What's better, a good movie or a good TV series?

A good movie. The last good movie I saw was Black Panther.

iOS or Android?

iOS….of course
