Kimberly Jauss
Director, Creative Imaging

Kimberly Jauss has over 12 years experience in the ecommerce post-production industry.  She began her career freelancing for various photographers for various on set and post production roles.  Having discovered photoshop at a young age and falling in love with the world of image manipulation, she primarily found herself in retouching roles, however, these always quickly evolved into a hybrid of retouching and asset management.

Kimberly has always enjoyed being a part of and thrived within the creative realm, but always a bit more behind the scenes and enjoys bridging the gap between creatives flows and tech tools that help drive larger data driven business initiatives.

As the need for data and collaborative tools for teams in the industry became more prevalent, Kimberly dove into the DAM world and launched her first DAM from ground up in 2016, laying the foundation for her position as Director of Creative Imagings at and launching their first DAM.”
