Our Story

Together, over 25 years of helping companies achieve more.

Kepler and Wilde was founded with one purpose: to improve the human experience by connecting the individual to the idea. We believe the extraordinary is found at the edge and is driven by an agile strategy and calculated risks. The founders understood sales and marketing are symbiotic and a lean model that focuses on empowering customers and community is something they wanted to create.

Our Namesakes

Where science and creativity meet.  

Like Johannes Kepler’s laws of planetary motion, we believe sales and marketing successfully ellipse each other when clear strategy and demand-driven methodology is not only preached, but diligently practiced. And like our own values, we believe that the creativity and social consciousness that permeated Oscar Wilde’s writings is captured in everything that we do for our customers and the freelancer community.
