1. What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I love going on long runs in parks around New York City. My go-to is Central Park but I also enjoy running in Riverside Park and Carl Schurz Park. You can also find me watching Premier League soccer matches (I mean football!) at various bars in the city on weekends.
2. Where were you working prior to Merge?
I was at Workato, which is another company in the integration space. Over there I held a similar role—I was the managing editor of the company’s blog and spearheaded other content initiatives.
3. What attracted you to Merge?
A few things: For one, the leadership team really impressed me. Gil and Shensi (the two co-founders) are incredibly passionate, smart, hard working, and personable. They truly lead by example.I could also tell that the product was best-in-class by looking through all the glowing reviews on G2 and by seeing the company’s position in the G2 Grid® for Unified APIs.
4. What does your typical day at Merge look like?
I generally spend the majority of my day writing or editing, whether that’s social copy, SEO blog posts, case studies, work from freelancers, e-books, etc. I also spend time managing the strategies, experiments, and editorial calendars for our social channels and blog.
5. What do you like most about working at Merge?
It’s probably the people. Everybody here is so excited about their work and our mission of helping companies scale customer-facing integrations without burdening developers. I also love the fact that everybody comes into the office. It makes work so much more collaborative and fun.
6. What keeps you excited about working here?
It’s a combination of things. Being surrounded by smart, wonderful people is deeply motivating. And our product, while already the best in the market, is constantly improving. The sky's the limit to what we can accomplish!
