How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Working on the product team, collaboration is an important part of my job. Whether it's working with the CS team to ensure we address customer issues or getting ahead of a new feature to help the sales team hit their goal, I work with other teams to better understand our customer needs in order to make a better product.

What are some things you learned at the company?

I’ve learned to grind. In early 2015, UPshow only had a few dozen partners. Now we're working with over 6,000 companies, brands, and organizations. I've been able to be involved in multiple departments which has helped me become multi-dimensional. This has helped me to look at situations through multiple views - and I can take that anywhere.

Campaigns and brand assets are built by our marketing designers each day.
