How long have you been at Tango Card?
Almost a year! But honestly, it feels like much longer. Time passes fast at Tango Card.
What is your position? What does it mean to you?
I’m in biz dev, which basically means I ask a lot of questions and talk to a lot of different people every day!
What gets you excited about Tango Card?
I get super pumped when startups call-in asking about incentives and rewards for their apps. Some are early stage and others are further along, but I love digging into their gamifeid UX/UI and testing their engagement strategies myself. It’s so cool to experience first hand how sticky a client’s app is, noticing how engrossed I get with the content and actions. Gamification and engagement fascinates me.
What’s the most rewarding experience you’ve had at Tango Card?
I’m still relatively new, but there have been so many rewarding experiences at Tango Card! Overall, it’s been rewarding to represent a super cool service that our customers really need. I’ve had so many calls that ended with, “wow, this is exactly the kind of thing we were looking for,” and that’s so fun for me! I also love working side-by-side with some incredibly driven and hard working people. There’s a real sense of purpose and excitement at Tango Card. I have not experienced that same energy anywhere else.
Favorite App/website to boost productivity?
Favorite App/website to “take breaks”?
What music is on right now?
The Buena Vista Social Club, but that’s only because I’m over at Elliott’s house right now (another Tango Card colleague). If I’m working on something that requires a lot of focus, I can’t do music. I find it distracting. But when I’m driving or doing something mindless, my favorite music is NPR. I’m a news/info junkie.
What is your motto?
This is a hard question! I’m the kind of person who loves to debate and explore ideas. Thankfully, Google regularly saves my bacon when I’m arguing a point with no factual evidence (I’m trying to quit). So, given that, I guess my motto would be “trust but verify.”
