Man, as if smashing out #growthsprint related sales goals and product features wasn’t enough excitement, we had two newbies join the team in the past couple of weeks.
We’re pretty excited to have these two onboard and are working really hard to not just stand around all day, open-mouthed at the magic they’re both spinning already.
Since we don’t have official team photos ready yet, I’ve randomly selected a gif to represent each of them. You’re welcome guys.
Can tap dance in snowboarding boots
Sarah has had a really interesting journey to the tech start-up world. Another Hawkes Bay girl (we’re taking over), she cut her teeth in retail, where she took turns wearing Buyer and Management hats. She also wore a lot of snowboard hats. Mainly while she was yelling “hang ten!” and doing some gnarly-as carve jumps. Just kidding Sarah, I know you probably said Cowabunga.
Anyway, Sarah joined Vend a couple of years ago and helped build their globally award winning Customer Success team. She’s a legend among customer success managers and we feel incredibly lucky to have snagged her for our very own. If you’re a Weirdly user, you’ll start seeing and hearing more of Sarah – she’ll be there to help make sure you’re squeezing as much value out of our software, as you possibly can.
Front End Development
Went on family bird-watching trips as a kid
Bridget is a bit of a travel junkie. From South Africa, she trained and worked as a designer before chucking it in to go explore the world. Well, ‘chuck it in’ is probably a bit strong, but she decided she’s expand her horizons – both professionally and geographically. Starting with a stint manning (womanning?) Super Yachts, she worked her way around the playgrounds of the rich and famous – The Bahamas, St Tropez and some island where pigs swim up to eat food scraps off your boat. Eventually, ready to stretch her designer-legs again, she jumped into web design and taught herself to code, using those skills to adventure around Europe, the US and parts of South East Asia.
Luckily for us, Bridget made her way to NZ and decided to settle in – maybe it was the pineapple lumps? Maybe it was all the weird birds we have here. Either way, she’s here. Just in time to tag in as Seb leaves us. Seriously guys, in her first week she’s already bashed out tweaks and improvements to our candidate ranking display – can’t wait to see what she’s got up her sleeve for next week.
