MEET THE SOCIALLADDER TEAM: MADDY

Meet Maddy – the next member of SocialLadder to be featured on our new “Meet the Team” series! We got the chance to sit down with her, ask her some questions about work & life, and find out what makes her tick!

WORKING AT SOCIALLADDER

“I think what I like the most about working at SocialLadder is that this company is the best at what they do. It’s pretty amazing to work at a place that is literally at the top of their field.”

 

WORKDAY ROUTINE

“My typical work day looks like trying to get us new business, so I am looking at new events that we think would be a good fit for us and reaching out to them and trying to get them excited about our platform!”

 

FUN FACT!

“I practice mounted archery! It’s where you shoot with a classic bow and arrow, shooting at targets from horseback – it’s really hard because you’re going really fast. I’m decent but it took me a long time; it’s a really hard discipline and it took me a lot of practice, but it’s also so much fun and it makes you feel like you’re in a prehistoric war.”

 

WHAT IS AT THE TOP OF YOUR BUCKET LIST?

“I really want to go to Indonesia, because my friend gave me this picture book and the pictures of Indonesia are the best.”

 

FAVORITE PIZZA TOPPINGS

“I love hawaiian pizza!”

IMG_0299 (1)

GUILTY PLEASURES

“Food that makes me fat. Also, I’m low key obsessed with The Vampire Diaries. It’s really bad, I’m so guilty about that one.”

 

FAVORITE CONCERT

“Oh my god, where to begin? Most impressive performance would be Mumford and Sons, which sounds really basic, but it’s like the most moving thing. It’s crazy! Also this is relevant to [SocialLadder]! – my cousin and I were front row for Young the Giant at Firefly in 2014. That was pretty special, and I’m just glad we weren’t crushed to death! There were thousands of people.”

 

SECRET TALENT

“This is super random and not even mildly useful but I’m really good at foosball. We have a table at home and I used to make my dad play with me everyday when I was a kid.”

 

HAVE YOU EVER WON SOMETHING? IF SO, WHAT?

“When I was in 5th grade, I got picked first to go on a field trip and choose where we went. Also, my college club field hockey team won the state championship!”

WORKING AT SOCIALLADDER

I enjoy that our job gives us a chance to work with a variety of different people. From people who organize festivals to ambassadors for smaller events, it’s cool to see everyone get excited about a product we’re passionate about creating. Everyone I’ve worked with so far has been so positive, and I feel very fortunate to interact with people who are so enthusiastic on a daily basis.

 

TYPICAL WORKDAY

After hopping the train into the office and getting my daily dose of caffeine, my day starts with reviewing new events that want to use SocialLadder. We see all types of events excited to work with us, from music festivals to marketing seminars. After this, the work I do tends to vary day to day, but is generally focused with helping our users with the app, improving the user experience, and testing new features for the app.

IMG_0057

MUSIC

I generally enjoy all types of music (with maybe the exception of country). Lately, I’ve been listening to a lot of Emancipator.

 

IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY SUPERPOWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

The ability to teleport anywhere in an instant. This would save me a lot of time in the morning.

 

IF YOU WERE TO TRY OUT FOR A SINGING COMPETITION SHOW, WHAT SONG WOULD YOU AUDITION WITH AND WHY?

Singing is not my forte lol. Next question please.

 

FIRST CONCERT

The first concert I attended was Slightly Stoopid when I was about 16 and living in the Lehigh Valley. It was at a bit of a hole in the wall venue named Crocodile Rock, which since has gone out of business. This experience sort of opened my eyes to the world of live music, and since then I’ve been to way too many shows to count. I did manage to see them again about 10 years later here in Philadelphia.

 

FAVORITE PLACE IN PHILLY

I moved to the Philadelphia area just about 4 months ago, so I feel like I still have plenty that I have yet to see! However, I did stop by The Plateau in Fairmount Park over the weekend, and really enjoyed the spectacular view as well as the opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of center city. Another spot I enjoyed was the rooftop of the Philadelphia Public Library. I stopped by for one of the “Parks on Tap” events they had going – it was great to relax with a beer and enjoy the view of Logan Square while the sun set.

 

IF YOU COULD LIVE ABROAD FOR A YEAR, WHERE WOULD YOU LIVE?

If I were to go abroad for one year, I would try out New Zealand. I am very much a beach person, and nowhere in NZ are you more than an hour or two from the coast. I think it would be awesome to have a year to explore here, as a good portion of the islands are still fairly untouched by humanity. Australia would be a close second, but the fact that New Zealand naturally has no snakes makes this seem like a much more fun exploration opportunity.

BIGGEST INFLUENCE/ROLE MODEL

I stewed on this one for a while, and as strange as it sounds I’m not sure I could pinpoint a “role model” or someone who I aspire to be like. I think people are inherently different for a reason and it’d be a shame to try to be someone else. I guess a simple “no answer” would’ve done here lol.

 

FAVORITE CANDY/DESSERT

Reeses, or pretty much anything with peanut butter.

Meet Jake – the first team member to be featured on our new SocialLadder “Meet the Team” series! We got the chance to sit down with him, ask him some questions about work & life, and find out what makes him tick!

WORKING AT SOCIALLADDER

The thing I like most about working at SocialLadder is the excitement! There’s an awesome sense of motivation that I get from feeling like there’s always something big around the corner – the excitement that I get from our roadmap and the energy of the team around me keeps me motivated!”

 

WORKDAY ROUTINE

“I take the train into work, so I get oriented with some sort of audio – music, podcasts, poetry – that gets me into the zone to work (along with some coffee). From there, I wear a lot of hats here – managing the office, helping oversee account delivery, recruitment, etc. That keeps things varied from day to day! The constant is usually taking a little time off in the middle of the day to grab a delicious lunch special in Chinatown.”

 

FUN FACT!

“It’s not all that interesting to me, but most people are interested to know that I love to make music! Whether I’m playing with a band or making music on my computer, I’m constantly thinking about writing music. It’s definitely fun to be able to play a sax solo!”

CHALLENGES

“I’m very lucky to have been given all the opportunities I have had in my life; the biggest challenge I’ve faced has definitely just been making it through all of my schooling, though. I had a tough time in high school being motivated to do any work at all – even in college, I was just way too off-the-wall to sit still in a lecture. So I’m very proud that I was able to reel myself in and become a more organized and hardworking person!”

 

ATHLETICS

“I used to play lacrosse, which I was pretty good at, but I really soured on it because of the sort of hardcore team-sports hierarchy. So I played more golf, which I soured on because I started caddying, and the last thing I wanted to do was go back out on the course! I like to play pick-up basketball, but my real favorite sport is probably football – I’m a fanatic, and I love to stay up-to-date on all things NFL when the season is in swing. Go Eagles!”

 

MUSIC

“I really listen to everything – my grandpa gave me a love of jazz like Louis Jordan, my dad gave me a love of classic rock like Santana & Grateful Dead, and I personally love to make hip-hop and experimental electronic music. But right now, my favorite stuff is anything disco-related – French house, nu-disco, and even just the straight-up old school stuff. It’s the best dancing music!”

 

FAVORITE FOODS

“I have a couple favorite foods to eat, and most of them are seasonal, but almost all of them are soup! I like spicy gazpacho in the summer, and something hearty with noodles like pho or laksa when it’s cold out. I also really like pasta – ravioli stuffed with seafood or some gnocchi are personal favorite eats. My favorite dish to cook is tonkatsu – Japanese fried pork. I have a soft spot for anything fried! My girlfriend & her family taught me to make fried Vietnamese spring rolls, which are super-delicious!”

 

FAVORITE CONCERT

“The best concert I’ve ever attended was Flying Lotus – I’ve seen him twice, and I think he’s just on a completely different level than anyone else in the world when it comes to creating mind-blowing music with a computer. He’s also linked up with crazy graphics artists, so the whole concert experience with him is just insane. If you can ever catch him on tour, I highly recommend it!”

IF HOLLYWOOD MADE A MOVIE ABOUT YOUR LIFE, WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE CAST AS YOU?

“If there was a movie about my life, the only person I could trust to make me interesting on the screen would be Christian Bale! I’d probably end up seeming like a psychopath, but that’s okay. He’s absolutely my favorite actor! Close second would go to Tom Hardy, but he’s a couple sizes too buff to play me!”

 

IF YOU COULD INTERVIEW ONE PERSON (DEAD OR ALIVE) WHO WOULD IT BE?

“I would love to interview Wallace Stevens – I love poetry, his especially. He was also just a fascinating person – on the way to becoming a legendary modern poet, he lived and worked at an insurance company for his whole life! Similarly, William Carlos Williams, who worked as a physician. Both would have a lot to say about the sort of abstract philosophical world of poetry colliding with “normal” everyday life, I think.”
