Q: Who are you? Where are you from?
A: My name is Miranda (She/her/hers), and I am from Brookline, MA.
Q: What’s your background? What did you do before Modulate?
A: I went to Babson College for business, and have been working at various startups since I was 15 in my first internship. The feeling of excitement, passion, and drive that I found in startups was addicting, and eventually led me down the sales track which left me most recently an Account Executive at a SAAS startup called LinkSquares.
Q: Why are you joining Modulate?
A: I was drawn to Modulate because of the mission and the culture. Having played a lot of video games as a teen, I’ve experienced a ton of toxicity which turned me away from the games over time. The company culture also stands out as incredibly inclusive and well thought out. Additionally, the exciting growth propelled by the 30M Series A suggested that this would be a great opportunity for me at this point in my career.
Q: What’s your ideal work environment? Any special strategies you use to stay effective?
A: My ideal work environment is a supportive one where every voice is heard and decisions are made with data in a transparent and ethical way. Some strategies I use to stay effective are to block off important tasks on my Google calendar to allocate time needed to accomplish my goals. I also go into focus zones where I like to pump out good work and then go for a walk to recharge my battery.
Q: Tell us about something you must have in any culture you join?
A: Transparency, growth opportunities, and a welcoming inclusive environment.
Q: Who are you outside of work?
A: Outside of work I love to spend time with my family, friends, and dog, “Noodle”. I love to travel, and learn new languages as well. My favorite thing to do recently is to try new ramen restaurants and go to wine tastings.
Q: What’s something you’re great at that few people realize?
A: I make a mean margarita!
Q: Leave us with a fun tidbit - a favorite joke, a story from your past, an obscure riddle, whatever you like!
A: I have an inferiority complex, but it's not a very good one.
