An Insider's view of OfferUp

What's something quirky about your company?

This may seem silly, but we have a 90lb MMA dummy our CEO bought and named Pat. On a daily basis, someone will take Pat and figure out creative ways to scare some folks in the office. How do I know? I am Pat.

What does your typical day look like?

One of the great things about OfferUp is that no two days look the same. The only thing you will see me do every day at the same time is plank at 3 p.m. with my team. Otherwise, who knows?

What makes someone successful on your team?

Like many engineers, one of my favorite parts of being in tech is using my creativity and logic to create something new, especially here at OfferUp where what we create has the ability to help the environment and enable people to support their own businesses.

What is your vision for the company?

OfferUp will continue to be the premier local mobile marketplace for buying and selling, but there will likely be more and better e-commerce opportunities with the onset of new delivery technologies. OfferUp has such unique purpose and is leading the transformation of how consumers buy and sell locally. I'm delighted to be a part of the team.

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Work/life balance is fantastic at OfferUp, especially for a startup! Sure, there are some days you may need to stay late- but everyone is pitching in here and understands the importance of recharging and resetting.
