Meet Emily Masching…
What is your favorite flavor of chips?
Anything but sour cream and onion.
What is your role at Riipen?
What does your role focus on?
My main role is prioritizing and planning new features and improvements to our platform. That extends from user research (i.e. understanding what’s important to our customers) all the way to creating mockups and planning sprints. It’s a very fun job.
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
Knowing my work makes an impact.
What’s a book you love, a quote, or something you think everyone should listen to or know?
I recently read “The Gene” by Siddhartha Mukherjee, which is about exactly what it sounds like. It took me a full month to finish, but I learned more from this book than from any other single book I’ve ever read.
In your words, what’s the best part of working at Riipen?
Ask someone at Riipen what they do, and they’ll usually tell you what *Riipen* does and why it’s amazing before they tell you what their job is. Everyone here is focused on a bigger picture.
