Quick Questions with Amy: Marketing Assistant

When she's not baking, getting outdoors with her adventure-loving baby girl and partner or dreaming about bungee jumping, Amy is our marketing assistant here at SwipedOn HQ in New Zealand. We caught up with Amy for a quick fire round of questions to learn more about her and what a day in the life is like at SwipedOn.

What does a day in the life of you at SwipedOn look like? 

It always starts with coffee. From there it varies, no two days are the same - which is something I really enjoy about working at SwipedOn. My day can include anything from collaborating with the team on out of the box marketing ideas (marketing in the wild), working in the backend of our website, producing marketing collateral or working with design & product on rolling out a new feature release or update.

What do you like about working at SwipedOn?  

It’s been said and I’ll say it again because it’s so true… the people! There are a lot of talented team members who are not only amazing at what they do but also have a lot of cool interests outside of work. So you can guarantee the office banter is always entertaining. From the get-go, there has been a huge emphasis on maintaining a fun, positive and supportive culture. In my first week of joining SwipedOn, I was white water rafting down a 7-metre waterfall with my teammates. How’s that for team bonding?

What do you particularly like about what we’re doing with SwipedOn?  

Offering a simple solution to businesses that not only streamlines their front desk but helps in reducing their carbon footprint & eliminates the need for paper processes which I think is pretty neat, particularly in this day and age.

What three words would you use to describe your role? 

1. Widen.
2. The.
3. Funnel.

What is your SwipedOn screensaver? 

A shot of the beach.

What did you do in your previous working life? 

Back in the days, I used to work at a local pharmacy and had the odd job in retail and customer service. I also worked for a PR and Marketing company assisting small-medium businesses with their marketing needs and as a Marketing Assistant for an Australasian paint manufacturer.

What do you do in your free time? 

At the moment my 10 month-old daughter keeps me pretty busy, so my weekend usually involves going on adventures with her and my partner - whether it’s climbing the Mount or spending time at the beach. Also a big fan of cooking!

What is still left on your bucket list? 

1. Run a marathon
2. Bungee jump!
3. Eat my way around Europe

What’s on your SwipedOn playlist? 

A bit of everything really! With a few guilty throwbacks added to the mix. I grew up with three older brothers so a lot of what I listen to has been influenced by them; Blink 182, Sublime, Greenday, Foo Fighters. Plus a bit of Six60 & Drax project. Also a 90's baby so you can only imagine. Nursery rhymes 123 and The Wiggles are strong contenders in the 'most played' playlist too (#momlife)

If you were stuck on a desert island and you could choose one person from the SwipedOn team to come with you, who would you take and why? 

Probably my fellow Marketing teammate, Lou. She’s a pretty keen surfer and knows how to ‘read’ the waves, which would definitely work in our favour when we’re trying to find our way home… surely?

Let’s end this with a weird fact about you…  

I once broke my nose whilst making apple crumble... (despite the Owen Wilson nose, the crumble still tasted 👌)
