  • Nick Patrick, CEO and Co-Founder
  • Beryl Wang, Product Designer
  • Al Harnisch, VP of Business Development
  • Ryan Narod, Senior Director of Marketing
  • Amanda Vandiver, Product Marketing Lead

An Insider's view of Radar

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

We encourage folks to find their own work-life balance, whether it's defining your own working hours or taking generous personal time off. You'll find our employees stepping out for a midday workout session, working from home, or taking a stroll to the Time Out Market.


Employee Experience Manager

What does your typical day look like?

A typical day in Customer Success includes working with our customers to design location-based experiences that help them meet their business goals, supporting the implementation process, and leading business reviews to celebrate wins and identify opportunities for new use cases. You'll find me traveling quite frequently!


Enterprise Customer Success Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

It’s really important to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to marketing technology. What really stood out to me is how leadership view marketing and technology as key differentiators. I get to test beta products, run experiments, adopt innovative B2C techniques in a B2B space and that gives me a huge leg-up on legacy marketers.


Growth Marketing Lead

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We talk about the flywheel: the engineering and product teams set the product vision and build product; the marketing and BD teams position and distribute the product; the sales team sells the product; the customer success team expands usage of the product. These teams help the cycle continue.



What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Radar's product touches a multitude of technical domains: native/cross-platform app development, advanced server side processing, and API integrations. It takes a wealth of specialized technical knowledge to distill down how our product works and advise customers on how to build on top of the location infrastructure.
