What does your typical day look like?

My typical day at Mulberry varies depending on the sprint. Discussing product requirements, implementing new features, doing code reviews, and mentoring other engineers are some of the several tasks I take on during my day here. Working with some of the brightest individuals is something that I look forward to everyday.

What are some things you learned at the company?

Coming into a scaling startup, I wanted to understand how sales insights drive product/content strategy, and I’ve definitely had the mentorship here to do so. From enterprise sales to understanding e-commerce, joining the Mulberry team has been a great way to gain expertise with fresh industry verticals, buyer personas, and business challenges.

What is your vision for the company?

Mulberry is building the trust-layer for commerce. We help digital platforms grow loyalty (and revenue) by seamlessly embedding extended protection into their customer journey. With Mulberry, anyone can offer up to 10 year product insurance as an add-on online, while giving customers a best-in-class claims filing experience.

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm most excited about our direct-to-consumer product called MulberryCare & looking forward to it go viral! You download a Chrome extension and have access to a free 12 month protection on all accidents or issues with the product. I'm personally a superuser and have had piece of mind with all of my purchases since we launched this protection plan.
