Meet the Team: Ben

In this blog series, we’ll be featuring our staff here at Switchbox to give you a little more insight into what it’s like to work here, and all the interesting stuff that our team gets up to! Next up is our Product Owner, Ben!

Company Role: Product Owner

What do you do at Switchbox?

I like to think that my role is a mix of project management, client management, managing workflows of the team and projects. I communicate between several internal and external stakeholders, a communication hub for everyone. I make sure things run smoothly, and remove obstacles from team members so they can do their job efficiently.

What is your favorite memory at Switchbox? 

We had a PO outing at Harvest Pizza, it was a reminder that everyone on our team bonds and meshes well. We got to just hang out, have fun, and not have to talk about work and just be friends together.

What’s your favorite movie, TV show, or book?  

Movie: Lord of the Rings Fellowship of the Rings

TV: The Expanse

Book: Anything by David Sedaris

What do you like to do when you aren’t at work? 

I love to travel, and my number one priority is to travel to as many places as I can. I love trivia in any form. Huge movie fan, I watch every Oscar nominated movie every year. Hanging out with my dog.

What is your favorite thing about working at Switchbox?

The biggest part is definitely the people. The consistency of support from leadership and effort from my teammates. Everyone is trying to do their best all of the time. Which is so unusual from any other company.
