LogMeIn Virtual Networking Event & Follow-Up Questions

On April 29th, PowerToFly hosted a live webinar with some women leaders at LogMeIn. The panelists dished out their best professional advice and industry insight.

Unfortunately, with such a large number of attendees, we weren't able to address all of your questions during the event, but the LogMeIn panelists took the time to write out responses to the questions we didn't get to.

So, if you attended and your question wasn't answered, take a look at the Q&A below to read the panelists' response to your question!


1. What are some data science initiatives at LogMeIn?

Molly: Our Data Scientists align to our Product Management, Business Operations, and Machine Learning departments in highly visible and influential roles that drive customer acquisition, retention, and innovation initiatives. While we don't have any current Data Scientist roles available, you can always refer to our career site for our latest openings: https://www.logmein.com/careers.

2. What are some examples of typical projects, business challenges, and go-to channels?

Kate: We are currently working on a strategy project to map the prospect/user journeys from end to end to reveal any disjointed content/copy experiences between email, web pages, and in-product content. Our copywriters are often busy doing research to update home page copy, features or products pages based on changes or updates within the products themselves– or writing new landing pages for campaigns!


3. At the moment, LogMeIn's executive leadership is still mostly made up of men; do you see that changing in the future? Are there paths for women to move up to the highest levels of the company?

Annie: As a company we are working to find more ways to retain, promote and hire women and others who are underrepresented in tech. This year we added one woman to our Executive Team who is leading our Marketing Team. Our Head of Technology started with the company a few months ago and she is also a woman. We have our first Global Head of Diversity, also a woman, and we are developing new initiatives to improve our representation of women and others who are from other underrepresented groups. This is a key focus area for our entire company.


4. As you are going through this incredible growth period, how do you make sure the organization stays efficient and flat without adding unnecessary layers and bureaucracy?

Molly: We do our best to incorporate our company values into our day to day behaviors and actions– Be Real, Think Big, Move Fast, and Keep Growing. These values are a great reminder to explore new ideas, identify and problem solve roadblocks, consider the customer in your decision making, and that consensus is not required to make decisions.


5. What is an ideal candidate according to you?

Kate: In hiring for my team my goal is always to hire people who are smarter/brighter/more passionate about their area of expertise than I am, and then get out of their way/clear their way to let them execute. Passion and temperament over the perfect resume/experience, and I look for an eagerness to keep growing/learning.

6. What's the biggest challenge that LogMeIn is facing now and in the near future?

Lisa: Competition is heating up for all our products so moving FAST is the critical so someone that likes to move fast, can be nimble and pivot quickly if needed and don't get frazzled or thrown with ambiguity. Secondly, finding top talent- we are in a war for talent right now given how HOT the web/eCom business is. So forum's like PTF is key to our success and ensuring we focusing on diversity and inclusion as we hire and bring people on to the team.


7. Do writers, designers, etc. tend to focus on just one product/site, or do they work across all of them?

Kate: In general they focus on one "product area" which can encompass up to 6 products. However, there is often opportunity to work on other sites/projects, or to switch between, if there's interest.


8. How do you build team collaboration in a remote environment, and what opportunities are available for professional development?

Kate: My team has a robust and familiar banter/chatter on our private slack channel, for one!! Additionally, I encourage everyone on my team to seek out conferences and training to attend – as well as propose topics or talks to give both internally and externally.

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

5 Tips for Career Switchers: Insight from Work & Co’s Sarah Mogin on Making Use of Your Past Lives

Sarah Mogin never used to like writing open-ended essays in school. She found herself much more motivated by tangible problems.

Calculus had some of those—she never had trouble with her math homework—but when she was in school she never envisioned just how much she could incorporate that love of solution-finding into her daily work, much less that she would have a career as a developer one day.

30+ Ways Companies Are Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month 2021

Founded in 1989, Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15 and ends October 15. The four-week span over two calendar months may seem a bit odd, but it comes with good reason, as it covers independence anniversaries of several Latin American countries, as well as key celebrations in Hispanic and Latin communities. Apart from commemorating major holidays and historic milestones, this month honors the cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans.

We asked some of our partner companies what they're doing to honor and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at work this year, and we were inspired by the wide range of responses, from highlighting the impact that employees have in local communities to hosting fireside conversations on allyship to sharing performances and instruction of famous cultural dances.ot only are these companies honoring Hispanic Heritage Month, they're finding ways to spread positive change throughout the year.
