Meet The Casper Team: Stephanie Bloom

Below is an article originally written by Alyse Borkan at PowerToFly Partner Casper. Go to Casper's page on PowerToFly to see their open positions and learn more.

Name: Stephanie Bloom

Position: Retail Strategy Manager

What Do You Do? My job is really to think about what Casper's offline footprint is. While we think you can (and should!) order a mattress online, we also know that many people want to test the bed before they purchase – there is something to be said about interacting with our brand and our products in the physical world. That is where I come in! My job is to grapple with the intersection of retail and e-commerce, and thereafter figure out how to best rollout showrooms, pop-ups and brick and mortar stores in a way that is interesting, innovative and uniquely Casper. Simply, my goal is to expand and enhance our retail experiences so we can reach more customers and introduce them to who we are and what we do here at Casper.

What You Like About Casper? What I like is the fast-paced nature of Casper. I am at my personal best when kept busy and so really enjoy the ever-changing environment. There certainly is no such thing as a typical desk job or a 9-5, but I find that kind of dynamism fun! It keeps me on my toes and I think really pushes us all as a team to grow as fast as Casper is growing. There are definitely days where maybe it feels hard to keep up; but with that, I'm learning new skills and that is invaluable. I think it is really fascinating to be involved in so many inter-departmental projects and to have a job that allows me to troubleshoot and critically think. Plus, of course, it helps that the people at Casper are among the smartest and most creative out there. It makes all of the difference!

Have you ever dreamed of pivoting into the world of software engineering? Claire Johnson, a self-proclaimed chemistry nerd who landed a chemical engineering job straight out of college, certainly hadn't… that is, until she took her first programming class online at Stanford. Now she's a full-time software engineer at Quip, Salesforce's productivity platform. "I never would've thought that I would do this when I graduated college," she explains, laughing.

What to Write in a Farewell Card to a Leaving Coworker: Quotes and Examples

For the boss you loved, the coworker you hated, and everyone in between

Two things are inevitable when someone leaves your team at work: there will be an abundance of sweet treats (I'm partial to those giant cookie cakes from the mall) and there will be a card passed around for everyone to scrawl the professional version of sweet nothings in. Depending on the "importance" of the person, you may get the bonus activities of farewell gifts and/or an all-team champagne toast.

A Night of Networking with Peloton’s Women Tech Leaders

If you are a New York based tech professional and you'd like to attend this event, please email your name and LinkedIn URL to events@powertofly.com.

Whether you are a software engineer, fitness enthusiast or both, you won't want to miss PowerToFly's evening of product demos and networking with the women tech leaders and allies at Peloton.

Founded in 2012, Peloton brought top talent together in its Silicon Alley headquarters to create a new concept in fitness. In their words, "We loved cycling but had a hard time finding a workout that consistently fit our schedules, and our at-home workouts never felt quite up to par. So, we set out to create a world-class indoor cycling studio experience on your time, and in the comfort of your own home."

This event is your chance to hear directly from the women tech leaders and allies who make their revolutionary products like the Peloton Bike, Peloton Tread and Peloton App possible. We'll be devoting a large portion of the event to taking your questions and I know the Peloton team wants to hear from you!

The unique evening will take place on Wednesday, February 12th from 6pm to 8:30pm at 125 W 25th Street.
