SeatGeek Employee Spotlight: Lily Dai, Finance

Below is an article originally written by Elizabeth Turner at PowerToFly Partner SeatGeek, and published on November 3, 2017. Go to SeatGeek's page on PowerToFly to see their open positions and learn more.

Welcome to SeatGeek Employee Spotlights – an opportunity to meet the fantastic folks on our world-class team.

By day, we're a group of talented developers, designers, marketers, and businessfolk working together to build something new and different. But we are also fans and live event junkies of every kind: diehard sports fans, passionate concert-goers, sophisticated theater enthusiasts, and more. From our lives outside the office and within, we all have interesting stories to tell.

Up next: Lily Dai from our finance team!

Where were you born?
Los Angeles

Have you always lived in NYC?
No, I just moved from LA six months ago.

Where did you go to school?
I went to the University of Southern California and studied Business and Film with a double major in Accounting.

Any funny roommate or apartment stories in NYC? Feels like everyone has at least one…
We were friends on Facebook, but we never talked until I reached out to see if she needed a roommate. Can't think of any funny stories, but we once had 12 pints of Halo Top in the freezer. I called it the "Juice Cleanse".

How would your friends describe you in 3 words?
Goofy, perceptive, adventurous

Best project you've worked on at SeatGeek
We're currently redoing our forecast for the next 18 months. We're talking to the product, marketing, and recruiting teams and learning what their needs are. I'm diving a lot deeper into our business. (I know all the secrets.)

What is your dream project to work on at SeatGeek?
My dream project would be to do a deep dive into our snack inventory and find out what's the most popular. Personally, some of the protein bars taste like chalk, so figuring out which can go and what new ones we can get.

3 "fun facts" about yourself that people would be surprised to know
* You can pour 5 cans of any beverage into a frisbee disk, and I can drink it very quickly. * I fixed cars with my dad for about 10 years. If I'm ever stranded, I can fix the car. * I've taught my kitten to fetch.

Favorite place(s) to hang out in NYC
Prospect Park. I've been there about 30 times, and I still get lost almost every time. I also love that NYC has a bunch of queer spaces to hang out.

Best vacation you've ever taken
My post-college trip with my friends to East Asia. We went to six countries. We had island lifestyle and ancient temples. It was a great way to close out college plus everything was a dollar. We had an oceanfront hotel room for 50 bucks.

Favorite SeatGeek snack
Peanut butter pretzels

Why do you love SeatGeek?
Besides our business model, I love our culture. We had a pride themed happy hour. I almost teared up at how supportive everyone was of our LGBTQ co-workers. It was the perfect example of how supportive and open-minded everyone is here.

Favorite part of the office?
I love the pods in the lounge. They're super comfy, and you could take a nap if you wanted to while watching the people at Blink work out.

An Inside Look at the World of Pre-Sales with Skedulo’s Cehrin Elyas

Cehrin Elyas spends a few hours each week with the imaginary characters she’s dreamed up. One of them is Donald, a 55-year-old man with dementia. Another is Mia, a support worker who cares for people like Donald and regularly takes him to get coffee or lunch.

Cehrin works in pre-sales at scheduling platform Skedulo, and Donald and Mia are two of the personas she’s built to help her understand her prospective clients. “I think of them like movie characters,” she says. “I put in lots of data relevant to the industries I’m pitching.”
