Temiloluwa let’s us know why communication is extremely important in a startup.
What do you do at Brass?
I am the Product Marketing and Communications lead at Brass.
What does a typical day for you at work look like?
I start my day at 6:30/7am by taking a walk because I work remotely so I need to be as active as possible. I then take a look at my weekly and monthly goals to ensure I stay aligned throughout the day with that. I take a look at my slack and reply any pending messages. I proceed with completing whatever tasks I have for the day.
Did you always want to be a Product marketer?
Product marketer? no but I knew I had always wanted to do something that related to communications. Growing up, I tailored my internships in relation to companies that focused on advertising and marketing.
When you are not working, what do you enjoy doing?
Watching tv shows and spending time with my family.
How would you describe what you do to a five year old?
I help people understand what my company does.
What is your favourite thing about working at Brass?
The people and remote work. It’s a combination of these two things because although I love remote work so much and would never give it up, whenever the team comes together physically, it’s an amazing vibe.
How would you describe Brass’s work-life balance?
It’s great. It is not a company that micromanages you, instead allows you to take full ownership of your work and deliver at a good time. I can close my laptop at 5pm on Friday and not worry about anyone disturbing my weekend with calls or emails.
What is the one thing you are most proud of?
My two degrees. I put in a lot of work in getting my BA and Masters and I’m extremely happy about the positive ripple effect that followed after getting these degrees.
Which of Brass’s pillar of culture do you resonate with and why?
Communicate clearly. I’m not sure if its because I work in the comms department but, I feel like a lot of tasks can be done quickly if communicated properly. Miscommunication and assumptions can be very dangerous for startups because we are usually more fast paced than other companies.
