Quidizen Spotlight: Ginger Bisharat on her Quid projects and a bicycle ‘minivan’

Meet Quidizen Ginger Bisharat, executive assistant on #teamops

Tell us a fun fact about you.

When I was living car-free as a single mom in the city, circa 2009, the company I was working for bought a new building in a different neighborhood. Suddenly what had been a manageable commute by bus became completely ridiculous. So I got a long bike, which is the bicycle equivalent of an SUV. We occasionally borrowed a car — in torrential rain, or if there was something to carry that we couldn’t fit on the bike — but otherwise we were really happy to find a car-free way to get to school on time. A reporter even did a video on us!

What is the coolest project you’ve worked on since joining the ops team at Quid?

I love making things work, so the operations team is the right place for me. There are a lot of little fun things to do, like finding times for a series of 17–20 person meetings across the whole company. It’s like completing a puzzle when you find the right date and time for a meeting. A favorite moment was when our CEO needed a visa to China, but first we had to send his passport away to the UK to be renewed. He didn’t have enough blank pages in the old one, and I happened to know that the Chinese Consulate would turn us away for that reason. Sometimes it pays to be experienced!

What do you like most about being a Quidizen?

I like being a part of a company that is reaching for the stars. The team here is truly dedicated to our mission, and it shows in our culture. We are helpful, data-driven, and never satisfied with “good enough.” There’s a saying, “If you love what you do, you never have to work a day in your life,” and I’ve never felt that was more true than at Quid.
