Why Do We Have a CheersLeader of the Month?

We periodically interview one of our amazing co-workers to highlight on our culture blog. A great culture is 100% about the people that drive it. We come from different places, backgrounds, and experiences and all add a lot of spice to this workplace.

Note from the editor: Instead of recognizing those who received the most Cheers like we do each week, we want to highlight a special individual who makes it a priority to recognize others for the amazing work they do, making them our CheersLeader of the Month!

CheersLeader of the Month: Robert Brownstein

What is your role at Social Tables? Engineer!

What were you doing before you came to Social Tables? Fighting technical debt at Hinge

What do you like to do outside of work? Hardware development, 3D modeling, biking, surfing when the opportunity presents itself.

Talk about your favorite Core Value: It’s hard to pick just one, but I really love Be Outrageous. Greatness happens when people are willing to deviate from the prescribed norm and shatter expectations. Whether you’re spreading energy on a dance floor, writing the next great open-source module, or photoshopping coworkers into paintings, that choice to push boundaries is what drives humanity forward — and I love that we treat it as a core value!

Then man was NOT kidding about tearing it up on the dance floor.

Talk about your favorite Social Tables event: I love the innovation sprint! Seeing everyone cut loose and build new technologies makes me feel like we have enormous potential as a company, and gives me hope for increased investment in novel intellectual property in the future!

What makes you weird? I know virtually nothing about sports culture.
