If you use Sweeps, you probably know that a lot of our day-to-day interaction with Sweepers and customers happens on the Internet or by call or text. So who are the people behind the computer screen? I asked each member of the Sweeps team to tell us a little bit about themselves, what they do for Sweeps, and for fun.
Keep reading to find out what Charlie’s cool last job was, which person on the team started out as a Sweeper, and whose dog is always in our Instagram posts!
Founder, Chief Sweeper
Location: outside Chapel Hill, NC
“As a small team, we all do a bit of everything. I’m responsible for aligning our team and platform towards serving our community and growing. This means listening, communicating, and working on our product vision and day-to-day growth and support.
Outside of Sweeps, I like to read, cook, travel, play with my dog Banks and stay active with basketball and soccer.”
Location: Raleigh, NC
“I define, test, and develop Sweeps’ growth strategies. Whether it’s by launching a new campus or an email marketing campaign, my role is to make Sweeps the best way to hire college students everywhere.”
Fun facts: “I was a cook for years and I love to get back in the kitchen. I also enjoy playing the guitar, traveling, and bicycling. I’ve lived in five states and three countries and enjoy reading about urban development.”
“My goal is to make posting a job and working a job with Sweeps as seamless as possible, and to turn Sweeps into an on-demand platform for finding college students to help for just about anything.”
You can find me reveling in the Rockies, hiking, fishing, camping, skiing… I have too many hobbies. But I was actually a Sweeper before I joined the team a few years later, and I love that it helped me through college financially.”
Director of Community Partnerships
Location: Durham, NC
“I educate our local businesses, nonprofits, and community organizations about how hiring college students through Sweeps can help them knock nagging items off their to-do lists.
When I’m not working, I’m probably busy training my 7-month old puppy or getting my house ready to sell in preparation for a big move!”
“I work on recruitment, growth, and user acquisition. I send out promotional emails, gather contacts in different cities and universities, and contact potential connections.
At UNC, I play on the rugby team. I love skiing, hiking, traveling, and eating at food trucks. I’m originally from upstate New York!”
Location: Chapel Hill
“I write things for Sweeps. Mostly, that means I write posts for this blog and our social media pages (have you followed us on Instagram?), and sometimes, I work on editing and improving the emails we send out to you all — our customers and Sweepers.
When I’m not writing for Sweeps or school, I’m probably reading, dancing, cooking, or planning my next trip.”
