#TeamWP: Meet Peiwen, Customer Acquisition Manager

How does Whitepages Premium make sure it’s providing the best product for the right customers? While there are many dynamic Whitepagers working behind the scenes to answer that question, Peiwen leads the charge as our Customer Acquisition Manager, optimizing our Search Engine Marketing (SEM). SEM was new to Peiwen when she joined the team, but her background in analytics, her perseverance, and her natural curiosity made her a perfect fit! Peiwen spends her days working closely with her team to understand our customers and implement the most effective marketing strategies. She is passionate about reaching millions of users with the ultimate goal of connecting them to the right Premium products. When she’s not working on her laptop perched in the bay window of the Great Room (she doesn’t like desks much!), you can find Peiwen snacking on some Pop Chips, sipping a cup of coffee, and staring out over the landscape of the city in our downtown Seattle office.

What’s your hometown?
Tijuana, Mexico.

What does being a Whitepager mean to you?
It means owning everything that I do and accepting that not everything will always work out. One of the most important parts of any process are the lessons we learn and being even better the next time we try. My team is full of “doers” who will do everything in their power to get things done, even if they are not initially familiar with the task.

What’s been the most influential piece of technology in your life so far?
Pandas in Python. It’s made my life so much easier. It was like putting on glasses and seeing the world for the first time.

What’s the last TV show you binge-watched?
American Horror Story and Bones.

What do you do when you have 30 minutes of free time?
I play Stardew Valley.

What’s your favorite meme?
Absolutely Barbaric, especially when referring to hard-shell tacos. I am a purist.

What’s your favorite downtown lunch spot?
Shiki, a Japanese joint on Roy St. I recommend the Porkbelly Donburi.

What’s the last vacation you went on?
I went to Cartagena and Bogota to a friend’s wedding. Colombians can plan a party!

What’s your favorite Whitepages memory (so far)?
There are many, but my favorite one is when our Carepages affinity group went down to Youthcare’s Orion Center to cook and serve lunch to homeless teenagers.

#TeamWP: Meet Christopher, Senior UX Designer

Christopher, UX Designer

Have you ever really thought about the details of the webpage you’re visiting – the font, the word choice, the color combinations, the size of a picture, or the placement of a button? Talented Whitepagers like our Senior User Experience (UX) Designer, Christopher, spend a lot of time focused on those things so that you aren’t! He takes good ideas and customer feedback to create solution-focused features to make the Whitepages Pro site intuitive, functional, and consistent. Christopher and his team make sure the Whitepages brand shines through while allowing users to easily navigate the site and efficiently use our products. When he’s not hard at work at his standing desk, you may find Christopher in the Great Room comparing CrossFit WOD times with his fellow Whitepagers.

What’s your hometown?
Kokomo, Indiana

What was your very first job?
I put together bikes in a Schwinn shop.

What does being a Whitepager mean to you?
Working with super smart people to make identity data easier to use and manage. On a daily basis I see someone from my team undertake a task that may not be in their field of expertise or may not be in their job description. They do what needs to be done to move the team forward, and they do it without hesitation.

What’s your go-to snack in the kitchen?
Cottage cheese. So much protein!

What’s the last TV show you binge-watched?
All nine seasons of Seinfeld.

What’s your favorite meme?
Aww yiss…breadcrumbs. (You’re Googling now, aren’t you?)

What’s your favorite downtown lunch spot?
I usually bring my lunch, but I do go to Chipotle a LOT. I’m trying to keep it healthy! (Though his many pizza-themed t-shirts honor his true love.)

What’s the last vacation you went on?
I visited my friends in Las Vegas for Thanksgiving and saw the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. It was awesome.

When you’re not working at your desk, where are you in the office?
In the Great Room. When I need to focus, it’s like hiding in plain sight.

Christopher UX Designer

Christopher performs with the Whitepages cover band at our annual company trip in Portland.

What’s your favorite Whitepages memory (so far)?
The company trip to Portland last year was pretty fun, and I really got to know a lot of my colleagues better.
