Ryan joined our NY office in January as marketing intern and he’s been instrumental with reaching out to some of our existing users and finding new users and helping on all marketing and sales related stuff.
In a few sentences – Who are you?
I’m a senior at Northeastern University (in Bahston, MA) working as a Marketing intern at Zemanta for 6 months. I’m a huge sports/music enthusiast, but one of my real addiction lies with TV shows. I have an addictive personality and I love to binge on seasons of shows in one sitting. Don’t believe me? I finished 5 seasons of Lost in a little more than a week, sleep is for the weak! (RACK CITY.)
Where did you grow up?
I grew up on the mean streets of Philadelphia. Well, not really, I just tell people I did, but in reality I grew up in a nice suburban home outside of Philly called Lansdale .. where there are way too many farms.
Who are your influences?
Simple, my father. I would be nothing without the guiding hand of my pops. From lessons of golf to girls, everything about who I am today is because of him and everything I strive to be is for him. He took care of me, so now it’s my turn to take care of him!
What did you study?
Marketing, marketing, marketing. Everything about marketing fascinates me, from consumer behavior to strategic marketing campaigns, it’s amazing to see the results of an effective marketing campaign and to observe and analyze how consumers react to it.
What is your role at Zemanta?
Working in the NY office as a Marketing intern. Doing mostly blogger outreach (reaching out to bloggers old and new) and SEO-related work.
Team Google or Team Apple? Explain!
Probably Team Apple, despite the fact that I hate their customer service. I was always a Windows guy growing up, but after getting my first Macbook, must say Apple grew on me.
How did you get involved with Zemanta?
Usually during my annual Co-op searches, I’m pretty picky with which company I want to interview with. Zemanta caught my eye immediately and decided then and there that this was the job I wanted to pursue. The rest is history!
