Continuing our Meet the Team series, get to know Anusha Alagarasan, Senior Customer Success Manager at Zignal Labs.
1. Where did you grow up?
New Jersey, where we pump our fists, not our gas 🙂
2. What did you want to be when you were a kid?
An oceanographer, even though I can’t swim.
3. What was your first job?
I worked in the postpartum ward at a hospital. I visited new moms to make sure they were doing okay and helped them sign up for newborn mementos and keepsakes.
4. What do you do at Zignal?
I am a Senior Customer Success Manager, working with our clients to instill the power and value of Zignal.
5. What do you love about working at Zignal?
I love that we have so many clients in different verticals. It’s powerful to see how our software can empower some of the most recognized companies in the world to build and protect their brands.
I also love our culture – we do a great job making sure our teams that are spread across the world feel involved and appreciated.
6. If you could do any other job at Zignal for one day, which would it be?
I’d love to spend a day with our Product team, as I see them as one of the main sources of our innovation. It would be great to see how they come up with our roadmap and new feature ideas.
7. Describe yourself in three words.
Positive, fun and supportive.
8. What are you passionate about outside of work?
I love to cook. I’ve seen almost every single Gordon Ramsay show and often cook for myself and small groups of friends.
9. Who inspires you?
My family. We moved to the US when I was seven, which, looking back, must have been an incredibly tough decision for my parents. Every day I try to remember to put my faith in the future and be lucky for the life I have.
10. What’s your favorite quote?
“I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good old days before you’ve actually left them.” – Andy Bernard (The Office)
11. What’s your coffee order?
Coffee with milk, no sugar. If it was an especially long day, a cappuccino with an extra shot.
12. What’s your favorite breakfast cereal?
Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds.
13. What’s the best meal you’ve ever eaten?
Little Owl in New York City. Fun fact, it’s in the ground level of the building they used to film the exterior of Monica’s apartment in F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
14. Do you have any pets?
Yes! I have a four-year-old kitty named Chester. We rescued him from a bodega parking lot in Westchester – hence the name. His favorite activities include ignoring me, chasing lasers and sleeping in sunspots.
15. Which historical figure would you like to meet?
Queen Anne. After watching the movie The Favourite, it was interesting to learn that she was credited for bringing together Scotland and England to create the United Kingdom after years of bloodshed.
