An Insider's view of Spot & Tango

What are some social events your company does?

We're always trying to mix things up! Lately our events have ranged - from casual happy hours around the office, to Yankees games and bowling leagues, to big backyard BBQs in the summer and dressy holiday parties in the winter.

Shohini Rakhit

Sr. Manager, Strategic Operations

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I focus on all parts of a customer’s journey and therefore collaborate with many different teams. I work closely with Strategy on product launches; Finance, Operations, and CX when running promotions; and of course all areas of Marketing, whether it’s graphic design or SEO.


Lifecycle Marketing Manager

What does your typical day look like?

Every day at S&T is different, which is one of my favorite parts of the job and the company. S&T is a fast-paced start-up that allows me the opportunity to wear multiple different hats and work on various tasks cross-functionally. The projects I am working on are things that haven't been addressed previously which allows me to think critically.
