Birchbox just keeps growing. We’re running out of desks! It’s a great problem to have, though, especially when our new team members are so undeniably awesome. We’ve already introduced you to Crystal, our customer service ninja. Today, meet the Matts. Until now, Patrick has been our lone male but now we’re edging our way toward gender parity. There was even a brief fantasy football discussion yesterday! (Immediately followed by a discussion of blue eyeliner.) Here’s a little bit about our new superstars.
Matt Hertz, Strategic Operations and Logistics
Hometown: Toronto, Canada - have been living in New York for as long as possible (i.e. every summer through college)
Unofficial job: Men’s self-tanner and Morning After Rescue-Gel guinea pig
Fun Fact: Came to america and joined a fraternity (Wall Street); have since found myself living in sororities (two fashion and beauty startups)
Beauty product that you find most baffling: Shaving cream; you apply, and all the pain goes away. What else in life has such an easy fix to such a painful alternative? Baffling.
Fancy grooming product you secretly want to be gifted: Whatever tools and tricks my barber uses - I want them at my disposal every day.
Matt Field, Senior Operations Associate
Hometown: London UK, although my parents are from SoCal originally
Unofficial job: Fantasy football expert and Dunkin Donuts liaison
Fun Fact: I once had 16 teeth pulled in one day. I’m pretty sure most normal people don’t even have 16 teeth total.
Beauty product that you find most baffling: Facial masks - mysterious and terrifying.
Fancy grooming product you secretly want to be gifted: Molton Brown shaving cream.
