If you’re ever at Birchbox HQ when the moon is starting to rise (and we hope you aren’t— you should be out grabbing a cocktail or something), chances are you’ll see a lone Ops Associate with long dark hair still hard at work. Alexandra, who started work in July when she was fresh out of college, is a super sweet New York native with a serious passion for bulldog puppies. It’s almost as serious as the Ops Team’s passion for her endless hoard of snacks.
Name/Title: Alexandra or Alex, Operations Associate (who doesn’t quite understand that she can leave the office before 9pm).
Hometown: New York, NY
Unofficial role: Birchbox Bodega, a.k.a Snack Hoarder. Although I get made fun of for this, when people need a snack they can’t find in our kitchen there’s a good chance they can find it at my desk. (Among many other things: I essentially have a second makeup kit, first aid kit, and could probably live in the office with just the products on my desk for days).
Fun fact: I was in Rome when Italy won the World Cup, and I was able to see the team as their bus drove through the city.
Beauty confession: I didn’t know what a primer was before working here, and now I am obsessed.
Currently loving: Youngblood Mineral Primer
Worth the splurge: A perfume/fragrance that you cannot get enough of, like Harvey Prince’s Eau Flirt.
Best beauty trick: After I apply my makeup, I use a long lasting makeup setting spray. It keeps my makeup on throughout the entire day and into the night!
