Birchbox wouldn’t be here without our talented tech team and we’re excited to introduce the newest addition—Mike! Coding may make our head spin, but for Mike it’s a way of life. He spent his early years writing BASIC code on a C64 and forcing his younger siblings to organize their Legos into groups based on color and function. Several years later, he graduated from Cornell with a BS in Industrial Engineering and the rest is history. Say hello – and coincidentally happy birthday! – to this tech guru.
