Josh Izzard – Data Scientist/Analyst

What’s the coolest project you’re working on?

Personalizing a customer’s onsite experience to give the customer the tools to make better decisions. We’re leveraging really granular and interesting data sources, using cutting edge modeling techniques like contextual multi arm bandits and random forests, and it has huge strategic and bottom line impact potential across the organization.

What do you love most about your role?

For me it’s my team. They are brilliant, hardworking, and just fun people who push me and each other every day to do better. Ric likes to say we’re a team not a family, and I feel very aligned to that: we hold each other accountable and push for high performance. It’s very motivating to work with people like that.


Celio Reyes – Associate Software Engineer

What do you love most about your role at RV?

I love that I am able to help others grow in their career while at the same time driving my career forward.

(Also, I love the cheap food.)


Shane Zacour – Sales Associate

This is a really competitive, fast-paced work environment that’s both fun and challenging. On top of learning (and applying) sales skills every day in my core job function, the sales associate program also offers professional development opportunities in technology, digital marketing, and other functions. I have had numerous opportunities to meet face to face with members of leadership throughout RV, and was even recently invited to share some of what I’ve learned in my time so far with the second SAP cohort on a career development panel.

What do you love most about your role at RV?

As a former college athlete, I love the team dynamic that comes with working at Red Ventures. My sales team is made up of some of my best friends, and I can honestly say my coworkers and leadership team make it easy to look forward to coming into work each day.


Elizabeth Segarra – Senior Copywriter

As a senior copywriter at Red Ventures, my days typically include writing new promotional content for a homepage, writing an email newsletter, writing a blog post about a new product, developing a content strategy for a new website, whiteboarding a new page with my designer, and anything else that pops up that day. I also helped found our RedTalks team, which brings in external speakers to inspire RVers. This year speakers have included Larry Fitzgerald (NFL player), Erskine Bowles (venture capitalist and former UNC President), and Howard Schultz (former Starbucks CEO).

What do you love most about your role at RV?

I get to work with super creative people every day! I also love seeing the results of our creative work, thanks to our data tracking and super smart analysts.


Heather Buchma – UX Designer

What’s the coolest project you’re working on? I’m working on a methodology of how we approach large projects across our partnerships and businesses, called Co-Creation. This process brings together team members of different disciplines and backgrounds to work together in crafting better solutions. It helps create alignment during the creation process, sparks new ideas, and gets teams communicating and collaborating in new ways.

What do you love most about your role at RV?

As a UX Designer, I love that I am able to work with many different partners and different teams across the company. Our UX Team is a global resource, so we work across multiple teams and plug in on larger projects and complex user flows. There is always a new challenge to solve!
