What do you do in your new position at Roadtrippers?
Any number of tasks, from the basic (expense categorization, journal entries, etc.) to the complex (assisting with VC funding, HR functions, projections/forecasting, financial reporting).
 
What do you like best about this job?
The team. Roadtrippers is filled with intelligent, creative, forward-thinking people who offer a fresh perspective on how to create and run a successful company. From both the team and from my work, I learn something new all the time.
 
What's great about living/working in Cincinnati?
I love the different neighborhoods (OTR, Hyde Park, Oakley, etc.). I’ve lived in Cincinnati for three-plus years and I’m still finding new, awesome things to try all the time!
 
What part of town do you live in, and what do you most like about the neighborhood in which you live?
I live in Hyde Park, and the thing I like most is the “community-feel” of the neighborhood. I try to take advantage of all the great food and outdoor activity options the area has to offer—I highly recommend “Bonnie’s Bounty” at The Echo Restaurant—and it’s an easy, quick drive to get Downtown, as well.

What do you do in your new position at Roadtrippers?
I’m working on the Android application for Roadtrippers. This involves programming and testing the application, fixing any bugs that pop up and implementing new features. I’m currently the only Android developer, though I work closely with the iOS developers.  
 
What do you like best about this job?
The best part about my new job is the work environment. I work with a lot of extremely talented and passionate people, and the energy here is just fantastic. Though I’ve only been here a couple weeks, I already feel like a part of the team.
 
What's great about living/working in Cincinnati?
Downtown Cincinnati has some of the best places to eat that I’ve ever been to. From Findlay Market to the dozens of awesome restaurants down Vine Street, there’s no better place to get a bite to eat.
 
What part of town do you live in and what do you most like about the neighborhood in which you live?
I live in Ft. Mitchell, Ky., off Buttermilk Pike. I like being right next to the interstate because it cuts a good chunk of time off my drive.

What do you do in your new position as marketing communications manager at Ahalogy?
I develop and execute marketing and PR plans for the company, build company messaging, handle media and investor relations, and lead communications with our stakeholders and key influencers. 
 
What do you like best about this job?
What I love about my profession is that it combines two of my passions; I get to read and write every single day. What I love about Ahalogy is the culture that our founders have created. Every single employee has a say in how the company is growing. 
 
What's great about living/working in Cincinnati? 
Cincinnati is “right-sized.” It’s a big city with major institutions and companies, but not so big that you can’t make the personal connections with people and leaders that you need to succeed. 
 
What part of town do you live in, and what do you most like about the neighborhood in which you live? 
I live in Oakley and I love the location. I’m a short drive from all the restaurants, bars and entertainment that downtown and Over-the-Rhine offer, but can still take advantage of the walkability and locally owned small businesses in Oakley and Hyde Park.

What do you do in your new position at Roadtrippers?
It’s a startup! A bit of everything. We experiment. We fail. We learn. We repeat this until we hit on something. It’s like panning for gold. We are looking for those one or two nuggets of learning about our customer that lets us do Big Things. It’s fun!
 
What do you like best about this job?
Roadtrippers is about planning your “Great American Roadtrip." To plan travel is to dream. We’re a company of dreamers and misfits who love road travel; who’ve decided we can change for the better how people discover America. How cool is that?
 
What's great about living/working in Cincinnati? 
Cincinnati is so unique. Its influence on the rest of America is completely underrated. Yes, it’s an awesome place to raise a family. Cost of living is not crazy here. But with OTR, it’s finally attracting young folks who are craving a hip, urban environment. It’s been a missing piece of our puzzle that’s finally falling into place. We also have a parade for our baseball team every spring! Who does that?
 
What part of town do you live in, and what do you most like about the neighborhood in which you live?  
Mason. Yeah, OK. Suburblandia. But it’s great. I’ve been really impressed by the way they’ve managed the growth from being a very popular suburb. Ever been to the community center? Or the high school? Yeah, it’s big, but the level of services they offer is amazing. I’ve lived in Atlanta suburbs, and have seen how suburbs can really struggle with growth. Mason is a case study in how to manage it well. And the commute? Again, ever been in Atlanta traffic? The Mason-Cincy commute is nothing in comparison.

What do you do in your new position at Roadtrippers?
I work on Roadtrippers.com, our web application for planning road trips and discovering awesome places to visit.
 
What do you like best about this job?
How quickly we can add a cool new feature, or fix an obnoxious bug, and then get that improvement in front of our actual users. Users who are not shy about e-mailing us their opinions of our product. Before moving to Cincinnati, I worked for one company where it could literally take years for the work we did to end up in front of our customers. Here at Roadtrippers, it only takes a few hours or days.
 
What's great about living/working in Cincinnati? 
There is always something interesting going on, especially in the summer, when it seems like there is at least one festival or outdoor concert happening every single day.
 
What part of town do you live in, and what do you most like about the neighborhood in which you live? 
My wife and I moved downtown in June, and we love our location. We walk to Reds and Cyclones games, we walk to the Aronoff, we walk to Fountain Square, and we walk to bars and restaurants. Once it warms up, I will probably start walking to work. I feel a lot happier (and healthier) when I can walk to most of my daily activities. The only time I really need to drive anywhere is to buy groceries in Newport or Hyde Park.  As more people chose to move downtown, I'm optimistic that even that drive will one day not be necessary.

What do you do in your new position at Roadtrippers?
I work on the Roadtrippers web application, helping build out features and fixing bugs.
 
What do you like best about this job?
The new learning experiences, and the opportunity to be involved in a great product. 
 
What's great about living/working in Cincinnati? 
Being able to watch the city develop. It’s awesome to be able to see new shops, restaurants and bars pop up. It’s wonderful to be able to be a part of that, working at a local startup and helping fuel that growth.

What part of town do you live in, and what do you most like about the neighborhood in which you live? 
I live in Northern Kentucky, Fort Wright to be more specific. I really like the area that I live in. It’s a great location, close to just about everywhere I need to go. It’s close to work, only about a 15-20 minute drive to work.

Jobs powered by GigitJobs.com

What do you do in your new position at Roadtrippers?
A little bit of everything. I will play a key role in marketing and growth strategy/execution, support business development opportunities, and assist in recruiting and key team hires.
 
What do you like best about this job?
A combination of the team, interesting product, huge market opportunity and impact I can have right away. I also like knowing my efforts will have direct and noticeable results on the company as we continue to grow.
 
What's great about living/working in Cincinnati?
The shorter list is what’s not great! Cincinnati is the best, and also my home. The startup community is growing so quickly that it’s playing a huge role in reshaping the economy and, specifically, the downtown area. In addition, there’s so many young professionals always around that it’s hard not to have a good time at work or any nearby event. Not to mention, cost of living is insanely more affordable compared to other cities with similar startup opportunities.
 
What part of town do you live in, and what do you most like about the neighborhood in which you live?
I live downtown near OTR and also our office. Having grown up in the 'burbs, it’s been a bit of change for me. However, with all the new startups, bars, restaurants, shops, etc. opening up downtown, there’s always something fun going on. And my favorite is being walking distance to the Bengals and Reds stadiums, which allow me to cheer on my hometown teams!
