What’s a Chief World Changer? An Omaze employee who goes above and beyond their daily work and embodies our company virtues (We Before Me, Grow Together, Take Ownership, Dream Giant, and Spread Joy).
Meet Julien. He’s one of our Product Managers and was nominated by his peers across the company to be recognized as Chief World Changer! Julien joined our team this past summer and hit the ground running without skipping a beat. In a relatively short period of time, he’s made a huge impact by improving our internal processes and being a champion for our customers.
Tell us a little bit about your role at Omaze.
I am a Product Manager that works with a team focused on improvements that have a direct impact on our community. The range of initiatives that we take on can be very broad, from fixing critical bugs that harm the on-site experience, to creating new features that help more people make an impact by donating to support a cause they care about.
In your opinion, what does it mean to be a world changer?
To me, it means actioning on small steps in focused areas where you can make an impact (no matter the scale) to help others.
What cause are you passionate about and why?
I’m passionate about environmental causes. I spend a lot of my time outdoors—most of my hobbies are outdoors—so I take responsibility for netting out my own impact on the environment plus some.
What do you like to do for fun?
I love to adventure in the mountains to go climbing, skiing or hiking. One of my favorite weekend trips is heading to the Eastern Sierra to ski one day in Mammoth and climb the other in Bishop. On a night in, I would be hard pressed to say no to playing a board game or a few (alright more than a few) games of FIFA with friends.
What’s one food you couldn’t live without?
Cheese. The smellier, the better.
And finally, what’s your dream Omaze experience? (You know we had to ask!)
Before I started working at Omaze, the first experience that I’d heard about, and subsequently entered, was to support Alex Honnold’s foundation and have a chance to climb with him for a day. That sounded pretty epic.
