I currently serve as head of marketing and product at Happie, an early stage HR and technology startup in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I’ve led our marketing efforts to fuel double-digit month-over-month growth among both, while optimizing our tactics, driving down costs and maintaining healthy unit economics for the business. I’m also driving our product roadmap through partnership with Happie’s senior leadership, hands-on UX / UI design of new product concepts, prioritization of features and functionality, and management of our engineering team.
Before Happie, I was a product marketing manager at Intuit QuickBase. I was responsible for managing all aspects of the QuickBase core platform go-to-market strategy, including our ongoing re-architecture rollout, positioning in the RAD (Rapid Application Development) market segment, pricing and competitive analysis, and bringing the voice of the customer into ongoing product roadmap discussions with product management colleagues.
Prior to joining Quickbase, I led marketing at Wigo, a social app startup. In less than six months, we garnered over 65,000 users at over hundreds of colleges across the United States. Before Wigo, I briefly consulted as a Senior Manager in the digital strategy practice of Acceleration Partners, helping clients with go-to-market digital strategy, search engine optimization & UX, site updates and re-launches, customer acquisition and retention, and overall digital strategy.
Before that, I founded Momba, which uses intelligent, customized vending machines to serve all sorts of “residential essentials” – from laundry detergent to computer chargers – to university dorm residents. Momba operates on 4 college campuses: Harvard, BU, Westfield State and UMass-Amherst.
Leading up to Momba, I worked at Bullhorn, the global leader in recruiting software. I joined Bullhorn to help launch Bullhorn Reach as the product’s marketing manager. I became the product’s first enterprise account executive as we began to monetize it, and served as its Evangelist to deepen its position as a thought leader in social media recruiting. I ended my time at Bullhorn as the company’s Social Media Evangelist.
Before Bullhorn, I worked in business development & strategy at Jack Morton Worldwide, a global brand experience agency. I received my Bachelor’s degree in philosophy and sociology from Harvard College. At Harvard, I co-founded and led The Harvard Voice as its publisher. I then toured cross-country as frontman of the band Big Time. In 2011, we released an EP (see below) as Mount Auburn.
I’m the happy husband of Heather Duque and proud father of Aurora and Ethan Duque.
