Get to know Jonathan Svilar, Marketing Manager at 3Q Digital, working out of our Oakland office. Jonathan is currently referring to himself in the 3rd person because he’s also editor of this here blog!
What’s one marketing lesson you wished you had learned earlier?
Measure everything! It’s not enough to have a good idea. You need to prove that it works and is worth time/money.
What is your favorite thing to brag about at 3Q?
I get to bring my dumb little dog to work!
Who is the unsung hero of your team?
Hillary, by a wide margin. She’s an unstoppable marketing force.
Care to share your favorite spot to work from home?
My knock off Eames chair. I usually have to try to convince the dog to leave me alone. It’s right next to my stereo so I can listen to music while I work.
What does 3Q’s culture mean to you?
Work hard, and have freedom. Flexibility is awesome at 3Q, but you have to earn it first.
If you had to switch offices, which office would you pick and why?
I’ve worked out of 3 offices so far, so I suppose I’d give Chicago a shot, but only for the summer.
What trips have you gone on/do you plan to go on with your unlimited PTO?
My wife and I are planning our honeymoon in the next few months, and we’re going to China in the fall. Super excited to go and take lots of photos. And eat.
Would you rather fight 100 duck sized horses, or one horse sized duck?
I think I’d have better luck with 100 duck sized horses.
Hot dogs or hamburgers?
What’s your favorite thing on your desk?
I have a mini collection of Giants bobble heads. I sit across from Harrison (who’s a Dodgers fan) and now whenever he makes me angry I wave my 2014 World Series Flag and remind him that cars looked like this the last time the Dodgers won a World Series:
What is your favorite thing to do outside of work?
Record collecting, photography, Baseball, goofing off with the dog, reading, video games, and whiskey.
