We're super excited to welcome Molly Wolfberg to the Wistia team! She'll be helping us get to know our customers even better as a user researcher. Originally from Connecticut, she's joining us after two years at nearby HubSpot.
Read on to learn more about what Molly loves about user research, what she was up to before joining the team, her favorite Vine video, and her super cute dog.
What's most exciting to you about doing user research?
Getting to know the customers who use the Wistia product. Each user heard of Wistia, uses the product, works with their videos and makes videos in a different way, and it's super exciting and exhilarating to learn about the process of all different types of our customers.

I was at HubSpot doing user research for 2 years, started a blog with my UXSister Rachel, and attended UX Bootcamp at Bentley College. Outside of work, I got a puppy, spent lots of time on the Cape, and ate a ton of donuts.

What's your favorite liquid?

Show and tell: share a video that you like!
I'm one of the only remaining Vine users (besides teenage girls) so I'll have to direct you to one of my favorite 6-second pieces of gold:
What's a song you're loving right now?
