Meet Scott Aument, our Account Manager at Tapjoy’s New York office.
What makes Tapjoy a great place to work?
Culture. Working remotely can sometimes be a challenge and doesn’t work without great people. I’ve had the opportunity to work with the best team at Tapjoy over the last year. Whether it’s answering the phone early in the morning for an urgent east coast request or helping with questions late at night these guys are the best in the biz. It makes working 3,000 miles away from each other not seem as far. And when we do get the opportunity to see each other we always have the best time. Work is only as good as the people who do it with you.
What motivates and challenges you to do your best work?
Looking to grow every day is something that motivates me on a daily basis. There is nothing worse than feeling stuck or bored within a role. Tapjoy is an ever-changing dynamic ecosystem where there is always something to learn. There is always something that you can become better at and there is always someone who will help you achieve that goal. Continuing to improve yourself as a professional is what drives me while others around challenge me to be my best self. This competitive nature is something that I believe is necessary in a successful business environment in order to achieve at a high level.
What is one important skill every person should have?
Believe that every person should be confident when speaking to a group. Whether it’s at a large meeting in front clients, a casual lunch meeting, or out at a client happy hour. Being able to display confidence to those around you helps create a lasting and trusting relationship. When you are confident in yourself then that also shows confidence in your product. Some of the best working relationships I’ve had have been built in this way.
What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not working?
Now that we are in the summer months, I love to get out and play golf as much as I can. Whether that’s out on Long Island, back home in CT with my Dad, or traveling with a couple buddies to play. Chelsea Piers outdoor driving range is definitely on the list of things to do this summer. Big fan of the NYC rooftop bars for Happy Hour or eating outside on a restaurant patio.
Where do you want to go on your next vacation?
My next planned vacation in a couple days in Ocean City Maryland I’ll be down there for 3 days and 54 holes of golf. Other than that, I really need to get over to Europe since I have never been and just recently got my first passport (I’m looking at you London Team). Possibly an Island vacation as well later in the year, the beaches in New York just don’t cut it.
