  • What is your favorite thing about your job at SPOT?
    • I love the ideation process and finding a solution to a problem that many people have never encountered before. Every day is different and I love that part of it! There is also nothing better than working with individuals who are as hardworking and driven as I feel I am. There is nothing more exciting than attempting to solve a 50-75 year old universal problem.

Brandon Hairston- Director of User Happiness

  • Where did you grow up?
    • Right here in Boston. I lived in Hyde Park as a kid.
  • What was your major in college?
    • Business management and administration with a concentration in business law from Boston University.
  • What do you like to do when you’re not at work?I like long walks to help soothe my mind or planning drawing and playing my trumpet again after a long hiatus.
  • If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
    • My best bet would probably be Florence. I’ve always loved Italian culture and Florence is filled with so much history that my inner nerd can’t contain himself.  
  • What did you want to be when you were little?
    • I really wanted to be a psychiatrist so I’d be able to help make people happy simply through talking to them. Later I found out science wasn’t my strong suit, so I decided to just make people happy plain and simple.
  • What is your favorite thing about your job at SPOT?
    • Most people get frustrated when they look at their clock because they wish the day was over. At SPOT, I’m lucky if I even happen to notice the clock.
