Tabler of the Week: Nick DeLessio


Why Do We Have a Tabler of the Week?

We periodically interview one of our amazing co-workers to highlight on our culture blog.  A great culture is 100% about the people that drive it.  We come from different places, backgrounds, and experiences and all add a lot of spice to this workplace.

What is your role at Social Tables?

I’m an Associate Product Manager working on our Internal Products team. We do sexy things like improve the company’s unit economics and keep our data pretty. And someday build robots that draw floor plans.

He’s also a member of Team Badass at ST.

What were you doing before you came to Social Tables?

I was studying at Georgetown University and working at the McDonough School of Business, a Social Tables customer. I worked closely with their event planning team, which is how I first learned about Social Tables. When I told them I wanted to go into tech after graduation they immediately started raving about Social Tables. That kind of excitement from a user was how I knew that Social Tables was where I wanted to be.

What do you like to do outside of work?

According to some of the photos I’ve selected for this blog post, I like to stand around with glasses of wine in my hand. And brunch with my fellow Tablers #brunchAndLearn. I’m also a big aviation geek and love to travel. I’m currently planning a trip to Asia this fall.

Beaches aren’t bad either 😉

Talk about your favorite Core Value:

Every Day Is A School Day. I have an awesome team that helps me learn something new every day, whether it’s something about our users and industry or a new Turkish word.

He’s also a prime example of It Takes a Village 🙂

Talk about your favorite Social Tables event:

Anytime my team demos something in front of the company. Seeing their hard work turn an idea into something real that gets people excited. It’s the coolest feeling in the world.

#STBocce is a thing he also enjoys 🙂

What makes you weird?

I suffer from a serious case of FOMO. I need to know what’s going on everywhere at all times. Which leads to a lot of random calendar stalking. It kind of freaks my boss out.

Doesn’t freak the rest of us out…we love brunch with Nick!
