Contrary to popular belief, we’re not all robots here at ecoATM HQ. We’re actual humans, here to make it fast, easy and convenient to recycle your old phones, MP3 players and tablets for cash. Take a minute to sneak a peek behind the kiosk and get to know our team!
Name: Josie Markee
Title: Associate Product Manager
Stuff you do inside the ecoATM office:
I was recently promoted into a product management role, which includes working with various departments to create functional specs that improve their tools, as well as seeing these projects through development and implementation. Previously, I was working in logistics and primarily in charge of the coordination of deploying new ecoATM kiosks.
Stuff you do outside the ecoATM office:
I have quite the travel bug, so any time off I can get is spent outside the US. I’ve been to all 50 states and about 40 different countries. I also love snowboarding, soccer and really anything outdoors.
Did you ever own a phone that you’d be embarrassed to carry around now?
I used to love my bright red LG Chocolate. I thought it was the coolest phone ever.
If you could pick one robot from pop culture history to hang out with, which one would you pick?
Definitely one of the transformers. Preferably one that could fly and take me somewhere. My husband would say the terminator in a heartbeat though!
Other than recycling your gadgets, what else do you do to help the environment?
I make sure to recycle at home. I also attend ecoATM volunteering events, including beach cleanups.
What’s your favorite thing about living in San Diego?
That we have the best of both worlds. We are right on the ocean, but only a few hours away from the mountains. So many activities!
Whats the one piece of tech that you couldn’t live without?
My iPhone - it’s permanently attached to me.
Go-to karaoke song?
Yikes…I can’t sing to save my life, so I try to avoid any and all karaoke.
Favorite pizza topping.
