Operators Ep 15: Olivia Chen (Faire)


Olivia Chen is the Product Lead at Faire, an online wholesale marketplace, where she joined as the second full-time hire. Prior to joining Faire, Olivia spent time interning at Barclays and Bain & Co. after graduating from Duke University.

In this episode we talk about the myriad of projects that Olivia’s worked on at Faire, the advantages she’s seen come out of remote work, and why more supply is almost always better in a marketplace. She also shares her thoughts on the synergy of working with logical people, why she finds the fast paced world of Faire less stressful than consulting, and how she’s had to scale her communication methods as the company’s grown.

I hope you enjoy the show.
