One of the perks of Upwork is that it’s not dependant on face-time, so her day isn’t structured by pointless meetings. Ally leads the Demand Generation Team, which focuses on content marketing and ad automation—and recently onboarded the Sales Development Team. Meetings are considered opportunities for discussion and to problem-solve any issues.
