The Uncommon Life

Uncommon Personalities: Meet Cynthia Salim

January 6, 2014

Cynthia Salim

Cynthia Salim, UncommonGoods Outbound Warehouse Area Operations Manager
My hometown is…
Jakarta, Indonesia; Los Angeles, California; and Geneva, Switzerland. I’m a “Third Culture Kid!”

An uncommon fact about me…
I used to be a martial arts instructor and once choreographed for a stage production of Mulan.

My guilty pleasure is…
Being completely aimless on the weekends after many hours of sustained wakefulness in the warehouse.

I’m inspired by…
People who are resilient despite the odds.

My favorite process in the warehouse is…
Creating the precise, “locked-down” processes themselves. This year, I got to build the people processes and tech pieces that onboarded over 375 warehouse team members with my colleagues. Working with brilliant people to create something from scratch and refining the process as we go along is my favorite part of working here.

When I’m not working I’m probably…
Eating. The Outbound management team can attest to that.

Working at UncommonGoods, I’ve learned…
The elusive art of leading others–inspiring a shared vision, enabling others to act, developing people, providing constructive feedback, and leading a team in accomplishing complex tasks that serve team members and the company.

Would you rather… Be able to teleport anywhere at will, or be able to change any object into any other object (with the exclusion of changing things into teleporters)?

Teleport anywhere. I’d use it mostly to visit my friends in Switzerland and to get across the UG warehouse.
