Dan Magalhaes

Stax Research Associate, 2016-2017

What was your background prior to Stax and how did you find Stax?
My role as a Research Associate at Stax began after I graduated with my bachelor’s degree from Quinnipiac University. With only a few internships under my belt, after undergrad I knew a start in consulting would help steer what it was I wanted to do in my career. After some research within the Boston area, I came across the position and applied online.

What was your most memorable experience at Stax?
There were many great memories that stick out to me when looking back at my time with Stax. Christmas party at Park Plaza Castle, watching the Boston Marathon (considering that the office is on the finish line!), the NE Patriots championship parade from the best view on Boylston, after-work drinks at the Charlesmark, and lunches in Copley Square.

What is your current position?
I’m currently pursuing a master’s degree in management at Nova School of Business and Economics in Lisbon, Portugal. This summer, I will start working for Unbabel, an AI tech start up here in Lisbon, within their product and partner marketing teams. My role will be to develop and execute integrated marketing strategies to fuel awareness, build pipeline, and drive scale with Unbabel’s partner ecosystem.

How did your time at Stax help prepare you for your current role?
Stax was an ideal role for me right out of school. I was totally unsure what I wanted to do with my career and the RA position allowed me to discover what I did and did not like. I worked on due diligence projects that stretched all industries from CPG to cyber security to construction to tech. After several projects over the course of a year, I jumped into an account strategy role for Market Track (now Numerator), an ad tech company in New York, before deciding to go back to graduate school.
