Women in Technology: Christine Clauder

Field Marketing Manager at Nexcess explains the freedom of ideas in tech, how she defines success, and how to bring the weirdness to life.

“I think the inequality that most women, myself included, have experienced has made us stronger, more empathetic, wiser and more capable. Our experience has prepared us to become incredible leaders within Nexcess that we have personally witnessed. I am proud to be part of such a unique and inspiring female-led environment.”

Of all the people she knows Christine Clauder considers her mother to be the most influential person in her career journey. “She didn’t allow me to use cool tech growing up,” says Clauder. So after I grew up and moved out of her, I put all of her time and energy into learning her skills to annoy her. It’s a joke.”

Born in Guam and raised briefly in Japan, Clauder was primarily raised in Houston, Texas., before moving to Kansas City for 20 years. “That’s where I put my roots,” she says. “So I moved back to Houston about 10 years ago, but I still consider myself a Kansas Cityr.”

Clauder says her mother’s intensity produced strong daughters., as well as — if not the way her mother would have hoped. “My mother is a small, scary Japanese woman. She tried to raise me with the Japanese mentality of always taking care of the ‘most man’. Yet, in spite of her chagrin, she She happened to raise me to be a strong, independent woman. Who doesn’t even care… Anyway, my mom is awesome, but I’m her complete opposite.”

She has always been interested in computers.So when her father gifted her a PC (gateway), Clauder began to devote all of her time and energy to learning everything she could about computers. “I never stopped,” she says.

Clauder started his career at a car dealership in Kansas City. “Initially, I did cold calls and sales calls, trying to convince the resellers that Facebook was the latest and greatest way to market to customers,” she says. “Twenty years later, I was hired as the Director of IT and Marketing for a large dealership in Houston. Among other things, we manage their computer systems, websites, Facebook and Twitter accounts.”

But she says she got a dog named #HankTheHellion to thank her for her work at Nexcess. “In short, I created a website about Hank, which was covered by a major news network, and my previous host just couldn’t keep up with the spike in traffic. My friend Samantha Mueller said she works for Nexcess so when she heard about my problem she told Nexcess to save my bacon and Migrate my site, they did it in less than 12 minutes. I got a job offer shortly after,” she says. “Personally, I think Nexcess loved all the F-bombs on the website.”

Currently, Clauder works at Nexcess as Field Marketing Manager. “It’s difficult to describe everything I do because my work continues to evolve with the needs of the company,” she says. “I am the funny voice of Nexcess Twitter. I am a glorified party planner. I’m a proud member of the Cultural Council who has no idea what I’m actually doing. In fact, let’s say I bring The Weirdness™️ to every team I have the honor of joining.”

What she loves most about her tech career is the freedom of ideas. “I feel energized when unique thoughts come to my mind.” “It’s completely different from the non-tech companies I’ve worked for in the past,” she says.

For Clauder, her proudest career achievements are summed up by boldness and tenacity. “Everything I learned came from sheer determination and curiosity. I am proud to be able to find my niche in the tech world just by being myself.”

Simply being herself is what she wants to bring to her work. “Everyone thinks I’m ‘funny’, but that’s just my way of trying to bring happiness into someone’s world,” she says. “I’m not a cook, I can’t grow any plants or vegetables, and I have absolutely no arts and crafts skills, so I do what I can to bring a little joy into people’s lives. Sometimes it means genuine compliments, sometimes it means being there to listen to them, and sometimes it means cracking a joke to make the person feel better. Humor is my love language. Ask the husband who stopped being funny about 10 years ago.”

For Clauder, success is like family to her. “my daughter A kind, intelligent, well-rounded adult and talented rollerblader with a huge following on social media,” she says. “My husband is a catch I can’t throw away. Despite all my flaws, my parents still value me, and I signed the papers to get my husband’s parents even in the inevitable divorce. My family is my success.”

And in her book, a good day is like curling up in bed with a cup of coffee that never ends, reading a horrible YA novel or binge-watching a 90s TV show. “If I hadn’t lived in the humid, mosquito-infested tropics of Houston, I would go to the golf course every weekend,” she says.

Clauder is excited about the leadership potential of women in technology. “I think the inequality that most women, myself included, have experienced has made us stronger, more empathetic, wiser and more capable,” she says. “Our experience has prepared us to be incredible leaders within Nexcess that we personally witnessed. I am proud to be part of such a unique and inspiring female-led environment.”

She encourages young women to look at their passions and consider how those passions can exist in tech. “Technology isn’t just data science or computer decomposition,” she says. “Technology connects the world and encompasses everything from marketing to coding to customer service and support. Don’t be afraid of the word ‘skill’ because of its outdated definitions. From email and texting to social media, writing papers and reading news online, you are already embracing technology in your everyday life. Conceptualize how your hobbies and interests can merge with your skills.”

Her advice for women just starting out in the field is to do it. “If you have a slight interest in the tech industry, find a niche, but don’t stick to just the job description,” she says. “Find a place where your talents serve both you and the company. Your company will find value in you the first time you value yourself. Also adopt a shelter animal. It probably won’t help, but it will definitely not hurt and your life will be enriched.”

Clauder can be seen running in Houston for coffee and crab legs with her family and Harley Davidson.
