Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work at 1Password? Or wanted to know the career paths that other people followed before taking a job here? You’re not alone!
In this blog series, we’re sharing what it’s really like to work at 1Password. To do this, we sat down and talked to team members from across our more than 900-strong organization, including engineering, human resources, and customer support. You’ll learn about the journeys that each person took to 1Password, as well as their their current role and day-to-day responsibilities.
Today, we’re chatting with Allie Weiner, who leads our Account Management (mid-market) team at 1Password!
Why did you join 1Password, and how did you end up here?
Back in October 2020 I was searching for my next role. A former colleague (and now friend of mine!) had just joined 1Password and had nothing but brilliant things to say about the organization and the direction it was heading in.

After doing my research and having some honest and in-depth conversations with 1Password’s leaders, I was even more certain that this is where I wanted to take the next step in my sales career.
What’s your current role, and what are your day-to-day responsibilities?
I currently oversee one of our account management teams looking after the mid market segment. I have two team leads who are direct reports plus a team of 13 sales reps. My day-to-day responsibilities include managing the team’s pipeline, providing an accurate forecast to upper management, getting creative with different sales strategies and offering valuable advice on tactics.
I keep a close eye on the team’s performance, provide coaching where needed and identify any knowledge gaps and areas for development. I make every effort to lead with empathy and foster a supportive team culture to inspire peak performance.
What’s your favorite 1Password memory?
This isn’t much of a 1Password memory but more of an overall sentiment. I received incredible support from 1Password the moment I announced I was expecting my first child. I was immediately assured they would accommodate my needs during this exciting time in my life. This unwavering support alleviated any anxiety I had about balancing my professional responsibilities with impending parenthood and it reinforced my sense of belonging within the organization.

Quick! You’re boarding a plane and you can only bring one item on your trip. What is the one thing you can’t live without?
If my son was with me on the plane, my one item would be his stuffed hippo. The entire plane and I wouldn’t want to witness or hear the repercussions if we left Hippo behind! Fun fact: Hippo was actually given to us by one of my 1Password teammates!
Any fun personal plans for 2023? How are you planning to use your PTO?
This year I’m going on a trip that is the complete opposite to what I would normally do for a vacation. I was convinced (read: I was told) to go on a golf trip with my partner and his family.
We’re heading to the east coast for four nights to a beautiful golf course. Side note: this will be my second time ever picking up a golf club (apparently mini golf doesn’t count). Wish me luck! Or better yet … wish the people in the hole behind us luck!
