SVP, Video Infrastructure Software Cablevision Systems
Mitchko-Beale oversees the software infrastructure development for new consumer-facing technologies. In this role, she drives critical functions of technical product definition, engineering development and architecture around the backend platform for a converged consumer media navigation and consumption experience. “I enjoy working on new things as well as constantly working to make existing products and services better,” she says.
What’s your favorite part of your job?
The best part of being in technology is that the job is never the same. I find it very rewarding to work with teams of people who know how to take ideas and turn them into products and systems.
How do you define success in the workplace?
The fact that after 15 years I still wake up every day enthusiastic about coming to work is my measure of success.
Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance?
I do not look at it as a balance. Balance implies that if you spend more time or energy on one side the other side suffers. The way I have managed my career and at the same time raised three children is to maintain an integrated life approach. In practice this just means to keep your priorities straight and to be present wherever you are, at work or at home. This has helped me to never feel like I missed out on something or didn’t give it my all.
