Allie Ilagan, formerly head of marketing at the Wharton Social Impact Initiative, started a new job last week as the first marketing hire at a healthtech company called IncentFit, a New York-based outfit with a Philly outpost at Indy Hall.

The company, a team of six split between its two HQs, offers employers a corporate wellness benefits platform that pays employees cash rewards to exercise, get check-ups and add physical activities to their daily lives. Founded in 2013, the company has bootstrapped its way to a roster of 200 corporate clients.

“I am so excited about this next phase of my career; it’s exactly the kind of challenging, fast-paced content marketing that I was looking to explore,” said Ilagan, who welcomed a baby boy in December with husband Mikey Ilagan. “It’s a bonus that the company provides positive social value, in that it’s helping inspire (and reward!) people to live healthier and more active lifestyles.”

The narration of Ilagan’s final interview, from her newsletter Running Late, is scintillating. Here’s an excerpt:

Here’s what went into the preparation for this one interview:

  • Five (5) emails with my former colleague about whether I should ask for a break to pump or if I should mention that I just had a baby or if that would immediately discount me as a candidate.
  • Several back and forth planning calls with my mom about where and how she’d watch the baby (in a coffee shop four blocks from the office, by whatever Nonna magic she could summon)
  • $12 Center City parking
  • Strategic breastfeeding (in public!) before the handoff
  • Reminding my feet what heels are, and how one navigates historic Philadelphia cobblestone with minimal broken ankles
  • Ducking into a bathroom to put on my new blouse and blazer, which had been folded in a ziplock in my purse (to avoid being spit up on, natch)
  • Keeping it together throughout three hours of the most intense technical marketing questions I’ve ever experienced (and um, nailed it)
  • Keeping it together during the goodbye handshakes while I sweated and my chest ached
  • Running all the way back to the cafe where everything was literally just fine, he’s fine, he’s absolutely fine without you, he’s almost ready for college by now, he’s fine.

But what’s the On the Market portion, you ask? The company is looking for a full-stack software developer to be its seventh employee.
