Get to know PickTrace Implementations Team Lead, Max Marchand!


  • Grew Up In: Monterrey, Mexico, on the northeast side of Mexico – about a 2hr drive from the Texas border
  • Currently Lives In: San Francisco, CA
  • Star Sign: Taurus
  • Favorite food: It’s changed since becoming a vegetarian 2 years ago, it used to be steak and sushi, but now I just love anything that’s holistically nutritious – carbs, protein, fat – just a complete, and balanced meal
  • Favorite City: The most magical place I’ve been to is a town called Oye in Norway
  • What book are you reading: I’m reading the Srimrad Bhagavatam, it’s a vedic text. A  12-part super epic ‘encyclopedia of spiritual knowledge’ 


What’s your favorite part of working in Implementations?

  • It’s all the people that I’ve met – each project brings with it between 3-10 people that you meet, not including the field
  • I’ve met 100s of people working with PickTrace, you develop unique relationships with each one
  • I’ve learned a lot about myself by meeting so many people

When you were in school, did you envision this kind of career for yourself?

  • I’ve never known the answer to that, I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up
  • All my life I’ve been good at communication, synthesizing information – so customer onboarding came naturally to me and I’m just going along with it
  • When I was a really little kid I wanted to be an astronaut

What’s a favorite memory from your time at PickTrace?

  • I had a really fun time at 2023’s Kick Off in San Diego at the Double Deuce country bar – I let myself a little more loose and I remember looking around feeling so grateful that I could have fun being exactly who I am with my coworkers – I was really appreciative of that. 
  • Also, anytime I’m on the road with someone – driving on the middle of nowhere and getting to know them is always cool and intimate

What are your hobbies and passions outside of work? 

  • I like to play tennis, golf and to be outside as much as I can
  • My girlfriend and I like to go to restaurants with friends
  • Traveling
  • Reading
  • I help cook and clean at the spiritual community I’m part of
  • I play video games with my friends
  • Watch One Piece 

Do you have any guiding principles that you live by?

  • The first is that “more than in God, you must believe in yourself”
  • The second is that “The power of God trumps all the other powers”

If you were a fruit or vegetable what would you be and why?

I would be a potato – the world’s best vegetable. They are versatile, nutritious, easy to grow, and they last a long time. They are a lifeline to society much like grain is. Long live potatoes.
