The people make the product. Taxi wouldn't be as good as it is without the awesome team driving it along. We'd like to introduce you to one of the leadership team (and co-founder); Will Lahr!
What does the Chief Technical Officer do at Taxi?
I look after the product, and make sure we are doing our utmost to deliver the best experience to our users. My team design and build the product, and look after technical operations. I spend a lot of time talking with other teams in Taxi and our customers so that we can make good decisions when building the product.
What have you learnt whilst at Taxi?
I've learnt a lot about the email marketing industry and the people in it. I was surprised at how difficult it can sometimes be for marketers to carry our even the simplest of tasks, and how much they achieve despite this.
What is the best thing about working at Taxi?
We've been really lucky and found a great team who work well together - ambitious but also friendly.
How about some personal questions? Favourite food and/or drink?
Pasta. I feel I could live entirely on pasta (although perhaps this isn't good nutritional advice).
Favourite place to visit?
I love New York City for its energy. Taxi is based in London and NYC has that same energy and excitement that you only find in a few big international cities. The food is great too.
'Facts not opinions' - David Kirkaldy. This quote is carved above the door of the world's first purpose built testing works in Southwark.
You've got a day off! What will you do with it?
My tastes have changed little since I was an 8 year old. I like boats and castles. I'm more into good food now though.
Tell us something interesting about yourself...
I once had a part time job shovelling giraffe poo at London Zoo.
