Meet the Team: Sam

Hello and welcome to our Meet the Team series, in which we aim to give you deeper insight into the minds and personalities of those who make up this eclectic, close-knit group. We are developers, marketers, and technical support engineers, and at work we craft everything from Microsoft reporting APIs to mobile email applications. And outside of work? Let’s just say racing against the machine during hackathons, building architecturally sound beer towers during retros, and paddling down the Charles during the warmer months are simply the beginning.
Meet Sam — forever in pursuit of the unique, beginning an Icelandic adventure, undercover ninja (like Tamar).

1. What do you do? 

At work I wear many hats, but my primary role is as a software developer on our product OfficeWriter.

I have quite an eclectic taste, and I generally rely on Pandora to pick my music for me. However right now I am listening to- Suzy – Caravan Palace

3. If you were a beer what would you be and why?

While not a single beer, I would be a Black and Blue which is a drink made up of two beers: Blue Moon and Guinness. It’s a good representation of the Gemini that I am.

Hacker News – it’s a great way to get a snapshot of what is going on in the IT world.

6. Describe your personal style in one word.


7. What is the last thing you bought?

Camping gear for my trip to Iceland next month.

8. What are your biggest pet peeves?

Creaky floor boards. They just don’t build things like they used to.

When my cat dresses up as a French maid on Halloween.

Hippomonstrosesquippedaliophobia – I apologize if you suffer from this.
