Joel started Buffer to solve a personal need and is super focused on making users happy.
Straight from Joel: Since starting Buffer in my bedroom in the UK, I've been blown away that hundreds of thousands of people find the product useful to share the great content they find. Our complete focus is on creating both a fantastic product experience and a service experience people are amazed by, so I spend a lot of my day thinking about how we can push forward in these areas. I also do whatever is necessary: whether it is hacking on the web app, learning to code Android, writing a blog post, talking with users, or doing admin tasks.
Leo joined Joel at a crucial time where Buffer was starting to show signs of great early success.
Straight from Leo: I'm simply doing everything I can to spread the word about Buffer in an authentic way, so that we can help more people discover a smarter way to share their updates to Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and more. I love talking to people and I enjoy handling the community naturally forming around Buffer. With regards to the product, I strive to answer lots of user emails daily to provide Carolyn, Sunil, Joel and Andy with insights from various user experiences so we can make it more intuitive for you to use Buffer.
Carolyn helps people use Buffer by answering questions via email, Twitter, and Facebook, as well as through Buffer's email marketing.
Straight from Carolyn: I feel truly grateful anytime a customer reaches out to us because it gives us an opportunity to learn something about our product or simply talk to someone really darn cool. I love the warm-fuzzies that come from helping people use Buffer in a more awesome way. Besides Buffer coworkers and customers, the things that make me happy usually include a sport (tennis, lacrosse, frisbee, you name it) or a very hot tea with honey.
Sunil is also a full-stack hacker at Buffer, who works on ops, metrics, the web, and the Android app.
Straight from Sunil: I live to build things that makes life a bit easier. Working on Buffer has been incredibly rewarding. From making Buffer a pocket's reach away with the Android app, to ensuring the infrastructure is robust and performant, it's been a lot of fun so far. I love to hack on hardware, software and everything in between. When I'm not building things, you can probably find me playing ultimate frisbee, watching college basketball and football, or drinking dark roast coffee.
Andy is the chief iOS guy at Buffer, working to make Buffering on the go easier for you.
Straight from Andy: I like to keep up to date with the latest iOS developments and hack at them, whether its at Buffer or on my own personal apps. At Buffer I build Buffer for iOS as well as integrations with other great apps we support for sharing to Buffer. In my spare time I hack away on Magic Bean, a iOS app I built. I also love to fuel my coffee addiction in various coffee shops.
Michelle is in charge of making sense out of the data to help Buffer grow.
Straight from Michelle: It has been an incredible journey so far to be part of a passionate and talented team. I enjoy being able to flex both my qualitative and quantitative muscles everyday to help grow Buffer. Dealing with customers is a powerful way to get insights to how users interact with our product, while diving straight into the data gives a birds' eye view of where our growth is trending. In my spare time, I love practicing yoga, which I treat as moving meditation, writing blog posts and traveling.
Colin is the chief back-end guy at Buffer, ensuring that the bits you don't see run as quickly and smoothly as possible.
Straight from Colin: I love to solve problems. I'm never happier than when I can dig into a problem and find a solution to make somebody's life a little bit better. That's the great thing about software development - it's all about solving people's problems. When I'm away from my desk you'll probably find me running the streets of Cambridge or relaxing with a nice pint of beer.
Åsa answers any questions people have about Buffer via email, Twitter, and Facebook to deliver happiness.
Straight from Åsa: It is a great feeling to be working alongside such an awesome and inspiring team whose main purpose is to deliver happiness. I love to be able to offer people that little extra bit of happiness when helping them use Buffer and I find these interactions to be the best resource to turn Buffer into an even more amazing tool. When I'm not delivering happiness for Buffer you'll find me disengaging from the online world by running on the beach or grabbing a coffee in one of Sydney's many awesome coffee shops.
Belle writes content for the Buffer blog and helps out with copywriting throughout Buffer.
Straight from Belle: I've been a writer for almost as long as I can remember (which is at about three years old, having paper and pencils strewn across my bedroom floor on a regular basis). It's a privilege to write content every day that's useful and interesting, both to me and our amazing readers. Whenever I'm not writing something new for the Buffer blog, I'm usually working on my startup, Hello Code, or taking a night off at the theatre.
Brian helps Buffer customers wherever they are in order to let them get back to their day happily.
Straight from Brian: The amazing thing about working at Buffer is that it is the combination of an elegant tool, dedicated teammates, and outstanding customers. It is a privilege to work with them all! When I'm offline, I'm probably strumming the guitar and singing songs with my family or brewing a nice strong pot of coffee.
Brian leads the design process at Buffer to make things beautiful and usable.
Straight from Brian: I've been designing for almost six years now, since I was in high school, and I've loved every minute of it. My path as a designer has taken me down several winding roads to end up here at Buffer where I have the opportunity to design for a product that reaches hundreds of thousands of people every month. When I'm not designing, you can find me going for a run or finishing out my last year of school at Baylor University!
Niel codes the front-end at Buffer, making sure all buttons, extensions and browsers behave splendidly.
Straight from Niel: Buffer has not only helped me tremendously in sharing my content online, but also inspired me with their amazing culture. I'm grateful that I can work at a company where their values and team members spur me to become a better person. I don't see Buffer as work, but rather a lifestyle. I've been doing front-end development for a short few years grabbing every opportunity to improve. Besides coding, I love learning languages, making music and soaking in the amazing variety of life.
Matt leads the design and development of the Buffer app for Android
Straight from Matt: I have always been fascinated with trying to build the perfect experience. As a designer and a coder, I strive to combine both disciplines to create things people will truly love to use. Android is my platform of choice and working on the Buffer app alongside such an awesome team of people is an incredible experience. When I'm not building apps, I am most probably brewing copious amounts of tea, cycling around in way too much lycra or spending time with my family.
