Since starting Buffer from my bedroom in the UK, it's been incredibly fun to build it into a powerful social media tool used by hundreds of thousands of people. We're also trying to create one of the most interesting and fulfilling places to work, so I spend a lot of my time thinking about company culture. My work is split between growing the company and working with the team on all areas of product, engineering and customer happiness. I also love to exercise, travel, and help other startup founders.

I also enjoy sharing everything we learnt throughout the Buffer journey in videos and blogposts. Besides Buffer, recently I also discovered meditation and strength training, which make up a big focus of my current personal development.

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.

When I started at Buffer, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I've always loved building things from scratch to make lives easier, and when I joined I started helping out with the first Buffer Android app. More than two years later I find myself balancing work across coding on the backend/ops, hiring to grow our awesome team, and helping to solve challenges like 'what does a compensation system look like among a completely self-managed team?'. I've loved every minute working on Buffer. When I'm not working, I'm spending time with Avanti (my wife), watching college sports, or dabbling with latte art.

Being part of the Happiness Team has given me the opportunity to partner with some of the kindest, most gracious, and talented folks I've ever met in our work to provide the best possible support experience to our community. When not Buffering, I can be found running the Labrary, an innovation lab + school library program for middle school students.

I love all things tech and product and love the opportunity we have at Buffer to give our customers superpowers with their message!
Product to me means everything from doodling an interface to talking to customers about what we might build next - the common thread being that we aim to solve problems for you in the simplest way possible!

Born and raised in beautiful Cape Town, South Africa 😃 I studied philosophy and economics for my undergrad and was lucky enough to experience living in London when I did a masters at LSE (in managerial economics). I taught myself to code when I moved out to Silicon Valley and started off freelancing before joining a cool SA startup, TravelGround/LekkeSlaap, working remotely. Now my husband Justin and I are lucky enough to live in our ultimate happy spot, Vancouver, BC, where I hope to become a great skier! I find learning incredibly motivating, appreciate a hipster coffee shop and am an aspirational urban farmer, in our apartment :) I’m incredibly grateful to be have a chance to be part of the Buffer journey, working with my dream team!

I’m a father, a maker, designer and entrepreneur. At Buffer I'm currently focused on building and growing Respond. Everyday I'm incredibly thankful and humbled to be working with such an amazing and talented team and incredible customers. When not working, my wife and I love to travel (having eaten though 13 countries so far)! I grew up in Seattle, went to school and lived in San Diego (where I met my wonderful wife), moved to New Zealand for a year (because, why not?), returned to the US and lived in Boulder for bit before returning to the Pacific Northwest. In a past life I was an artist in the video game industry. Oh, and I love to home brew some delicious beer!

Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. I have a background in web development and digital marketing. I set up a small business based around digital marketing shortly before joining Buffer. I found myself wandering away from digital marketing, as I was keen to offer assistance to other businesses in any way I could. All I’ve ever really wanted to do is build a career helping people, and Buffer allows me to do that on such a large scale. I'm so grateful that I get to spend my days connecting with our amazing customers and working towards providing them with an amazing experience with Buffer.

It's such an honor to be able to support this wonderful team in bringing happiness to our amazing customers and community 😃 Aside from gushing about Buffer, I often spend my time doing a session of HIIT, indulging my inner bookworm, reflecting on some philosophy, or having a good laugh! 😊

I am happiest when I get to collaborate with a passionate group of humble people on a product I love, and I feel fortunate to be a part of Buffer, where putting customers and employees first is a core tenet of our culture. I get to work on a variety of projects to help grow Buffer's business and help Buffer become data-driven. I love philosophizing over tech, startups, venture capital, and data 😊! I also quite enjoy a good game of Cricket and a hot cup of Tea!

I focus on all things press related at Buffer and am so happy to be a part of sharing the Buffer values through our story. I fell in love with Buffer as soon as I discovered it in 2012, besides being a product I use on a daily basis, the culture of positivity, transparency and self-improvement has resonated with me from the start. Originally from Canada, I’ve also lived in Germany, Colombia and the U.S. and plan to keep traveling and working remotely around the world. When I’m not packing my bags or working on Buffer PR, you can find me doing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, reading, drinking tea and spending time with the people I love. 😊

Buffer is my second family! It's incredible how everyone is so passionate about our vision. It's the most positive team I could ever ask for! I've been a Buffer user for a long time and now having this amazing opportunity to work on something that I personally use is priceless! Super excited to help build Buffer for our customers and make it more awesome! Outside of work I love coffee, soccer and building side projects that people would love!

I'm fortunate to have the opportunity to focus on supporting our CEO with logistics, scheduling, and all sorts of other cool projects. I truly have found Buffer to be one of the most incredible companies to work for, built on a foundation of values I have so much respect for. The environment is so positive and the team is like family. When I'm away from my laptop, I'm enjoying the beautiful landscape and beaches of California with my husband and two kiddos.

I am absolutely thrilled to be working with Buffer & so grateful to be a part of such an incredible team. I currently live in a tiny tropical town in Far North Queensland, Australia. I have been in love with tech all my life and couldn't believe how perfect the Happiness Hero role description was for me. It felt like such an awesome fit! I get a great sense of joy and satisfaction out of helping and teaching other people. (I was actually a high school teacher right before joining Buffer!) Most of the day, you'll find me hanging out on Twitter, so if you see Buffer's tweets signed off with my name, you'll know I'm the one you're chatting with!

I grew up moving around a lot and attending many different schools - left Mexico when I was 9 and then hopped around Louisiana (great food and music), Texas (NASA!), Colorado (the Rockies!), and now California! I want to explore the world and try as many new experiences as possible. These are a few of my favorite things: being outdoors in any capacity, soccer(!), martial arts (I’m currently learning WingChun - just in time for Ip Man 3!), drawing (I hope to finish a graphic novel), reading, and becoming a somewhat competent drummer. I hope to experience living in many different cultures and I’d love to learn a third language (at least). I also unashamedly love Avatar: The Last Airbender. So excited for all the things we'll accomplish together!

I became a Buffer fan the moment I first read the Open blog, and then fell in love with the product shortly after. Being part of this wonderful team is a dream come true! I love helping customers to reach their social media goals and solve their challenges. When I'm not on my laptop, I'm probably exploring a new place to eat, reading a good book, spending time with family and friends, or playing outside with my husky!

I was born and raised in Southern California and Hawaii. Back in 2011 while I was working as a Social Media Manager, I stumbled across Buffer. I knew in an instant Buffer was an incredible tool that would help our clients rock it on social media. Several year down the road, I stumbled across Buffer's blog and I quickly fell head over heels in love with the culture and values. Fast forward to now, I'm so humbled and grateful to be working alongside some incredibly talented people I have a background in social media, fashion, marketing, advertising and customer support. When I'm not helping Buffer's customers you can find me at your local coffee shop, soaking up some sun on the beach or catching some waves, hanging out with my amazing family & friends, going on a hike with my dog Buddy, and hunting for the perfect burrito.

I feel immensely fortunate to work for Buffer. Ever since stumbling upon our blog many moons ago, I had been drawn to Buffer's values, culture, and team. Occasionally, I still pinch myself in disbelief. I can't believe I work with my company crush! I was born in Manila, Philippines, raised in Jakarta, Indonesia, and now live in Vancouver, Canada. I grew up as a "Third Culture Kid", and would describe myself as a life-long learner who finds happiness in experiences and helping others. My previous roles were in marketing, communications and business development, mostly in the technology and startup scene. Outside of Buffer, I'm usually exploring places near and far, spending time outdoors, reading a good book, writing, volunteering in the community, or playing hockey. I'm excited to have the opportunity to meet and help our amazing customers!

I feel so incredibly grateful to be on this Buffer journey and to be working alongside so many wonderful people. It truly brings me great joy spreading kindness and supporting the Buffer team. When I’m not catching up with my fellow Bufferoos, I love exploring new cities and tackling DIY projects. I also enjoy picking up a pair of binoculars every once and awhile to pour over the beautiful night sky!
