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.

Right now, I'm having a great time focusing on all things growth at Buffer. This includes working with the marketing team, the growth team, focusing on culture, business development tasks and hiring. 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 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.

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, and/or making medium roast coffee.

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.

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.

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.

People are incredibly talented and so stinkin' understanding. This has been my biggest takeaway since joining Buffer - both the people of the world who use Buffer and the team that creates and supports it. Even through computer screens I'm blown away by every one I have the chance to interact with and I think that's a bit of what Buffer is all about. The smile on my face continues when I'm climbing mountains, guzzling coffee and picking up sea shells.

Simply put, I enjoy people. Every interaction holds the potential for something special to occur. There is no hiding that Buffer is an amazingly powerful and useful tool. What I didn't fully realize is that Buffer is surrounded by such an amazing community of users and such an astoundingly awesome team. And, each day, I have the privilege to wake up and interact with both. It can't get any better! When away from Buffer, you would probably find me rolling around with my kids, hanging out with my lovely wife, or with my nose in a book.

We are so blessed at Buffer to have the community, users, and interactions that we do. Writing on the Buffer blog reminds me of this every day. Engaging with this community---its excitement for social, its wisdom, grace, and joy in conversations--- has been an incredibly rewarding experience. Same goes for my interactions with the Buffer team. I count it quite a privilege to write and share what I'm learning and discovering and to do so with such an amazing, happy group of people.

Being part of a team of such dedicated, talented people makes me glow with pride (I actually glow).

Born and Raised in Flanders fields, I found myself wondering at the age of 18th what I was going to study. I had been studying science and would love to dive into the world of communication. Three years later I graduated and got my journalism degree. During the course I developed a keen interest in photography, graphic and webdesign. Wanting to get my design skills to the next level I studied Interactive Multimedia Design that introduced me also to the engineering side of product design. I found my love Jip in The Netherlands and moved from Antwerp, Belgium to Rotterdam in 2015. Being a freelance interaction designer I found it hard to build long term sustainable relationships with clients and their products. That’s why I wanted to join a product design team. My professional life is a huge part of my identity and that’s why I like to spend it with a wonderful company: Buffer!
