Brian Merz recently joined Kipsu's Engineering team! Before Kipsu, Brian was working in mobile app development and running a small farm. Outside of work, you'll find him snowboarding, hiking, standup paddling, traveling, and farming. We asked Brian a few questions about his first week at Kipsu.
What drew you to Kipsu in contrast to other companies?
The good natured and dedicated culture of the team. The chance to work with a small company on the ground level of their mobile platforms.
What were some things you noticed about the Kipsu team during your first week?
Everyone I met was so generous with their time and knowledge. The team made sure I felt welcomed and had the information I needed to get started.
What challenges are you looking forward to tackling in your work at Kipsu?
Creating world-class mobile platforms to extend the usability of Kipsu's platform and increase the value of our platform for all of our customers.
What is your favorite Kipsu core value and why?
Never Be Satisfied - this is a value I hold dear because it is a reminder that you can always improve yourself or your situation.
If you could pick any person for a chat over a shared dinner, who would you pick and why?
Chef Gordon Ramsey. I'd like to hear him critique the food in person.
