It’s time to meet some members of the Osper family 😎
In this series of blog posts I’ll be talking to different members of the Osper team, so that you can hear a little more about who’s creating the Osper that you guys love and use every day!
Read on to find out more about Macey, one of our developers. I interviewed her to find out some more about why she joined Osper and which pet she’d most love to have 😉
Hi Macey, how are you doing today?
Doing great! Just soaking up the January sunshine 😉
Can you tell us a little bit about where you’re from and what led you to London?!
I’m from a small town outside Sacramento, California in the US, and I’ve been working in San Francisco for several years. When I was about 13, my parents took me on holiday to London, and I fell in love with it. It’s so fast-paced and full of character. It felt like the center of the world! Last Summer, I decided to spend time studying and exploring in London. Not long after, I met Osper, and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work for an exciting company in one of the most exciting cities in the world!
Sounds great! I’d love to go to San Francisco! Can you tell us a bit about your role at Osper?
I’m a junior software developer. That means I get to work on updates and improvements to the Osper website and app, plus some behind-the-scenes tools that make Osper run smoothly (hopefully)!
Amazing. So what have you got planned for today work wise?
It’s a secret! But it involves birthdays. 😉
What is it that you like most about working at Osper?
As a junior developer, I learn a ton every day from people with much more experience than me. I’d say that’s the best part – getting measurably better at my job all the time! 🙂
Before you worked here what did you do?
Before Osper, I worked in Finance & Operations for a San Francisco company called Intercom. I was their third ever employee, and they grew to nearly 300 while I was there! I loved it because I was always busy, and learned a ton about small businesses and the tech industry.
Fantastic. Do you have any thoughts about where do you see your career taking you in future?
Right now, I’m focused on getting better at what I’m doing. With some more experience and confidence in programming, plus some imagination, the sky’s the limit! 😃
The International Space Station! Imagine the views!
Any pets or a pet wishlist?
I don’t have any pets, but one day I’d love to have a dog. Or a tiny hognose snake!
What are you saving up for at the moment?
Holidays! It’s so cool being this close to Europe – I want to take advantage of it! I’d especially love to see the Swiss Alps.
Financial advice to your younger self?
It’s empowering to be financially independent – save money with this goal in mind. But make sure to enjoy yourself! Don’t let an extra $10 or $20 here and there keep you from experiencing something fun with people you love.
If you have any questions for Macey or want to find out more about the team please get in touch!
Next week we’ll be introducing a member of our community team, so hold tight!
Have a great day ❤️
Jack, Macey, and the Osper team
