Friday morning, the sun is shining, the office is quiet… what better way to get through the last few hours before the weekend, than with a new blog series to enjoy? :) Starting today, every friday, we’re going to give you a little sneak peek of what it’s like to be a part of the SendHub team.
Since graduating from YC we’ve grown a lot as a team - there are 9 full time employees now + a handful of interns, and while that has been amazing for us as a team, we realize a lot of you on the outside don’t know anyone except for Garrett and Ash. So, to start things off, we’ll introduce you to the rest of the team, starting with our fearless engineering leader, Ryan.
Ryan Pfeffer, Co-Founder & VP of Engineering
Hometown: Mankato, MN
Unofficial job: Caffeine Curator, and Office DJ
Fun fact: When I was a little kid, I had nearly all of my teeth pulled out by the dentist (over time of course) and 8 of my adult teeth (including wisdom teeth). I think the total count is either 20 or 21 pulled teeth, including a supernumerary tooth which grew from the roof of my mouth. If you’re wondering the answer is Yes, I am a mutant.
Best prank call you pulled off (or want to pull off): I’m not sure this counts as a “prank-call,” but one time I did tell my younger brother that I would handle sending my mom flowers for mothers day. After convincing him (not hard) I subsequently bought two arrangements. One was a very pretty arrangement of a healthy size with a card that said, “from you’re favorite son, Ryan”. The other arrangement was a cactus.
What’s your biggest texting pet peeve? I hate the overzealous spell checker on the iphone. I’m a horrible speller anyhow and the spell checker just makes it worse, which is especially bad when sending texts to co-workers or professional connections.
