As development lead and chief wine drinker, Alex spends most of her time corralling and testing both the Figured codebase and the development team. Originally from the UK weʼre pleased to say she has found her way across the globe to us via Australia, bringing with her a depth of experience gained from a wide range of industries, from financial auditing and compliance through to publishing and manufacturing, all whilst maintaining her unique British sense of humour.
Leaving a Post-It trail wherever she goes, Amy is our professional cat herder who keeps us in line to ensure all the great ideas come to life. Her expertise is in research and marketing, product development and management, with a lean and design-thinking background. Amy has already crossed off 5 of 8 of the great walks in NZ, and commits her mornings to
Cultfit Crossfit, so basically has the strength of three developers put together.
Nobody really knows exactly what Ben’s role is, including Ben, but let’s just say, if you ask him if he can do something, he’ll say yes and then just figure out a way to make it happen. He’s a product pro, bridging the gap between the customer success, enablement and product teams, as well as our marketing design, photographer and web development wizard, who conveniently also cuts a little code on the side.
Family man, sheep and beef farmer, Chartered Accountant specialising in agribusiness and oh - he also happens to code in his spare time (not saying much for the social scene in Turakina, but nevertheless very impressive). As well as managing all of Figured’s commercial aspects, Carl is also heavily involved in our product development and strategy and, of course, is one of the two original founders of Figured.
Dan was born and raised in the Garden City, but 6 years ago decided to up sticks and move to the UK. From here he travelled, chasing waterfalls (bit of a TLC fan) in his kayak, while fitting in a bit of work as a software developer in between. He’s recently returned to Auckland to join us in the development team.
Anyone in a room with Dave can’t help but get inspired by his energy - especially when it comes to spreading the word about Figured. Dave has an impressive career history in senior leadership roles for a number of leading technology companies and, before joining Figured, was managing the digital solutions for business markets at NZ Post.
David was a strategy consultant in London, before moving to NZ for a few months...which turned into 5 years. He has led strategy and change in retail and banking, including New Zealand Post/Kiwibank and, most recently, Coop in Manchester. With a head for transformation, innovation and thought leadership, David is leading the charge in taking Figured to the UK. His spare time is spent with his young family, dog Alf and various bicycles.
Dow is a marketing and international business grad who originally hails from sunny Hawke's Bay, where she spent many a summer working on her dad's vineyards. She is a recent Welly migrant (and consequent coffee addict and foodie) where she kicked off her career in the ever-friendly debt collection industry. Dow loves working with people and helping out in the community and is pumped to be helping more farmers to farm on the front foot.
Born and raised on a livestock and cropping farm in Hawke's Bay, then spending five and a half years in agribusiness banking in NZ and Australia, Ed has a strong knowledge of farming and finance and is passionate about bringing these together using technology. He is responsible for developing business opportunities with Figured partners in Southern NSW, VIC and TAS. Based in Melbourne, Ed is also partial to a good coffee as well as Victoria’s legendary surf breaks.
