For the next instalment in our “what the hell does the dev team do series” we thought we’d actually tell you who the dev team is. We decided to do things a little differently for our meet the team post, and we all pulled names out of a hat to find out who’s profile we were writing. So here you go, the guys who put in the hard yards to create the marketplaces you all know and love.
Marketplace Dev Team
Erin Francis is a state cycling champion and a damn fine coder. He’s got a firm handshake, a magnificent haircut, a Flying V ukulele and a set of pearly-whites that’ve make senile men cry with joy. He moved to Envato two years ago, and we just wouldn’t be the same company without him. He’s an all-rounder who can pull off any fashion accessory. Transition lenses effortlessly show us both sides of his personality, as do his school shoes-with-casual-shorts combination. Yes, school’s definitely out for our gold-standard search expert.
Erin enjoys collecting bikes, playing video games and finding a cheaper way to do everything. On his off-hours, he picks up the slack wherever he can, be it staying back late to finish a redesign, organising the office networks, or even organising affordable food for the hungry Envato staff.
In fact, organising is Erin’s favourite thing. It’s part of everything he does. He organises our extremely profitable inter-office milk bar. He organises the strictly-not-for-profit sandwich club. He organises free beer on fridays. He organises rotas. He organises work-wheels. He organises my poker chips even though he’s not supposed to touch them. He gets his red blood cells to line up in a big row throughout his circulatory system each night before he goes to sleep, where he organises his many thoughts into clear, perfectly formed epiphanies.
Erin’s an environmentalist, a communist and an Australian icon – a Dame Edna for our times. If anyone thinks different, they can call him on 1800 CORRECT ERIN and tell him what they think of him. I’m not stopping you.
