Today, Baydin helps its customers focus on email that matters, when it matters. Our tools allow for reading and responding to messages faster and more decisively than before. These achievements mark only a small part of how we envision the company growing.
Our mission is to make productivity software that encourages people to be more productive. Some of the beliefs that will guide us as we work toward this mission include:
Alex does whatever he must, including but not limited to the slaughter of innocents, to keep Baydin up and running. On weekends, he solicits "angel investors" for Baydin off the coast of Somalia, operating under the name Brownbeard.
When neither pillaging nor developing, Alex enjoys watching Alabama football games, cooking in an eclectic Southeast-Asian-Southeastern-US fusion style, and kayaking in slow-moving streams.
Alex has a SB and MEng in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT. He previously worked at Analog Devices.
Were Python a Cobra, Mike would be her charmer. Blessed with preternatural patience, a voracious appetite for sushi, and a deep-seated love of elegant functions, Mike produces fabulous code at a frightening pace.
In his spare time, Mike enjoys rocking out on instruments (both real and plastic), watching television shows in languages he doesn't understand, and writing about robots and spaceships.
Before becoming our CTO, Mike attended Dartmouth, earning a BA in Computer Science.
Moah insists that people call her by her last name. A designer with a nose for code and a taste for funnel analysis, she can alternately be found on the phone with customers and elbows-deep in CSS. She designs all of the attractive, usable things that Baydin builds.
Moah specializes in finding little ethnic restaurants with fantastic food and questionable hygiene. She has a knack for ordering whatever you wish you'd ordered when the food arrives and has a longer arm-to-height ratio than Michael Phelps.
Moah holds a Computer Science degree from MIT and previously designed software at much bigger, though less awesome, companies.
With her impeccable taste, Mai-Chi brings happiness and beauty to Baydin's products. She makes everybody look good.
In her spare time, Mai-Chi enjoys upvoting pictures of baby animals on Reddit, marathoning TV shows on Netflix, and having people guess her middle name. She has a great fondness of cheese.
Prior to joining Baydin, Mai-Chi was a graphic designer at Earthbound Farm. She has a BFA in Art & Design (emphasis in graphic design) from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.
Lo strives to make our customers happy and keep them coming back for more while also maintaining the Feng Shui in the office.
Some of her favorite things include but are not limited to: cheese, laughing at really corny jokes, drinking coffee, melted cheese, making new friends, cheese flavored things, and anything you can drink which pairs well with cheese. If you’re looking for one of those people who makes you feel really funny because they laugh at all your jokes - then Lo is your girl.
Like Mai-Chi, Lo also went to Cal Poly, where she earned a Bachelors in Architecture. Right before joining the team, Lo fixed computers at a little place called Apple Inc and was a live-in nanny up in Seattle, but sunshine (and family) ultimately brought her back to California.
When we need a pile of customer emails answered, a minion hung from the ceiling, or illustrations for email spirit animals, Noah is ready! As part of the customer happiness team, he helps customers have a better experience with Baydin's products.
On the weekends, you can find him pedaling his fixie with abandon through the streets of Mountain View, drawing a comic book, or painting Norse gods. Noah is also part of the Cal Poly mafia, where he earned a degree in Art and Design.
Whether it's fine-tuning our conversion funnels, connecting with journalists, writing copy, optimizing ad creative, or making a person's day on Twitter, Chris directs all things marketing. He focuses on customer growth and makes sure that the word about our products keeps spreading.
When he isn't concocting marketing experiments, Chris enjoys triathlons, craft beer, community, exploring new restaurants, and being an extrovert. Yes, he will talk to you if you're behind him in line somewhere or sitting next to him on a plane. When asked, he admits that he also likes cheese, but not goat cheese (don't get crazy).
Before joining Baydin, Chris managed digital marketing at SanDisk. He holds a BA in Economics from the University of California, Irvine. Go Anteaters!
Johannes is a software engineer who loves productivity. Meticulous and thoughtful, he makes useful, reliable products that bring joy to everyone fortunate enough to use them.
Johannes enjoys playing all three races in StarCraft, trying out new board games, and sending funny Reddit finds to the rest of the team. Though he is not fond of cheese on its own, he likes many cheese covered foods: pizza, lasagna, pasta with grated cheese, etc.
Before Baydin, Johannes worked at Google. He has a BS in Computer Science from Georgia Tech.

It's not just a made up word! Baydin means "foretelling the future through magic" in Burmese. Baydin makes software that feels like magic.
