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 function naming conventions, Mike produces fabulous code at a frightening pace.
If we released it, and it actually works, Mike probably wrote it. In his spare time, Mike enjoys rocking out on plastic instruments, watching television shows in languages he doesn't understand, and writing about robots and spaceships.
Before becoming our Chief Architect, 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.
Xavi is our fearless front-end developer. With a meticulous attention to detail, he dives into code like no other, ensuring that Baydin is scalable and reliable for all.
Xavi enjoys playing Starcraft, optimizing public transportation routes, and scaring his co-workers by moving completed jigsaw puzzles with his bare hands. Open-minded, he likes all food equally, but when put on the spot and asked repeatedly, he admits that he kinda likes cheese.
Before Baydin, Xavi worked at Zynga, Novell, VistaPrint and has managed to get himself in jQuery’s AUTHORS.txt. He also went to MIT with Alex and Moah.
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 is more confident about her fondness of cheese than Xavi is.
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.
It's not just a made up word! Baydin means "foretelling the future through magic" in Burmese. Baydin intends to make software that feels like magic.
