This is Carl.
I joined Beauty Pie in August 2020 as the Director of Engineering. I head up our global technology, what we call Product Engineering. This includes all the application development and hosting infrastructure to deliver our e-commerce business, alongside our internal IT and cyber security.
I’ve worked with early stage digital businesses all my career. I’ve been lucky to be part of some amazing technology driven disruptive organisations, the latest being Funding Circle who went public in 2018.
WHAT ARE YOU RESPONSIBLE FOR?
I’m responsible for all of our technology globally. Beauty Pie is around 5 years old and we have built quite a technology ecosystem to support our unique membership based business. In any young organisation, technology decisions and choices are often driven by revenue. These focused on proving a value proposition, and for Beauty Pie that is our unique membership based business model in the beauty and cosmetics industry. We're the real trailblazers in this space!
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO JOIN BEAUTY PIE?
I’ve been working in the FinTech sector for most of my career. 20 years ago this industry was ripe for disruption, dominated by large incumbents who perhaps didn't invest enough in technology, innovation and a great customer experience. We've seen lots of new financial services innovation we all now take for granted.
The beauty and cosmetics industry is similar today, with large incumbents dominating the space. There are some really interesting innovations going on now around the world. Beauty Pie will be one of the pioneers in this space too.
WHAT’S SO EXCITING ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY AT BEAUTY PIE?
We're designing and building our technology from the ground up using the latest best in class technology. We're using Progressive Web on Next.js for server side static generation giving a lightning fast shopping experience and the best search engine discoverability. Just a few of the best in class technologies we are using today.
