The Team

Rajeev Nayyar

Managing Director

Raj is a former property lawyer – the idea of Fixflo came to him as he was suffering the pain of property repair management as a tenant in New Zealand while managing properties in London. He enjoys long walks on the beach and carries a Fixflo stress ball with him wherever he goes.

Duncan Careless

Chief Technical Officer

Co-founder and architect of the Fixflo range of products, Duncan has an extensive background in technology with roles including CTO at Friends Reunited and BrightSolid. He is only rarely photographed, and you are more likely to find him on the hockey pitch, where he captains his local team.

Chief Marketing Officer

Alex is passionate about tech marketing and music! Fuelled solely by caffeine, he loves to cycle in Europe and run marathons and triathlons.

Katie Buxton

In-House Counsel

Katie can always be relied upon to instil peace and harmony into the Fixflo office. Katie lived in Madrid for a whole year, so she is now classed as Fixflo’s resident Tapas expert.

Lauren Cumming

Customer Success Manager

Lauren is our resident Kiwi hailing from NZ and is a tech startup geek! She is passionate about customer success, travelling as much of Europe as she can and loves going to music festivals (mostly for an excuse to wear glitter). She thinks that one of the best things about London is that halloumi is super cheap here compared to NZ.

Jessica Dubey

Customer Success Executive

Always smiling Jessica loves chatting to people and gets to indulge her chatty impulses by speaking to Fixflo’s customers. In her spare time she loves to travel, exploring new places and cultures and having dinner with friends and family . Jessica is probably one of the few people who still have and use their i-pod.

Richard Vidis

Developer

Richard is also known as Satoshi Nakomoto, the inventor of Bitcoin. Although he doesn’t actually have any cryptocurrency himself. He prefers to use an ancient barter system and trade sea shells and old collectables for food.

Matthew Fosberry

Front End Developer

Matt spends his time educating us on American football, providing tips for ballroom dancing and making Fixflo even better. If you want to know the best restaurants or coolest board-game bar, he’s the one to ask.

Charlie Adams

Customer Success Executive

Charlie joined us after a self-confessed quarter life crisis, and the team has been reaping the rewards ever since (his words). When he’s not speaking with our happy customers, he’s either raiding the office snack box or taking care of his sweet sweet desk plants!

Ben Simpson

Customer Success Executive

A tech startup devotee, Ben loves a challenge. Originally from a little town called Eastwood where nobody drinks coffee and they only sell larger, these days you’ll either find him in a corner coffee shop or searching for a new ale to try. He’s also a big fan of football and really long road trips on the other side of the world

Dave heads up the development of Letflo, Fixflo’s newest offering. He also orchestrated Fixflo’s first Jaffa Cake challenge (as a judge rather than a participant, conveniently). Dave is a Dutch National Champion of the increasingly popular sport of Korfball and runs a marathon every month, most recently through the sun-soaked night in Tromsø.

Thomas Desmoutier

Product Owner

Taekwondo practising Tom is a self-confessed nerd and loves anything sci-fi or fantasy. You can often find Tom training the office on how to converse fluently in French. Très impressive!

Phil Hoy

Developer

Phil accidentally invented a time machine by wiring his alarm clock up to an old radio controlled car. Unfortunately it then disappeared 500 years into the future and he doesn’t remember how he did it, so roll on 2502!

Dominic Wells-Cole

Sales Executive

Dom has elevated office chat to an art, littering his language with what might be poetry, or riddles, or puns, while moving e-mail from a medium of words to a more visual form, communicating complex thoughts with well-curated images.

Jack-Linkedin-Pic-blackwhite

Jack Coles

Sales Team Lead

For his sins Jack has worked in SaaS for the last 8 years. Outside of work Jack will be watching rugby or any sport really,  and is looking forward to travelling to the Rugby World Cup in 2019 (Go Samoa!!) – his Mastermind subject would be Championship Manager 01/02.

Louisa Killeen

Sales Executive

Louisa is a seasoned business developer originally from Manchester. As a lover of all things product, fountain of ideas and tenacious problem-solver, she’s naturally at home in a tech start-up (but equally on the beach in Belize!). Louisa’s interests include vintage fashion – especially a great hat!

Ryan’s a huge football fan – he’s had a Crystal Palace season ticket for over 15 years now and was three years old when he went to his first ever game. He regularly drinks half his body weight in coffee every day.

Joe Parish

Marketing

Joe is an enigma, wrapped in a riddle, wrapped in parma ham and stuffed with cream cheese, then baked on a medium heat for 2 hours.

Lewis Bray

Senior Business Development Executive

A recent graduate from the University of Southampton, Lewis spent six months finding himself in South-East Asia and hasn’t shut up about it since. Passionate about technology, Lewis’s main interests are football and table tennis.

Will Arrowsmith

Senior Business Development Executive

Will is a huge music fan and is never happier than at a gig with a pint in hand. He is also a Stoke City fan (don’t ask why) which he tends to cause him more grief than anything else.

20190514_114310-blackwhite

Fabian Reynolds

Business Development Executive

Fabian likes to spend his time playing guitar, doing archery, and watching science documentaries. Someone once, inexplicably, commented that he is ‘well-dressed’ despite the fact that his wardrobe consists of nothing but jumpers and several identical pairs of black jeans.

20190514_124020-e1557834674128-blackwhite

Harry Smithers

Business Development Executive

Fresh graduate from Cardiff University, loving everything Rugby related. Often telling people about his long tally of injury – getting no sympathy from anyone. Rates a Christmas meal deal.

Malaikah Raja

Business Development Executive

You’ll often find Malaikah making tea without any water in the Fixflo kitchen, at the gym after work, watching every TV series possible on Netflix or shopping online with an extreme addiction. She also has over 7 million views on Youtube on just 2 videos.

image001-e1553859437708-blackwhite

Aman Basra

Business Development Executive

Not one for a cliche bio, you will definitely find Aman with a glowing smile on her face and either making a cup of tea or drinking one! As a huge RnB fan, she genuinely believes she has a ‘banging’ taste in music and if you debate that then good luck!

PHOTO-2018-09-03-14-52-09

Alex Barbeta

Customer Success Executive

Much like Nandos Alex is half South African and half Portuguese and describes himself as just as cheeky (oi oi). He’s a start-up expert, in fact he refuses to work in anything else and he’ll tell you so in English, Portuguese and Spanish – all of which he speaks fluently.

20190514_125418-e1558082778820-blackwhite

Adam Shaw

Sales and Marketing Operations

Sales and Marketing Operations is a suitably vague title for Adam, who is best described as something of an enigma. No one in the office is quite sure what he does but his passion for spreadsheets is well known as he chows down on a boneless banquet, whilst listening to his superior selection of black metal tracks. What a mystery he is.

20190514_114237-e1557832505321-blackwhite

Naida Allen

Business Development Executive

Naida (not Nadia) studied Criminology and Psychology believing she’d become an FBI Profiler and eventually star in Criminal Minds. Outside of work you’ll probably find her prancing about on stage, whipping up a gourmet meal or bingeing a good Netflix series. 

20190514_124039-e1557834549712-blackwhite

Rob Deane

Business Development Executive

Rob is a massive lover of food, constantly thinking about his next meal. Growing up he played in a variety of sport, but is currently a bit of a rugby fanatic. Outside of work you’ll find him in the gym, sleeping or grabbing a cold one with the boys
20190514_123732-e1557835364924-blackwhite

Lara Brandao

Design & Marketing

Lara is so good at graphic design that she designed the logo for one company just by dropping her breakfast on the floor. When not working, she likes to confuse people by talking backwards.

20190514_123709-e1557835660485-blackwhite

Mike Dickens

Customer Retention Executive

Mike check, Mike check, one two, one two. That’s what everyone says when the see Mike in the morning.
