Inside the Circle — meet Teddy!
Here at Funding Circle, we firmly believe that our amazing team is what makes our company so special. That’s why we created this series to help you get to know the people behind Funding Circle.
Today, meet Teddy, a manager on our borrower team who’s been with Funding Circle since March 2015! Learn more about his favorite part of the job, which superpower he’d like to have, and more in this Q&A:
What do you do at Funding Circle?
I manage our sales team!
What’s the best part about your job?
I enjoy brainstorming with my team how we can better serve our customers. They have amazing insights into what our customers want since they are on the phone with them all day. I then get to work with several teams throughout Funding Circle to make these ideas realities.
What’s your favorite thing about working at Funding Circle?
I love working for a rapidly growing business. I am faced with at least one new challenge every day, and can see the impact our team has on the overall vision of the company.
What’s one thing your coworkers probably don’t know about you?
I was the shortest person in my class in 9th grade. (Now I’m 6’4”.)
What do you like to do in your spare time?
One of my favorite things about San Francisco is the easy access to the outdoors. I spend my free time surfing at Ocean Beach, skiing in Tahoe, and mountain biking in Marin.
If you could pick one superpower, what would it be and why?
Like everyone else, I’d love to be able to fly. But more realistically, I’d love to be able to read insanely fast. Reading is one of the most valuable ways to spend time and gain knowledge, and I would love to be able to read 10x as many books as I currently do.
What was your worst subject in elementary school?
I eckselled in all subjektz
What’s your proudest achievement in life?
We hosted Thanksgiving for the first time this year. Dinner wasn’t ready until 8:30pm, but the turkey was prettttty darn good.
