From the outside a company can seem like a black box, mysterious and enigmatic in the way it works but it somehow finds a way to churn out new ideas. When we lift the lid on this black box, we generally see three key people, a hipster, a hacker and a hustler. So who do we see when we lift the lid on WorkingMouse?
When quizzed about sporting sweaters in the middle of summer, Eban replied with â€˜I'm cool enough as it is.' As the hipster of the company, he ensures Working Mouse's final product looks better than Tom Selleck's moustache - which is no small feat. An example of Eban's creative genius is his thesis; 'A model-driven approach to developing and testing web applications.' This has established him as a thought leader in model driven engineering. Unfortunately Eban's â€˜hipster' tag does not extend to his taste in music as artists such as Pitbull and Flo-Rida dominate his recently played.
I lead WorkingMouse's long-term technology vision, meaning I'm responsible for the innovation platform, research program, university collaboration and industry thought leadership. After graduating with a degree in Multimedia IT I began working in information technology. My task is to give life to Eban's ideas making me the â€˜Brad Pitt' of this Oceans 11 dream team. I'm more than happy to sit back and watch George Clooney (Eban) take credit for my behind the scenes genius.
Having conversations with Dave are often incredibly difficult as he doesn't know what no means. There are even rumours he has sold ice to an eskimo. Dave is tasked with the job of ensuring Eban's ideas are what people want and then bringing it to them. Dave has extensive experience running multisite sales teams and has been involved with a number of technology startups. His technical background means that he can use applied knowledge to help and drive innovation. Dave carries a photograph of the company's business model in his wallet and often falls asleep staring at it.
