Meet The Team: 5 Fun Facts About Andrew!

Every month, we feature one of our awesome Fluid team members. This week, meet Fluid’s Business Development Manager, Andrew!

You always know when Andrew’s arrived at the office because he has the biggest presence. His booming voice, his giant smile – and his mustache is pretty epic. He started in BD just a few weeks ago, but is already killing it.

Andrew took some time to sit down with us and chat New England, Vonnegut, and Lyft. Check out his fun facts, below!


1. What’s your favorite thing about Fluid?
Nobody says, “that’s not my job.” It’s great to work for an organization where your teammates are more interested in group performance than on individual success. A rising tide floats all boats. Fluid is a great example of that.

2. Where are you from?
I’m from Boston, so I am a proud New Englander. If you want to hear what it’s like to win 10 Championships between your 10th birthday and your 27th, give me a call. We can talk about how Tom Brady is the greatest QB to ever play the game.

3. What do you like to read?
I’m a voracious consumer of print news: Times, WSJ, the Economist. I love following the butterfly effect of geopolitics. For example, how legislation in one part of the world, thousands of miles away, could trigger currency devaluations, or spark negative consumer sentiment, or boost popular support on a trade initiative back home. It’s wild how interconnected everything is.
If I’m reading fiction, I’m probably buried in something by Vonnegut or Hemingway.

4. What is your favorite app, other than Fluid? (;
Lyft – I’m a big proponent of products that make things easy (which is why it’s so great to work at Fluid). So when I want to go someplace in the city without having to drive, which is fairly often, Lyft is my go-to.

5. Describe yourself in three words.
Ginger. Entertaining. Analytic.


We are excited that our team continues to grow- check our our careers page to see what positions we’re hiring for!

Meet The Team Frenchie: 5 Fun Facts About Doug!

Every month, we feature one of our awesome Fluid team members. This week, meet Fluid’s Frenchie, Doug!

You’ve seen him in our job descriptions, our Instagrams, and now he’s wriggled his way into a blog post… meet our French Bulldog, Douglas! You can catch him chasing ice cubes, basking in the sun, or hot-boxing the office with his awful gas. But we always forgive him because… well, just look at that face!

Doug took some time from his super busy schedule to answer some fun fact questions for us. Check them out, below!


1. What’s something most people wouldn’t know about you?
That I purposefully gulp a lot of air when I drink water so I can let out the stinkiest farts next to people. Sometimes I’ll walk up next to people and fart. Then I’ll walk away nonchalantly like nothing happened. There’s no pleasure in farting when there is no audience.

2. What’s a secret talent of yours?
Definitely my ability to fart. It’s true, I can crop dust the entire office and people still think I’m cute. Nobody can resist me – nobody!!

3. What’s one thing on your bucket list?
I’d like to date Emily the other office dog, but I don’t think she notices me yet. Okay, maybe I annoy her sometimes. Seriously, what do I need to do to get noticed. :’-(

4. What’s your favorite thing about Fluid?
I like the hugs and ice cubes. Unlimited ice cubes for the win! I’m the company therapy dog through and through. Seriously though, the atmosphere is very chill and everybody loves me – except Emily :’-(.

5. Who do you look up to/your biggest influencers?
Me, I’m so awesome! I mean how could you not like me?
