Welcome to the first of our team Lingoing blogs! Each week we will be interviewing a member of the Lingoing team and sharing it with you. We hope it will help you get to know us better and what we are all about 🙂
First up is ‘Joe’…..
Full name: Joe Sumray
Job Title: Product Manager
1) Please explain your role at Lingoing:
My job as a product manager involves determining and defining what products Lingoing should create and focus on. To do this I have to take into account the market, customer and company needs. On a day to day basis I can be found on the phone speaking to the web developer, meeting with customers and my fellow Lingoing colleagues.
2) Why Lingoing?
Having the opportunity to work alongside a great team to create products that serve the interpreting and deaf community is extremely exciting and interesting. The team all feel really passionately about what they do and being around that enthusiasm and drive is amazing.
3) What do you do outside of work?
FOOTBALL! I love everything about it – playing and watching. I also enjoy a less well known sport called Crossfit – think of it as extreme circuit training. Other than sport I love to go out to eat and go on nights out with my friends and family.
4) What is your favourite film?
‘The Godfather’ – I am a bit of a gangster film fan and lets face it you can’t get better than The Godfather. “I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse”
5) Last but not least…What is the worst thing you have ever eaten?
Hmmmmm…I can’t recall eating anything too gruesome (wait for Ovais’s worst food!) but if I was to go for one it would be an old Jewish delicacy known as gefilte fish. It is translated as ‘stuffed fish’ – tastes even worse than it sounds!
Thats all from Joe – tune in next week to read all about the Lingoing co-founder Saduf!
