This is the seventh in a series of posts to help people get to know the team better. Today, we catch up with huge Apple fanboy, Faisal Saeed!!

Where do you live?

I live in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

How long have you worked for

It's been 4.5 years since I joined the team. However, I've been a fan and user for much longer!

What do you do at

I work on the iOS app. For the first two years, I built the first app which we now remember as v2 or the classic version. Quite recently, we have launched the new v3 version.

What do you like about working at

I like the "working from anywhere" model, but most importantly, I love the chessboard, and I get to see it all day :)

What are your other interests and hobbies?

I like to ride motor bike on mountains, classical indian music is my favourite and I like to try difficult things in life :)

0-0 or 0-0-0?

Big question. All I know is, whatever choice I make, I immediately regret and wish I had made the other choice :D

Which piece do you like the best?

I like the pawn because it can be sacrificed without much sorrow, and it has the potential of becoming the strongest piece. And I like how a pawn checkmates the king sometimes :D


Thanks for tuning in! Check back next week for another staff profile.
