Q – How did you get into this industry?
Phil – I’ve been in the technical world since high school. After a couple startups and a couple corporate gigs, I felt the pull back to the startup world. Breather is my first foray into the “Real Estate Tech” world.
Q – How much is your work focused on user experience and content?
Phil – Being a brand focused company that deals in physical space, user experience is at the very core of what we do. This starts as soon as a user interacts with an ad or our digital products and follows them along the entire journey of search, booking, inviting their peers, physically entering the space, and the various touch-points along the way.
Q – What prompted the idea to start Breather? What excited you about it?
Phil – Julien, our CEO, often found himself on the road as a professional speaker and subsequently living out of coffee shops and hotel rooms. The seed of what became Breather was a way to find a quiet productive space of his own, no matter where work took him.
What excited me was being part of something really fresh with a multidisciplinary focus on not only technology but design and real estate.
Q – What are the workflows at Breather where you see teams using CloudApp?
Phil – I see CloudApp used all over the place:
If a workflow benefits from screenshots/gif/video then chances are you’ll see CloudApp.
Q – What is the tech used at Breather?
Q – What does the future of product look like?
Phil – The future is for us to continue differentiating ourselves from other more ‘traditional’ companies with whom we share parts of the market. Where they offer space, we will continue to offer productivity, fantastic end to end customer experience, and peerless design. From a technical perspective, we continue to remove friction and increase moments of delight in all of the expected (and unexpected!) places.
