Meet TaxBit Team Member, Bryant Baird

Here at TaxBit, we're constantly adding team members to give you an outstanding customer experience. And we'd like to give you a chance to get to know us better.

At TaxBit, our team is the pulse that keeps our company moving forward. Every employee brings a unique perspective and skillset. In our TaxBit Team Spotlight Series, we’ll get to know the team members behind our success. 

This week, we’d like to highlight Bryant Baird, Senior Software Engineer. 

Q: Tell us a bit about yourself. 

I grew up in Coeur d'Alene Idaho, a mid-sized town full of lakes and beautiful trees. Later, I moved to Utah to pursue my undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering at Brigham Young University, followed by my enrollment in a dual Master's degree program in Computer Science and Business Administration at the University of Utah. Despite the stereotypes, engineers can be professionals too!

Q: What made you choose TaxBit?

I chose to join the TaxBit team for three reasons: 

  • Their frequent use of the rocket ship emoji within the company Slack 
  • Tremendous growth potential 
  • The chance to boost my personal career development 

But, let's be honest, mainly the rocket ship.

Q: What’s your favorite part of working at TaxBit?

Let's be real, I love to code! As a front end developer at TaxBit, I get to make changes on a daily basis that delight the customers and improve the user experience. I write quality software in addition to the occasional meeting. Within my first weeks of working at TaxBit, I had the opportunity to provide a lunch and learn to my team members. How cool is that?!

Q: What’s your favorite part of working in crypto?

Learning more about it every day. Like many of TaxBit's employees, I'm betting on a future where crypto is part of the mainstream culture; the opportunity to influence this sphere, albeit in a small way, excites me.

Q: Outside of work, what are some fun hobbies and activities you like to do?

I enjoy playing chess, listening to professional development books, tennis, playing the violin—I used to have a YouTube channel for that—the outdoors, and potentially pursuing a private pilot's license. Oh, and driving go karts on the streets of Tokyo in a Mario costume. True story.

Q: If you could travel anywhere, where would it be and why?

I’d like to be an eclipse chaser. Imagine seeing every total solar eclipse throughout the world, and literally letting the stars dictate where and when to travel. That's the dream right there.
