Get To Know The CoinCorner Team: Rachael – Operations
The CoinCorner team is growing rapidly, and 3 new employees have joined the team since we last did ‘Meet the Staff’. That means we have some catching up to do as we have Rachael, Joel and myself to get to know a little better, as well as Molly who managed to work here for months without doing hers.
Who is Rachael’s dream dinner date? What would Joel bring to a deserted island? Why did Molly choose to go into bitcoin? This feature will help you learn a little more about the CoinCorner staff, first up is Rachael…
If you could have dinner with one person (living or dead), who would it be?
If I had to go for someone famous I think I’d totally want to meet James Hetfield from Metallica. They’re my favourite band and I’d love to ask him about his life, his influences, and what motivates him to write his music (exciting I know).
If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things would you have and why?
1. A bookcase filled with books
2. My bed
3. iPod Classic + headphones (definitely nice to stay away from my phone and I love how much music the Classic can hold, why can’t phones have that much memory now!?)
What is your favourite food?
This changes so often, I’ll be completely obsessed with a food and then I won’t want to eat it again. At the moment it is definitely sweet and sour chicken with rice.
Where would you like to travel to that you have never been?
Russia! I’d love to go to Moscow or St. Petersburg.
If you had to choose to live without one of your five senses, which one would you give up?
Why did you choose your profession?
In my last job I was given a few tasks that were to do with operations and it definitely caught my interest. Of course when I saw my job advertised – it was under the title of ‘Trainee Astronaut’, I knew I had to apply.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
Teleportation so I could travel the world cheap!
What was your motivating factor to begin working with Bitcoin?
It’s such an interesting concept that is becoming so much more mainstream. Definitely an exciting industry to be in right now.
Has the path of bitcoin turned out the way you thought it would (so far)?
Yes, especially due to the increasing popularity it has.
Where do you see Bitcoin 5 years from now?
I think it will be accepted more mainstream but who knows, technology changes so fast!
