Meet the team: Sam McEwan, iOS app developer


We’ve added another awesome iOS developer to the team behind Vend’s iOS app. Sam McEwan brings with him a bag full of mobile development talent which we’ll be putting to work on our mobile point-of-sale software.

Sam’s also a bit of a digital cupid, his love calculator Love-o-matic has been downloaded more than 800,000 times.

Who are you?

I’m Sam McEwan, but the people of Twitter know me as @saggis. I love nature and building awesome mobile apps. I’m also passionate about community and getting kids interested in the awesome industry that is technology.

In my spare time I like tinkering around with apps, you can read about my exploits on my blog.

What do you do at Vend?

I’m an iOS developer, I’ll be working on making the Vend app even better.

Why did you want to work at Vend? (If we’re holding you here without your consent, say nothing.)

I was kidnapped, help me! No really, I’ve been following Vend closely for a couple of years so when the opportunity came up to be a part of the awesomeness I just had to come on board.

What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?

There’s not much I keep to myself, pretty much everything is plastered all over the internet.

I’ve seen elephant seals copulating while doing nutty nature things. I’ve also been to Antarctica and a bunch of the Subantarctic Islands.

If Vend was an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, which one would it be?

Terminator 2 – we’re turning something that was originally your nemesis into an ally which helps you combat evil!
