Topher

Director of Crumb Management

While his job may not seem important, he manages all floor scraps and guarantees a clean office space. 

If you’re unable to find him in the office, look for the person who is eating their lunch. He’ll be close by. His career aspirations are not limited to crumbs. He also has interest in scraps, leftovers, leavings, odds and ends and any sort of edible remnants.

Pierre

Director of Beard Compliance

Being located in the NorthEast, we had to add one bearded member to the staff, even if that team member is a dog.

While not keeping himself busy with various oils to keep his beard in the best state possible, Pierre often spends his time focusing on whoever is not giving him the appropriate amount of attention. His well-rounded skillset also includes placing paws on keyboards and staring.
