Hello, I'm Kieran 👋🏼

I’m a writer and marketer currently helping to grow Ably Realtime in London.

I cut my marketing teeth writing freelance copy during my undergraduate degree for beer and travel money. I went on to work as a copywriter at a marketing and communicatons agency in Antwerp. Here I worked on high tech industrial briefs for the likes of DNV GL, NXP, and Phillips.

The chance to study a fully-funded MSc in Marketing appeared and, not one to turn down an opportunity, I jumped back into education. My MSc focused on product and marketing as a strategic function of a company.

A year later, my masters done, I headed back to tech as a writer and product marketer at early stage startups. But I’d tasted travel and didn’t want to give it up. Luckily for me, remote working is a thing now.

I’ve worked closely with engineering and product teams, as well as with senior management. I’m no coder or designer but I understand the internet, what constitutes good UX, and I’m fascinated by all things tech.

For two years I headed up product marketing at a big data and analytics software studio, where I led three SaaS products to market that focused on helping people collect, report, and migrate data.

I chose to travel to new places every few months with the freedom that a remote-first work culture gave me. I sometimes wrote about the life of remote work.

Nowadays I live in East London, riding up and down Regent’s Canal when the weather permits. I take pictures of buildings and people. I think and write about software products and markets.

You can find me @remotekieran on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Medium.
