Who's James?

Who's James?

 

I'm a senior product manager at Afterpay, based in San Francisco and focused on the consumer shopping and payments experience for our 6.5m+ customers worldwide. Prior to that, I was at Xero, where I delivered Open Banking in the UK to 500k+ customers. Back in Australia, I led the digital channels team at Tyro Payments, scaling an award winning app, and built a business insights tool for Commonwealth Bank of Australia to help millions of users understand their business. If you're interesting in hearing more, give me a shout or check me out on LinkedIn.

What about in my free time? You can find me trying to find new hazy IPA's, planning my next trip around the US, and trying to find the perfect white t-shirt.
