Poynt in Person: CharlesAug 04, 2015
Although our people come from unique backgrounds, they all share a common goal: Fixing commerce. Check in as we shine the spotlight on one Poynt Person to understand who they are and how they help Poynt fix commerce. Their answers, it turns out, have become our own...
Name: Charles Feng
AKA: Chenyu or @fengocyte
Catchphrase: “I’ll figure it out”
So let’s get started...
What is your role at Poynt? I’m a founding software engineer focusing primarily on web, mobile, and data engineering.
What was life like before Poynt for you? Lots of practice for the big game :)
How can commerce be improved? In a perfect retail environment, every party leaves every transaction happy — the consumer, the merchant, and the merchant’s B2B suppliers, vendors, and bank. Value can be maximized for each of these parties with best-in-class technology, communications channels, and data insights running on a secure, open platform.
How do you help Poynt fix commerce? I help create tools that empower merchants to organize and optimize their business, application developers to reach the merchants who need them most, and merchant banks and distributors to provide the highest level of support and protection for their clients.
What is one superpower you wish you had? I wish I could summon food to my desk (I’m looking at you, Chipotle).
What does fun look like for you? Being surrounded by people laser focused on each other and a common goal — whether it’s climbing a mountain, celebrating a milestone, or building the best product and company we possibly can.
It’s a fact: Charles scored in the top 0.1% in the country on both the MCAT and LSAT.
