Fresh Faces | Aaron Coulter

Here at See.Sense we are proud to employ 15 talented team members who love what they do. From creatives to organisers, hardcore techies to data scientists, most of us are avid cyclists (and for the few who aren't, it's a slippery slope!)
We'd like to introduce you to our newest team member, Aaron Coulter.

My Job Title is…

Smart Cities Programme Manager

I’ve been working at See.Sense for…

Since the end of May - I’m the newcomer!

What led you to apply for the role at See.Sense?

I’m a customer turned employee! Being from Belfast and into cycling I’ve known about See.Sense for a few years but finally got around to buying an Icon rear light before Christmas. In the first marketing email that appeared in my inbox they were advertising for a Smart Cities vacancy which was something I had no idea they/we were involved in. After a bit of research I was blown away by what the company was doing so I got in touch with the team and the rest is history!

What excites you about how cycling data and insights can be used?

Being an Urban Designer by trade I naturally put a lot of emphasis on the importance of high quality, human-centred design in our cities and believe that making space for the bicycle really brings a city to life.

One of the things that makes it hard for cycling advocates is the lack of quality data available when compared to everything that is generated to help keep cars on the roads. The work we’re going to be doing over the next few years will address this imbalance and will help give cyclists a stronger voice.

The best thing about working for See.Sense is…

Besides the nice team and free (good!) coffee, it has to be that I’ve managed to find the holy grail of combining my passions and interests with my job. In my second week here I spent a morning (and a good part of the afternoon!) out on my bike talking about our Smart Cities work with a product reviewer visiting our office. It’s the closest I’ll get to being a pro!

When I’m not in the office, you will usually find me...

Out exploring, probably on my bike.

Do you ride? If so what bike do you have?

I’m currently on a Canyon road bike which is my go-to bike for training, racing and club rides with Brixton Cycles Club. For commuting and general getting around in London I’ve also got a Raleigh Chiltern - an indestructible dutch style bike decked out with front and rear racks. Definitely experiencing the city at two speeds!

And what’s your dream bike?

It’s currently being built by Owen at  Donard. Custom Steel Frame, disc brakes (it rains a lot in Ireland), with geometry that will allow me to continue race training at a decent pace but with the option of putting on small rear rack for some longer distance adventures.

Starter or desert?

Both.

Tea or coffee?

Coffee.

One thing you might not know about me is…

I have an irrational fear of seagulls.

Three things I couldn’t live without are...

Good food. Good wine. Good coffee. (The order changes depending on time of day!)
