Learn more about PickTrace’s Head of Product, Greg Moore!

Name: Greg Moore
Title: Head of Product
Department: Product
Tenure with PickTrace: Since 2021


RAPID FIRE:

  • Grew Up In: I grew up outside of London, but really spent most of my childhood between London and the US before I spent high school in Weston, Connecticut. 
  • Currently Lives In: Los Angeles, CA
  • Star Sign: Aquarius 
  • When you’re snacking, do you go savory or sweet?: Sweet. I’m a candy guy – usually whatever 7-11 reward I have will be cashed in. Typically those mini powdered donuts, Haribo, Twizzlers. 
  • Go-to Karaoke song?: You Get What Give – New Radicals
  • What’s the most useful product you’ve purchased recently?: Ember mug that keeps my coffee warm.

You have a background in industrial design, how does that influence your current work?

  • At its core, industrial design is product development. The foundation of it shares the same user research principles that we apply to building software products.
  • Being good at understanding a customer’s problem and being innovative to solve that problem is very transferable – whether it’s with a physical product or a digital one.

What made you transition from physical products to software?

  • In undergrad I had some friends who were building apps. I saw the pace at which they were able to build and deploy ideas and I wanted to do that.

     

What’s a favorite memory from your 3 years at PickTrace?

  • I think my time working with the Field Pack crew was a really bright spot in my time here. Working hand in hand with Ella, Petey, and Kevin Plaut was a lot of fun. Up until that point I had primarily been doing research, which is a very individual sport, and I loved pivoting into a crew ‘team sport’ setting
  • The past 6 months in Paycard-land, it’s been super fun to work with a new crew and be in the nitty-gritty of a new product

What are your hobbies and passions outside of work? 

  • The honest answer is I don’t – in my outside time I’m nerding out on startup and product content. I’m reading, tinkering, and building small things. Typically I’m building stuff to practice skill sets – I’ll spend a lot of time in Figma designing apps just for fun. Just practicing reps in those tools.  
  • The bulk of my free time goes towards reading. I have a particular fondness for the private equity world and learning about the titans of that space. 

Do you have any guiding principles or quotes that you live by?

  • If you had asked me three years ago, I would’ve had a response – but lately I don’t. I don’t really have a mission statement that guides my day to day.
  • I have a million and one goals, but not necessarily a set of principles

If you were a fruit or vegetable what would you be and why?

  • Kiwi. From what I understand, as to what’s written on the outside of the packaging, they’re extremely nutrient dense but don’t have the respect they deserve in the produce kingdom. I like the idea of unsuspected value.
