Joe Braidwood

I was on the founding team of SwiftKey, one of the most successful startups in the mobile industry, where I served as Chief Marketing Officer. SwiftKey pioneered smartphone AI through its keyboard software, which accurately anticipates a user's typed input, saving them time and boosting productivity.

Joining as the first employee, I helped grow SwiftKey from nascent prototype to major Microsoft acquisition. In over six years with the firm, I became heavily involved across a wide range of company functions, including marketing, public relations, product management, operations, business strategy, business development, public speaking and customer support.

In March 2016, I left SwiftKey to take a break, travel, and seek my next adventure. I'm particularly keen to commit some time to charity and creative projects -- things that have been on the back burner during my very busy years at SwiftKey.
