Welcome to the team, Matt!

Matthew Smith

Born in England, now in Switzerland via the beaches of Sydney, Australia, Matt’s background is in Technical Recruitment, and after 4.5 years within an agency, he decided to join us here at Amazee! 

Matt moved to London to work for an insurance brokerage, but in 2014 he relocated to Australia for an adventure where he stayed for a year travelling around the country and failing at surfing (but excelling in exploration). A year later, he moved back to England but hadn’t had enough adventure, so after 3 months back in the motherland, he moved to Switzerland and started a new career in recruiting – that was 4.5 years ago. After learning his trade in a tough agency environment, he was ready for his next adventure – Amazee Labs!

Matt’s happiest when he has a problem to solve and considers it a good workday when he gets stuck into a challenging topic then comes out either winning or smarter. He appreciates the freedom to be different and the freedom to sometimes be wrong. Having worked with Amazee in his previous role, he has already gained some great experiences with the team, enjoying the Amazee Labs culture of openness and familiarity so much, he had to be part of it.  

When Matt unplugs from work, he likes to unwind by hiking, reading about the cosmos and political philosophy, and attending live music events. He’s also an amateur guitarist -- to his neighbour’s! He prefers spending his summer afternoons floating down the Limmat and his winters hibernating. 

Matt’s looking forward to joining the Amazee family, getting to know everyone and further cultivating the company’s growth and development.
