Fil studied chemistry at Harvard—but traded life as a scientist for life at Google, where he worked as a product manager. Though he loved the pace, Fil hoped to explore more than the product lane, so he switched gears again and found Better, which allowed him to dabble in other areas without slowing down.
Fil’s duties range from conducting research and prototyping to providing architectural direction to engineers. As a result, his daily schedule is never the same—though the goal of bringing better features to users never changes. In addition to overseeing the product category, Fil also encourages innovation—like supporting a team hackathon at a rented beach house.
