Jerome Touze and Peter Ward came up with the idea of Where Are You
Now? over a beer, after having backpacked around the world during their
gap year. Having met lots of people without being able to keep in touch
with them easily, they came up with the idea of being able to visualize
where your friends are and allowing you to interact with them.
Originally from Marseille, France, Jerome decided to switch from bright sunshine
to London's fog in order to enrol in a British university. He is now settled
and never travels without a block of cheddar and marmite...
Although his crazy experimental hair styles might suggest the opposite, Peter
Ward has a keen head for business and has been an entrepreneur from an
early age. Since the launch of WAYN he has switched off his phone and can
only be found online.
The "man with the plan". Mike Lines joined Jerome and Peter three months
after the start of the WAYN adventure. Kept hidden away in Poland, this man is the tech-savvy behind
the scenes developer WAYN could not do without.
WAYN moved relatively quickly from the living rooms of Pete and Jerome's parents
into a small office in Enfield and then more recently to London. Having invested so
much into the ideas for site development a focused team of talented web developers
in Poland steadily grew and now the Polish office has more staff than the London
UK London, Barbican
Located in the heart of London, the office gets inspiration from the city's bustling
community to provide the best and most exciting services to Wayners worldwide.
Eleven of us are based there, brainstorming from dawn to dusk, and trying to launch
the next trend to allow you to be a part of it first.
This team of 35 people actually make it happen. No task is too big for them and
they are taking good care of you by ensuring that the services we provide remain
top-notch and any problems you have are dealt with swiftly. They ensure the website
is maintained as a safe and pleasant environment for users and get new services
launched regularly on WAYN to increase your online fun!
