Meet The Team - Alex VanderEls

Meet Alex VanderEls, a recent transplant to Lisbon by way of Boston, MA. After his wife’s company opened an office in Lisbon and offered to relocate them, Alex jumped at the opportunity to work and live in another country. At Wodify, Alex is a Product Owner and has spent the majority of his time improving our Athlete app as well as our software’s performance tracking capabilities. 

“The most surprising thing about working at Wodify is the freedom. I get input, feedback, and guidance from peers and leaders, but I also have a lot of autonomy. It’s a nice balance. There’s a real emphasis on the ‘Owner’ part of Product Owner here, which I love.”

Alex is committed to setting high goals and reaching them, and recognizes that his team feels the same way. He enjoys the process of seeing an idea that may have been conceived on a Post-it Note transform into a fully realized product ready for market.

“The Wodify value that most resonates with me is ‘Lead like a business owner.’  We’re a relatively small company, so it’s easy for an individual to see how the work they do impacts the team and our business.”  

When Alex isn’t busy making sure he and his team deliver on their roadmap, this former U.S. Marine and self-proclaimed Instagram junkie relaxes by completing Ironman triathlons in his spare time. (That’s a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and a 26.2 mile run, if you’re keeping score at home.) So far, he’s finished four of them, NBD.
