Welcome to Typsy

Who we are

Here at Typsy, we’re on a mission. By giving you access to world-class instructors, the right technology, and a vibrant community of hospitality lovers, we want to help you lift yourself to a higher level.

Our online training platform is designed especially for the hospitality industry. We work together with the people who make the industry tick, creating short, fun video courses that empower you to take charge of your future, whether you’re the owner of your own venue, or a team member just starting out in your career.

Where we work

We are based in Melbourne, Australia and San Francisco, but don’t be surprised if you see us hitting up your city some time soon, because we’ll travel all over the world in search of course instructors who share our philosophy.

Say hello to our people

If there’s one thing we’ve learnt since starting the Typsy office, it’s this: not one of us has the same taste in music.

Founder & CEO

I had my first million-dollar idea at 17. It was to sell advertising space on the moon. I met hurdles.

Andee Sellman

I’ve worked in many different industries and geographies across both finance and human behavior. The rhythm of nature draws me into my sweet spot and I love being around people who are creative and free to be themselves.

Love a laugh, a challenge and a post-it-note! Known for adventurous pursuits including hitchhiking through Sub-Saharan Africa, teaching English in Istanbul and can even shear a sheep!

Justin Barker

Justin Barker

Head of Production

I love ABBA, animals and adventures. I like to co-live, co-work and co-sleep. I’m obsessed with international flights and helping people make money doing what they love.

Erik Wilson

Erik Wilson

Motion Graphic Designer and Video Editor

I love learning things the hard way. I’ve been DJing since I was 15, and producing music for the last 12 years, but animation seems to occupy most of my time lately.

I turn 2 minute stories into 50 minute stories. I also sneeze after brushing my teeth. 

Azra Coburn

Azra Coburn

Global Technical Lead

My mission is to make our world a better place, one line of code at a time. When I am not coding you will find me diving in the fissure between continents in Iceland or camping in the Okavango Delta.

Tanya Timmers

Tanya Timmers

Product Manager

I feel most at home at a punk rock gig. I geek out over food a little too much sometimes. Bad puns and ice cream fuel my life.

Jeremy Guard

Jeremy Guard

Senior Learning Advisor

I’m an expert conversation lull gap filler. I like to escape into home projects with the attitude that I am going to break this thing until it is fixed.

Jos Shimoga

Jos Shimoga

Customer Success Manager

I’m permanently suffering from the travel bug. My happiest place = my bed. I like eating, talking, listening to music and sleeping, but not at the same time.

Evangeline Franciscus

Evangeline Franciscus

Sales and Marketing Coordinator

Trying new things and pushing the limits gets me most excited. As much as I love sitting by water with a book in hand, I cannot wait to experience skydiving in Dubai.

Emily Tatti

Content Marketing Manager

When I’m creative, I’m happy. I also treat reading like an Olympic sport. My secret shames include bad horror movies, freakshakes and the Macarena.

Ivana Rnjak

Ivana Rnjak

Production Researcher and Content Writer

I get excited about academic referencing and have to pat every dog I see. Zines, hip hop, tattoos, brunch and sunny days are some of my favourite things.
