Max Ireland

Sr. Manager, Client Services

Bio

Max joined the TaskUs Client Services Team in September 2015 after being inspired by the company's vision, tremendous growth and list of exciting clients. Since joining, he has managed top accounts located across three continents - Australia, Europe (the United Kingdom) and North America (the United States) - and utilized his unique experiences to add value and insight to each!

Max is passionate about customer experience, coaching and using technology to help realize incremental gains in performance for his clients. He brings over seven years of experience to TaskUs from a variety of roles that have supported call centers throughout Australia and the Philippines.

He started his career down under with Australia's largest telecommunications company. Before joining the TaskUs Client Services team, Max was an account manager at a top Australian BPO and helped a variety of businesses to scale and to build their customer support teams.

He is a graduate of Guilford Young College in Hobart, Tasmania. Max recently finished the Data and Analytics course with TaskUs.

A perfect weekend morning for Max involves meditating, good coffee, a long run and a casual game of basketball with friends. He loves all genres of music - helpful in his brief, but rewarding former life as a music industry photographer. Max owns an ever-growing vinyl collection. For those not in the know: vinyl is similar to a digital music file but actually cool. His musical tastes range from Prince to Sublime, yet holds a special place in his collections for Australian artists such as Paul Kelly and The Beautiful Girls.

In short - Max is one cool cat.

Ryan Bobos

Director of Data Science

Bio

Here's the thing about Ryan: he's amazing. Sure, he's been TaskUs' Director of Workforce Management since June 2015. Sure, he inspires his colleagues on a daily basis with his impressive insight, dedication to excellence, intellect and top-tier skills. And sure, he's a great guy that everyone values around the office.

No, what makes Ryan utterly amazing is that he's a fan of the DC Universe comic books - especially, the Justice League, Batman, Flash and the Green Lantern. So yes, Ryan is freaking amazing. Superheroes, like Ryan, simply can't be any other way but so!

Ryan provides strategic direction, tactical leadership and day-to-day responsibilities for the Workforce team. He ensures proper staffing and training to accomplish departmental goals and objectives. He collaborates key stakeholders to develop processes, procedures, and methodologies, which support the company's culture and goals. Ryan drives cost savings initiatives for operational efficiencies. He also assesses and quantifies near-term risk and opportunities, and the impact of business initiatives.

He began his TaskUs career as Team Leader in August 2011. By January 2014, he was promoted to Operations Manager. When January 2015 rolled around, our resident superhero was promoted again, this time to his current position as Director of Workforce Management.

Before TaskUs, he held roles at Stellar Global Solutions, ePerformax, eTelecare Global Solutions and ITEC Support Plus.

He holds a Bachelor degree in Electronics from the Technological University of the Philippines.
