Tailify logotype

Ian Randolph

Head of Product & R&D – Research & Development

What drives you?

What drives me is discovering the truth about people and the world. I’m relentlessly curious, having studied, researched, and/or taught behavioural science at places like Yale, the LSE, UCL, and DARPA.


Why did you join Tailify?

I joined Tailify to develop world class capabilities in product development, data science, and psychology to build technology which unleashes the potential of the influencer economy for everyone.


Tell us a fun fact about you

I ran the Berlin Marathon barefoot in 2013. I like finding out what humans can do for myself.


What is your biggest fear?

I must not fear. Fear is the mind killer.

What is your proudest accomplishment?

Having a happy family


If you could give your younger self 1 piece of advice, what would it be? 

Relax. Everything is out of control.


What is the single most valuable thing you’ve ever learned?

That I am not my body or my mind, but a piece of consciousness manifesting here and now to learn, grow, and explore unique possibilities for being in this life.

If you could share a meal with any 4 individuals, alive or dead, who would they be?

I’d invite Alan Watts, Elon Musk, Riccardo Semler, and Jesus around the table. It would be a meal full of wisdom, genius, and laughter. 


My secret passion is…/ guilty pleasure 

My guilty pleasure is curling up on Friday night with pizza, my wife, and a good JRPG on PS4


In the next 5 years, the biggest thing I want to achieve is… 

Building something that’s never existed before and leveraging that discovery into a beautiful business system

What is something most people don’t know about you?

I'm a meditation teacher and practice energy healing as a side passion.

How do you think your colleagues will describe you at the end of it all?

Hopefully that I was a good man.

Who is your favourite influencer and how have they influenced you?

My wife Joy has influenced me to become the man I am today in so many ways
