Biography

Taylor McCaslin is an Austin-based multi-disciplinary technologist with 6 years of expertise in digital product design and development. He graduated from The University of Texas at Austin in 2013, where he studied business, theatre, computer science, and digital art & media. For the past 3 years, he’s worked at enterprise-scale, hyper-growth technology companies including WP Engine, Indeed.com, LIN Digital, and Bazaarvoice. Taylor is currently a Product Manager at WP Engine, an industry-leading managed hosting platform for websites and apps built with WordPress. WordPress has been Taylor’s platform of choice for over 6 years — he even paid his way through college by freelancing as a WordPress developer! When not pushing pixels, coding, or speaking about marketing and tech, Taylor can be found geeking out with the latest gadget or enjoying the expansive Austin art scene. He also enjoys volunteering with local human rights and LGBT organizations around central Texas.
