At CaptionMax, we believe that our greatest strength is our employees. They’re clever, creative, and we can’t wait for you to get to know them a little better. Annie Taylor began at CaptionMax in May 2011 as an offline Caption Editor before going on to become Captioning Supervisor and now Production Scheduler:
What’s your favorite part of working at CaptionMax?
My favorite part of working at CaptionMax is the people. Everyone who works here is kind, funny, and talented, and it shows in their work and in their everyday interactions. It’s nice to come into a work environment like that every day.
What job did you want when you were 10 years old?
When I was a kid, I wanted to be a writer, which is not really a job and more of a way of being. Or a job that let me play video games all day (which I did end up getting the summer after college, and it was awful, but that’s another story). I was not a long-term-minded child.
What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?
Coffee is the obvious answer here, but in reality, I couldn’t live without the endless array of stories available to explore, in TV, books, movies, and video games.
Do you have any hidden talents?
They haven’t been revealed to me yet, but telekinesis seems like it’d be cool to have. Oh, you said talents, not superpowers. My answer stands.
What is your biggest hobby outside of work?
My biggest hobby outside of work is definitely video games. Right now I play a lot of Overwatch, but I’m very excited for the new Zelda in March (SO EXCITED).
If you could have dinner with any person, living or dead, who would it be?
It would be fantastic to have met and shared a meal with Sir Terry Pratchett. What a gem of a human being and author.
What is your favorite TV show/movie?
This is an unfair question and you know it. So I’ll give you two shows: Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Futurama. Obviously.
