Rob Edgell

Rob Edgell is currently the Senior Software Development Manager for Fossil Group, where he is responsible for technology and software development for connected accessories.  For 30 years Fossil has been making watches and accessories that people love. Now, Fossil is on the forefront of impacting the wearable technology industry by creating innovative Connected Accessories that are fashionable and on-trend.

Rob began at Fossil as a User Interface developer looking for an opportunity to make a career. He has had experienced great managers and mentors along the way which has now provided him the privilege of leading a new team in developing applications and experiences for the Connected Accessories platform at Fossil Group.

Rob leads a team comprised of incredibly smart people who genuinely love what they do.  He further describes the team as "a small team, which affords everyone to wear many hats.  We don’t take ourselves too seriously, but we are passionate about changing the way we bring fashion and technology together".

Rob believes that success comes from collaboration and open communication and that people do their best work when they are having fun, which  has been Fossil’s approach to business since the beginning.  

Outside of work, Rob can be found at the park with his family or teaching his 2 year old to play Xbox.
