Today I start my first day at Funding Gates as CTO. I’m extraordinarily excited to be working with an amazing leadership team, staff, investors, and advisors to massively disrupt the small business technology space.
Over the last couple of months of casual conversation over drinks and dinners, I’ve discovered the two co-founders, Ismail Colak and Jean-Marc Freuler, share my passion for building insanely great products by hiring the smartest, best developers, treating them like rock stars, and then getting out of their way.
That also means I’ll be leaving Toura, a place I’ve called home for the past two years. I leave knowing we’ve built an amazing team, awesome products, and have made our dent in the world. I expect them to continue to do great things and wish them all the best.
P.S. We’re hiring! Looking for an amazing workplace that is run by folks that understand and value software developers? It’s my job to make Funding Gates the best place that you could ever work, and I hope you’ll check us out!
P.P.S I’ll be in Phoenix, AZ April 1-4 at JSConf, followed by RailsConf April 23-25 in Austin, TX. Come talk with me about software development, good beer, or anything else that comes to mind. I’m buying!
