stae is the world's most human-centered urban tech company.
Cities are giant unoptimized computers and stae's goal is to empower people to leverge technology to make cities a better place to live. stae makes it as simple as possible for cities to build vendor and public-facing APIs so that anyone can build on city data.
At stae I've helped to define go-to-market strategy, working directly with city officials and citizens across the country, establishing partnerships with key collaborators in urban tech and establishing a unique brand and voice.
At GIPHY I led the Product teams for Platform (API) and Search (user-facing relevance and discovery).
I worked directly with Twitter, Facebook, Tinder, WhatsApp and other partners on integrating GIPHY into their applications, scaling the Search API over 25x to a million requests every second and optimizing search relevance for each.
I also help build GIPHY's ETL pipeline and analyics system, first to capture our own data, then extended to partners.
I did a few other things, like manage worldwide content distribution to ensure the lowest possible global latency, optimize search conversion and time on site and identify semerging earch trends and cohorts. I even helped build the first version of GIPHY's ad platform.
I joined DigitalOcean to help build the user-friendly cloud, transforming DO from a VPS to something that could grow and adapt with our users--yet remain beautiful and simple.
At DigitalOcean I helped to define and build tools for Storage (block, object, etc), Compute (variable CPU, containers, etc). I personally owned the P&L and execution of the Storage team, adding a new product line that led to significant revenue.
I also helped to define our product process, allowing DO to gain momentum and surpass a $100MM run rate.
I worked at Amazon for almost a decade, working across many products: scaling Prime Video and Kindle Direct Publishing, experimental CX, third party fulfillment and computer vision. Chances are strong that I helped make it easier for boxes to show up on your door, for books to show up in your Kindle and for movies to show up on your TV. Sorry!
