We are a team of pet (and human) parents, entrepreneurs, avid hang gliders, and amateur bread bakers. While we’re proud of our collective personal and professional accomplishments, we believe what makes us most impressive is how each member of our team embodies Aptible’s company values.
We take our values seriously and are constantly blown away by the degree to which our team lives by them. We are committed to building a team of drivers, fostering high talent density by:
Everyone at Aptible loves the mutual support and camaraderie of a strong team that wins together. We measure our commitments carefully and hold each other accountable, which means we’re able to deliver more to our colleagues and customers in the long run. We fail often and early, and learn from it. We value and respect teaching as the best way to learn, and make time to share information openly. We think and talk a lot about how we can improve, and work hard at it. We ask “why?” a lot in order to understand root causes.
At Lumafield, we’re humbled to work with incredibly smart and talented people who are willing to share their knowledge. Folks on our team come from smaller startups as well as places like Google and Pixar. One of our mechanical engineers has previous experience working on software that’s similar to what we’re trying to build, while another engineer previously came from The New York Times. We are constantly learning from one another and view our varied backgrounds and perspectives as assets.
As a smaller team, we’re thoughtful about the team members we bring on and look for stellar engineers to help build the best product possible. This doesn’t necessarily mean coming from a big name company or university – at the end of the day we’re looking for people who are motivated and hard-working. As we continue to grow, we plan to build more junior talent, too.
One of the best things about working at Gordian is the people (you can meet the team here). Our colleagues bring out the best in us every day and we’re always learning from each other. We don’t care about pedigrees or certain credentials on your resume and instead seek out people who are highly motivated, have terrific problem-solving aptitude, and are great communicators. Here are just a few of our incredible team members and why they decided to join the team:
Our founders and early team members bring a vast amount of industry experience. Co-founders Hunter (CEO) and Sebastien (VP of Eng) were early members of the US Digital Service and senior employees of the Department of Defense (DoD) working to modernize DoD Technology programs, like GPS. As a team, we’d like to think that we’re the best at what we do, but we’re also humble and eager to share our knowledge. This means that having previous experience in the space is not a prerequisite! In fact, we’re actively looking for talented individuals with different backgrounds and viewpoints regardless of what stage in their career they’re at. We don’t care about your pedigree and aren’t looking for a certain company name or university on your resume. Instead, we want folks who are motivated to make themselves better. If you’re the type of person who loves teaching yourself new things, you’ll fit in well here.
Co-founders Chandan and Jon started CoinTracker in 2017, when they were trying to track their hobby crypto investments and couldn't find a good platform to do so. “We literally had 15+ wallets, exchanges, and a Google Sheet trying to keep track of all of our transactions. It was a disaster,” says Chandan. “We added formulas, Google app scripts, and eventually it took two minutes for the page to even load. We knew we had to build something better.” It was a problem that extended not just to those casually investing in crypto, but also to more serious investors. Chandan and Jon wrote a post on reddit about how they quit their jobs at Google to focus on solving this problem by building a best-in-class product. Before that, Jon built and scaled TextNow from zero to 200 million downloads.
Another impressive team member is Shehan, our Head of Tax Strategy. He’s one of the few CPAs in the country who is an operator and expert on cryptocurrency taxes. Shehan was excited about establishing himself as a leader in the field and building a public image for himself and crypto taxes – and we’ve encouraged him every step of the way. He operates like an entrepreneur within the company, and his passion has led to great results. For instance, you can check out several of his articles on our blog, or find him on Twitter, where he’s built a dedicated following. He’s also taken the initiative and successfully landed some critical partnerships for us, including this deal with Wolters Kluwer (the largest tax professional software provider in the world), to help tax practitioners better serve cryptocurrency clients.
While a person’s pedigree and resume aren’t what impress us most, it’s worth mentioning that several of our team members are seasoned in building companies from the ground up. We’re humbled to work alongside folks who were early employees at Coinbase (#2), Kik (#2), Zapier (#17), and other great companies like Airbnb, Apple, Google, and Shopify.
While having the most amazing resume is not what impresses us at WorkOS, it's worth mentioning that several of our team members are former founders and executives. Our current team members have started companies in the past, and many go on to start companies together after their time at WorkOS.
We're proud to work alongside folks who came from Dropbox, OpenTable, Microsoft, DocuSign, LaunchDarkly, Airtable, Kickstarter, and Acorns. Many of them also made significant contributions to open source projects, which is something that we care about a lot.
You’ll feel both challenged and supported by the talented programmers that are working here. When something falls below the mark, we have the courage to speak up and say, “It’s not quite there yet.” At WorkOS, good enough is not good enough.
A sizable portion of Brex’s employees are former founders and seasoned executives. We are incredibly proud to attract and support individuals who have ambitions beyond “just having a job.” No matter what your future career goals are, we do our best to support you in developing the skills you want and giving you the opportunities you need to progress. Not only have many of our current team members started companies in the past, but many go on to start companies together after their time at Brex. For example, Lydia Han went on to start ModernLoop after her experience as a PM at Brex. Similarly, Abiel Gutierrez left to start his own company, Comun, which is building a bank for Latino households in the U.S. Your colleagues are YC alums, experienced fintech executives, and future founders – this may very well be where you find your co-founders. In fact, Gwen Brinsmead joined a startup founded by two former Brex employees as head of design and part of the founding team. Both current and former Brexers invest in these companies as well!
We are most impressed by the diversity amongst our colleagues. We believe the best people come from all backgrounds and locations. We are a remote-first company that hires across time zones and countries (Canada, USA, Brazil, and Israel currently) making sure we optimize for skill and talent instead of location. As Diana Poon, a senior engineering manager says, “When assessing talent during interviews, we don’t look through colored lenses. There are people on my team with non-traditional backgrounds who are contributing just as much as those who went to prestigious schools, and it’s the strongest EPD team I’ve ever worked with.” Whether it’s via employee resource groups (ERGs), the mentorship program, or your day-to-day work, you’ll be exposed to so many kind and talented people who are always willing to share their expertise, lend technical help, or just act as a sounding board.
Many of us have fun, diverse passions outside of the office, too, such as coaching hockey and teaching high schoolers how to code. And a huge percentage of the company (including our founders!) is working in a country they didn’t grow up in! As a result, we put a strong emphasis on immigration support. In addition to sponsoring visas, we’re also planning partnerships with organizations focused on DEI such as Latinas in Tech and Women in Tech.

We feel lucky to have a unique team comprised of former and future founders. Team members have raised venture funds, started and raised money for their own companies, been involved in acquisitions and IPOs, worked at early-stage startups that have become massive companies … the list goes on. While these credentials certainly aren’t required, it’s an added benefit that you’ll get to work closely with people who have a deep understanding of the industry and are excited to share their knowledge.
Digital therapeutics for common mental health conditions
San Francisco, London, or Remote (Global)
When Peter Hames (co-founder and CEO) had insomnia, he had trouble getting anything other than medication to help him. However, after reading Dr. Colin Espie’s book on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for insomnia, he realized non-drug alternatives could help not only him but also millions of others. Peter partnered with Dr. Espie and thus Big Health was born.
While we have a lot of brain power here — people have PhDs, come from big name companies, and also smaller startups — the things we all have in common is that we’re driven by the shared mission to effect lasting change in the mental health space with digital therapeutics. “There’s the constant feeling that I’m in good company and trust that everyone is doing what they need to do,” says Jerome Thibaud, our director of engineering.
We’ll never be satisfied with the status quo and are always looking for ways to better ourselves and our product. If that resonates with you, don’t hesitate to reach out!

At Qualia, we’re committed to ensuring engineers feel both challenged and supported. Not only are our engineers talented programmers with unique backgrounds, but they are also incredibly accomplished and humble people with a wide variety of interests. The team is made up of former founders (Razvan Popa), engineering leaders (Alla Rozenfeld), and developers from all types of backgrounds and industries. As an example, in addition to our three technical co-founders, Jack Lukic, the creator of Semantic UI, is our VP of Design.
We aim to foster an environment that encourages curiosity, learning, and mentorship. In addition to interactive onboarding tutorials (featuring a gravity simulation and security challenges) to help new hires get up to speed, we also have engineers give educational talks every Thursday on any topic of their choosing. We’ve learned about everything from Kolmogorov complexity theory to models of existential risk, and, more recently, the art (and mathematics) of origami!
We feel humbled and fortunate to work with folks who have deep technical experience and are eager to share their knowledge. Having worked as an electrical engineer for many years, Kyle (co-founder and CTO) brings that unique understanding to the table. Valentina (co-founder and CEO) has a mechanical engineering background and also worked as a product manager at Amazon. Jon, who has been our principal software engineer since the beginning, has decades of experience doing full-stack web development. He’s seen the rise and fall of different languages and tech stacks and is invaluable as a mentor to others.
We’re a multidisciplinary team that isn’t afraid to take risks. It’s only by being courageous that we’ll make breakthrough discoveries or find paths that don’t work – either way, we’ll learn from the experience. At the end of the day, we trust each other’s expertise both on the engineering side and company-wide.

Angazans tend to be quietly impressive. You’d never guess that we’ve built autonomous robots, designed the Tesla UI, helped scale Yahoo 14x, contributed to the Linux kernel, established Grameen’s Kenya operations, or been named to Forbes’ “30 under 30” list.
In fact, typing out that list felt painfully and distinctly non-Angazan, and we’d be just as happy never to do it again. Angazans come from a broad base of backgrounds, but we're all bound together by our shared goal. Angazans all join Angaza for the same reason. Most Angazans have the ability and privilege to choose from a variety of professional options, but the only thing you’ll hear us talking about is how we can solve the problems in front of us.

We debate (and reflect) without ego. It’s important to us that the people we work with are kind, open-minded, and generous, but also aren’t afraid to raise a concern or passionately debate an issue they believe in. We care deeply about what we're working on, and we also have high trust and mutual respect for one another. As Bashar, one of our software engineers, says, “our engineering culture is very mature. We sweat the details and hold ourselves accountable, moving as fast as possible without sacrificing quality.” While we may disagree and debate, we do it to push each other, our product, and company to the limits we know we’re capable of. Alicia, another member of the engineering team, adds, “We’re all working for a common goal. We make it a point to take everyone on the journey, understand how folks are feeling, any hesitations they might have, and take everyone’s input into account.”
Everyone on the team is “an excellent communicator, able to unblock themselves quickly, and takes ownership without waiting to be told what to do,” says James, one of our founding engineers. We’re also fortunate to have several senior engineers who bring a wealth of experience, knowledge, and mentorship to the team. Bashar has worked at big companies like Microsoft and Google doing a lot of scaling work; Zak is exceptional at figuring out how to prototype things; and Belinda is great at cutting through the noise on requirements and figuring out the actual problem we’re trying to solve and the fastest, best approach to take.
Last but not least, there’s a healthy degree of mentorship internally. As Bashar shares, “we have very thoughtful leaders, both technically and on the interpersonal side who set great examples. A lot of engineers help mentor and push each other, so we can improve what we do on a continuous basis.” Similarly, our cross-functional partners – like Michelle and Frank on the legal team – are also experts at what they do, furthering a high-trust environment. We strongly encourage you to get to know your fellow team members and offer a monthly stipend, so you can grab a virtual or in-person coffee or lunch with a coworker!
Our CEO, Barrie, was a founding member of a successful business (that is actually one of Sibi’s customers today) buying and managing over tens of thousands of homes in 18+ markets. In his role there, he wanted to more easily manage assets by ensuring that each home was identical (i.e. same tile flooring, appliances, etc.). However, he quickly realized that big-box suppliers carry regional inventory, and there wasn’t an effective route to buy directly from manufacturers. Thus, Sibi was born, a direct-to-manufacturer tech platform.
Our technology eliminates gatekeepers and enables direct-to-manufacturing relationships. Sibi views the property address as its true customer and understands the importance of the data that is attached to a specific address (warranties, building materials, appliances, paint, etc.) and makes that data accessible to help inform smarter decision-making.
Everything we do here is intentional and we have a strong vision for what we’re building and how we’re executing – down to every new hire we make. For example, Barrie wasn’t going to settle for just any CTO. After two years of courting, he finally convinced Olu to join the team. “What impresses me most about this team is we’re great at hiring people whose strengths complement the existing team’s skills, experiences, and backgrounds.”
Sibi is 100% self-funded and it’s safe to say we all have a voice and seat at the table. We’re very conscious about not creating an echo chamber. We look for folks who have different backgrounds, experiences, and viewpoints, following the example of David Goggins to “Be uncommon amongst uncommon people.”
A simple messaging workspace with tools for managers and staff on the go

We have been lucky to surround ourselves with great individuals. Everyone on our team is exceptionally talented in their respective fields, and this statement extends to our advisors. From an operating perspective, each person has been at small startups and seen success (acquisitions) to building bigger companies.

One of our senior frontend engineers, Lauren, was an opera singer and voice teacher before going to bootcamp and pivoting to tech. Stacie, our marketing platforms team lead, worked in social media and has a communications degree. Joy, one of our business operations associates, majored in ancient history (and business) in college. In fact, an informal poll of the engineering org showed we’re roughly 50-50 when it comes to having a CS degree. We are also ecstatic to announce that our very own Maggie Roque, Director of Diversity, Inclusion, Belonging, and Equity, has been recognized by Untapped as a ‘Walk the Walk’ Award winner, alongside the top DEIB leaders of 2022.
In other great news, we are honored to share that in 2022 we ranked #9 in the top 100 Most Loved Workplaces through Newsweek! This award is a result of feedback from our employees via surveys and platforms like Glassdoor and Comparably.
We're so proud of our teammates who make Zapier such an incredible place to work. Everyone is always willing to dig in and learn something new, whether it’s a backend engineer dabbling in the frontend or vice versa. As we grow, we’re looking for people who share that mentality and bring diverse skills, experiences, and viewpoints.

Co-founders Sanjay and Sharon met while working at Trucker Path, where they got their first introduction to the world of trucking. While scaling the product, they both formed a deep appreciation for the work that independent owner-operators and small fuel stops do, and recognized that they were largely being left out of certain benefits. In particular, Sanjay and Sharon were motivated to provide independent truckers with access to fuel discounts often given only to large fleets, while simultaneously providing small fuel stops with more customers. Enter Mudflap! Since then, they’ve been focused on building an excellent team and a product that truly helps truckers.
Our team members come from a wide range of companies including Meta, Postmates, Lyft, MasterCard, American Express, Sephora, Varo Money, Optimizely, and more. However, we know that “impressive” is more than just a company name. For example, Vineet, one of our engineers, appreciates the care, attention, and detail paid to good engineering practices and clean code: “What I find impressive is the fact that people on the team not only care about their work but also feel a shared sense of responsibility toward anything that is shipped. As teams grow, this isn’t easy to scale and people start sticking to their ‘area,’ but so far the team is full of people who care about this, and it’s evident from the comments on pull requests.”
Everyone shares a commitment and passion to create a product that is used by thousands, in an industry that impacts millions. As Gabriel, one of our software engineers, says, “There’s a high level of teamwork, curiosity, and critical thinking; everyone uses these skills to constantly make things better while also adding their unique touch.” If you’re interested in learning, growing, and building, regardless of your background and years of experience, then we want to hear from you!
When we selected the values for our profile, Impressive Team Members had unanimous support. If you ask any of us why we love working here, you’ll likely get the same answer: the people (you can meet the team here). As Benton puts it, “What impresses me most about the team is how humble and collaborative everyone is. Working on new integrations to close major deals can be stressful or exciting, and we always make it exciting!”
We believe in hiring the right people for the right job at the right time and aren’t looking for a certain university or brand name on your resume. Folks on the team hail from big companies like Stripe and Meta as well as smaller startups and we have a mix of backgrounds on the team. In addition to traditional CS degrees, academic backgrounds include mathematics and psychology.
As we grow, we’re looking for people who are excited to tackle interesting problems such as enhancing product recommendation logic, shipping a public Shopify app, and using data science to identify consumer behavior insights. If you’re equally thrilled about transforming how brands engage repeat customers, don’t hesitate to get in touch!
Our team was part of the founding team at DoorDash and CAVA. We’ve got several early DoorDash team members, as well as former execs from Momofuku, and engineers from Segment. That said, experience in the food tech industry isn’t a prerequisite to join the team and we’re open to many different kinds of backgrounds. Even more than expertise, we value first principles thinkers who won’t be constrained by convention. We also value multidisciplinary backgrounds, since the problems we solve are heavily multifaceted. In fact, several of the engineers on our team graduated from bootcamps and previously came from math, biotech, real estate, or psychology fields. This is a one-of-a-kind team to join for someone with an interdisciplinary background, who eventually wants to found a company themselves. You’ll receive mentorship and direct access to founders while experiencing first-hand what it's like to own a critical business function. If you’re passionate about helping local restaurants thrive, we encourage you to reach out.
We are backed by some of the most influential investors and highly respected VCs in the world. We have a smart, sharp set of advisors who are deeply engaged in seeing us succeed. Insofar as our team, some of us have worked at the great tech giants and influential disruptors, while many others have joined us from taking an off-the-beaten path or after running their own things.
Take Justin, our lead web engineer – before becoming an engineer he was a 2nd grade teacher. Or Chris, another one of our iOS engineers – he plays a seemingly infinite number of instruments! Molly, our senior brand designer, formerly worked at a boutique book binder and still practices the art of bookbinding by hand. Daniel, our product designer, is creating a series of sculptural art and just dropped his newest single on Spotify. Campbell, Joe’s executive assistant, designs wildly oversized pillows in the shape of hands.
More than any number of external factors though, all of us are here to build something special and enduring. The bottom line is that you’ll be joining an incredible group of people with an incredibly broad range of backgrounds and interests. Every single person has something to share with one another.
Here’s the full team:
We are proud of our collective experience and, most importantly, how committed we all are to our company’s four core values (SEEK):
