We’re excited to share a major development in what we believe to be one of the most important decisions we will make for the company. After considering hundreds of leading candidates for the CTO role we have been focused on filling, we have concluded our decision and couldn’t be more excited about the individual we’ve selected.
Given the significance of this decision - not only being the chief technology role, but also the ownership/co-founder nature of it, as well - we didn’t rely on traditional prospecting and hiring methods alone. More than two months ago, we asked our strongest candidate for the job, to join the company on a full-time, but temporary basis for the purposes of putting our theories into practice in all respects: cultural, leadership, technical expertise, etc. We could not be happier with the experience. And as a result of this, we could not be more confident about our selection.
We have reached a deal which is now being solidified legally, after which we can disclose more details, however, for the time being, I can tell you a little bit about his background:
- Masters in Computer Engineering with Computer Vision Specialization
- 10 years of computer vision experience
- 2 X Founder
- Leadership experience spanning a Y Combinator technology startup, as well as one of the top 5 largest corporations in the US
Our work to integrate company leadership, solidify our product roadmap, and continue to develop systems and resources for the months and years ahead, is all underway. We will share additional details in the near future.
This is something that we have worked tirelessly to get right, and we couldn’t be happier about being able to announce the progress we’ve made. As always, thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to being able to share more exciting news with you as it unfolds.
