Matt has spent the last 13+ years as a developer and manager in startups and large corporations, most recently joining RISE as CTO. He has led teams through org restructures, engineering process initiatives, production incidents, and daunting deadlines while maintaining morale, quality, velocity, and release commitments. He's an ever curious leader who believes life is too short to do something that doesn't fulfill you. Matt believes deeply in using data to drive decisions, including analytics and customer feedback. He doesn't just graph and monitor things at work he's fully instrumented his side projects and even graphed his infant son's feeding and diaper change data!
