Key Accomplishments

I previously built a custom POS solution for small business, that focused on providing the analytics and BI reporting the big POS installs focus on, but are neglected for the computerized cash-registers most small scale POS system limit themselves to be. I've worked since then as an engineer leading the Big Data efforts for Return Path and later their Anti-Abuse product strategy for ISPs

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I bring a combined product and customer discovery process oriented mindset along with the technical chops to get the product out the door

Vouch for them.

Pete Warden
They're my friends
I've known Jacob for years, and I've admired both his talent for engineering and his people skills. He's humble, painfully smart, and a plea ... sure to work with. Anybody would be lucky to snag him as a co-founder.
Eric Wendelin
We worked together at Return Path
Jacob is very, VERY smart yet he does not let his intelligence interfere with the needs of a business. He is resourceful and pragmatic. He s ... peaks well with technical and non-technical people.

Eric Rosenberg
They're my friends  •  Senior Financial Analyst, Fiserv and Independent Business Owner, Narrow Bridge Media.
Eric has a knack for finding niche and hammering on it relentlessly. He has a track record already of building internet side businesses and ... is a great networker. He would be an asset to any founding team.
