Key Accomplishments

I've been working with the Web for over a decade, with most of those years spent helping evolve Mozilla from a small team of 10 to a global company of 800+ employees and thousands of contributors around the world. I left in 2010 for new challenges at TiVo, where I helped build a strategy to bring more apps to their platform and developed relationships with companies to bring innovative experiences to the TV and mobile devices. I joined Box in 2012 to focus on their freemium business with projects that spanned user experience, data analytics, and lead generation as part of the product marketing team. After a short stint at Hightail juggling product management and marketing duties, I'm currently Web Product Manager at Atlassian, where I'm responsible for the user experience of our web properties, including,, and

I have worn many hats throughout my career, from engineering to marketing to product... all of which helped me bring a unique perspective to business school at Berkeley Haas, where I caught the entrepreneurial bug. Since then, I have co-founded a company, advised a few, and have most recently been working on a few ideas that I would love to take to the next level.

But if another great idea and team come together that I can be passionate about... I'm game for that too.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

In a nutshell, I bring enough technical background combined with a strong design sense, marketing savvy, and passion for creating new things. I love bringing people together to turn ideas into action and believe I can lead a team from concept to viable product or service.

I love getting to know teams to learn more about what everyone's strengths are, where the gaps might be, and then working together to compliment each other and drive our ideas and passion forward.

They're my school
Jay is one of a very rare set of people who can blend technical skills and soft skills. My mantra when I was starting up a company for our ... Chief Engineer was to Find a Jay Patel- someone who can work with the team doing the coding but be just as fluid in building a killer consumer experience.
