Jamie Tillman - Chief Executive Officer and Lead Architect
Jamie started off as a musician and writer, but discovered he was usually tinkering with computers instead of "working." Then he found out people would actually pay him to do what he would have done for free, anyway.
Throughout his career, Jamie has filled a variety of roles -- solo programmer, team lead, VP of Product Development, even CEO and co-owner of a multi-million dollar software company. He has served some of the largest State government agencies in the USA, non-profits and for-profits of all sizes, and upstart entrepreneurs with nothing but an idea and a nest-egg. He lives in Tallahassee with his wife and 2 kids.
