Podcast Guest: Jordan Rinke
Technically inclined executive with 7 years of team leadership and startup growth experience:
Leading teams from 4 to 20 people in size on highly technical tactical and responsive issues. Managing the teams that have helped a number of startups secure funding from $50k to $1.5MM+ and effectively utilizing that investment to grow a sustainable energetic culture and product portfolio.
Before that I accrued 10 years of dev/eng experience (6 years of fortune 50 company experience, 4 years at one of the world’s largest cloud providers) doing OS deployment (DevOps before it was a buzz word) and driver integration for environments with over 150,000 devices giving me a unique perspective on large scale deployment scenarios.
