The CTO: Brian Walerius, Total Expert

How long have you been working in technology for and what is your technical background?

Technology has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. As a kid, I would spend most of my free time in front of a computer. My first exposure to programming was when I was young and I did simple BASIC commands. I received a degree in Computer Science from the University of Minnesota and I have worked in various tech roles utilizing several different technologies, languages, and applications.

What are you focused on right now?

We are heavily focused on growing our team and expanding our solution. We have a very innovative and aggressive roadmap for 2017. We take a lot of pride in being innovative and moving fast.

The CTO: Alicia Cermak, ArcStone

How long have you been working in technology for and what is your technical background?

I’ve been working in technology professionally for nearly 15 years, and have been interested in computers for almost as long as I can remember. I got started when my dad brought home our family’s first computer (a Tandy 1000 HX) and gave me free rein on it, which led to web design as a hobby in my pre-teen years, web development and computer repair in my teens, and eventually a traditional computer science education.

Professionally, I’ve worked as both a developer and a systems administrator, which I find gives me something of a unique perspective.

The CTO: Derek Rucker, Carrot Health

How long have you been working in technology for and what is your technical background?

I’ve been in technology all my life. My 8th grade science fair project was a rudimentary database and front-end I created on my Apple IIe. My undergrad is in engineering from MIT, and my PhD and MBA are from the University of Michigan. I learned HTML in grad school, made a bunch of websites for friends and family, but chose to continue my studies rather than becoming part of the dotcom boom. Still not sure if that was a good move or a bad one.

The CTO: Tom Healy, InboxDollars

How long have you been working technology for and what is your technical background?

I’ve been working in product development for the past 25 years with a focus on front end user experience and backend database performance and scalability.
 

After college I had the option of playing it safe and working at a fortune 100 company but instead rolled the dice with a startup company founded by a few IBM execs that eventually went public. Building upon that positive startup experience, I co-founded a SaaS analytical applications company and eventually landed at InboxDollars where I’ve been since 2008.
