The CFO: Jenny Kray, Calabrio

When and how did you get started in your finance career, specifically within the technology industry?

I started my career in public accounting with KPMG Minneapolis in 1996. I left KPMG in 2000 after responding to a job ad in the Star Tribune for an Accounting Manager role at Microgistix, a software marketing company in the Warehouse District.

Then, in 2002, a former manager from KPMG reached out to me about an Accounting Manager role at Secure Computing Corporation, a network security company where I ended up working for almost seven years. In that seven-year period, I was a part of three acquisitions until we were acquired by McAfee in 2008.

At that point, I knew I had found my niche and wasn’t going to consider leaving the tech space.

JaredJared Sieling is a freelance software developer in Minnesota.

What initially sparked your interest in technology?

When I was real little my dad brought home an Apple II computer, with the big floppy disks, and I’d spend hours going through all the disks, starting them up, and seeing what their programs did. Mesmerized me. Of course, the games took up most my time, with Lode Runner being the best and Oregon Trail a close second. (Let the debate begin!)

What was the first programming language you learned?

Visual Basic. In 7th grade, I learned it to build a study tool for my geography class.
