Thank you Tarmac for underwriting our Meet a Minnesota Tech CTO series, where we get up close and personal with Minnesota’s chief techies.

The CTO: Scott Brown, Zipnosis

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

I’ve been involved in technology since the early 80’s when I got my first computer, a TI-99, and began programming in BASIC.

After earning my BS in Aerospace Engineering from Iowa State University, I started my career customizing and implementing packaged ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software. From there I worked for a small, post-IPO startup scaling and internationalizing (I18N) their web-based, SaaS e-commerce platform.

After that, I worked in med-tech on FDA-regulated connected care systems for implanted devices; helped transition a hardware-based driver compliance and fleet management system to a cloud-hosted, mobile platform; and even had my own mobile healthcare startup for a while.

Finally, I landed at Zipnosis leading the Security, Product and Engineering teams.
