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: Jay Dorenkamp, Jamf

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

I’ve been in the software space for more than 30 years. I’ve worked on some of the lowest levels of software in operating systems to higher levels in the software stack, delivering enterprise web applications.

I graduated from Iowa State University (ISU) with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering with an emphasis in software design and development. When I started at ISU, this was a relatively new program. (Fun fact – my two sons also graduated from ISU with the same degree, and it’s been interesting to see how the program has evolved and expanded.)

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.

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

John Orosco is the CTO of Minneapolis-based Sansoro Health, makers of the Emissary platform for exchanging real-time health care data between digital health applications and electronic medical records.

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

When I started my college career, I wanted to be an accountant until I started taking accounting classes and quickly realized that was not the path for me. I then turned my attention to business management and computer science.

I enjoyed the programming classes a great deal and completed my degree in Management Information Systems at Iowa State in 1998. I joined Cerner Corporation as a software engineer after graduation which is where my professional career began. I have been in healthcare information technology ever since.

What are you focused on right now?

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

In college, I learned about something called a “web page” from my accounting professor. I was intrigued by this strange new concept, and he was willing to invest some time teaching a number of us students “HTML.” Within an hour, I was hooked.

Peter Kirwin is the CTO of edutech startup UR Turn — the developers of software designed to help students stay on track.

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

I’ve always really enjoyed programming. I began seriously working with code in school for numerical simulation in physics and economics. I got into web application development in my first startup about 10 years ago. I was the industry person, not a programmer, but the programmers let me get involved with some of the math-intensive backend stuff, and got hooked.

Steve Brain is the newly named CTO at Drip, which is now a separate company from Leadpages.

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

I’m now at 28 years working in tech—23 years of it in technical leadership. However, I started programming at 11 years old and published three books on programming in high school, so “working” in tech is longer than that. I used the high school time to fund skiing
despite growing up in South Wales.
