The CTO: Uriah Blatherwick, Learn To Live

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

I have been working in technology for 25 years. I’ve had a passion for computers since my grade school days (sparked by my first computer – a Commodore VIC-20 with its screaming 4K of memory and no drive). I started out in network administration and quickly expanded into web development.

Those early days of routers, switches, and firewalls gave me a leg up when it came to programming that has proven to be very valuable.

The CTO: Peter Fares, VidGrid

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

I’ve been working in tech since graduating from the University of Minnesota in 2013. Even though I got a degree in Electrical Engineering, founding VidGrid was too good of an opportunity to pass up. Before that, I’ve been coding since I took an introductory programming class in my freshman year of high school.

The CTO: Killian Brackey, Sezzle

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

I have been a tech hobbyist and enthusiast since the first time I got my hands on a personal computer. Throughout my educational history I have spent a lot of time programing, building websites, and testing networks and systems security. I began studying Economics at Columbia University but quickly felt the need to transition back to my passion within technology and moved to Computer Science at both Columbia and the University of Minnesota. I joined Sezzle right out of school and helped us build the team and product we have today.

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.)

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.
