I’m Joining GroupMe! #)
It’s with incredible excitement that I announce I’m joining GroupMe as their first full time Business Development hire. I met Jared and Steve shortly after the TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon in April 2010, where they took agile development to a new level, releasing a beautiful product over the course of a weekend. Since then I’ve fallen in love with the service, we’ve become good friends, and it’s been tremendous to watch such smart guys attract the best people and build momentum.
It was GroupMe’s elegance and simplicity which attracted me the first time I played with it… But it’s their vision and opportunity at the intersection of groups, messaging, mobile, and social which really excite me. I’ve never been more excited about the opportunity to help grow a business, which is definitely what I love to do best, and I’m thrilled to be able to do this at GroupMe in 2011!
