Periscope is built by a small team of hackers working out of a loft in San Francisco. We love our customers, greasy Indian food, great whiskey, and that moment when a blip in the data makes you say, "wait a minute…"
The Data Inquisitor
Rya moved to SF lured with the promise of lots of data. She quickly fell in love with Periscope, and the rest is history. At Periscope, she has turned her inquisitive mind towards product management and making Periscope the analytics tool of the future.
Austin almost became a computer architect but in the nick of time moved to California to study data analytics. Previously he helped build science pipelines at Quantifind & Stanford, and is now excited to be engineering at Periscope.
This born and bred New Yorker moved cross country to San Francisco to live in the heart of the tech community. With a tenured history in digital ad sales he left Yelp to help build the future of sales at Periscope.
Originally from the Northwest, Michael is a huge Seahawks fan. He started his tech career at Hoopla Software where he sold sales gamification and engagement software. At Periscope he is helping to build the sales department.
The Growth Hacker
Jon joined Periscope to scale marketing and help bring smiles to the faces of SQL analysts everywhere. Before Periscope, Jon consulted startups on growth and ran his own marketing course startup.
After leaving Google to join Periscope, Jason promptly began rebuilding Periscope's backend services in Go. Before Google, Jason was lord of backend engineering at SF-based startup Tokbox.
The Mad Scientist
Ganz joined Periscope from Google, where he ran dozens of A/B tests on the search results page, generating billions in new revenue. At Periscope he hacks on all levels of the stack.
The Speed Demon
Periscope was started in Tom's apartment, where he built the first version of the product in a weekend. He leads Periscope's engineering efforts, and holds the coveted customer-facing bugfix record. (10 minutes!)
The Customer Advocate
Harry handles Periscope's customer support, sales, office hunting, whiskey buying, and website copywriting. In his spare time he still checks in a little code, much to the annoyance of the other engineers.
We are backed by some of the smartest, most helpful investors in the known universe.
