CTO And Data Scientist From Spotify, Volvo Ocean Race, Red Bull, And More...
Epicly Talented Entrepreneurs And Engineers Joining Littlstar
We are proud to announce that we brought on two new killers joining us from Spotify. Joseph Werle will be taking over the reigns as CTO. He was previously at App Nexus before Spotify, and has tremendous experience building very large scale consumer streaming applications, monetization technology, and high performance video playback. He's been involved with Littlstar since the very beginning and we're thrilled to have him. Wells Johnston is joining us as Chief Data Scientist. He's a math genius and incredible full stack engineer, and brings a ton of big data and analytics experience to Littlstar.
VR requires an entirely different stack for analytics, story telling, tools, and tracking, and both of these gentlemen bring a wealth of knowledge for capturing and moving around the huge amounts of data we're dealing with. Are you a talented VR, Unity, or native mobile developer? We want to chat! Hit us up here to join an awesome team of successful repeat entrepreneurs, VR, streaming, and data nerds.
