Vice President of Engineering
After graduating from the University of Washington with a B.S. in Computer Science, Thomas joined Vertafore, the leading provider of insurance software solutions. Early in his time there, he was tasked with serving as a founding member of the team to re-architect the enterprise product offering. As a results of the project, the product went from losing customers to becoming one of the fastest-growing company offerings. Following the successful completion of this project, Thomas helped form the team responsible for creating standards and solutions for all of Vertafore’s engineering efforts, including the creation of a UI platform used on all product offerings company-wide. In 2013, Thomas followed his passion for entrepreneurship and joined Jobalign, where he quickly gravitated to providing the best possible experience for the job seeker. In this role, he increased candidate efficiency and satisfaction by more than 60 percent. Now as director of engineering, Thomas leads the engineering and product teams to provide the next generation of candidate and employer experience.
