Chris Shaffer

I have over a decade of experience building technology. That experience ranges from teams in the hundreds to just myself, from pre-series A startups to companies older than my grandparents. I’ve built software and teams for startups – twice – that transformed the definition of “technology” in the office’s vernacular from “that thing that’s always broken” to “the competitive advantage that pushes us forward when all else fails”.

If you have a business, and you use technology, there’s probably something I can bring to the table. That includes all the things that you typically think of: writing code, setting up deployments, cybersecurity, database admin; and some you might not: hiring, mentoring, developing policies and procedures, and setting strategic direction. If you’re doing good work, bringing joy to customers, or making the world a better place, I want to be part of it.

After graduating with a Bachelor's and Master's in Computer Science from Stevens Institute of Technology, Chris went on to develop his career in application architecture, software development, and data engineering. He's worked on financial, business, and consumer platforms as Chief Technology Officer at Climb Credit, as Director of Engineering at Relationship Science, and at Capital IQ.
