About us

Hi there, 👋

We're glad you're here! Thanks for taking some time to visit our site and learn more about the product and the team behind it.

LaunchNotes was built by three people who have collectively spent over 25 years in the software industry. In this time, the three of us have been on almost every side of the software development process: Engineering, Support, Marketing, Growth, and Sales.

Through these various lenses, we've seen firsthand that building successful products takes far more than just fast delivery times and increased uptime. More code into the hands of customers is a fantastic outcome, but not at the cost of a subpar customer experience.

We built LaunchNotes to enable entire organizations to move at the same speed as their dev teams, no matter how fast those teams may be shipping software. Imagine the elevated user experience when entire organizations move synchronously together, at speed. When every team across the business has the information they need to regularly surprise and delight customers.

LaunchNotes delivers a solution that helps organizations do exactly this. It provides the right updates to the right people at the right time so that no one, internally or externally, is ever surprised by product changes, and everyone gets the full intended value out of every release.

Questions? Thoughts? Feedback? Just want to talk shop? We'd love to hear from you anytime: hey [at] launchnotes.io. Want to see LaunchNotes in action? Check out our team's public release stream: updates.launchnotes.io.

Thanks again for stopping by!

The team behind LaunchNotes

Tyler Davis

Co-founder & CEO


Having sat on both sides of the aisle (sales / marketing and product / engineering), Tyler has seen first-hand how challenging it can be to find a common ground where everyone can speak about technology effectively. He's incredibly passionate learning how teams at scale are working together to build better customer experiences.

Jake Brereton

Co-founder & COO


Jake has spent over a decade building and scaling GTM teams and acquisition engines, from startups to publicly traded companies. As Head of Marketing for Jira at Atlassian, his team supported 30+ PMs and their respective workstreams. Over time, with the increase in speed and volume of software being shipped, staying ahead of the curve on release comms became nearly impossible. When the opportunity to be a part of the solution arose, he seized it.

Michael Simmons

Sr. Customer Success Manager


Michael’s biggest claim to fame is that he was Atlassian’s first Sales Development Rep — a title he still holds to this day. However, Michael's passion for working with customers goes far beyond Sales, and over the years he's worn multiple Business Development and Customer Success hats. Michael is proud to represent a company that puts its customers first, and furthermore a business that helps each of these customers create more delightful experiences for their users.

Matt has spent his career helping small companies grow, and is passionate about building the products, teams, and processes that enable these companies to scale as they do so. A software engineer by trade, Matt's also held the title of Product Owner, Engineering Manager, and QA Engineer. In each of these roles he's seen firsthand how vital it is that internal teams stay aligned and in sync with the product development process, and he's excited to help build a solution to this problem.

Bryce Holcomb

Software Engineer


A recovering financial analyst and self-taught coder, Bryce has been working and enamored with startups since his undergrad years. Following a brief stint in wealth management after college, Bryce spent the next six years knee-deep in software development, building everything from labor marketplaces to legal tech to business intelligence tools. Having experienced the pain of poor product change comms this entire time, he is particularly passionate about building an effective and elegant solution.

Blake Ziolkowski



Having spent the first 8.5 years of his career in GTM positions at a variety of SaaS companies, Blake has experienced firsthand the pain when customer-facing teams aren't properly aligned with their own PDLC. After recognizing this problem wasn't unique to teams and companies he worked with, Blake became enamored with the change communication space, and how to solve this problem. He believes LaunchNotes is not another tool, but a key that unlocks a new super-power for teams everywhere.
