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.
Co-founder & CPO
Tony has worn all the hats at a variety of hardware and software companies over the past eight years. Today, he finds himself most passionate about building software products that solve human problems. As such, Tony sees the opportunity to help build LaunchNotes as a dream come true. If you're passionate about the product development process or ever want to share your own experiences managing product change, he'd love to hear from you: tony [at] launchnotes.io
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.
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.
Michelle is a multidisciplinary designer who has fallen in love with creating thoughtful user experiences at small SaaS startups. As a former medical illustrator, she is fiercely passionate about data-driven design and leveraging research to deliver beautiful, intuitive, and delightful products. Michelle is thrilled to be working at a company that champions usability and excited to create the best possible experience for teams communicating critical product changes.
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.
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.
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.
We're fortunate to have the investment, support, and guidance of the industry's best.
