Welcome Charlie Morss, Our New VP of Engineering
We’re thrilled to welcome Charlie Morss, former CTO of Urbanspoon, as Apptentive’s new VP of Engineering!
When we first met Charlie, it was clear he would fit right in with our Apptentive family. Charlie brings over 15 years of executive leadership experience in software development, mobile technology, and platform strategy to our team. He’ll be leading development of Apptentive’s products to support our rapid growth (we’ve doubled in size since January) and to help expand our existing customer base.
A bit about Charlie
Before joining Apptentive, Charlie was CTO Urbanspoon and then of Zomato USA when Zomato acquired Urbanspoon. There he oversaw and assisted in the design, development and testing of all architectural components of a location aware application for both iOS and Android platforms to power the Urbanspoon apps which had a user base estimated at 31 million. Prior to that he was the CTO at Audiosocket where he managed a team of developers, defined the architectural direction and developed growth strategies, and the Chief Architect at AdReady where he managed the platform architecture. He has also held roles as VP of Engineering at Progressive Solutions, Software Architect at eSage Group, and Sr Software Developer/Architect at AT&T Wireless. He has a BS in Computer Science from the Rochester Institute of Technology.
Here’s what Charlie has to say about joining the team: “I’m excited to join this impressive team with a product that makes a significant impact on the success of our customer’s apps. I’m looking forward to helping take the company to the next level and continue to delight customers.”
We want our community to get to know each and every new team member as they begin their Apptentive journeys, so here are a few fun facts:
1) Outside of work, how do you spend your time?
CM: I’m a total cycling fanatic. I’m starting to train for a 1/2 Ironman (if my injury-prone feet will let me).
2) Favorite thing to do/place to go in Seattle?
CM: Curl up on the couch in front of the fireplace with my wife and two dogs.
3) If the apocalypse came down to zombies and unicorns, which group would win?
CM: Zombies—’cause they’re awesome!
Welcome to the team, Charlie! With zombies on your side, we think you’ll do just fine here.
