I’m delighted to announce Jon Gifford as the new addition to Loggly’s founding partners. Jon will be taking on the roll of CTO at Loggly, and will acting as Chief Architect for the project. Jon hails from New Zealand, by way of Australia, and did stints at LookSmart, Technorati, Scout Labs, and recently his own startup, Minimal Loop. Jon is a search technology guru who is capable of accelerating search far beyond that of mere mortal men. If you don’t believe me, just try to go search for him on Google. Frankly, I have no clue how he does it. Trust me folks, a bunch of those those results are not him.
As for the rest of the team, Raffy is now officially our COO and Chief of Product (BTW, Swiss PMs rule), and I’ll be serving as our Geek CEO and Chief Evangelist. All three of us will be coding on Loggly over the next few months, and with a dash of a soon-to-be-announced designer, we’ll be assembling the framework needed for getting Loggly up and running in private beta over the coming months.
I’m really excited to be working with such smart and capable individuals. I can’t wait to start working with equally smart and capable partners and customers.
See you in your logs!
