LOUISVILLE, Colo. – Mar. 9, 2020 – JumpCloud® today announced the promotions of three of its critical engineering staff, Jared Cantwell, Peter Gengler, and Charley Pinkerton to new roles as chief architects. The appointments are a result of JumpCloud’s extensive product and engineering team scaling in Colorado and its global engineering hubs.
Chief architects Cantwell, Gengler, and Pinkerton will provide the deep technology and architectural leadership required as the teams continue to scale, while working collaboratively in charting JumpCloud’s future roadmap.
“JumpCloud is pushing the technology boundaries in the identity and device management sector,” said Greg Keller, chief technology officer at JumpCloud. “We’re rethinking the traditional patterns of how these technologies have been designed and built over the last few decades, most importantly as a cloud-based platform with global scale. Jared, Peter, and Charley are exactly the type of leaders our growing product and engineering teams need to understand scale, progressive approaches, and most importantly, to never settle for the way it was.”
In their new roles, the newly appointed chief architects will concentrate on next generation platform development, large scale/distributed architecture, data engineering, and device trust technologies. As chief architects, Pinkerton, Cantwell and Gengler will also play critical roles in team formation, mentoring, and serve as key members of JumpCloud’s Office of the CTO.
