John’s first job enabled him to combine two loves—technology and music. He spent a summer in England building a database for Peter Gabriel, who John calls “the Beyonce of his day." John’s held technology leadership roles at both startups and large financial services companies, and when he got a call from Lending Club, he jumped at the chance to build the Technology Team.
John spends the majority of his day meeting with various teams across the organization. He works most closely with the Executive Team to strategize new initiatives for the business. His favorite part of the day is the daily stand-up meeting at the end, discussing achievements with his Engineering Leadership Team.
