One of Chris' favorite Thumbtack traditions is having lunch with his fellow co-workers. Employees gather every weekday to enjoy delicious home cooked meals prepared by the company's amazing culinary team. Chris loves the warm, incredibly friendly atmosphere that unites everyone from all parts of the company—sitting all together at a big table and enjoying each other’s company.
Faced with constant changes due to Thumbtack's accelerating growth, Chris and his teams are continuously exploring new innovative approaches to expand Thumbtack’s technology and apply big data. On the engineering side, Chris oversees re-architecting of Thumbtack's platform, prepping products for future months ahead. He also monitors the Data Science Team’s analysis of Thumbtack's marketplace dynamics—providing teams with fundamental data to improve Thumbtack’s platform.
“The consumer retail space has been online for many years, but no company has taken a stab at consumer services in the same way as consumer products. Thumbtack moved into that space—and that's really inspiring.”
“I'm excited for the future. There's so much potential to change the lives of so many people who are just trying to run their business and get stuff done.”
