Web Manager [ Jul 2013 - Jan 2015 ]

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

GoGrid started life as a web hosting provider in downtown San Francisco. Even before GoGrid, the company was known as Servepath and Coloserve. By the time I started work there, it had morphed into a self service cloud hosting provider and was pitching itself as the best multi-cloud technology solution. It was acquired by Datapipe in January 2015 but just before that, it was trying to make inroads into Big Data Solutions and Managed Cloud Services.

The role reported into the Software Business Development group.

In essence, I had three roles in what was a startup environment. I was Web Manager for their Corporate site and various micro sites, I did some Interaction design for their cloud apps and also some SaaS Administration for things like LivePerson, Pardot and SaleForce.
