Chief Technology Officer

Amir Hermelin

Built successful products from MVP to mass adoption for companies of all sizes, scaling teams and products with razor-sharp focus to achieve winning market positions. Joined Google Cloud when there was <$20m revenue and helped scale the business to over $1b/quarter through innovative and differentiated products and services. Prior to Google headed Riverbed’s Granite product line which more than doubled Riverbed’s annual revenue from ~$300m to over $800m.

I’m also a mentor and angel invest in innovative startups that are helping people live better lives. I *love* working with driven, talented individuals and sharing their sense of purpose! I advise on product strategy and market fit, building lean MVP and scaling to mature products, and leveraging cloud technologies to get things done 10x faster (my first Google Cloud customer engagement was then 8-person Snapchat).
