I’m happy to share that Erik Neff has joined the Gigmor team as CTO/Head of Product. Erik is taking charge of our ambitious product roadmap to build a SaaS-powered artist booking marketplace that will disrupt the live music industry and create more jobs for musicians.
Erik is equally talented as both a creative and technology professional—a rare combination. Since 2008, he’s worked with LA-based interactive design agencies where he was CTO and oversaw UX Design for clients such as Twitter, Foot Locker, Tom’s Shoes, and VMWare. He graduated from the University of Western Ontario with an Honors degree in Computer Science. True to Gigmor tradition, he has been a performing artist his whole life (classical piano, guitar, and EDM live sampling).
Here’s his ethos:
“Connect before you direct. Connection is the key. Whether it’s work or life, if you can feel a person’s pain, their needs, their ambitions, their delights, then you can think and act with empathy. That is what makes life worth living, and work worth doing.”
In a short period of time, Erik has already made a huge difference. He’s made important improvements to our subscription plans and the nightly gig alert system among many other projects.
