I’m Jason Crawford, former co-founder & CTO of Kima Labs in San Francisco. Kima was acquired by Groupon in Feb 2012, and I spent a year there as engineering lead at Groupon’s main engineering office in Palo Alto.
Before SF, I was in Seattle, most recently as Lead Engineer for Mobile Software at Pelago, the makers of Whrrl and the first investment out of Kleiner Perkins’ iFund. Prior to that I ran the Landing Page Optimization team at Amazon.
Before Seattle I spent three years in New York doing tech ventures in the D. E. Shaw group, including two years at D. E. Shaw Research working on Anton, a supercomputer for biomolecular modeling and simulation. I did computer science at Carnegie Mellon University (Class of 2001).
