BigPanda, the startup helping companies manage and respond to ops incidents faster, has hired Dan Chuparkoff as Director of Growth and Engagement through a partnership with Millennium Search, an executive search firm helping emerging startups and cutting edge technology companies find top talent.

BigPanda is an Israeli-based ops automation startup providing a SaaS solution to reduce noise and simplify troubleshooting for organizations with complex web operations environments. The platform helps companies manage the flow of operations data and alerts, and provides production stack visualization to make the identification of problems more efficient. Backed by Sequoia Capital, BigPanda is now establishing its headquarters in Menlo Park, CA.

“We are helping organizations clean up the overload of operations data and alerts, allowing them to better visualize the complex dependencies in their production stacks,” says Assaf Resnick, CEO of BigPanda. “When problems occur, BigPanda empowers companies to quickly identify root causes and take quicker action.”

With the establishment of its Bay Area headquarters, BigPanda began its search for a Director of Growth and Engagement. The company needed a proven marketing leader with the vision to define direction and the drive to successfully execute. As the company’s first marketing executive in the US, it was crucial that they have a passion for startup environments as well as a solid track record generating demand, creating powerful messaging and leveraging all channels to raise awareness and consideration within the industry for a young market offering. BigPanda turned to Millennium Search for their expertise in recruiting marketing executives for technology startups. Sandy Bleich, Senior Partner at Millennium Search, led the effort.

“Assaf and his team have an aggressive game plan for BigPanda,” says Bleich. “They needed a unique individual to take things to the next level. In the end, we found a great fit for their needs.”

The result of the search was the hiring of Dan Chuparkoff. Joining BigPanda from Atlassian, Chuparkoff was Group Manager of Product Marketing for JIRA, their IT workflow and issue management software solution. He brings extensive experience across product marketing and management as well as development.

“We are making bold moves, and cannot do so without proven and passionate talent behind us,” says Resnick. “Millennium Search delivered the well-rounded marketing leadership that BigPanda needs to continue gaining traction, growing and disrupting the space.”
