San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 20, 2014
Nitrous.IO, the highly popular developer tools company, is thrilled to announce that David Dollar has joined the company as its VP of Technical Operations.
In his new role, Dollar, the former leader of the Developer Experience team at Heroku, will help extend and expand the Nitrous.IO service as it continues to become the de-facto platform for professional developers to create and ship software products in an agile manner.
Dollar spent the past 5 years as a software engineer, lead architect and developer experience leader at Heroku, a subsidiary of SalesForce.com, that revolutionizes how developers deploy web applications. While at Heroku, Dollar was responsible for the overall developer experience and many of Heroku's developer-facing tools, including buildpacks, the command line client (CLI) and the Heroku Toolbelt. David is also the creator and maintainer of the widely used Foreman project and a leader in the open source community.
“There’s so much raw talent and innovation at Nitrous.IO,” Dollar said. “I am incredibly excited to see what we can achieve. Nitrous.IO provides developers a modern development environment experience so that they can focus on rapidly creating and delivering great experiences for their customers rather than being bogged down in the particulars of deploying code.”
“Businesses today rely on internal and customer-facing software to respond quickly to changing market conditions. At Nitrous.IO, our vision is to enable the people creating this software with the modern tools they need to deliver agility to their businesses," said AJ Solimine, Nitrous.IO co-founder and CEO. “David shares our passion for improving software development workflows and will play a key role in bringing our vision to life. I’m extremely excited to have him on the team.”
Nitrous.IO is on a mission to modernize the software development toolkit for developers by delivering the world’s most advanced tools to create and manage environments. With a razor sharp focus on achieving the best user experience imaginable, Nitrous.IO has attracted over 150,000 developers to a better way of building and shipping software since its public launch in 2012.
Nitrous.IO is backed by Bessemer Venture Partners, CrunchFund and 500 Startups and has offices in Singapore and San Francisco, California.
