New Faces At CloudWerx

Our family is growing and we can’t keep it to ourselves! We’d like to take this chance to formally introduce you to the four newest team members of the CloudWerx Team. Each of these individuals brings a unique set of skills and experience that we believe will help us continue to innovate and provide 11/10 service to our customers.

First, join us in welcoming Sidhant Gupta as our new Chief Technology Officer. He joins CloudWerx with experience as a former director of product incubation at Microsoft and holds a substantial background in research, development, and commercialization. Graduating with a PhD from the University of Washington’s Computer Science & Engineering department, and holding 18 full-utility patents, Sidhant has previously worked on complex hardware and software systems across healthcare, interaction design, security, and sustainability. He will be essential to our expansion in the coming years and will bring our engineering offerings to the next level.

In January, we announced the appointment of Saurabh Singh as our new Principal Cloud Architect. Saurabh comes to us with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the cloud computing industry. An experienced Software Engineer with a demonstrated history of working in the wireless industry Saurabh has a proven track record of success. His skills in Embedded Software, Device Drivers, WIFI RF, LTE protocols, DSP design and systemC modeling will make him key in shaping the future of engineering at our company. As Principal Cloud Architect, Saurabh will be responsible for leading our team of cloud architects, collaborating with clients to design and implement cloud-based solutions, and driving innovation in our cloud offerings.

We are also excited to introduce Jeff Guilfoyle as our new Vice President of Sales. With 10+ years of experience in the public cloud and software, Jeff has a proven track record of driving revenue growth through innovation and optimization for companies with a specific focus on digital transition, innovation, and strategy. Jeffrey will be responsible for leading our outstanding GCP consultants and developing strategies to drive new business and increase customer retention. His skill in sales leadership, customer engagement, and team leadership will be invaluable in accelerating our growth and expanding our customer base.

Then, there’s Jimmy Steinmetz, who brings a wealth of experience to his role as Data and Analytics Team Lead. Jimmy's expertise is drawn from his time as Crossroads CX as co-founder and Chief Analytics Officer, utilizing an array of tools to generate top-quality insights from data across multiple verticals. Jimmy developed both proprietary and open-source solutions to tackle some of today's most complex data problems and he will be instrumental in enhancing our data analytics capabilities and helping our customers gain new insights into their business operations.

Finally, we are proud to welcome Chris Birk as our new Application Development Team Lead. Chris graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Computer Science and has founded several startups and nonprofits in addition to Crossroads CX with Jimmy. Chris led the development team that built open source applications to help citizens engage with legislators on proposed legislation. These applications were implemented by the US Congress, White House, and even the Government of Mexico. In his new role at CloudWerx, Chris will lead the Application Development team and help clients optimize their applications on GCP. We know our clients will be in good hands as Chris ensures their applications are secure, cost-optimized, and performant using current infrastructure best practices.

As we continue to grow and expand our offerings, we believe that these new hires will play a crucial role in helping us achieve our ambitious goals. We look forward to working with Sidhant, Jeff, Jimmy, and Chris and seeing the impact they will make at CloudWerx as we push the boundaries of what's possible in the cloud computing space. Keep an eye out for more updates soon. We have many exciting things in the “werks.”
