Jobs at Truss
At Women 2.0 Founder Labs in 2011, Everett pitched an idea to make calendars more useful for executive assistants. That app, called Tetherpad, was the original DNA of Truss. With cofounders Mark & Jen, they grew the company with the same intent -- how to make technology responsive to our time, attention and energy. Everett's expertise is in customer development, a technique that combines customer behavior with ethnography to inform product and business development.
Everett was head of Customer Acquisition and Community for Linden Lab. He is a Webby Award Honoree as the product lead for Bottlenotes Mobile, a social wine app. He has an MBA and M.Ed in design & technology from Stanford, and BSEE in Biomedical and Electrical Engineering from Duke. He was a full-tuition AB Duke Scholar and won the NCAA National Championship in soccer, the first in any sport for Duke. He can be found making up sous-vide recipes with his favorite sous chef, his daughter.
Mark was one of the engineers that helped fix Healthcare.gov in 2013-2014 during the "tech surge". Mark is one of the pioneers of Dev Ops as he built one of the first cloud computing teams for Linden Lab in 2006 and was Amazon Web Services largest customer. Mark's team also built the ecommerce platform for Linden Lab.
Mark graduated from UC Berkeley in Computer Science and is an avid cyclist, including raising money for the yearly AIDS ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles.
Jen has doubled the performance of APIs operating at rates of over 10,000 requests per second and led petabyte-scale data analysis operations, saving millions of dollars per annum. Jen has experience at nearly every level of the stack from user-facing applications down to and including silicon.
Jen earned Highest Honors in her degree of BS in Computer Engineering at UC Santa Cruz. In her free time she enjoys designing systems ranging from electronics for interactive fire art to thriving zero-water-use native gardens in the desert.
