Developer In Residence,Fred
August 1st 2018
For the past six months, Jed has been helping USV build some much-needed tools to connect people at our 60+ portfolio companies to each other.
It has worked out well, so well that we decided to ask Jed to join us full time in a new role that we call Developer In Residence.
Why would a VC firm need a full-time software developer?
Well, we have always had people at USV who can code, but it was always a side thing, never our full-time job.
And there are things that we are doing at USV that require a full-time commitment to the code.
At USV, we are committed to helping our portfolio companies without asking them to do a lot of the work to enable that.
Ultimately that requires intelligence that is automated and that means writing and maintaining code.
And so I’m thrilled that we now have a full-time person at USV who is doing that for us and our portfolio.
