Hello I'm Russ and I'm the former Founder & CTO of Rainforest QA. We raised $50mm, built the company to 150 people and a 40 person engineering team at peak. We went through YC in Summer 12. Previous to that, I owned and ran a consultancy for startups & companies specializing in development, devops, architecture design and capacity planning.
