Hi, I’m Brian Zotter, currently Head of Product Engineering at Medium helping them with the transformation to a subscription membership product. I arrived via an acquisition of YesPath, where I was CTO and Cofounder. I’ve very excited to join Plato. I’m looking forward to meeting you all and building some more great relationships!

Sorry, I am not currently available for mentoring sessions.
