CTO at Human Interest

Hello 👋

Unfortunately, I don't have any available slot for the next 4 weeks

    Hello everyone! I’m Paul Mason and am currently the CTO of Human Interest. We’re a small fintech startup in the 401(k) space that is currently entering the “growth phase”. Before Human Interest, I was the VP Engineering at Xero and helped grow the SF and Canberra teams collectively from 45 to 85 people - so all in all, I’m very happy to be given a chance to do this again. I’m an avid fan of Rust and have been involved with that community for many years now. Since I don’t get to code at work, in my spare time I maintain an open source Decimal library (written in Rust) which helps keep my coding skills sharp. Very excited to be part of this community and help out others where I can!
