Hello 👋
My next available slot is

  • Friday 10th Dec10:30 PM (GMT)

I’m Seth Sakamoto and I’m VP Engineering at TeamSnap. I was previously VP Engineering at Mixmax, Envoy, TuneIn, and Hipmunk. I’ve been in the industry over 27 years with highlights including Hipmunk, Intuit, and the Department of Defense. Been in management over 20 years (holy crap!). In parallel universes I’d be a teacher, structural engineer, psychologist, sociologist, therapist, general contractor, life coach, or full time programmer/never-went-into-management because each of those represent aspects I love most about my job.
