Hello 👋

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

    Hi everyone! My name is Will Wagner and I am currently CTO at Coffee Meets Bagel, where I lead a team of 25 people. Prior to that I was CTO of YouCaring that eventually got acquired by GoFundMe. I also worked at SurveyMonkey as the VP of Engineering for 7 years and grew the engineering organization from around 16 to over 150 across 4 locations. Looking forward to meeting you!
