Chief Technology Officer
Ali Syed, Jobvite’s Chief Technology Officer, joined Jobvite in 2008 and is the driving force behind the Jobvite infrastructure and the continual innovation of our products and platform. With over 20 years of software research and development experience, including many years at Sun Microsystems where he built “Platform as a Service” and developer tools, Ali’s passions boil down to two things: building things and soccer. Ali is a regular contributor and consumer of open source technologies and likes applying them to continually improve recruiting software. After hours, he can be found playing badminton, soccer, futsal, ping pong, foosball, or FIFA with jobvite buddies.
“I knew that i wanted to be an engineer when I was 4 years old and started programming in elementary school. I suppose that my path was destined. After all, my favorite saying is, “There are no coincidences.””
