Chief Executive Officer
Aman Brar has an extensive background in leading technology companies through periods of high growth and has also held key corporate strategy and finance roles at Fortune 500 companies. As former president of Apparatus, Aman led the company through a $34.2 million acquisition by publicly traded and global consultancy, Virtusa, in 2015.
Recognizing the need for a method to boost recruiting productivity, Aman and his teammates launched Canvas, the first enterprise-grade text-based interviewing platform that enables recruiters to screen more job candidates and market employment brands.
Prior to Apparatus, Aman was vice president of business development for ChaCha Search, leading its corporate strategic partnership activities. Before returning to Indiana for graduate school, Aman lived in Mountain View, Calif., and led a team responsible for the nation’s first consumer DSL broadband service.

SVP Product Engineering
Jared Adams received a bachelor’s in computer information systems from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business. After working for Eli Lilly and Co. in internet infrastructure, he founded Synaptix and then merged it into a 15-year career as COO of Apparatus, which sold in 2014 to the publicly traded global consultancy Virtusa. Adams joined the founding team of Canvas after recognizing the need for a method to boost recruiting productivity. Canvas’ fast growth led to Jobvite’s ultimate acquisition of Canvas. Jobvite quickly recognized Adams as a top technology leader and elevated him to the position of senior vice president of product engineering.
Adams has always had an interest in working with people to build and sustain businesses, products, and services alike. From his first Usenet and Yahoo-gray-background experiences, to building hundreds of computers and websites, to scaling services, products, and accounts—he focuses on execution, and embraces the unexpected (of which there’s been plenty). He’d argue in favor of that though, as the unexpected is what keeps it interesting.
