Our team has been in the learning and development space for 15 years. From building the middleware that some of largest formal learning systems operate on, to developing the first learning analytics platform powered by xAPI, we’ve seen it all.
We’ve built a culture of autonomy, respect, and trust. Inside and outside our brightly colored walls, our team approaches each day with a basic set of principles that enables us to delight customers and build amazing products. One of our core values is “Be very real.” So, in the spirit of being real, here are three things we believe:
We’re also owned by Learning Technologies Group plc, a publicly traded company based in the United Kingdom. While some of our team members interact with them on a regular basis, most of us continue to focus on the work we’ve been doing for years. And, because LTG owns companies that may compete with Watershed partners, we passionately maintain our independence and reserve the right to refuse information and opportunities from other Group companies.
We weren’t kidding when we said our people are our most important asset. With backgrounds ranging from technical consultants and business owners to learning designers and educators, just to name a few, our team brings a diverse set of skills and personalities. Our experience spans a variety of industries, which means we offer perspectives that generally aren’t found in your typical tech company.
As Watershed’s media relations and editorial director, Abbey manages our brand and buzz. She enjoys a good mystery—especially if it features Hercule Poirot, n’est-ce pas?
Adam is a full-stack developer, working with the development team to produce new features, fix bugs, and update the Watershed app. Outside of work, you can find him in the gym preparing for Brazilian jiu-jitsu competitions.
As Watershed's vice president of sales, Bill brings years of experience in e-learning to the team. He loves the outdoors and previously sang and wrote songs in a Britpop-influenced band called Acrylic.
Brooks leads our client experience efforts. Everything from implementations to documentation falls into his world. He's our go-to guy when we need restaurant recommendations, celebrity news, or help navigating Watershed.
Geoff is the lead product designer and is responsible for designing every aspect of Watershed's app to ensure a great user experience. The former magician loves to listen to bluegrass music, plays cover songs on the mandolin, and wants to believe Bigfoot is real.
John is a developer who focuses on core product development and implementing new features. He is a classically trained guitarist and frequently schools us at ping pong.
Mike is our CEO, founder, and official company mascot. When he's not busy being our fearless leader, you can find him in the yoga studio or going on hikes with his dog Charles Augustus Rustici III.
Tim (aka “Chudy”) is one of Watershed's sales directors and has made it his mission to educate organizations about xAPI. Outside of the office, Chudy enjoys watching KU basketball and aspires to open his own restaurant.
